Vince and Shirley are lovely and accommodating people. The breakfast was superb; best salmon and scrambled eggs ever. Kudos to Shirley! The rooms (dining area/ sitting area and the bedrooms) are very cozy and relaxing. The location of the place couldn't be better, walking distance to the ferry and a short drive away from town. Couldn't ask for anything more....

The location of the b&b manages to combine peacefulness and tranquility whilst being a stones throw from the centre of Bowness. 3 of us stayed, in 2 rooms, both of which were beautifully furnished. The owners were very friendly and knowledgable about the area with good advice about local amenities and attractions. We will definitely be coming here again. Top...
