An absolutely wonderful B and B in a beautiful location. Our room was clean, comfortable and had an excellent view of the garden. The breakfasts were delicious. A particular highlight was the freshly baked bread. We also appreciated the tasty homemade flapjacks that were left in our room each day. The owner, Tina, was very welcoming and friendly and we...

Almost don't want to write a nice review as we don't want to share this delightful place. A really warm welcome from 3 very waggy dogs, and Tina herself was charming. The blue house is two minutes away from the A590 but you could have been miles from it. The room was clean and very comfortable with extra touches to... More

Me and my wife recently stayed over and arrived very early. The owner was very accomodating and even gave us a lift into Carmel. We were made to feel welcome from the moment she met us. Breakfast was nice with a good variety. Top marks

My 10 year old son and have recently stayed at the blue house. Brilliant find! Really great value for money. Tina does a fantastic breakfast with lots of choice - all home cooked. Lovely and comfortable room and facilities - we felt very at ease and relaxed. Thank you,!

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
