Went for the weekend, the weather wasn't the best but we made the most of it with a lot of things to do in the lakes and the hotel helped with their recommendations and leaflets of where to go, would definitely go again

We stayed with Virginia Cottage on our first trip to the lakes, so the central location was ideal for us being unfamiliar with the area, though we would certainly return. Graeme and Shirley were extremely welcoming to us and our pet dog Madison who equally loved her stay! Location enabled us to roam round Bowness in the evenings on foot,... More

Excellent location in the heart of everything, top marks for breakfast, really comfy bed with good facilities in the room and decent free wifi as well. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to the lakes.

Booked a room for me and my girlfriend for New Years. The cottage was great with home made treats waiting in our room, lovely modern bathroom and a brilliant location to get into the town and walk round the lake. The couple that ran the cottage were brilliant and made us feel very welcome. I would definitely recommend this cottage

We had an excellent stay. Everything was good. The breakfast was excellent. Nothing was any trouble. The only thing was the traffic noise. We would definitely recommend the Virginia Cottage but if we went again we would request a room at the back.

Great location for Bowness bars and restaurants. 5 minute walk to the lake. Graeme is a great host, seeing to your every need. From mince pies and sherry in the lounge to free spa membership at the macdonald hotel. We made full use of this, you won't be disappointed. Our room at the very top of the house was small... More
