Stayed here for 3 nights. The hospitality was fantastic, and the room was immaculate, comfortable and spacious. Right from the get-go we were made to feel at home and all our questions about the local area were answered. Our hosts were always happy to help and the breakfast was delicious. Would happily return.

Our short stay at The Firgarth was a pleasurable experience, the welcome we got from Colin and Pam was wonderful, we were made to feel very comfortable. The room was fantastic and the breakfast was exceptional. Colin and Pam were very helpful, with good guidance on places to visit and where to eat. I would recommend a trip there to... More

Such a lovely Bed and Breakfast. Pam and Colin couldn't be more helpful. The place is completely spotless. Pam's local knowledge and helpfulness couldn't be bettered and Colin's breakfast is beautifully cooked. I must also mention that Colin's stick lengthening skills are second to none!! Thanks Pam and Colin for a really lovely stay. Kay and Sylv x

Great stay in the Firgarth B&B. Very friendly and helpfull staff. Free parking space next to the building. It's not in the Windermere centre so it's not so crowded. The staff gave us good recommendations for restaurants and things to do in the area. They even lent us small book with good hikes. Although wifi wasn't very fast, they gave... More

Thought I would revisit this b & b after my great experience before! Last time I stated it should be four star and now they are awarded what they deserve! The rooms are still as fresh and clean as last visited not tired in anyway, the breakfast was even better than I remembered and nothing was too much trouble for... More

The Firgarth was the first b&b I have stayed and it has certainly set the bar high! Upon arrival we were greeted by host Pam who was so friendly and had so much information about the local area! This was fantastic as the places recommended to us were perfect, even with the bad weather! We were also offered tea or... More

My partner and I stayed here towards the end of our 4 week trip in Europe and were a bit weary by this stage, my partner also had a pretty bad cold. The host who greeted us was informative and courteous but I wouldn't go as far as friendly. We did arrive late in the day so perhaps he was... More

I will run through your comments as they have appeared in your review. As you stated you were weary when you arrived and also late, the fact that your partner had a bad cold may also had something to do with the fact that you didn't feel I was friendly, clearly my fault! Yes you were late when you eventually... More

Friendly hosts,excellent food, cleanliness superb. Stayed here three nights and must say apart from seeing other guests at breakfast you would not know anyone else was there. We were in room 3 and did not hear hardly a sound. The double glazing copes well with any road noise and the room itself was spotless. The en-suite shone and the shower... More

Just returned from staying at the Firgarth, can only re-iterate what other reviews have said. Spotlessly clean, great, friendly hosts, cracking breakfast. Lovely comfy king sized bed. Wouldn't hesitate to return.
