Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 6, 2008

you couldn`t ask for a better b&b,this place would put most hotels to shame.Whilst the host and hostess are unintrusive,they are welcoming warm and extremly helpful in pointing out local sights to see and places to visit. A lovelier place to stay in England i believe would be hard to find.

We stay in many guest houses, and this one scores top marks in every area. The owners really go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable, and the house itself is very impressive.
We stayed in bedroom 7 and enjoyed great space, light, bed and en-suite with the best power shower ever! The breakfast's were locally sourced and they even include an option of home made yoghurt and compote.
I can't praise this guest house enough and would recommend it to anyone.
Many thanks and recognition to Vince and Shirley for their wonderful hospitality.

My wife and I had a wonderful relaxing stay at the Storrs Gate House.

We checked out other reviews prior to choosing and agree wholeheartedly with all the positive comments about the hosts, the standard of the accommodation and the excellent home made yoghurt and breakfast.

We hope to visit again soon

We have just returned from a truly wonderful stay in the Lake District. Storrs Gate House was selected from a shortlist we had made. We were certainly not disapointed. We managed to get a look at all the rooms, and they are all wonderfully decorated and clean. The owners, Vince and Shirley are very friendly, kind and honest people, who are more than happy to offer you information and advice on the local area. We can't wait to go again, and I wouldn't even think of staying anywhere else!

We stayed at Storrs Gate for our mini honeymoon and we certainly were not disappointed. Its a little gem of a place, beautiful gardens and the interior is gorgeous. We stayed in room 3 with a four poster bed, fantastic power shower ( for after the long days ) The rooms are done out to a very high quaility, the staff are all wonderful and very welcoming, Vince and Shirley cannot do enough for you, full of information and on hand if you need anything, we even got home late one night ( a little fresh I may add ) and it had been raining, Shirley even offered to dry our clothes off for us!. Its a 10 mins slow walk into bowness where they have some lovely restaurants and bars, we are not new to the lakes but if we were i am confident Vince and Shirley would have been on hand to point us in the right direction. The breakfast is out of this world and just want you to set you up for the day. I would highly recommend this place to anyone, we will certainly be returning, i wouldn't want to stay anywhere else!

Just returned from a two night stay at the guest house, I had room number one and have to say it was the first time I ever slept in four poster bed and had my own balcony absolutely fantastic.

A great location in Windermere, close to everything but a bit away when you want the peace and quiet, very professional service and rooms are fantastic. Not sure what other B&B's charge but the Storrs gate is well worth the money a five star experience.

As an added bonus SKY tv boxes in the room showing the freeview channels make the evenings pass a bit quicker, when it rains anyway.

Only downside, you have to be very cautious when leaving the premises as the exit is at a junction, just look over your right shoulder and move out slowly.

If you want a lovely stay in beautiful Windermere you should try the Storrs Gate House, and if you like your wildlife look out for the birds and the squirrel at the bird feeder when having the delicious breakfast, I would recommend the full Breakfast as the bacon is delicious.

we have just returned from a three night stay at storrs gate house,and stayed in the Victorian room,which was just gorgeous.great size room,extremely clean and a newly renovated shower room which was great (the power shower was awesome!).
we loved the fact that the owners were so discreet but also always around should you need advice on places to go for dinner. we loved Bowness for small restaurants and pubs and the hotel is within a short walk back.(actually felt far enough away to be very peaceful)......we loved the attention to detail..the music playing in the kitchen while they were cooking us our brekkie and generally everything about this place. there are loads of beautiful 5 star b and bs in the lakes and we will probably try a different one next time,but i have a feeling this is one of the best!!!!
