I booked 3 nights at this B&B from the recommendations on Tripadviser and they were spot on. This is a lovely house, in a quite street in Bowness, just 5 minutes walk from the lakeside and it has nine double rooms. We had room 7 which has a wonderfully comfortable superkingsize bed and a new shower room. Although the room has a sloping ceiling at one side, the room was spacious and very nicely decorated. The breakfasts were well cooked and there was plenty to eat and drink.

The hosts, Judith and Steve were most helpful and the hospitality was very good.

We shall certainly go again.

We recently spent three nights in this guest house the decor in the room we stayed in was a bit shabby with some of the wallpaper coming away from the walls . The breakfasts were lovely and the view of the garden from the dining room is gorgeous.You park your cars round the back of the guest house and have to climb up some stairs to get round to the front, this was no problem but it is very dark and un welcoming nothing like the front of the house.Considering it has a non smoking policy the towels in our room stank of smoke.

Arrive home after a four night stay where we enjoyed excellent hospitality, a very comfortable room and a lovely breakfast. Nothing was too much bother for our hosts.
Their location is ideal on a quiet street close to the village centre.

We stayed here for 3 nights 21st to 24th May and could not fault anything with this guest house. Immaculately clean room at front of the house (room 3) was a great size with plenty of room. Brilliant location just minutes away from the lake and shops. Fab resturants also nearby, I would reccomend "Fat Olives". The Owners were really attentive and very pleasent. Breakfasts were stunning and service was superb. Will definately stay there again when next in the Lake District.

great location close to lake, shops & bars. service was great, breakfast fantastic, room was hotel standard. only down side was the tiny television and no guest lounge, however since we didn't spend much time in the room neither was a big issue and i imagine resolving them could be expensive for the owners. will definately stay there again as we loved it.

We stayed here from 11-13th May to celebrate our 23rd wedding anniversary and had a wonderful weekend. The room was lovely, we had room 3, with the four poster bed and it was perfect and very clean. The little touches such as the dressing gown in the shower room and coffee and tea facilities with biscuits was lovely. The breakfast was perfect and sets you up for the day and nothing was too much trouble, Steven even moved his car so we could get parked.

Room Tip: Check out the cinema on the main street, well run, cheaper than normal and very quaint.
