The Cottage is close to Winderemere station (about 2 minutes away) and also near to attractions such as Orrest Head and Queen Adelaide's Hill as well as Bowness (a 20 minute walk away). Wendy was happy to give recommendations of places to go too when we arrived. We were in room 7, one of the attic rooms. It was a... More

This B&B is located in a great position on the main street in Windermere and it surprisingly very quiet. Well situated for trains and buses which are within a short walk. Good restaurant choices, bars and cafes, in fact everything at your finger tips. The room we had featured a large 4 poster bed and was very comfortable. The bathroom... More

I just wished we'd stayed longer to try everything on the menu. Location-fantastic in the heart of the town, with everything you need within walking distance. Value... More

We were told about some of the must-do things in the area and shown to our room, which was lovely and very comfortable. I wanted to take the bed home with... More

We have visited this lovely B & B about 5 times and have always had a lovely welcome. The rooms are well decorated and furnished to a very high standard. For breakfast there is a varied choice from a full English to fruit, toast and smoked salmon. The full is to die for, cooked by Steven and served by his... More

We have visited before, and were not disappointed this time either. First class service. The family are very welcoming. Short walk into town and very nice restaurants near by. Would definitely visit again.
