“Very friendly and inviting B&B with charm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

We booked this after we were disappointed with a pre booked hotel. On the phone they were very friendly and wonderful ensuring we knew exactly were they we're and they told us about parking. We booked in and shown to room 2. This is a triple room at the rear of the property up one flight of stairs. The room was spotless, the bathroom and shower room were gleaming from top to bottom, no dust or anything to be found which is a credit to the hard work and dedication of the owner and staff. The room has every item you could need and more with all the lovely finishing touches that make it unique and full of charm and character.
After a great nights sleep we went for breakfast. It is served in the front living room. Again, everything you could want was there and the cooked breakfast is one of the best I have eaten and piping hot when served.
They could not do enough for you and always asked if you wanted more of everything.
The service is excellent, the staff are excellent as are the rooms and food, nothing is too much trouble. We made our beds in the morning on our return a little note thanking us for doing it with a piece of Kendal mint cake, how lovely is that!!
We stayed for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. A previous review mentioned parking as a problem, well this has been resolved. You can park in the pay and display car park opposite the B&B and place a sticker on the windscreen so you get FREE parking now. Highly recommend this little GEM.

This is a very sweet B&B, the owner is very considerate. She prepares milk for the guests in the evening, and Beatrix potter story books in the bedroom as well as in the breakfast room, which I think is a plus of our stay there.
We stayed in the triple room, because we had three girls, but the room across us, Room 3 (one bed, fits two ppl), i think is more beautiful than ours. It is a great room for a couple to enjoy, I think. (Triple room is a little crowded, because they need to fit three beds in, I am fine with this anyway.:))
Great breakfast and service!:) You get everything you want, even beyond your expectation.:)

Room Tip: The king-size bed on the top floor, (ROOM 3, I think ) is a great choice for couple. Lovely room an...

Lovely room ( No 4 ) and very well equipped. The breakfast was excellent with top quality ingredients. Jean and Dave are warm and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The Guesthouse is in an ideal location to tour the lakes. It is set in the heat of Windermere with lots of bars and restauants within walking distance.
