Lovely, lovely overnight stay. Room clean with really nice touches, we had a four poster bed a first for us! Spa bath ummmm, really relaxing. Delicious breakfast. Owners are really nice people. Great location, plenty of restaurants to choose from.

My girlfriend and I really enjoyed this Cottage. I rang Graham and he did me a good deal on the superior room. The photos actually don't do the rooms justice, really enjoyed the four poster bed, the spa was nice (it's only a 1 or squeezy 2 person one) but more than comfortable.

The hotel is very centrally located and all the facilities are a short walk from the Cottage.

Breakfasts are really good english breakfasts, as well.

Situated right in the centre of Bowness with everything you'd need a couple of minutes walk away, this was the ideal location. Add to that a fantastic old house, great rooms and superb service and you have a recipe for 10 out of 10 in m book!! Great place to stay, loved it! :)

Room Tip: The Suite is so peaceful with such character!

Me and my partner booked the weekend at Virginia cottage to have a peaceful and relaxing break away before we have our baby. Hotel is situated in a very good location a few minutes walk away from all the amenities. The room was lovely, clean and tidy and the spa bath was amazing. Breakfast is lovely with plenty of choice and very filling too. This was our first stay of many we stayed in room 4 with four poster bed and spa bath will be requesting this room again if possible. Will be back as soon as we can following the baby.

Room Tip: Room 4 is amazing

eight of us have just had a really good weekend in Bowness on Windermere,
we found Virginia Cottage very good to stay at, Graham was very pleasant, rooms were clean and comfortable,very handy for all amenities just a short walk to the lake side.
breakfasts were very good with plenty of choice.
we thought the complementary sherry and biscuits were a really nice touch not seen before.
we will definitely stay there again

We have just returned after our second visit this year to Virginia Cottage. Great location, two minutes from town with lots of nice eateries etc. car parking is free just a short walk from the cottage. Virginia Cottage is an old building but full of charm. Graham is very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. We have stayed in Room 12 (first trip) and Room 10 (four poster!) on last trip. Rooms are very well kitted out, clean, warm and very cosy! Homemade biscuits on the tea tray and an exceptionally good breakfast in the morning with lots of extras to choose from beforehand like cereals, nuts, fruit,yoghurt etc. really is well worth a visit. Even the dog felt at home! We will be back!
