Stayed here for 3 nights recently with my 2 dogs, lovely warm welcome with home made biscuits for 2 and 4 legged guests. Location is superb for exploring the lakes. My only grumbles are the fact that the front door opens directly onto a busy road which can be risky with dogs and also there was nowhere on site for... More

Amazing stay, good hospitality, lovely breakfast. Located very near the lake and next door to a pub. Our dog made welcome with a home made dog biscuit (stayed in room 10 with spa shower) Will definitely stay there again

lovely cottage, fantastic location for the Lake. Plenty of places within walking distance for food and drink. We parked the car and left it for 2 days. Spa down the road was great to have use of. Owner was lovely and very accomodating. Home made biscuits and sherry were lovely touches. Great breakfast. Will definitely be returning

This is a beautiful building set in a fantastic location. The room was tastefully furnished to a high standard and the breakfast was excellent. We were there for a wedding but would not hesitate to go again just for a weekend break.

Virginia Cottage is full of character and in a very convenient location. The car park is only a 3 minute walk away and the centre of Bowness just a 5 minute walk. We stayed in room 3 which is fine but rather cramped and next time we will choose a larger room. We will definitely stay here again next time... More

Welcoming atmosphere, great service. Breakfast was fresh and tasty, the place was tidy and we felt looked after during our stay. Graeme was helpful when we were stuck with parking or when we needed some advice about restaurants. We will come back!

Our room was lovely. Four poster bed with sumptuous clean bedding. Fridge was in the room so we could keep our drinks cool, there were homemade... More

Virginia Cottage is perfectly located, just tucked away from the lake, less than a minute to the car park then with a minute the other way are the shops, bars and restaurants. My partner and I had a two night stay, we arrived at check in to be greeted by Graham who was lovely and showed us to our room... More
