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

Excellent hospitality and service in a beautiful B & B in Windermere. The weather was fab and the comfort and attention to detail and needs of guests was second to none best breakfast ever, I will definitely be going back here at earliest opportunity.

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.

We stayed here for 2 nights recently. It is central in Windermere, with a 15-20 minute walk to the lake and maybe a 30 walk to Bowness. Spotlessly clean. Great breakfast choice and lovely room. We had room 8 which had its own entrance to the building. Parking to the front. Ideal base to tour the Lake District. Would stay... More
