We stayed at Virginia Cottage on 30 December. We absolutely loved it. We were met by Graeme, who showed us to our lovely groundfloor room, which was spotless. Our room was perfect. The added touches were a fridge for our champagne and Shirley's fabulous home made biscuits. Also, there were biscuits and sherry in the cosy lounge, again a welcoming... More

Graeme is the perfect host and nothing is too much trouble to make your stay the most comfortable and luxurious experience. With a beautiful location close to the village centre, the rooms are designed and furbished to the highest standards... More

Very comfortable stay at the Virginia Cottage. Great location and very clean. The sherrys in the lounge and the sweet treats in the room were a very nice touch too. The breakfast was delicious and we loved the spa bath too. Would highly recommend to those staying in Bowness.

We just stayed the one night but wish we had stayed longer. There was a really friendly welcome and atmosphere and the room was beautiful, comfortable and warm. Breakfast was perfect to set us up for a day walking!. With being in the middle of Bowness it meant that going out for a meal and a drink was so easy.... More

We stayed at Virginia Cottage for 2 nights from 27th to 29th December a welcome birthday/Christmas break. Lovely cosy traditional B&B right in the heart of Bowness on Windermere, just what we needed ticked all the boxes. Would definitely book again.

Excellent location and a very warm welcome. The room was amazing, with a stunning view and the food was delicious. Made us feel very welcome and even had a treat waiting for our dog, who made himself right at home! The decor of the cottage was very nice and there was everything we needed for our stay. We have already... More
