Made very welcome by the owners.. Very modern clean rooms, flat panel tv's etc and bed was very comfortable.. bathrooms very clean and showers powerful... Location is a walk into Windermere, which was fine for us... Breakfast was a feast and service was very attentive... If you want a good, clean, value-for-money guest house, look no further... I can't recomend it enough. We'll be back to see if we can see the deer again...

From the outside it could be deceiving; once you walk through the door you are met with a cheerful welcome and a much needed drink of tea or coffee. The hospitality is genuine, the cleanliness is faultless and the food both taste and presentation is all second to none. Pam is a genuine lady who wants you to have a good time - she is full of useful information - so tell her what you want to do and she will give you great guidance, including where to eat.
The rooms have everything that you would need - no gimmicks - the cleanliness is excellent - Thanks to Colin for that.
Great couple - great service - Keep it up. Thank you for a wonderful break

Only once in a while do you find something so good purely by chance. Feeling the need just to chill out for a couple of days I booked Online based on location and price. I couldn't have hoped for better. I was met on arrival by Pam who was very warm and welcoming and I was immediately treated to a complimentary pot of tea and biscuits in the Guests lounge. In conversation Pam suggested a couple of places to visit in the Lakes that I had never been aware of despite having been a regular visitor to the Lake District for over 40 years. Both turned out to be little jewels in the crown - just like the Firgarth. It may not stand out as you drive out of Windermere towards Ambleside - but it is outstanding. The room was clean, modern, warm and the bed was extremely comfortable. Colin, despite being a Manchester City supporter provided one of the best cooked breakfasts I have had in ages, and the couple have experimented until they have found what they consider to be the best ingredients from the best suppliers. I only wished my stay could have been longer but having had a taste of good old fashioned Customer Service which is not always available these days, I will most certainly return there.
