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.

An excellent b & b. Great situation close to centre of Bowness-on-Windermere and only 5 minute walk to Lake Windermere . Couldn't fault room and breakfast was excellent. Will definitely stay here again if I am in Bowness-on-Windermere. Pub next door ideally situated for a final drink of the night.

Booked into Virginia Cottage for 3 night Easter break. After an awful 5 hour journey to get to Bowness I was welcomed by a very friendly Graham who quickly pointed out the facilities and showed me to my room. The room was a double en suite, was warm, well decorated comfortable and had good provisions. The room was next to... More

Lovely little B&B. Just an overnight stay booked a deluxe double room with spa bath. Spa bath was the highlight! Room lovely with 4 poster bed. Room was quite cold on arrival, no heating on, would have been more welcoming if it had been a little warmer.
