I loved my stay at Oakfold House, which I found by searching the ""Visit Cumbria" web site. Best location to walk to everywhere important, caring owners, quality food, high quality bedding, the bus to anywhere stops 100 yards from their front door. Just a good sleep for a good price.

Had a great stay in lovely B&B, room was nice, comfy bed. Staff were warm, friendly & helpful. Ideal spot,just 5 mins from the centre of Bowness. Enjoyed the meals out at The Albert (large potions!) & the Trattoria on the hill. Would definitely go back

We stayed at Oakfold for 3 nights and never used the car once. It is well located with a few minutes walk into Bowness.

We enjoyed a few days in Bowness at Oakfold House, it is a well located base to travel around the southern and northern lakes or if you prefer to relax , Windermere is a great place to wander at a more leisurely pace.
