Stayed one night with my 18yr old daughter in a twin bedded room. Couldn’t fault anything - lovely welcoming hosts who very helpful and accommodating. Quiet location away from the main road, we both slept very well. Perfect location to enjoy Windermere and walk to Bowness-on-Windermere. Super value for money for this area.

Just returned from a 3 day 2 night stay in this beautifully presented guest house run by very welcoming hosts. We arrived early but welcomed by leva who pleasantly let us check in early. Our room was fully equipped with everything we needed, a good size and nice tv. The en-suit again plenty of room and a amazing shower. Breakfast is really hearty with good quality products. Parking is limited but plenty on the street outside. The location is really good as it's only a 5 minute walk into Windermere and 15 mins down into bowness. All in all a beautiful place run by a lovely couple... would 100% stay again

Great location within walking distance to Windermere. Free parking outside and around the back. We were greeted on our arrival by Leva and baby Thomas, both very smiling and happy making us feel very welcome. Our room was immaculately clean, comfy bed and super bedding. The bathroom was great with lovely little touches of toiletries and massive fluffy white towels. Tea, coffee, biscuits etc in abundance and we had a very good quiet nights sleep. Breakfast in the lovely dining room was great, cereals, fruit, croissants, toast juice, tea and coffee and all before a full menu including bagels with scrambled egg and smoked salmon, full English and much more cooked by Ian, nothing is too much trouble. We would throughly recommend anyone staying here and we will be back. It was a breath of fresh air a wonderfully welcoming Bed and Breakfast.

We stayed at the Holly-Wood just for 1 night on a quick trip to the lakes. From the moment we walked in we felt comfortable, we arrived early which was no problem to the hosts who were happy to give us our keys ready for us to come back later. The room was spacious and exceeded my expectations, with a lovely bathroom and a very comfortable bed! Breakfast which was included in our booking was a wide range to choose from both hot and cold and the service was excellent, with both hosts coming to speak to us at breakfast and give us tips on where to go that morning. Would definitely stay again and would recommend, fantastic hosts and a lovely hotel! Thanks guys :)

Clean and very comfortable room, delicious breakfast and friendly and welcoming owners made this an excellent experience. Highly recommended. Bowness was the place to visit and a trip on the boat to Ambleside is a must
