My boyfriend and I stayed here for his birthday, and I got a great deal on booking.com. Slight problem finance wise in that booking.com said that half of the cost would be paid on booking and it wasn't but the B&B itself was fabulous. Wendy (the owner) was very friendly and they served the best B&B breakfast I've ever seen!... More

Booked B&B directly and got a very good deal. Room although a little small was very clean, comfortable and had a fridge which came in very handy. Breakfast was out of this world, with a vast selection to choose from and freshly made to order. Easy to find, with parking at the front. Lovely walk down to the Lake. Would... More

Four of us shared two rooms and were very happy with The Cottage. Each room was different and well decorated. Friendly atmosphere and good location. Easy access to everything. We would highly recommend.

On arrival Wendy greeted us and recommended some short walks we could go on after checking in before going out for dinner. We stayed in Room 3 which had a large four poster... More

I managed to find this guesthouse as it had a single bed. It is only a 5 min walk (if that) from the station. The room was nicely decorated and very comfortable. The breakfasts were first class too and set you up for the day. Steve and Wendy were very welcoming and helpful and would definitely recommend it to anyone.... More

The b&b property is very close to the windermere lake (1.2 miles), well located with lot of restaurants close by and a very good and short walk(20mins) to point where you can see the entire Windermere lake. The owner was really helpful and guided us to nearest bus facilities with maps etc. The rooms are very tastefully decorated and each... More

We had a warm greeting from Stephen who provided us with local knowledge and suggestions for places to eat. The room and en-suite was excellent, clean and tidy. It had a silent fridge, TV and...
