“Great Place to Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

My husband and I have just returned from a 4 night stay at 1 Park Road, we could not fault a thing. The hotel is in a great location with all the sights within easy reach. We stayed in the superior room, which was lovely and had a very comfy bed! There were hot drink making facilities in the room which was nice and complimentary Kendal Mint Cake. Breakfast was great with a good selection of fruit, cereals and the very yummy full English. Philip and Mary were fantastic hosts and we were very well looked after, they gave up lots of information on trips out and on arrival Mary welcomed us with drinks and homemade cake, which was lovely after a long journey. Thank you to you both for making our stay great, we look forward to returning next year. We will certainly be recommending you to all our family and friends.

We only stopped one night but had a very enjoyable stay. The house is within an easy walk of either Windermere or Bowness and is in a quiet residential area. Our room was comfortable and the breakfast choice and quality was excellent. The hosts have plenty of information to help you explore the area as well... A good all-rounder!

We stayed at 1 park road 3 nights during august. The B&B is very well situated between bowness and windermere. The B&B displayed various pieces of artwork and photography from local artists and photographers. Phillip and Mary made us feel at home and were very welcoming.We stayed in a large double room which was very comfortable, the bed was amazing! And we both slept so well each night. Phillip was helpful and knowledgeable about the local area and even gave us maps for our walks. Breakfast was also very nice with a wide selection....and if you getting chatting for long enough, Phillip may even tell you one of his jokes! Will definitely stay and again and recommend to our friends.

I have never experienced hospitality like I have at 1 Park Road. Philip, the owner, even picked us up from the train station and we received a warm welcome once there. The building itself is beautiful with a relaxing lounge area. I like the fact they have local artwork up on the walls and prints that you could buy. Me and my boyfriend stayed in the luxury en-suite (free upgrade) with king size bed, tv and ipod docking station. The tea/coffee and hot chocolate making facilities in the room were very good (with complimentary kendal mint cake!). Night time is very quiet so we always had a good nights sleep. The breakfast was great, tasty and fresh. I highly recommend the scrambled eggs! The homemade honey from Mary is also very good! The hotel is round the corner from the centre of Windermere and the train station and a 20min stroll to Bowness. I would like to commend Philip and Mary on being excellent hosts and running a lovely hotel.

We spent three nights in this lovely house celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary. Philip and Mary were wonderful hosts, catering to our vegan diets without batting an eye. Great location a 5 minute walk from the station, but tucked away in a residential area away from the main road. Our room was clean, comfortable and homely. Breakfast was delicious and we enjoyed little chats with Philip and Mary and the other guests each morning afterwards. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a cozy, relaxing and warm atmosphere.
