Stayed here for two days as a mini-honeymoon following our wedding in Canada. It was a bit of a last minute decision to come so we hadn't done any research in where to walk or visit but we needn't have worried. The owner, Ken, was incredibly helpful, giving us advice on where to go and then providing us with our own [foolproof] copies of the walks.
The room was immaculate [we stayed in room 3 with the four-poster] and the bathroom spotless and gleaming. The guesthouse is well away from the main road so is very quiet at night, and we both agreed the bed was probably the most comfortable we've ever slept on. Breakfast was excellent - I'm a vegetarian which wasn't a problem at all. Veggie sausage, eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms, sautéed potatoes, falafel and beans made up the full Cumbrian. When I asked for no beans the next morning as I don't like them, I got an extra falafel! It's the little details that make this into such a stunning B&B. We were also given the window seat [possibly because we were honeymooning?]
Location is ideal, slap bang in-between Windermere and Bowness and about an easy 10 minute walk from each.
We did the cake walk on the first day, which was great, but the highlight of our visit was the walk to the Windmill Inn, probably the best pub I've ever been to. It has it's own brewery and excellent home cooked food.
Thanks again to Ken and Cindy for making our honeymoon so special, we'll only ever stay in one place when we visit the lake district :)
