Ivythwaite is a "gem" of a hotel and ideally situated for Windermere and Bowness. I stayed there for 2 nights last weekend with my husband Peter and we were not disappointed with the accommodation, and service we received from Mick and Wendy. I had read the reviews on Trip Advisor before I booked, and can concur with the excellent reviews made by previous visitors to Ivythwaite. The hotel is situated in a quiet area of Windermere, therefore I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone wanting a peaceful and rejuvenating visit to the Lake District.

Room Tip: Stay in room no 3 - Skiddaw

Just back from a short stay here in the Nook. Excellent place, clean, quite, tasteful decor and handy for Windermere. We came by train and it was easy to get around. Mick was very helpful. Have been to the Lakes many times but would rate this place ten out of ten.

Room Tip: The Nook is nice for couples

Me and my girlfriend have just returned from a two night stay at the Ivythwaite Lodge. The owner/host Mick was very friendly from start to finish and made us feel very welcome. The location of the lodge is ideally placed as both Bowness and Windermere are a short walk away. We stayed in the Helvelyn room which was a good size and comfortable. Breakfast was very tasty and cooked fresh from a hot choice plus cereals and fruit salad. Wifi is available and worked well for those who want to keep online! Parking no issue with a private car park or on the quiet road. We would highly recommend the accommodation for a visit to Windermere.

Me and my wife stayed at the ivythawaite for 3nights on the last part of our honeymoon. What a great place. Very friendly hosts a beautiful breakfast. Room very nice and clean with four poster and jacuzzi bath. We thought a good location. 5-10 min steady stroll up to Windermere and 10-15min steady stroll down to bowness where its very busy.Can not fault at all and would definetly recommend.

Just back from a lovely weekend break at Ivythwaite Lodge.
My Husband and I stayed in a beautiful,stylish and very comfortable room in the guesthouse which included a grand four poster bed and spa bath. Whilst our son and his family were in the self contained "Cranny Lodge" attached to the guesthouse. The Cranny was perfect for a young family with home from home amenities.
We will most definitely be returning soon if only for the fab home cooked breakfast ;)
Most hospitable hosts, thank you.
Oh and a great central location too !

We stayed for three nights in room 3 which had a kingsize four poster bed, and bathroom had a double jacuzzi bath. The room was beautiful, so clean and had everything you would need. My partner requested champagne for the first night and the owners were so kind to get us some and chill it for us. The bed was incredibly comfy and bath was such a treat! Breakfast each morning was lovely, freshly made, nothing like a dreaded greasy spoon breakfast!
The location is great, 10 min walk to Windermere and 15 to Bowness. We will definitely be back! Huge thanks to Wendy and Mick for a welcoming and enjoyable stay :)
