We had a wonderful time in the Blue House BnB. We stayed for one night and had a brilliant breakfast in the morning!! With plenty of choice and homemade pancakes made our stay even more enjoyable. Situated in a beautiful location, close enough to get to anywhere around Windermere and surrounding villages, but hidden away from the madness of Bowness... More

It was very different to what I would usually book and I did not sleep well at all but it is defiantly a one I will remember and am pleased I did.

We have just had a wonderful break in the Lakes. Our first night was spent at The Blue House, we were not disappointed. The location is beautiful & Tina a great host, all the little touches make a big difference. Tina's flap jacks were as good as we had hoped, our room was so cozy, we did not venture out... More

We just got back from a one night stay at The Blue House in the Garden Room. Lovely location, amazing flap jacks and just the most wonderful cozy room - plus dogs and chickens - we were in our element. Loved the personal touches and great host, Tina. It's a lifestyle to die for and we wished it was ours... More

We have just returned from a fantastic stay in the Romany Caravan at the Blue House. It is so cute and quirky and we had everything we needed provided to us : full use of bathroom (with hairdryer) just a few steps across the yard, tea and coffee making facilities and even WIFI. It was a charming and rustic accommodation... More

This place is truly a little gem. Tina makes it what it is: a warm, welcoming and friendly retreat. The bed in the blue room is super comfy and the homemade flapjacks were a delicious addition! In the evening, Tina drove us to l'enclume in Cartmel, a few miles away, where we had dinner - such a kind and unexpected... More
