We had a wonderful stay at Montfort Cottage...
Paul and Sue instantly made us feel welcome and comfortable. They were very friendly and helpful when we asked for information on different walks that we could experience and their recommendations matched exactly what we wanted from our stay in the lakes. The room we stayed in (Kentmere with a separate but private bathroom) was extremely clean, comfortable and had good facilities including a sink, tv with free view and DVD player, iPod alarm clock and a lovely view towards the town and lake. Paul and Sue also provided us with a wifi code to access free wifi during our stay.
The location is superb, located between Winermere and Bowness with a 10 minute walk to either of them. We walked to both but found Bowness to be a bit livelier with a bigger choice of places to eat and drink. Sue had recommended Shahib's Indian restaurant in Bowness and it didn't disappoint (we even spotted Paul and Sue dining their that evening).
Breakfast at Montfort Cottage is a must. We stayed for two nights so on the first morning we enjoyed cereal (from a selection) followed by a traditional English breakfast. On the second morning we ate savoury pancakes and scrambled eggs, one with bacon and one with smoked salmon, both were delicious. Highly recommend the scrambled eggs! Tea and coffee alongside orange juice were all available and Sue made sure we didn't go without if we wanted refills. A brilliant start to the day and the breakfast times were great, allowing an earlier or later start.
We highly recommend this bed and breakfast to any couple who want to stay in the lakes. We were so impressed that we couldn't wait to write a review. Thank you for a great stay. We hope to see you again when the whirlpool is in :)
