Stayed recently with my girlfriend. Max and Marnie were very welcoming. Food was excellent and location is ideal for exploring both Bowness and Windermere. Great guesthouse with clean and attractive rooms.

We stayed for 2 nights in December. Room and breakfast were excellent. A charming well appointed B and B with very hospitable owners. In short an excellent establishment. Well done to the owners Max and Marnie who only took over the hotel last year.

All the important things in a good B and B are right - nice room, comfortable bed, good shower, tasty breakfast. In addition, hosts are very friendly and helpful, the location is great - about half way between Bowness and Windermere so easy walk to both towns and the lake. We were surprised how busy the town was (it was... More

Thanks for a wonderful stay, the room was beautiful, location perfect, breakfast delicious! When we arrived, we were brought a cup of tea and our bags were taken up to our room. Considering the price, we thought attention to detail was great. We had a lovely time and will definitely be back.

Everything about Oakfold House was exactly as it should be for a quality B&B. We stayed for a short two night break and found it warm and welcoming with an extremely pleasant room and (at last!) a comfortable bed. This is an excellent location with on site parking. We also discovered the brilliant local cinema nearby which was a delight.... More

Everything is quite good at Oakfold House. Really nice and helpful host, sweet and satisfactory services! I stayed in a very warm and tidy little room! It is 10 minutes walk to the pier, and there is a bus stop very nearby to get to Windermere railway station. Love it!

If you're looking for a cosy b&b with fantastic breakfasts and that's close to the centre of Bowness then look no further! Myself and my partner came to Oakfold House for a two night stay in December. We come to Bowness every year in December for a mini break and this year we decided to stay somewhere different to where... More

We could not fault anything about Oakfold House. The rooms, facilities and location were perfect. The location is central for both Bowness and Windermere. The welcome was warm and inviting and when we arrived we were served with a pot of tea. The breakfast was super. Great value for money. We can't wait to go back - we will highly... More

Had a lovely stay at Oakfold House, couldn't do enough for us and welcomed us with a cup of tea when we arrived. Can't fault the little extras in the room including shower gels, shampoo, shower caps and tea and coffee with a welcome biscuit. Excellent value for money Can't wait to come back. Many Thanks
