We just had a wonderful 2 nights here, Lovely and quaint B&B. Clean, friendly and comfortable rooms. Lovely breakfast. Perfect location. Definitely returning next year. I would recommend the Albert pub for both food and / or drinks.

The B&B is perfectly located right in the centre of Bowness within walking distance of the lake and all the shops and bars on offer....we couldn't have been in a better place! The owners were friendly and helpful, getting us checked in and parked up with...

The room itself was very dusty , tops of wardrobe and light fittings were coated. The wall lights weren't fixed to the wall properly and were loose and twisted around. The...

The breakfast was ok but the room wasn't upto much as it was very small and the window faced workmen working on a house. The toilet had to be flushed several times to flush but all in all it was OKit was very central to all the attractions and just s five minute walk to Windermere lake

Just had a 2 night stay at this lovely B&B. Free parking on site, which is a massive bonus as it's right in the middle of Bowness, and we even got help carrying our bags from the car. The room was immaculately clean and the owners/staff couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly. The full English breakfast was the best...
