Very convenient location halfway between Windermere and Bowness. Nice rooms, very friendly owners. Continental breakfast delivered to the room is a very nice touch. The cottage is across the room from a busy and loud primary school, but you're not planning to spend the day indoors, are you?

Excellent place to stay really enjoyed good locality and the breakfast were awesome too. Recommend it to any one. Would definitely stay there again. Hospitality from Paul and Sue was top notch! The bedrooms are modern and cosy and this little place has a great location between windermere and bowness. Great choice of hot drinks available in the room which came in very handy!

Such a lovely place to stay!
Very nice room, cleaning was good, excellent breakfast, good range of DVDs to borrow.
Great location with short walking distance both to Windermere and Bowness.

But best of all: the great hospitality from the owners Sue and Paul. Such a lovely couple who made sure we had the best stay with great service and personalized breakfast, always a smile, gave lots of good advices on how to make the most of our holiday.

We had probably not been more satisfied with a hotel.

We will definitely book at this place again if we're returning to beautiful Windermere!

John and Linda what can we say but thank you for a lovely review and that you two were a pleasure to look after. A perfect couple and guests that all guesthouses would be delighted with. If you can drag yourselves from Norway to visit the Lakes again, then please come and stay at Montfort Cottage again. All the best Paul and Sue xx

What a beautiful little guesthouse!

Our room was really impressive with fantastic finishes all over. We were even taking notes on how to do our house! The breakfast and coffee is top notch. The location is in great. Just a short walk to anywhere. If we are back in the area this is where we will stay.
