Thanks to previous reviews we booked this B & B for a weekend away. It's perfectly appointed for walking to both Windermere and Bowness so for a weekend away there is no need to use the car. Our room was a mixture or old, modern and quirky so something for everyone, whilst also being very spacious with a large comfy... More

A disappointing visit to this hotel, we were looking forward to a short break and after seeing great reviews we booked the Boundary. The previous reviews were all based around a welcoming host who could not do more for you, this was not the case. No one there when we arrived it took ten minutes for them to answer the... More

We stayed here for three nights, it is an ideal location for the surrounding lakes and villages. A short walk to bars and restaurant. The B&B its self is lovely, rooms are beautifully furnished and the ensuite is fab. both really clean and comfortable. The owners/staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast was excellent with a... More

I booked the Maclaren room for a birthday surprise trip to the lakes and it was perfect! The boundary is very cute and the room had one of the comfiest beds I've ever slept in. We also loved the huge wooden shutters on the windows and the remote controlled shower/bath with all the extra complimentary toiletries such as the rose... More

Lovely cricket themed Hotel/B&B, who do the simple things very well. Genial host, ample parking, lovely room with four poster bed & modern bathroom. The location is a plus point also with Bowness and Windermere both within a 10 minutes walk. Also any review must mention the breakfast, the Black Pudding is an absolute must.

Thank you for your lovely review. Really kind of you! I just wanted to make one point - the Boundary is definitely a B&B, not a hotel; we are too small to offer some of the things hotels can, though we hope to make up for that in other ways. See you again soon Steve More

What a find! Great surroundings, Hobbs room fantastic; spacious and stylish, lots of little extra touches. breakfast was superb fresh local produce and freshly squeezed orange juice. Good location short walk to towns and lake. Try Angel pub if weathers good you can just about see lake Windermere from the lovely gardens. Porto is a great restaurant too.

Many thanks for your fantastic and informative review! It's great when visitors pass on their tips.

Thanks for this great review which I will pass on to my fantastic housekeeper whose name is Inge. She's been with me 13 years and often gets mentioned in reviews. We couldn't offer what we do without great staff. Hope to actually meet you next time you stay, Rosie! Steve More

My husband book this as a anniversary present. Great choice for him. We were welcomed very nicely and shown to our room which was the HOBBS room. It was very spacious.

What a lovely review! Thank you and I am really glad you enjoyed your stay. I'm sorry you were cold during the night. In spring temperatures vary widely from day to day and if we leave the heating on all night guests can end up boiling hot when the weather is mild! I think on this occasion I just decided... More

Nice enough, but not 5 star, and at £160 a night, way over priced. It's just an above average B&B. Room was a bit dowdy and in need of decoration. Nice bathroom. Parking for four cars, but almost impossible to get in and out without everyone shunting around. Nice breakfast. Nice owner. Just overpriced. Spa Hotel at the bottom of... More

The-Boundary, Owner at The Boundary, responded to this review

Thank you for your review and your feedback. I think it was very fair considering you felt the stay was overpriced. As you paid £160 for one night I'm guessing you stayed a Saturday, and also that quite possibly you booked through a third-party site, for example Booking.com. Despite their protests they are not cheaper - and they are usually... More
