Yes, we had another lovely stay in another lovely B&B during our holiday in the UK, thanks to Ian and Christine. Everything in the other reviews is true. I received some lovely chocs because it was my birthday - that was really thoughtful and a wonderful surprise. In addition, the restaurant recommendations were good and we enjoyed our meals at...

We stayed here for two nights in August. Lovely guest house stayed in room 2. Everywhere spotless and clean, bed very comfy, breakfast very good all your needs catered for. The guest house is situated just outside bowness away from the main busy centre, the walk in is only 10mins very pleasant overall a very enjoyable stay

We booked a double room and were allocated room 5 which enjoys a lake view. The room was bigger than we expected, having a sofa in it to sit and relax. The room was spotlessly clean and the linen felt really luxurious. The breakfast was good quality ingredients cooked well. It was a substantial breakfast to keep you going throughout... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and were allocated room 5 at the top of the house. It was wonderful with a fabulous view over Lake Windermere in the distance. The room was spacious, light and airy, with a comfy bed, and a sofa, which you rarely get in a guest house. Everything was spotlessly clean. My only complaint, and... More
