Just spent a couple of days in the Lake District which included an overnight stay at the Archway Guesthouse in Windermere. My wife and I were made to feel most welcome by the owners, our room was excellent and then there was the food ! Home baking of the highest calibre was on offer and what a choice for breakfast...

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

Jennier is really a nice host! She even prepared homemade lemon cake to us when we ready to leave. And the breakfast there is really amazing!!Delicious and big size. We enjoy that very much. The room we lived was really with great view,and comfortable to stay in. You really should get here once!

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

The Archway is the perfect place to enjoy a break in the lakes. We were made to feel very welcome and there were lots of lovely personal touches including home made biscuits in our room and cake in the lounge which you could help yourself to. We were given lots of tips and information about the local area; good places... More

We stayed at the Archway Guesthouse for two nights. Our room (Rydal) was - albeit a little small - very cozy and tidy. Plus, Jennifer had put some biscuits in there that were very delicious. It was little things like these (including the self-made musli for breakfast and her giving us maps with walks etc.) that made us feel like... More

stayed here with my wife for a couple of days after the new year and I must say that it was a lovely little guesthouse, very warm and cosy inside. Jennifer & Stephen are lovely people who make you feel very welcome and give you all the help you need on your stay. The guesthouse is spotlessly clean, bed was... More
