This was the 4th B&B we've stayed in whilst visiting Windermere. It's a nice venue, clean and the interior is true to the style of the house with heavy use of floral patterns throughout. But it just didn't have that little extra that we've experienced in other B&B's. The proprietors take a very hands off approach, maybe a bit too... More

We agree “Very Nice” is an apt description for Newstead and how it is run. At Newstead we are neither offish, stand-offish nor hand-offish. This guest – a so called “green” campaigner perhaps set the tone for their stay when on 1st arriving at Newstead they went out of their way to be offensive and insulting by sarcastically slighting the...

Beautiful period property, tastefully decorated in elegant style in keeping with property. Hospitable host and hostess Wonderfully presented room. We stayed in a four poster (a little extra for that), but real genuine antique furniture and great condition well looked after etc. Breakfast was probably best presented and quality enjoyed in at least the last 2 years. A great hideaway,... More

We opted for a standard double but there was nothing standard about it. Spotlessly clean, comfortable furnishings, high ceilings, en suite toilet and shower with wash hand basin in the room, ideal if someone is in the shower and you need to use the basin! Breakfast was scrummy. We will return

Our first time in Windermere and could not fault the Guest House we stayed in. The owners were very friendly, chatty and knowledgable about the area. It was probably one of the best guest houses we have stayed in and we stay in a lot. The room was exceptionally clean and well decorated with a 4 poster king size bed.... More

What a lovely place! This is such a great hotel, brilliantly located (between Windermere and Bowness - about 15 mins walk to each), with absolutely beautiful rooms: we were blown away by the exquisite Arts and Crafts-inspired decor. We received a very friendly welcome from the owner and she gave us lots of useful information about the local area. The... More

My boyfriend and I stayed this past week, for a relaxing break. The room was lovely (room 6), with a four poster bed. Maybe a little on the warm side, but the windows are easy to open and there is a fan. I'm sure the rooms at the front of the house would have lovely views of the lake. Bedroom... More
