Room Tip: pick a room.any room will do.

My partner and I visited the Lake District over a long weekend and hadn't been to the area before. Having chosen to stay at the Langdale View Guest House based mostly on the reviews on TripAdvisor, we saw fit to add our compliments to the chorus.

With a great location - central but away from the main roads - well-decorated rooms and restaurant quality breakfasts, this is a great b&b to stay in if you are visiting the area. We were impressed by the small touches: umbrellas,flashlights and walking maps to borrow, parking, ipod dock, a very good selection of DVDs to borrow, options for pack lunches, fresh milk and tea/coffee facilities, and free passes to a local gym/pool/sauna! We felt like nothing was too much trouble, and Anne-Marie showed a genuine interest in all guests while remaining professional at all times. The breakfasts were restaurant quality - not only cereals and a full-english, but a huge range including kedgeree, huevos rancheros, pancakes, etc. - thanks Paul! While some people may find the walk to the house a challenge, the access issues are made clear, and we found the location great.

Will recommend to others and visit again if we are in the area.

Room Tip: We stayed in Coniston - overlooks the car park but is a lovely, cozy room and good value.

Thank you again Ann-Marie and Paul for a lovely Easter break!

This is our third stay at this beautiful B&B and we will of course be returning. Great location near everything in Bowness but tucked away so very peaceful and quiet. As always excellent accommodation with everything you will need, very comfortable beds, crisp fresh linen and spotlessly clean. Breakfasts to die for and an excellent selection and choice of daily specials. Ann-Marie and Paul are the perfect hosts/owners, really friendly, helpful and cannot do enough for you.

We have just returned from 3 days in Bowness and were delighted with the quality of the service and accommodation provided at Langdale View. Our initial concern was that we had been told that the approach road was narrow. However, we had no problem negotiating it in our large shogun. From the moment we arrived we were delighted with the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. The room was spacious and very clean with a great view of the surrounding mountains. Breakfast was great and the pancakes are a delight not to be missed. We would definitely recommend a stay here and would like to return.

We turned up after spending 2 days in Conniston cycling so was pretty tired, and a bit late. The lady owner, Ann Marie, greeted us and told us to leave our bikes outside and her husband would put them away. She showed us to our room, which was the cleanest room we've ever stayed in. We had a knock on the door and they had left some nice coffee and cake outside for us. Once we got ready we went and spoke to them Ann Marie gave us a gym pass for her local gym/ spa.it was late and dark and her husband (paul I think) was still working and had put our bikes away safely. They recommend a lovely Indian restaurant. The breakfast the next day was amazing, I had their famous pancakes, mmm. My girlfriend had a full English which was lovely. All in all we couldn't recommend this highly enough. Lovely people, lovely guest house and great location.

It was lovely to meet you both last year and thank you very much for your kind comments. Its all part of the service that we pride ourselves in providing here at Langdale View including bike storage and arranging those little axtras that make all the difference such as flowers, chocolates, a bottle of 'Fizz' and of course our complimentary tea/coffee and cake on arrival.

Just returned from a very pleasant stay at the langdale view guest house.
Great room (kentmere) with large comfy bed.
Modern en suite.
Great hosts
Very tasty breakfast
Good location to bowness centre
Car parking (although a little bit if a tight driveway, but then again we were in a 4x4. Not a car)
Very clean and tidy.
I can fully understand why this is one if the best B&B's in bowness ...
Will definitely stay again
