Cant fault the old court house. It was a last minute choice to spend our honeymoon in windermere and decided to use this bnb. Lovely staff, very polite and friendly. It feels so homely. Comfy beds, great room and would stay here again. Thankyou for your hospitality

Arrived in Bowness without having booked accommodation. Sue couldn't have been nicer and got me checked in straight away. Food was fabulous and the room was excellent. Couldn't recommend this place highly enough.

Sue was great. It was our wedding anniversary and she left us bubbly and a card in our room! Could not have been more accommodating. The location is great. Only a few minutes walk from the lake and main shopping/restaurant area. Thanks again Sue for a lovely weekend!

Checked availability online and rooms available. Rang up 4 days in advance of when I required the booking and was spoken too very abruptly. The tone suggested that I should have know that they were full. I asked for a room and was just told fully booked. I tried to explain that rooms (plural) were still as showing as available... More

Thanks for your comments & I'm sorry you had this experience. Trust me it is not our policy to shout at would be guests & as I am here usually on my own in the afternoon & evenings & I know for certain I haven't shouted at anyone for a long time I'm really at a loss how this happened.... More
