1 Park Road

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 9, 2012

This is our 4th visit to the Lake District, but my 1st time staying in Windermere as we usually stay in Bowness, but we felt like a change. 1 park Road stood out to us straight away whilst searching for a place to stay, it looked classy, homely and had excellent reviews, and it definitely lived up to our expectations.

Upon arrival it oozed cosiness and we were warmly greeted by Mary, the owner. After giving us a tour of the Boutique B&B, she ensured we had everything we needed and was extremely friendly.

After we had settled into our room, we vacated to the lounge and exerienced a Raspberry Beer and a juicy, full bodied red wine from their vast menu of drinks from around the world, on which Philip, Mary's good humoured husband, is an expert. He is also an expert on crisps and brought us a little bowl of one of his favourite savoury snacks, which we thougt was a nice touch.

The room was very clean, cosy and comfortable and had everything we needed, from an erray of teas and coffee's, biscuits and Kendal mint cake, and his and hers toweling gowns, which I loved after the power shower!

The breakfast was delicious and fresh, with a great choice of cereals and jams. The portions were very generous and filled you up for the day ahead.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and Philip and Mary could not do enough for me and my boyfriend and made us feel really at home and we are looking into booking valentines weekend there already!

Many thanks for your review

Philip does like his crisps and beers from around the world he could write a book about crisps. Many a couple come for a romantic break or maybe just a week end away from the kids- but they do sometimes still bring the dog! We have now got a Duvet Break with breakfast brought to your room served with Bucks Fizz, newspapers at what ever time you want

This was our second trip to the Lakes in the space of a year and we decided to return to 1 Park road as we had such a fantastic stay previously. Got to know Phillip and Mary a lot more this time and have to say they are amazing hosts. Phillip has a great sense of humour and I enjoyed having banter with him about our mutual interests in sports! We had the deluxe suite this time which was lovely and comfy. The breakfast is absolutely fantastic and sets you up for the active day ahead. Mary kindly arranged flowers (as an additional service) on our behalf and ensured they were waiting in the room as a surprise for when we returned from breakfast. We will definitely be back!!

Many thanks for your review and hope to see you again for your third visit

Breakfast is what one guest called a culinary experience. As well as the full cooked breakfast- all freshly cooked to order- there are a variety of fruit compotes, such as prunes soaked in earl grey tea, vanilla pod and a cinnamon stick or fresh yogurt, fresh rhubarb a fruit salad or warm croissants. The breakfast special go down well such as Eggs Benedict or kedgeree.

We do cater for different dietary requirements such as vegetarian or gluten free.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 1 Park Rd. Philip and Mary were very friendly and helpful and made you feel completely at home. Our room was a good size, everything was there that we needed and was very comfortable. The breakfast choice was amazing and we enjoyed the after breakfast chats. Location was ideal, very quiet and not too far from the shops of Windermere. A short drive and we were surrounded by beautiful scenery. An ideal location and B&B.

1 Park Road was very comfortable and cosy. The owners Phillip and Mary were very helpful. The rooms were a good size and beautifully decorated and had everything you would ever need. The breakfast choice was amazing and freshly cooked. We would have liked to have had more that 1 night there. It is a 2 minute walk from Windermere, there is large choice of good restaurants there. We ate at the Lighthouse, the meals were delicious. Bowness was a good walk from Park Road, not sure how long it took to get down, it was 30 minutes walk back up, mostly up hill. Not a problem for us in our 50’s, my ‘breathless’ mother-in-law, at 79 made it down, but wouldn’t even consider it back up! Great stay and recommended.

My husband surprised me for my 70th birthday with a 3 nights stay in Windemere at 1, Park Road. Not having been there before we were a little apprehensive as to what was in store for us. Our hosts were absolutely delightful, we were welcomed with a tray of tea & coffee, and our dog Murphy a yellow Labrador was made to feel right at home as Phillip & Mary also have a dog. We loved the friendliness next morning at breakfast, and the smoked salmon & scrambled egg that Phillip prepared was a "gastronomic delight". Our bedroom was ideal for us, plenty space for our dog Murphy to stretch out on his bed, and still enough room left over for us to sit and relax and have a read. In the evening we were well situated for a large choice of eating places within walking distance, and our favourite was "Hooked" a seafood restaurant just 10mins. walk from Park road. We will hopefully be returning to sample more of Phillip & Mary's hospitality in the near future.

We spent a very enjoyable 3 night stay at 1 Park Road.It is a lovely character house , tastefully furnished in both the lounge/dining room area and the comfortable bedrooms.Breakfast was excellent with a wide range of choices to surely suit everyone s taste.
Phillip and Mary could not have been more welcoming not only to my husband and I but also to our pet greyhound. A truly dog friendly place.
