“Lovely B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2008

A lovely B&B in a huge gorgeous Arts and Crafts manor house from 1906 located down a single windy road above Windermere/Bowness, and within easy walking distance of both small town centres and their shops and restaurants (though would recommend a taxi for winter nights).

The (very nice) owners Tony and Rhoda have lived here for many years and have kept the house and its original features very nicely. There are just two guest rooms, both with en suites and a shared kitchenette so it feels quite private. Breakfasts are yummy; the gardens and views are good, and the location is great.

Gillthwaite Rigg is absolutely what you'd want for a nice long weekend in the Lakes, so comes highly recommended. It's also deservedly one of Alastair Sawday's Special Places to Stay.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2006

This is the perfect place to explore Lake Windermere. Tony and Rhoda are gracious hosts and their breakfast is outstanding.

The house is a 1900's era arts and crafts home with oak woodwork and antique fixtures.

The two rooms are generous sized and located upstairs with views to the lake (one room). A kitchenette is provided for snack making.

We travelled through Western Europe for 28 days, staying in small hotels and B & B's. This was our favorite and we're hard to please.

If you are Arts and Crafts movement fans, Blackwell House is just a short drive.

Tony and Rhoda recommended great dinners and a beautiful hike.

Stay here!
