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

I stayed at the Blue House's Garden Room for a couple of nights. The room was lovely, the bed one of the best I've ever slept in and the crackling woodburner made me want to stay in all day. Tina was a fantastic host - very generous and even catering to a gluten-free diet. There are 3 extremely affectionate dogs... More

We stayed in the romany style caravan in the garden of the B&B. One of the reasons for choosing this was because of it allowed pets. We brought Boris the Boxer dog who, like us, had a fabulous time! The caravan is cosy and unique with a log burner and plenty of wood, coal, candles and much needed fire lighters... More

We stayed at The Blue House for 2 nights in January which was utterly charming. Tina gave us a fabulous welcome with a home made birthday cake for one of our party which was such a lovely surprise, and delicious! Both rooms are well appointed and have everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. Breakfast was great with... More

Thank you Tina for a great stay. We had two nights at The Blue House B&B in early December and it is exactly as described. A peaceful setting but close to a range of amenities. Great stay, beautiful décor, great hospitality - perfect weekend away, didn't want to leave!

Stayed for one night and thoroughly enjoyed it. Lovely bedroom and bathroom with delicious treat of homemade flapjack supplied with the tea/coffee making facilities. Breakfast was taken next morning in the main house and this too was excellent. Tina was a wonderful host. I would definitely recommend a stay here.
