What a lovely place. We had two nights at the Ravensworth and thoroughly enjoyed it. Nick welcomed us on arrival and was very thorough with what was available. The whole house is very clean and welcoming. We had a lovely comfortable en - suite room, which was spotless. The breakfast was very good with lots of choice and the girls serving were lovely. It is in a great position for Windermere town centre. Can't fault this lovely place and will recommend to friends and family. Hope to visit again sometime.

Lovely friendly welcome with a tour of the house and an offer of a hot drink. We arrived earlier than expected but this was no problem.

Large comfortable annex room, with tea/coffee/biscuits/chocolates, a modern clean bathroom, wifi throughout and a relaxing lounge with pc and tourist information leaflets.

Ideally situated for a short stroll to Windermere village - lake a little further walk.

Breakfast was lovely and girl serving very friendly. Would definitely go back. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Just spent a lovely weekend at the Ravensworth. We stayed in one of the annexe rooms with its own little patio, a lovely comfy bed and an excellent shower. There was a good choice of excellent breakfasts served by very friendly staff. The hotel is ideally situated,only a short walk from Windermere where there is a good selection of places to eat.We highly the Ravensworth and will be returning as soon as we can.

What a great find! We couldn't recommend this place more. Nick and Cheryl were welcoming and friendly with Tea/Coffee and home made lemon drizzle cake offered on our arrival, a great little touch after a 3 hour journey. The rooms were spacious and very clean and the location is ideal, a 2 minute walk into the centre of Windermere and a mere 20/25 minute walk to Bowness and lake Windermere itself. There was plenty of choice at Breakfast and it all tasted so delicious. This was most definitely a 5* stay and we are hoping to be back next year!

Thank you for you review and we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us here. Most of our guests come to stay with us not only because of our recent refurbishment of all of our rooms, but also because of our location. We are 1 minutes walk from Windermere village centre and just a 25 minute walk down to Bowness and the Lake. This gives people a feeling of being close enough, but not too close, to everything. We look forward to seeing you again soon, Best Regards, Nick & Cheryl

Thank you for your comments and review and we are delighted that you enjoyed your visit here at The Ravensworth. May we just point out to future guests that this couple were on a package that we put together and we do not always have complementary fruit bowls in the room. We do have Spa passes for everyone who stays with us for a local hotel spa and these are very popular. Best Regards, Nick & Cheryl
