We enjoyed a couple of nights here during this lovely summer . Got a lovely warm welcome upon arrival. Despite this place going through some refurbishment we were not disturbed. The standard of the dining room and service provided leave us without a doubt that we will definitely stay here a gain. Close to everything you need yet tucked away... More

Maxine and Graham made our stay in Bowness really enjoyable - they're fantastic hosts, the rooms are spotless the food was the best we have eaten in a guesthouse - beautifully cooked breakfast with local quality ingredients home made jam and marmalade and fresh home made cake in rooms every day. If you want a place to stay on Windermere... More

We have just had a lovely 4 night stay at the Bay House and wanted to say what fantastic hosts Marine and Graham are. The room was spotlessly clean and we had a view of the lake. The breakfasts are excellent (best we have had in any B&B) with homemade jam and marmalade! The delicious homemade cake in our room... More

I stayed with friends at the guest house. Maxine and Graeme could not have been more friendly and welcoming and made our stay very memorable. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were compact but were very comfortable, spotlessly clean and ideal for us. The breakfast was excellent both for continental and cooked foods. The guest house is in the... More

The owners Maxine and Graham were so welcoming and keen for us to enjoy our stay. Our 2 rooms and en suite bathrooms were small but spotlessly clean and the beds and bedding new. They told us they are new owners and are making improvements to the place. The breakfast was excellent with a large choice. My friend who had... More

What a lovely weekend my husband and I have just had! Our stay was made enjoyable by our attentive hosts of Bay House Lake View. The location is ideal, the rooms are clean and comfortable, the food, including the thoughtful little touches, such as homemade cake and jams are just delicious! We can't wait to come back next month :)

Wife and I stayed here for the second time last weekend. Great to see the improvements Maxine and Graham have made since last year. Once again, best breakfast in town, lovely omelettes, lovely lovely marmalade and wonderful cake! Our bed was one of the most comfy we have slept in. Maxine and Graham are very friendly and make you feel... More

Simply cannot praise Maxine and her beautiful guest house enough. My recently widowed mum decided to join me for a weekend away but there wasn't a room in my B&B so I booked here. Mum was treated so well she instantly settled and didn't want to leave! Owners are quite new and doing lots to improve the place. I would... More

We stayed for two nights and wished it could have been more! From the bedroom which had everything you need (lovely cake!) to Graham's breakfast which really was the best I have ever had, the whole stay was a delight. Nothing was too much trouble for Maxine and we can't wait to come back. I'll certainly be recommending the Bay... More

On arrival this bed and breakfast didnt look too appealing but looks can be deceiving. It has a perfect location with lake view. The hosts were helpful, friendly and on hand to make our stay as relaxing as possible. Clean tidy rooms. Fantastic breakfast served with a varied choice of foods. Parking permit supplied for adjacent car park. We have... More
