My daughter booked a 3 night stay for my wife and i to celebrate our 30 years of marraige and to be honest she could not have selected a better B&B. The room was excellent (room 1) and the breakfast was just what we need to see us throught to dinner time. Mark and Emma are fantastic host's and were... More

I would recommend this guest house to anybody! We had a wonderful stay here and would definitely return! The building overlooks Lake Windermere giving you gorgeous views every time you look out of your windows. These views alone make this guest house worth staying at! The room itself was perfect for what we needed. Wardrobe, drawers, bedside cabinets, TV and... More

This is a real gem, Mark and Emma have a fantastic place with bags of character, from check in to check out they could not have been more helpful, wonderful breakfast with local produce and great views, the room was just perfect, really comfy bed and the parking right outside ideal. It was a real shame to leave and we... More

Hawkrigg Guest House what a wonderful place to stay! We were in the middle of a 10 week trip from Australia and Hawkrigg Guesthouse in Far Sawrey was a great stopover. Spotless room with a beautiful view of Lake Windermere, a truly delicious breakfast with delightful owners Emma and Mark making us feel "at home". Access to a fridge and... More

After taking a wrong turn and driving down a long narrow windy lane we finally found Hawrigg and the exterior is very beautiful. We arrived after 5ish and it was dark. The key to our room was left on the side with a note which we did not mind at all. Our room was smaller than what we thought it... More

Wrong side of the lake??? I wasn't aware that there is a right and a wrong side! Perhaps in your opinion, but how is that a review of our guest house?? More

Arrived late than expected, about 22.00. Emma had left the key for our room with a note in the entrance hall which we appreciated. The room was big, clean, nicely decorated with a big comfy bed, tea and coffee making facilities and a tv. Emma also left the code for the free wifi with the keys which was useful. The... More

Really recommend this bed and breakfast ,so peaceful and quite and lovely views of lake Windermere. Good base if you are a keen walker and a couple of pubs down the road for evening meals. Beds very comfortable and rooms brilliant. We only stayed two nights but loved it.

No one was in when we arrived but a room key and a note was left out. We went out for supper and half expected to see Emma or Mark the owners on our return, but we didn't. It felt strange staying in someone's house when we hadn't met them. The next morning Emma's father was on breakfast serving duty,... More

What do you want and expect from a B&B? A comfortable room that is quiet, with a comfortable bed and a fully functioning bathroom? A great breakfast? Friendly, helpful owners? Combine these with a lovely, very quiet location with a great view over Lake Windermere, and you have just described Hawkrigg Guest House. We wanted a couple of days away... More
