Could not fault our stay here from start to finish. The pictures do not do the place justice. The condition of our room was spotless and the service from Graeme and Shirley was perfect. Hats off to the chef as well for a top notch breakfast fry up. If you are looking for a cheap place with the 5 star... More

Our second visit to the wonderful Virgina Cottage, Bowness. Fantastic room and dog friendly, clean and excellent facilities. Wonderful Cumbrian breakfast with excellent range of food and drink. Brilliant location right in middle of village, nice friendly helpful staff.

Right in the center of Bowness. Nice cosy 4 poster rooms. A good breakfast sets you up for a days walking. We have been several times and will be going back again. You cannot beat the location and friendly hosts (Graeme)

We stayed for 2 nights in room 11. Ideally located just 2 mins walk from a number of shops, restaurants and bars. Nicely appointed B&B, we were in room 11 - which was nicely appointed, a little smaller than we expected and with some noise from the road. The home-made biscuits in the room were a nice touch. Small TV... More

Had a lovely time, room was lovely and clean / well presented. Owners were very welcoming and helpful, and make a great breakfast. The hotel is right in the middle everything but not in a in your face way, local restaurants were lovely and the views are out of this world.

Wish I could be adopted by Graeme and Shirley and move in! Loved it! Free parking directly opposite. Warm friendly welcome and beautiful room. Handmade biscuits in the room were a lovely touch and super tasty! Could not want for anything, the owners had thought of everything and attended every need while leaving you alone to enjoy your stay. Breakfast... More

Lovely people and great location. Home baking in the rooms was a lovely touch. Room nice, very clean. Not used to traffic noise so found street facing room a bit noisy. Will definitely return (to a back room)
