Jennifer and Stephen are very hospitable and approachable, making me feel very welcome from the moment I stepped into the B&B! They also helped to clear my doubts on getting to various places, which made travelling around in the Lake District much easier. The Rydal room was very comfortable and clean, and the welcome gifts (including homemade cookies) were great;... More

Just returned from 2 nights in the Lake District. We stayed at the wonderful Archway Guest House in Windermere. Jennifer and Stephen were fantastic hosts. Jennifer's home made cakes and biscuits and jams were delicious and Stephen's breakfasts were amazing. We stayed in room "Coniston" and the views from the window were glorious and the bathroom was luxurious. Highly recommended.

Such thoughtful and knowledgeable hosts really add to the enjoyment of a location. Jennifer loaned us a waterproofed map to find our way on the footpaths, recommended a fine place for a meal, and produced home-baked treats for an afternoon or evening snack. Terrific breakfast options (including several with fish), and a library of local reference materials. Good location, comfortable... More

We stayed here for two nights and could not have found better in terms of hosting, food, accommodation and location. The landlady was truly kind and helpful and recommended to us a lovely walk, complete with adequate information, which made our day memorable. We were easily able to park outside on the road for free- a huge plus point as... More

My partner and I had a last minute visit to Windermere this weekend and booked this guesthouse online without any knowledge of the place and we was not disappointed. We were welcomed in by the owners of the guesthouse Jennifer and Steven. Jennifer gave us lots of information about the local area and showed us to our room which was... More
