Lovely hosts.
Great location, 5 min walk from the lake.
Freshly cooked breakfast.
Pleasant rooms with amazing views from your balcony.
We would highly recommend this establishment.

We stayed at Above the Bay for a long weekend and really enjoyed it. The room we had was large, well furnished and clean. We had an LCD TV and tea/coffee making facilities. The bathroom had a large bath and a good shower. Access to the room was via patio doors which led to a balcony with a table and chairs. The room had a nice view of the Lake and Bowness was a few minutes away.

Breakfast was very nice, good quality ingredients were used in the full English and there was a good selection of cereals, fruit, yoghurt etc.

Our hosts were lovely and made sure we had a good stay.
