Ideally located a few minutes walk to the main part of Windermere. We were able to walk to Bowness take the boat to Ambelside which is truly magical. Nick was a great host, gave friendly service and the breakfasts were superb. Would definitely recommend and will return.

The staff were all very helpful and provided advice around things to do in the local area. The room was clean, comfortable and very quaint, with... More

We had a great time in the Ravensworth. Perfect distance to the town and busstation. Breakfast was good, room and bed also. This place is perfect for a holiday in the lakes. Thank you for the service.

We received a warm welcome from Nick who was very knowledgeable about the area and gave us some great advice of where to go and what to see. The room was very clean, the shower was hot and the breakfast was adequate, with some lovely... More

The hotel is quite small but it's nicely appointed. The WIFI is virtually impossible to get in the rear outside rooms but you can go to the guest lounge. The breakfast was nice but they obviously are very portion control conscious. The host - Nick - was very helpful. The car park is a bit tricky so we opted to... More

I'm going back 5 years, 2010 my then partner (now Wife) and I had a wonderful winter weekend at this cozy little guesthouse in a truly stunning location. Upon arrival, Nick was extremely welcoming, but not over the top or intrusive, he gave us hints on where to eat and drink, and directions to the lake and Windemere town. He... More
