Stayed here at beginning of July, was so good ended up stating an extra night. Room was a good size with a four poster bed, fridge and power shower, our room no 4 did overlook the road but even with windows open during the night as it was too hot, we both slept well. Parking is a two minute walk... More

Just got back from a 2 day break at the lakes. Stayed at the Viginia Cottage. Perfect location,easy to find. Graeme came out to show us where to park which was just across the road. Straight to our room which was room number 5, with fantastic views down into Bowness and over the hills. The nearest pub is literally next... More

Virginia Cottage is a 150 year old building with many original features mixed with modern furnishings in our room. We chose to stay at the Virginia Cottage as we needed Pet Friendly accommodation. On arrival we were greeted by Shirley who showed us to our room. They have specific Pet Friendly rooms so its important this is agreed before booking/arrival.... More

Myself, my boyfriend and our dog Wand stayed here for two nights and I couldn't fault it! The room was spacious and the staff were superb! Breakfast was delicious and the location was ideal as it was right in the centre of bowness just a two minute walk to Lake windermere! Everything was fantastic and I would highly recommend!

This is a lovely place to stay very welcoming, friendly, good food, lovely people. Virginia cottage is in the heart of Bowness so you have every on you door step. We went for a weekend and would highly recommend it. We had one of the four poster beds at only a small charge more bliss

First of all, the room was spacious with a 4-poster bed, and more than the usual facilities, a sofa, a large, empty fridge, kettle, tea, coffee, etc., wi-fi, flat-screen TV. Breakfast was freshly cooked and plentiful. But it's the extras that make this place hard to beat - home-made biscuits in the room, sherry and biscuits in the small lounge,... More

Fairly comfortable accomodation. Room on the small size but we did book the economy double room. Plus only bathroom window could be opened so not much in the way of fresh air. Lovely host, Graeme. Lovely breakfast. Well priced and a beautiful area of England.

Very nice place in the heart of Bowness. Lovely rooms and excellent breakfast. Only minus is that it is situated by a quite busy road so if your room is facing the street it can be quitr noicy. So I would def come again but ask for a room facing the back.
