I have gone to great effort to take notes and report here our experience. This expose is not to bash or get back at the owners, rather to accurately report what we encountered after an extended stay of eight nights (May 30 – June 7) in Rooms 1 and 3, which are the largest. Upon arriving and opening the door... More

Right near centre - everything within walking distance. No road noise. Parking - reserved with permit was a real bonus Good sized room with tea/coffee making facilities, tv etc. Wi-Fi really good - 2 networks as walls thick! Breakfast average. Very accommodating people e.g. arrive when you like Lovely place, decorated to a high standard

Booked again with my boyfriend in June, this time booked with breakfast. Martin was great during booking and provided all additional details as we were arriving early. The ladies of the house...

Great Guest house we had room 5 which was a little small, but compact, it was very quiet and had en-suite shower no bath. Breakfast was excellent, and the setting was ideal great for the centre of Bowness. , think if I went again would ask for a bath and a larger room, staff were courteous and friendly. I would... More

Spent two nights in this lovely guesthouse at the end of May (Bank Holiday). We were in Room 10 which has its own entrance door on the side of the building which we found very handy. The room was very clean, quite small, had kettle, iron, even ironing board !! The bathroom was large with a large shower cubicle but... More
