My girlfriend and myself stayed two nights in this lovely, relaxing, friendly guest house and were over the moon with its perfect location. The town and lake are just a very short walk away and the pub right next door has a lovely warm feel and serves delicious food. The guest house has free WiFi which was a massive bonus... More

Nicola was in charge the night and morning that we stayed - she was so friendly and lovely! The room was perfect, with en suite and a very comfortable bed. My dog was travelling with us, and they have dog-friendly rooms - yay! He even was given a complementary homemade dog biscuit, what a lovely touch. Talking of complementary biscuits,... More

Good stay, very comfortable and welcoming. Excellent breakfast. Lovely to be so close to Lake Windermere. Good to have access to the pool at the nearby hotel. We were using the buses and boat trips - all very nearby

Enjoyed our stay. Room nice. Great position right in the town, just short stroll from lake. Breakfast slightly disappointing. It was nice, but the full breakfast was small. 1 half tomato, two tiny sausages, ( not sure how a butcher could produce such small sausages ). You can choose what you want for breakfast, I suggest select everything to try... More

My husband and I went with our dog and were bowled over by how great this place was. The rooms were immaculate and well decorated. We had an en suite with a new TV in the room. The owners seemed to go above and beyond to provide nicer than average extras (high quality teas/hot choc etc) and had even included... More

Just back from a week's stay here. Very highly recommended - immaculate, welcoming but not intrusive owners, and excellent accommodation. We booked the suite and it's great value. Pampered with big towels, dressing gowns and the best jacuzzi we've encountered. The parking at an nearby hotel is a real bonus.

A great b&b within a couple of minutes walk to the centre of Bowness and Lake Windermere and close to many restaurants. Brilliant English breakfast, rooms very clean and comfortable. Staff very friendly, had a great break and would definitely recommend. Car parking close.

Beautiful village, pretty little guest house. A little dissapointing, our room was very small with a tiny bathroom. Beautifully decorated but far too small, again breakfast was a little dissapointing very small for a cooked breakfast not the hearty breakfasts we are used to when staying in B&B's. No interaction from the owners which we found bizzare in previous stays... More

With a minute walk into the heart of Bowness, the location of this guest house is perfect. Breakfast was fantastic and we had a lovely stay. Car parking is free in a nearby car park for guests making our arrival and stay stress free.
