“Great Find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

Just had our first stay at The Coppice, but it won't be our last!
We were delighted upon arrival to find we had been upgraded free of charge to a four Poster room, which was exactly as the photos. The room was well furnished, very clean and tidy and the host was very welcoming, even providing some Sherry to relax with in the evening. The welcome tray was well stocked, and fresh milk was offered should we have wanted any. The breakfast was very nice and had one of the the best selections I have come across.
The En-Suite bathroom was spotless and warm, with plenty of hot water and toiletries, but a little on the small side, as we did have to get dried in the room, but this wasn't a problem for us. The room had two windows, looking over a cross roads, and although we did hear some road noise, it's not too busy, and it certainly didn't spoil our night away. I did read the Guest Book and there seemed to be nothing but happy customers of which we are one. Very enjoyable stay, Thank-You.

Just got back from a weekend break from the Coppice, we stayed in the cosy room which was as expected cosy. Yes the bathroom is small but for a 2 night stay it serves its purpose. Everywhere nice clean and tidy, breakfast very nice and we would gladly return and recommend this place. Also please do call into the local working mans club which is a nice,clean place and you won't be ripped off for your beer like you will in other Windermere pubs - it,s on the doorstep of the coppice just turn right up towards Windermere and you will find it on the RH side you can't miss it.

Everything was great. Comfy beds, open fire, lovely breakfast, great location and free entry to the spa at a nearby hotel. There was even sherry in the room on the first night and the option of kippers or scrambled eggs with smoked salmon for breakfast, as well as the traditional full English (which was also very tasty).

Stayed here with my partner between Christmas and New Year. So perfectly located for both Windermere and Bowness. A nice walking distance to both if the weather holds up, unfortunately we didn't have such luck!

A cute little place run by the lovely and hospitable Barbara and Chris. Each room has its own personality. We opted for Room 5 with the whirlpool bath, which was perfect for the horrible wet Winter weather outside, especially with a nice bottle of red!

Breakfast here is absolutely superb; all local produce. It's hard to stray from a full English!

If you're in the area I would definitely recommend The Coppice.

Hi thanks for your wonderful comments about the Coppice. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and we enjoyed having you stay with us. The SPA bath is definitely a hit with all of our guests and it a lovely time with all the Christmas decorations up and the twinkling Trees. Sorry we couldn't fix the weather, perhaps next time..

Barbara and Chris made us very welcome at the new year. We stayed with them for 2 nights the bedroom was well kept welcoming and we enjoyed the nice touches that greeted us when we arrived. The food was excellent. And we would recommend this bed and breakfast hotel. Good food, good company and fireworks at midnight great break thoroughly enjoyed

At the Coppice we offer a choice of bedroom types from our ONE smallest Standard room - a cosy double, up to kings, 4 posters and a Deluxe double with a Spa bath. The Cosy double is our smallest room on the second floor, well insulated, warm and cosy in winter, with room to walk round the bed and a sitting area. (Bedroom 7 picture on our website). The shower cubicle is 720cm square and you do not sit with your face in the sink - but it is not spacious. (All the measurements are on the booking.com website).
For their 4 night stay they were paying £68 per night for 2 people Bed and a great breakfast, including our complimentary SPA club membership nearby at a deluxe 4 star Hotel. The lady came to see us on the second day, she said because she had booked over 11 months in advance she expected to get one of our better rooms (but still pay £68 per night). We said we were very sorry but as it was New years Eve we were full and could not change their room. We offered them a bottle of fizzy for that night, we would upgrade them to a 4 poster the following night and not charge them for the 4th remaining nights stay. She took the wine then 1/2 hour later left. We did charge for the New Years Eve night, but promised, it would be refunded if we re-let the room. We re- let the room for 2 nights an hour later to a passing couple, So we gave them a full refund to her card.
