Fantastic location close to all attractions both day and night. Room was very clean, linen was fresh and changed daily. The breakfast was lovely too. A big thanks to Steve who was the perfect host. Would definitely come back.

Very lovely b&b, we upgraded to a bigger room as we needed space for our daughter. Our room had just been re decorated and was very clean and... More

Stayed last weekend with friends here and really found a little gem. The rooms are warm and clean. Our bathroom was small but everything worked . The brekkies are fab and they catered for everything we asked for. This is a definate place to stay and look forward to going back.

We booked a cottage double room with breakfast mid week for less than £60, unheard of in the centre of Bowness with parking. We were lucky and found it discounted at the right time hence the Excellent review. We had a lovely old cottage double room which is advertised as small but we just found it cosy. Owners couldn't do... More

If you are looking for accommodation in the centre of Bowness then look no further! Perfect location for all local pubs, shops and attractions with plenty of free parking just a stones throw away. The rooms were adequate if a little dated, breakfast was very good, we will be back to this quaint little hostelry! 😊

this B&B has been under new ownership for a few months now; and appear to be hitting the ground running and are keen to move this business forward. I know that they are planning to start updating some of the rooms; some of the room decor is on the dark side and slightly dated but overall still more than functional.... More
