“brilliant b&b”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

The Lingmoor is a very clean and tidy b&b. The breakfast was great.We wouldn't stop anywhere else in the lake district. Close to pubs, restaurants and all the sights.
Hosts were great and very knowledgeable.

Delicious breakfast, excellent preparation, good room service except the room is a bit small. Two girls in a very small room en suite, once fits in two luggages no more space is left. Besides, space in toilet is less than expected, so you may have to request if you need a bigger room.

House owners are nice and friendly, and recommended us a lot of things to do and eat. Great hospitality!

Room Tip: Their bathroom and toilet is relatively small, just fits one person in normal size. You may need to...

Wow what a heading to your review. More than expected. That is fantastic. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay from our delicious locally sourced breakfast to our friendly service. The room you stayed in is our smallest room, it was the only room which wasn't en-suite when we brought the B&B so we made it en-suite which did reduce the size of the room. However it is a bright room with big window. We glad despite being in our smallest room you still enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back

if you decide to stay at Lingmoor, you won't be sorry. The rooms are newly furnished and very cosy, breakfast more than generous and the location of the guest house is good - about 20 minute walk to the lake and and you can reach numerous pubs ands restaurants within a couple of minutes. The hostess Paula is a very nice person, very helpful and doing her best to satisfy any needs of her guests. The only slight drawback is the lack of parking places outside the house but Paula advised us on where to park. With a lot of accommodation experience we can say that Lingmoor is definetely above the average.

My sister and I visited the Lingmoor for a 3 night break earlier this month. We were sent directions and a map to help us locate the property. Our room was on the 2nd floor at the back of the property and it was lovely, spacious and quiet. The bathroom was very big and had a large window which made the room bright and airy. The breakfasts were very filling and we were always asked of we wanted more toast or a top up of tea in the unusual tea pots, brightly decorated - we never had the same colour twice!! Paula and Graham were very friendly and offered lots of places for us to visit and things to do in and around Windermere. The guest house is very near to the tourist information centre and train station and only a 3-5 minute walk into Windermere itself. All in all we had a lovely break and will certainly be returning in the future.

Room Tip: Room 6 is a good sized twin at the back of the guesthouse. Very bright and airy and quiet.

We are really pleased you and your sister had a great 3 night break with us in 2013. Glad you found us conveniently situated close to Tourist information and the train station. Room 6 is a lovely room as you say and we are pleased you found it bright and airy and quiet. We hope to welcome you both back in 2014.

I was so lucky to get a room in this B&B after stumbling into Windermere without a booking. Among it's many great features:
* Paula and Graham the hosts are incredibly nice-- made all the guests feel welcome
* Nice cosy modern rooms-- feels like a full service hotel but more personable.
* Close to the train station
* Great breakfast with a good option for vegetarians
* A good deal-- well worth what I paid

Fantastic, that says it all. Thank you so much for writing such a lovely review. We remember you walked in from the street after arriving in Windermere one afternoon so we are glad our frontage is appealing and then once inside the guest house you found this equally good. Great to hear we offer hotel service with a personal touch and that you found us conveniently located to the train station and that are breakfast choice is good and yes as well as our full English which is great for all our meat eaters we offer good choices for vegetarians too.
Lastly its great to know you found we offer value for money. Something very important we feel.
We are glad you enjoyed all aspects of your stay and hope to welcome you back in the future.
Kind Regards

We stayed at Lingmoor for one night in July, wish we could have stayed longer. From the moment we arrived we were treated as friends rather than guests, and the owners Paula and Graham were really friendly. The room and bed was so comfy, best nights sleep in ages, and the breakfast was yummy, filled us up for hours. We have no problem in recommending Lingmoor to anyone looking for a friendly, family run guest house in the heart of Windermere. Thank you Paula and Graham for a wonderful stay. We will be back x

Thank you so much for your lovely review, especially as you only stayed for 1 night. Glad we were able to make such a good impression in such a short space of time. Great to hear you found our breakfast yummy and you had a good nights sleep-the best in ages in fact which is so good to hear. We thank you for recommending us and look forward to welcoming you back soon. Hopefully next time for longer.

Lingmoor Guest House is one of the best B&Bs I've ever stayed. Great location, 3 mins walk from Windermere rail station. Paula and Graham are very friendly and helpful, they provide detailed travel information about the Lake District. (Thanks for the info - we enjoyed the view from Orrest Head a lot). No lift, but they are happy to help with the luggages. Small room, but very clean and well decorated. They use high quality stuff (can tell from the bed linen and toilet tissue!) which I highly appreciated. We had the best B&B breakfast there. You can even customize your breakfast by leaving a note before - that's just too sweet. Paula is very considerate and detail minded. She left us Earl Grey tea bags in the room just because we had that for the breakfast :) Do not hesitate to book a room here to make your Lake District journey a perfect one!

Wow what a great review. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lengthy review and great to hear we ticked all the boxes in making your stay and excellent one. From our location something as you say is great as we are only 3 minutes walk from the train station. We are pleased us helping us with your luggage was duly noted this is something we like to offer all guests whom we check in ourselves. Also its great that you found the bedrooms well decorated, very clean and the bedding and toilet tissue of high quality. Whilst we are 3 star silver we still like to offer those little luxuries associated with 5 star establishments.
Thanks again and for letting other trip advisor members/viewers to not hesitate booking a room.
We look forward to welcoming you again.
Kind Regards
