Breakfast was awesome! Very clean great location. The owners are lovely. My husband found the bed uncomfortable but I thought it was alright. And the breakfast is only servers from 830-9 so that was not the best for us as sometimes you want to lay in on Holliday but overall great stay.

Thank you Iona. Our mattresses are hotel quality and are medium firmness, which suits most of of our guests. We are always try to accommodate early or late breakfast requests and we also offer continental breakfast in bed for those wishes to make the most of their holiday lie-in. Best wishes Jane

Mark & Jane could not be more welcoming, the breakfast was amazing and kept us going all day. The bedroom was comfortable and spacious, the property is maintained to a very high standard. The guest house is well located with a short walk to local attractions. We would certainly stay here again and recommend it to anyone.

The location is convenient to get access to both town centres of Windermere and Bowness. Jane and Mark are very kind and give us tips in details. We enjoy the spacious room and warm atmosphere. 早餐很丰盛,可以根据喜好点餐,房间干净舒适。

Thank you for posting your review today, it is much appreciated. Our location is great for walking into either Bowness and Windermere. This means you can enjoy a glass of wine with your meal in one of the many restaurants we are able to recommend, then walk it off on your way home. Perfect. Best Wishes Jane

The host has prepared us breakfast to take away as we needed to leave early next day and also have kindly sent back a piece of clothing I have left behind. The room is clean and warm and quiet. Many thanks
