We stayed for two nights over the weekend. Everything was excellent - very clean and well furnished room, excellent breakfast with good choices, home made biscuits in the room were a lovely extra, and free parking a very short walk away. Location is also good, just a couple of minutes walk from the centre of Bowness. We will definitely stay... More

Excellent breakfasts & very friendly staff. Room No.5... clean & well maintained with excellent view down into Bowness. Room had fridge/chiller... nice touch for enjoying a glass of wine in the evening as Virginia Cottage doesn't have a bar. Great and hassle free car parking within the Belsfield Hotel grounds. Top location within Bowness with pubs & restaurants seconds walk... More

Very friendly staff, clean and tidy rooms. We all liked the sherry and biscuits. Nice touch ! Would recommend to anyone. Why does the review need to be 200 characters not too sure about this ????????????

Although my wife and I only stayed for one night, we have to say it was a wonderful experience. We were in the "Suite" at the top of the building. On entry into the room, Graeme had arranged Chocolates and had Champagne on ice for my wife, who thought it was wonderful. The room was tastefully decorated and had a... More

We had a very pleasant stay at Virginia Cottage on the occasion of my godson's wedding. The accommodation was first class and ideally situated for The Belsfield Hotel where my godson was getting married.

My family had the benefit of staying at this cosy cottage for 3 nights in June. It's located just a stone's throw from the lake at Bowness, and there were many restaurants, shops, convenience stores etc. within 5 mins walking distance. The cottage was managed by Graeme and Shirley - Graeme was helpful and always mindful of our needs; unfortunately... More

Virginia Cottage is an interesting mix of individual cottages brought together to form the current property, yet each part still retains its own character. Lots of charm in a superb location, easy to get to by public transport, next door to a pleasant pub (Royal Oak) for food, drink & a pool table.

Our deluxe room was very comfortable with a fantastic 4 poster bed, flat screen TV, and fridge. Cooked breakfast was good, clearly made from local produce. Graeme was welcoming and helpful. Nice touches are Shirley's home made biscuits in room, complimentary sherry and more biscuits in the lounge in the evening, and Shirley's home made jam at breakfast. You also... More
