Stayed here last month taking 3 rooms for my sisters, friend and mother-in-law. Mother-in law got the best room - single facing the front with excellent views over the hills.! All bathrooms the same with shower, nice white towels and toiletries. We were given use of the front room, which was a bonus so all 5 of us could meet, chat and have a glass of wine before going out. The fire was lit both nights as well which is a real novelty for us townies.
Breakfast consisted of cereals and/or a granola mix with fresh fruit and greek yoghurt which is nice. On top of that there is then the usual full breakfast or a specials board. Plenty of tea, toast and coffee. Very pleasant owners who have recently taken over the house from their parents. We were allowed to have our little dog stay too.
There is a pub/restaurant 2 mins down the road - nice but expensive. We enjoyed The Hare & Hounds the following night more - more relaxed, cheaper and fantastic food. (need to drive to this one though). Bowness on Windermere itself isn't too far away.
So overall - would stay here again. We have stayed in numerous places over the years. Recommend for both service and value. Thank You to the Owners.
