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.

This was our first visit to Oakfold House and will not be our last. Spotless accommodation, friendly owners who are available when required, ideal location for both Bowness & Windermere. Our No1 choice to stay in the Lakes

Just returned from a trip to the oakfold house b and b. This is a lovely guest house and I would highly recommend it. The rooms were well decorated and spotlessly clean (we had rooms 3 and 5). The hosts Max and Marnie were super friendly but not in an intrusive way. The b and b is not far from... More

Excellent bed and breakfast. Light and spacious room. Max and Marnie are excellent hosts eager to help but not intrusive. Good choice at breakfast. Situated about 10 mins walk from centre of Bowness so is within easy reach of all amenities but also quiet.

Lovely welcome when we arrived with a pot of tea. Very much appreciated after a six hour drive. Great room on the ground floor with large twin beds, plenty of space to put all your kit, kettle, wine glasses and bottle opener, tea, coffee, biccies etc. Bathroom was great, shower only but a really good shower, very clean and tidy,...

The bedroom & bathroom were clean. Gripes: There was tea & coffee facilities but no plug close by to use the kettle! TV with only 2 channels. Had to decide what to order for b'fast the evening before.

Hi, Thank you for your review - we are pleased that you liked our B&B. We placed the kettle out of the way so that it does not take up any room on the desk next to the bed. With regards to the TV channels, we wish this was brought to our attention. The full range of freeview channels should... More

There was a few problems but Marnie and Max sorted them out efficiently. I would most definitely go back to this guest house, perfect location for the harbour and amenities. Owners aim to please.......

So glad my partner chose here as a place to stay whilst undertaking the Windermere triathlon. The couple who run this guest house are friendly and accommodating. Even prepared a packed breakfast for us for the morning of the event since we were out by 6:00 a.m. and unable to partake of the breakfast in the guest house. Room was... More

Nice and clean. Friendly owners. Well maintained. Very good location as a base for trips around the lake land. Good facilities. Avoid the upper room when it is too hot. Breakfast is satisfactory, not over the top.
