Newstead Guest House
Ranked #59 of 107 Windermere B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 9, 2012 via mobile

This was a lovely guest house. My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in a four poster bed room. The room was immaculate, clean, lovely. Ensuite the same. The house itself was lovely, traditional and lounge and dining area very nicely decorated. This was a perfect location for exploring the lakes. 5 mins walk to Windermere town and 15 mins walk to Bowness. 5 mins walk to lake front. Easy drive to Ambleside, Coniston, Keswick etc. Really enjoyed our stay here. The hosts are lovely, very helpful. The breakfast was lovely with a full English on offer everyday and any variation...in fact anything you like really, cereal, toast, croissants etc. Can't fault it (my husband did mention the only addition to his breakfast could be black pudding!). We loved it and would highly recommend if you are visiting this area.

Just spent a very enjoyable weekend at Newstead. We had a suoerior 4 poster room which was extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean. The owners were friendly and welcoming , showing us a list of places to eat which had been recommended by other guests. We went to the Italian in Windermere and the Thai in Bowness , both on the list, both good.l

Newstead was exactly what we expected from the website. The period furnishings are lovely and the drawing room and breakfast rooms both comfortable. The breakfasts were very good and lots of choice.

In short, a well run, hospitable and comfortable place to stay.

My husband and I decided to stay at Newstead for our honeymoon. And it went beautifully. The owners are very friendly and informative about the area which was helpful for us to decide how to start our exploring in Windermere. Room was really nice, clean and got service everyday. Breakfast was excellent in every aspect. Wifi worked nicely, consistently. We felt very comfortable and welcomed. Everything we needed for a holiday stay. checked! I'd recommend Newstead.

Just returned from a week-end at Newstead. Lovely property crammed full of period detail, from the William Morris wall coverings to the beautiful collections of Victoriana & crystal chandeliers. Couldn't fault either the property or the wonderful owners who provided advice on the local area. Add to this the warm comfortable bedrooms and huge, delicious breakfasts and this guest house definately deserves it's five star rating. We hope to return soon

Just returned from a two night stay at Newstead Guest house, lovely friendly welcome, nice rooms and facilities, beautiful lounge and dining rooms, and the bedroom was perfect.
Ross advised on local places to eat and visit. The location is perfect too, just a short stroll up to Windermere village or a slightly longer stroll (15 mins) to Bowness centre. The breakfast choice was ample and served perfectly. Would definately stay here again and was excellent value for money.
