A very pleasant stay. The single room is comfy, good en suite shower. Excellent breakfast. Great spot for walks (& great weather). Very convenient if, like me, you travel by train. Thanks Nick & Cheryl.

Stayed for three nights, this was our second visit to The Ravensworth. Room was very clean and comfortable with lovely little touches such as chocolates in the room. Staff were friendly, the breakfast was excellent and we would stay again if we went back to Windermere as it is in a good location. Sue G.

Greeted by Nick who was very friendly and helpful. Room was lovely, good size, welcoming and very clean. Breakfast was great - staff were efficient and food was exceptional - hubby loved the Cambrian grill and I loved the pancakes and the bacon was fab. Overall I would definitely recommend and hope to visit again. Thank you

We were planning on visiting friends in the Lake District and stumbled across this guesthouse online, and what a find! We were warmly welcomed, the room was brilliant and had everything that we needed to enjoy our stay. The Cumbrian breakfast set us up for a long day hiking. We have recommended this guesthouse to our friends and family and... More
