The room was lovely and it even had the good type of biscuits and Cadbury's hot chocolate. What's not to like!?!... More

Windermere and Lake district is a place to visit. We enjoyed the countryside and benefit sunshine and warm weather. The Southview Guesthouse has a wonderfull indoor swimming pool close to many restaurants and 2 miles away from the lake shore.

My husband & i spent Monday to Friday here and had such a lovely time. Our room was beautiful at the top of the house with stunning views, lovely bathroom with shower. Breakfast was perfect. The location was superb & peaceful with an indoor pool going out onto a pretty terrace area to sit out. Highly recommend.
