I chose Above The Bay for my first visit to the Lake District because it is in a great location, it's reasonably priced and it is dog friendly. The owners, Trevor and Claire were lovely and had no problem with us bringing our Jack Russell with us as long as we agreed not to leave him in the room alone, the only time we did that was when we went for our breakfast. Upon arrival we were greeted by Claire who showed us around our room and recommended The Royal Oak as a pet friendly pub for our evening meals (see seperate review), our room was clean, the bed was comfy, we had tea and coffee making facilities, a balcony to walk out onto and a great view over the town and lake. Access to Bowness town centre couldnt be easier, just a short walk down the steps through the front garden and a few minutes walk down the road and you are there. In the mornings there was plenty of fresh fruit, cereal and jams / spreads and also the option of a full english breakfast with tea or coffee (veggie option also available). We will definitely stay here again next time we visit the lakes!
