We could not have been happier with our stay at Oakfold. Our room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was freshly cooked and served in a cosy breakfast room and delicious. We were able to park the car. Location to Bowness and the lake was excellent. Hosts where very friendly and informative. A really lovely B & B.

Old house that has been nicely modernised minutes from the town centre (walking} Clean and well decorated, nice rooms and attentive staff- reasonably priced with an excellent breakfast choice -although once you try the full breakfast it is hard to pick something else

Free parking. Walking distance to Bowness pier and tourist centre. 5 mins drive into Windermere. Lots of places to eat and 2 grocery stores. Marnie and Max are very welcoming and helpful. Suggested itinerary if arriving in afternoon: explore Bowness and climb Orrest Head viewpoint for sunset. Next morning, rent bicycles in Bowness (or walk), purchase Freedom of the Lake... More

As I say, great value for money - we were in a basic double room which was extremely clean and comfortable. Bathroom was very nicely decorated, more up to date than the rest of the room. Breakfast was my only concern with this - due to lack of extra help, there seems to be a delay for breakfasts and I... More

This is a lovely guest house with great original features inside the property. We arrived just after 12 noon and our rooms were ready and of a really good standard. The hallway is light and open with wooden floors throughout the ground floor which does make you a little conscious of walking around and making a noise for other guests.... More

Very clean, comfy bed. Childs bed in a small alcove area was a bit claustrophobic though!! Food excellent, bathroom very smart and clean. Parking not a problem as small car park to rear of property :-)

Located just 10 minutes walk up the hill it is easy to walk down to the town and has the benefit of both on-street parking and a small car park at the back. The room I stayed in was comfortable and well maintained and the owners provided a good breakfast. Certainly recommended.

We really enjoyed our four nights at Oakfield House. We felt relaxed and welcome. The room was lovely, the bed comfortable and the breakfasts varied and obviously well thought out. This is a very well appointed guesthouse with friendly and thoughtful proprietors. We would book again.
