Lovely 2 night stay in this charming guesthouse. Breakfasts were super. Hosts were very helpful and relaxed and friendly. Everything was clean and neat. The single room was small, but adequate.The place is well cared for.

We stayed in the triple room and it was a good size. The bathroom was very spacious and lots of natural light. Lovely little treats in the room too!! They've got board games and cards downstairs to keep activities going when the town sleeps. Great new management - overall an enjoyable and easy experience with Oakfold!

Marnie was very friendly and welcomed us with fresh tea / coffee. The early check in was a bonus and gave us the afternoon to wander around Bowness.

A very friendly and welcoming reception from the proprietors Max and Marnie. We have stayed at this B&B several times before and have no hesitation in recommending this Guest House situated close to Bowness,which provides clean and comfortable accommodation and good food.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the oakfold house for 1 night, the after arriving slightly early the room wasn't quite ready, however, Max and Marnie were very apologetic and made sure everything was ready very quickly. The bed was very comfortable, en-suite was spot-less and the breakfast was very tasty. Will definitely be staying at Oakfold house again!

Max and Marnie gave us a friendly welcome.We stayed there for 3 nights, the room was clean and fresh. I guess the rooms were cleaned daily. The full english breakfast was very tasty and excellent, never really tried anything else. They have free wi-fi, board games, book etc. Enough to keep he kids busy. The location is also quite good...

We stayed in room 8 which is a family room. The room is not huge but was more than adequate for our needs ( children 8&5 years old). The children... More

We initially choose this Hotel because of the reviews and the excellent information available on the web site. It's location can not be bettered , close enough to all the shops , pubs and restaurants , yet far enough away so we could enjoy some peace and quite. The young couple ( owners ) we're friendly and breakfast was just... More
