It is situated in a good position on the main road, a short walk from the lake, cinema, restaurants and had parking available. The breakfast was lovely and the staff were too We thoroughly... More

We had two fantastic nights at the Old Courthouse, the room was lovely and clean and the bed very comfortable, the breakfast was excellent . Sue was great and gave loads of information on places to eat and drink. Would definitely stay again.

Stayed for a few nights for a weekend break. A very nice building - quiet in morning and evenings and comfortable. Good breakfast every morning and helpful staff ready to answer all sorts of questions before and during stay. Bit of an issue with the electrics while we were there but the owner did her best to get it sorted... More

Very old fashioned decor but this wasn't a bad thing just different. Rooms were small, but clean with everything you needed. Sue greeted us on check in ... a great asset..she was lovely she... More

Spent 2 nights here this weekend. Nothing was too much trouble for Sue the lady who runs it, she helped us in with our bags and even presented me with a birthday card at breakfast after finding out our reason for being away for the weekend. Rooms are lovely, spotlessly clean and the breakfast room is cute and cosy. Breakfast... More

On arriving at The Old Court House we were greeted by the lady who runs it, and she showed us to our room. The room was very clean and cosy with tea/coffee facilities, shower en suite and t.v./radio.

My husband and I stayed one night in this B&B. It is really clean and the breakfast has variety of fruits/cereals/yogurts and traditional English breakfast. The location is great just in the town centre (Bowness-on-Windermere), lots of good restaurants and bars to have a fun night. If you want to walk to the town centre of Windermere is about 20-30min.... More

Great stay at the old court house. Made to feel extremely welcome. On site parking was useful and if this was full there was a permit for the road. Room really big, took a while to heat up but once heated kept nicely warm. Used spare eiderdown which was handy. Good breakfast with nice touch of fresh fruit salad.
