A most wonderful location.Excellent customer service and very friendly.Rooms were immaculately presented and as a customer you wanted for nothing. Christine and Ian are by far the perfect hosts and on behalf of the family thank you very much look forward to seeing you again in the very near future.

Spent three nights in this lovely B&B Spotlessly clean and great food. We had room 5 and the views of the lake were wonderful.It's about a twenty minute walk into the centre of Bowness, there are parts of walk without pavements which might be a little worrying for some but we felt quite safe. The owners are very helpful with... More

This hidden little gem of a B&B in Bowness is superb. Nice rooms and the owners were so nice, even left me a card and some chocolates on my birthday, even though I did not tell them. Fantastic breakfast and rooms were extremley nice and clean.

Probably one of the best guest houses we have stayed at. From the moment we walked in Christine and Ian were welcoming and friendly. The room was brilliant and you could not ask for more. Acceptionally clean, bathroom was imaculate comfortable bed and sofa and enough tea and coffee to keep you going. The breakfasts offered a wide selection for... More
