We stayed at Oakfold House for 3 nights over the August bank holiday weekend and were extremely happy with our stay. We had a warm and pleasant welcome, an atmosphere that continued throughout our stay – in particular the young waitress at breakfast was always extremely friendly. We were staying in room 5, a small and cosy double, which was... More

We have just returned from a long weekend at Oakfold House, we stayed in Room 7, the room was smaller than we expected and on the surface seemed well kept. The bathroom was a decent size with nice decor, but unfortunately the shower cubicle was less than clean with black and pink mould growing on the tiles, sealant. and under... More

My partner and I stayed in Oakfold House for 5 nights in August of 2012. It's a very nice period house maintained beautifully by the owners, Michael and Michael who take great care in ensuring your stay is as comfortable as possible. Our room was spotless clean as is the entire place which for me is always important! We did... More

Oakfold is conveniently sitauted between Bowness and Windermere, both within walking distance. The hotel is situated in a residential street however it was so very quiet and restful. We stayed in room 2 which was nice. I agree with the previous reviewer that the shower was rather weak. The room was clean, only one or two minor things if you... More

Stayed for two nights a group of five of us over three rooms, 2, 3 and 5. The rooms were fine, nothing special, decor was a bit busy but fine. It was superficially clean, but looking closer, there were quite a few cobwebs and dusty areas. The shower in room 2 was very weak, but there was enough hot water.... More

Very comfortable bed, mega shower, lovely breakfast, and Michael, Michael, Michael & Michael are very nice blokes indeed !!! One thing i really HATE about B & B's is putting up with OPN(other People's noise). Well, none of that here. Quiet? It's like a bloody mortuary... More

I travelled to Lake District on 20th July 2012 and stayed in Oakfold House for 2 nights. First, good location. House is off the main street --Lake Road, with a quiet neighbourhood. Bowness Pier is about 10 minutes walk and there are lots of small but interesting shops on the way to look at. Tesco and Co op are also... More
