The guesthouse is situated a very short walk from the main town which is perfect when coming home from an evening out. It also makes a great starting point for many walks. The owners were lovely, very welcoming & provided help/suggestions when we were planning our days out. Everything you could wish for was provided, a lovely comfortable bed for... More

Superb b+b. Very close to the centre of windermere and just across the road from a pub so the fact that the cottage doesnt have a bar doesnt make it loose any of its appeal. Really comfy beds with loads of pillows :) just how i like it. Bathroom was very clean with ample toiletries. Tea,coffee facilities in the room... More

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

What a lovely hotel :-) Our ground floor room (No 8) was lovely with an extremely comfy bed and pillows (am very fussy) which was very welcome after walking all day. Breakfast- amazing! 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 stayed here over Easter. Wendy gave us a friendly welcome despite the fact that we only just arrived right at the end of their designated check in time. 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
