My husband and I visited this great little B&B a week ago, we were really pleasantly surprised. Very clean and equipped with all the amenities for our stay. The owners were fantastic, very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble! Gave great advise on places to visit. We will definitely be back, great location too, on the doorstep of the town of Windermere and a short walk to Bowness, where we enjoyed a boat cruise on the lake.
We booked this as a little break back in April but had to rebook for Oct due to corona. This is not a problem for the hosts at Holly-Wood Guest House who were more than happy to accommodate. When we rebooked we were made aware that there was no longer breakfast available onsite but we got offered a free upgrade which was lovely! The lady who checked us in was so lovely and jolly and made us feel like we were being welcomed into her own home. It was warm and cosy inside which was nice to come into after getting stuck in the rain! The room was just the same, the bed was super comfy and the shower was great (which my boyfriend couldn’t get enough of)! It was all covid safe and the hand sanitiser smelt lovely! Oh how times have changed haha! Although there was no breakfast onsite we were informed of some nearby places, within walking distance, which offered discount for Holly-Wood guests which was great! Thanks so much, we can’t wait to come back! Just as an additional thing, if you’re planning on coming to Windermere or Bowness, make sure you book your evening meals in advance!! We learnt from previous breaks in other parts of the country how crucial this was. We ate in Baha and The Lamplighter which I highly recommend as the food was unbelievable in both and customer service was great!! There was a lady outside Baha who said she’d tried to get in all week and couldn’t so be sure to plan in advance. We also did the Wray Castle to Latterbarrow National Trust walk which we highly recommend as well as TreeTop adventure climbing!…
Booked a long weekend at this lovely guest house. Ian and family are very friendly and very helpful in the lead up to our stay. The guest house is well positioned for Windermere and the lake and all the local attractions, pubs and restaurants. Our room was very nice and clean which is important at this time and we felt Covid safe at all times. NHS Track and Trace is in place. Thank you for a great stay.
On arrival we parked up, the hosts were lovely & very accommodating. The room was nice & warm, decorated very nicely & It was a nice suprise to see plenty of toiletries & the tea tray was bursting... Very nice. The bed was verrry comfy & we slept perfectly. Thank you for a wonderful stay, we can't wait to return.
We recently stayed at Holly Wood guest house and found both the accommodation and the owners to be fantastic. Room was spotlessly clean and the guest house is only a few mins walk into town. Highly recommend and would definitely stay again.
