I found this hotel on the internet and having read the reviews decided to give it a go. Although we know Windermere quite well we have never really stayed in this area.
Well what a find...! its situated just outside busy Windermere in the Bowness area but is a little "Oasis". The hotel is quite high up the hillside so has fantastic views of Windermere Lake and further over to "Coniston Man" in the distance. The morning sunshine and evening sunsets were beautiful. It is set in 7 acres of landscaped gardens including a small tarn with beautiful water lilies which you are welcome to wander around.
The hotel has only 14 rooms but I think that this adds to its charm. Many of the people we spoke to were repeat guests who have been returning for years. We had the "Thirlmere" room and although it wasnt huge it was very well furnished with ensuite but being on the front of the building we had views to die for. We loved it.
The staff were more than helpful and you were treated like a personal house guest in a lovely county house. The food was excellant with a choice of at least 5 starters and main courses each night. There were 5 courses including coffee and mints at the end. Breakfast was from cornflakes and fruits to the full english with a delicious home made marmalade (made by the owner !) for your toast. We bought 3 jars to bring home it was that good.
We found the hotel to be delightful and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. If you like peace and quiet in a tranquil setting with good food and fantastic views... give this a go. We will definately be repeat guests very soon.
Oh and for anyone who cant leave their Laptop at home they have free Wifi too...
Thank you to all the staff for making our few days so enjoyable.
