“Excellent weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Have been coming to the Lakes now for over 20yrs,my husband and i really stay in the same hotel twice.but on this visit i would definately return again.
Leigh who owns Montfort Cottage was very friendly,she called you by your first name,which made you feel at home.
There were little extra's touches which you dont always get in other hotels.
Would recommend to friends.
Again Leigh thank you for a lovely weekend.

We have just returned from a lovely 3 night stay at Montfort Cottage. Lovely clean and comfortable rooms, with shower gel, shampoo and conditioner and handwash and lotion. The tea tray in the room is excellent with a choice of tea, hot chocolate, horlicks, coffee, decaf as well and filter coffe,. also a bottle of water. We had a full cooked breakfast every day, which was fantastic, it set you up for the day.All this and reasonably price, I would definately recommend.

We found Montfort Cottage to be well located for our visits to the Lakes and National Trust sites, lying midway between Bowness & Windermere and reasonably priced
Parking on the road was not a problem. Breakfast in bed was fine but crumby, so we were excellently served with cooked breakfast the following morning.
Our room was well equipped (see Visitors Photographs) with all we required, and more. I recommend this guest house to all.
The autumnal colours in the beautiful sunlight were a delight, which we will long remember.

Room Tip: We stayed In the Grasmere Room, which was quiet, clean, outstandingly equipped, warm and with a plea...

This is a great little guest house perfect for a weekend or week away. Perfect location 5/10 mins walk from Bowness and Windermere (as you are right in the middle of both towns)

Guest house homely and we were made to feel very welcome by Leigh. On arrival Leigh greeted us and gave a low down on the guest house and room.

The guest house itself is very well presented and clean. I stayed in Thirlmere, great decoration and lovely little touches in room. .
Room also includes a drinks tray with a good variety of refreshments, tv and dvd palyer, ipod doc and if you want to travel light then theres even luxury shower gel,shampoo/conditioner in the bathroom. Also in the room is a welcome pack with lots of useful info about the area, its attractions and recommendations

I didnt sample the full English breakfast however it smelt delicious I did have the continental breakfast which was very good and had great selction.

I cannot rave enough about this guesthouse, its owner and my stay. I would recommend a stay here to anyone.

Room Tip: Thirlmere, lovely little room, comfy bed, clean and well presented.

I have just returned from a 4 night stay at the lovely Montfort Cottage in Windemere.
When I arrived I was greeted with a warm welcome by the owner who is a very friendly
lady called Leigh. Having shown me to my beautiful ground floor room she spent some
time giving me the lowdown on all the places of interest to see in the area followed by all
the facilities available to me at Montfort Cottage.
My room was very clean and nicely decorated. There were lots of little touches that I was
very impressed with. There was a lovely tray with filter coffee,breakfast tea,Horlicks and
hot chocolate with biscuits and a bottle of water which were well presented on the dressing
table. I was also impressed with the ironing facilities and hair dryer available in the room along
with the lovely shower gels and fluffy white towels in the bathroom. I slept very well throughout
my stay and was greeted with a very substantial and tasty cooked breakfast every morning
that set me up for the day!
I will definitely return to experience Leigh's hospitality in the near future.

My wife and I visited from Australia, and stayed in the Lake District, basing ourselves at Montford Cottage. It was just excellent! Our hostess Leigh was so down to earth, very helpful and cooked a mean breakfast. Quiet location off the main drag, but 10 mins walk to both Windemere and Bowness town centres. Very comfortable and clean rooms, and reasonably priced. Highly recommended.

The B&B is situated on a lovely, quiet street right in the center of Windermere and Bowness. It is in walking distance of both towns. It has a lovely quaint feel to it and the owner is extremely welcoming and made that extra effort to ensure we had a wonderful stay. Great value for money, our breakfast was brought up to our room every day with the option of a cooked breakfast as opposed to the complimentary continental which is included in your stay.
Our room was on the top floor and had excellent views over the hills. Comfy bed, very clean & a TV.
We would most definitely recommend this to anyone wishing to visit Windermere, it's close to everything you need and at an excellent price.

Room Tip: Kentmere has it's own bathroom (with a bath!) on the first floor which is nice. All other rooms...
