We stayed for a long weekend, Friday-Sunday. Welcome was warm as previously. Great location for the centre of the village with good car parking. Nice room, very clean and well presented. Good hearty breakfast, perfect for a few days relaxation.

Lovely B&B in Hawkshead. Excellent location for town and for exploring the lake district. Rooms lovely, well-equipped, clean; good-sized bathroom (we stayed in room 6). Breakfasts excellent with lots of choice. Staff were lovely, friendly and helpful, with plenty of recommendations of things to see and do.

We very much enjoyed our two night stay at the Ivy Guest House. Comfortable rooms and beds, a great location, excellent breakfasts and a very friendly welcome from Darren and his team combined to help make our brief visit to the Lakes very successful.

Clean, tidy, and a warm welcome awaits you. The Ivy was a great place for a one night stay in Hawkeshead. Nice choice of breakfast. Huge 4 poster bed in the room. All in all a lovely place. We'll definitely be back. Thank you!
