Stayed here on Thursday 21st April. Fantastic location, parking over the road and great hosts. Lovely room with homemade biscuits on arrival. The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast in the morning was 10/10 better then any local cafe in bowness. Would definitely recommend and will be back next time we visit.
