This is a lovely guest house in an an ideal spot for touring the Bowness and Windermere area. Wills is a great host and gave us stacks of useful information about the local area and attractions which made our two night stay even more enjoyable. I recommend you sample the full English breakfast, cooked by Wills' wife Pauline, it's absolutely... More

Our room was clean and comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed our delicious breakfasts in the mornings. The guest house is... More

My partner and myself stayed here for our short break. It was our first time in the lakes, the guest house was lovely with bright and comfortable rooms. The staff were friendly and gave us great tips on where to go during our stay. The breakfast was excellent and we really enjoyed our stay.

My husband and I booked in for one night. We were greeted very well and information given about the local area. The room was lovely and the bed comfortable. A brilliant English breakfast, so a good choice.

Good location with off road parking. Owners are friendly and very helpful. I stayed in Room 7, the Kingsized room and was pleased to find it wasn't a zip and link bed with the uncomfortable lump in the middle. The room was clean and bright with a lovely view to the rear of the property. The breakfast was lovely on... More

We had the opportunity to take a couple of days' break and as my wife had never visited the lakes, we searched for places to stay on a budget. Ignoring the fairly excitable negative reviews, we chose Rayrigg Villa due to its location, price and availability. We are now certain we couldn't have done any better. We knew we wouldn't... More

After a somewhat lengthy and tiring journey from London we were greeted at Rarigg Villa by Mr Wills who made us feel at home in his own Scottish ways, and understanding our predicament for we were late for our prayers immediately sent us to our rooms. The rooms allocated to us were pleasantly decorated with even a small teddy bear... More

Double room was pretty small, with very cramped en-suite. Couldn't open windows in room. Off street parking very limited (3 spaces). On the positive side, room was well equipped, clean, breakfast excellent, staff very friendly and it's very conveniently located for town centre shops, pubs and restaurants.
