This was our first time in the lakes and this has proven to be an ideal location a short walk from both Windermere centre and Bowness. Rooms of satisfactory size and cleaned impeccably daily. Main road outside of bedroom window has an average traffic flow and we were comfortably able to sleep with the window open. Breakfasts are brilliant and... More

The Newstead Guest House has been decorated up to a high standard but this has meant there is lots of Do Not signs which I had thought had gone out many years ago from Guest Houses. Is well placed to either walk up the Hill to Windermere Town centre ( About 5mins) or Down hill to Bowness (About 15 mins).... More

Well. I love this place. My second visit to this guest house, my first being in 2009. I would live here if I could. Really friendly people who own the guest house, ( well I think they do) perfect to location just a 20 minute walk to the lake. Absolutely unreal. Me and my girlfriend loved this place the first...

The welcome and the information we were given at check in was informative and very useful. The house is a fine example of victorian architecture with the internal decor appropriate to the era with wonderful photos depicting the history of the lakes.. The room and the house were immaculately kept. Each day the room was left crisp and clean. Even... More

Stayed a couple of nights in this lovely B&B in a good location for both Windermere and Bowness with 10 min walk to the lake. The guest house is beautifully decorated. We had a ground floor room with 4 poster bed and ensuite shower room, tea/coffee making facilities, wi fi, TV, hair dryer. The hosts were really friendly and welcoming.... More

Chose this one because of the reviews in Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. Ross and Jane have got things just right. Friendly hosts and you can come and go as you please and the place is spotlessly clean. We went for the four poster and what a size! I haven't had such a good nights sleep in ages. I... More

Had a lovely 2 night stay here last Feb. Hotel is ideally located 5 mins walk to Windermere & 15 mins to the busier Bowness. Owner June was very helpful with good knowledge of local amenities & activities. We chose the four poster double room at £150 which represented pretty good value for a lakes hotel, roomy enough with a... More

My husband and I stayed for 1 night and we were not disappointed. A lovely warm and informative welcome from the owner. Spotlessly clean and tastefully refurbished but still keeping the olde worlde feel. Breakfast home cooked and red hot which we appreciated. Great location for restaurants and bars.
