My boyfriend and i stayed here for a weekend. The room was clean as was the shared bath room and nice, definitely a home feel. Only disappointment was that there weren't any bath products (other places I've been have had them so i figured they would have some too). Over all it was a very nice stay.

Comfortable room. Clean. 2 minute walk to lake. Free parking but quite a squeeze. Owners helpful with directions to various places. Did not have breakfast so cannot comment. Overall a good accommodation.

This is a gem of a place, center of Bowness with parking. Continental breakfast was fine for us .Would stay here again. Great couple who run this place lovely room with view of garden so can't understand the negative reviews but I suppose can't please everyone all of the time.

Well to be honest we had not planned to stay in Bowness, so was same day last minute decision. Yes its very central and handy for all amenities but very dated. Reminds me of the old tv programme The Good Life lol. Surrounded by a large carpark but with its own Allotment style garden, which if looked after could be... More

We have stayed in numerous locations in the lake district many times. We booked this online last minute and were really disappointed. The communal areas had a really bad smell however the bedroom was clean. The property could do with a complete makeover and the gardens could be a beautiful feature but were left in a poor state.

Bedroom clean, but communal areas not so clean & path from back of house to car parking in garden had complete dog pooh on it. Lady owner friendly & helpful., B&B well situated but Bowness on Windermere itself is commercialised & grubby looking.
