We stayed here for 2 nights recently as a base to visit Cartmel. It is easy to find from the main road. And whilst the location is a few miles outside of Cartmel, Tina was very kind to offer us lifts and a taxi home was only around £12. The B&B is lovely and quaint. We had the forget me... More

Overnight visit, selected for convenience from motorway & proximity to Bowness. Tricky to find; need to take road before you get to the blue house coming from the motorway but worth the effort. Stayed in The Garden Room, more like a mini-apartment with lovley double bedroom, complete with sofa & TV area, dvds supplied too. Lovely big bathroom, so homely... More

Lovely cosy room which we enjoyed staying in. The owner couldn't have been more helpful with us having to change the booking on 2 occasions due to unforeseen circumstances, originally booked it for February, but didn't end up staying until June, for which the owner didn't charge us. Breakfast was fab and we couldn't have felt more welcome

We booked the gypsy caravan as a start to our mini moon, we thought it would be the perfect romantic start, and we were not dissapointed. The caravan is so sweet and cosy, with just candles and a wood burning fire it is perfect get away from it all - no technology! The bed, which is raised off the floor... More

We stayed just one night. Tina was very welcoming. The room was sweet. Immaculately clean. Really liked the homely feel. Flapjacks were a nice touch and I liked the little pots of tea & coffee rather than the usual sachets. Warm room. Wifi worked well, always a bonus for my husband! Our dog was welcome too. Lovely breakfast the homemade... More

The Blue House is a lovely B&B set in a lovely location, 10 minutes from Lake Windermere, with nice walks up to the reservoirs. The main road was closer than I thought but actually we didn't hear the traffic at all during the night and it was very peaceful. Tina, the owner, looked after us very well and her two... More

We spent three nights at the Blue House and will definitely return when back in this part of the Lakes. We stayed in the Garden Room which had its own entrance and worked particularly well on the day when we had a very early start. The room was warm and cosy and had everything we needed with both bath and... More

Booked here last minute as we were doing a walk up in the lakes that day. We wanted to stay somewhere a bit different and found this B&B, we asked for any available room or the Gypsy Caravan; which we got and it was AMAZING. Very unique stay, cosy warm with everything you need. Facilities - Tea, coffee, shower, toilet,... More

We stayed in the romany caravan for 2 nights because we like quirky accommodation and wanted to explore the lake district. Tina already had the log burner going for our arrival so it was very cosy and romantic. The caravan is tight on space for manoeuvring around umpacking but it's got a surprising amount of storage. The bed was very... More
