“Outstanding B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

My wife & i have just had a wonderful stay at Greystone Cottage. This was our second visit & on both occasions we were made most welcome. The B&B was exceptional throughout. The room was cosy, comfortable & very clean. The breakfast was superb & Janet was the perfect host with her lovely smile & friendly chat. One can see she takes pride & pleasure which shows in every aspect in the way she runs Greystone Cottage.Thank you Janet for your warmth & friendliness which made our stay in the Lakes a very enjoyable holiday. Pete & Joyce

Greystone Cottage is a superbly decorated country cottage, situated in the heart of Windermere Village. Windermere is ideal to discover the beauty of the Lake District due to its efficient transport network which operate from the local train and bus station. Greystone Cottage is run by Janet, an exceptional person who did everything in her power to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The hospitality that we have experienced during our thirteen nights stay was remarkable. Janet was always ready to share her expertise and knowledge about the locality to help us to plan a perfect holiday. While we were there, she always made sure that we ate a hearty breakfast every morning before we set off to discover the area. We really appreciated our daily conversations while we were having breakfast. Throughout our stay we always felt welcomed. This has been our second stay at Greystone Cottage and surely it won't be the last. We do recommend Greystone Cottage to all those who would like to have a really good time at this beautiful location. Thank you Janet for making our stay such a pleasant one. See you soon.

We arrived to the B&B after reading TripAdvisor reviews and never regretted it. The location is great, the rooms are very nice, the breakfast is good and Janet, the hostess is very friendly and helpful.
Would recommend to anyone!

My partner and myself stayed in this wonderful little cottage B&B for 2 nights. The room was modern, clean and comfortable. The hostess Janet was very friendly and knowledgable of the area which was a great advantage being strangers to the town. The breakfast was lovely and very filling, and always fresh and piping hot. I would highly recommend a stay at this B&B. Thank you.

We arrived in Windermere after traveling many hours by train to the smile of Janet and a very welcoming environment. There were four of us (two couples) traveling together throughout the UK. Each place we stayed at was top notch, but Greystone had the added plus of feeling like home. The rooms were ensuite, large and very clean. Best beds ever to sleep in and a great breakfast each morning. Janet allowed us to pick her brain on anything we had questions about. We stayed for three days and would come back here without a doubt.

Room Tip: The top attic room has additional room but the other two rooms on the second floor are comfortably l...

I have stayed here twice now, once with a friend and once with my partner. I would always choose this B&B again! (I have stayed in a couple of others in Windermere so have some comparison!) Rooms are flawless - clean and comfy with all you need. And recently redecorated too! Janet is a very special, warm-hearted host, we enjoyed sharing a chat with her in the mornings and she is more than happy to give her guests tips on the local area, day trips, places to eat etc.
Windermere is lovely. We did a few walks around Windermere (plenty of maps available in the tourist information and Janet can also share some tips!), a boattrip to Wray Castle with subsequent walk back to Windermere and a day trip on the bus to Grasmere, which is also really beautiful!
