Bay House Lake View
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Spent 2 nights at this B&B, great location and welcoming hosts. The rooms were clean and fresh and we enjoyed the breakfast and the homemade cake in our room! The new owners plan to make some changes and the introduction of a guest lounge will be a good addition, particularly on an overcast day.

Room Tip: Avoid room 4 as it is the only one without a lake side view, but cosy enough as a bedroom

We stayed for 3 nights with Graham & Maxine. The B&B was comfortable and clean with all of the expected amenities. Location was excellent only a minute's walk from the lake and Bowness high street with its many restaurants and pubs, and the free parking in an area where it is usually at a premium was a very welcome bonus. Despite taking over a B&B that clearly needs some TLC, they more than made up for that with their attention to personal touches such as the homemade cake. It will be great to come back and see it again after their planned renovation.

From the moment we arrived we could not fault the hospitality. Both Graham and Maxine were excellent hosts. We couldn't believe this was their first B&B and that they had only been there for a few weeks. They had already got many personal touches in place - homemade cake left in the room and homemade jam and marmalade at breakfast. The location of Bay House is second to none - only a two minute walk from the centre but far enough away to avoid noisy revellers! We really enjoyed our two night stay and can't wait to return.

Room Tip: We had room 4 which had roof top view - very quiet, and slept like a log. If you want a more scenic...

This is a great place to stay that is minutes from the Lake and a perfect place from which to explore the area. There was a group of us that all checked in at different times and Maxine was very accommodating to make sure that she could greet us individually as we arrived.

The room itself was clean and ours was small (but cosy) and it served our purpose as a place to hang our hats while we were out during the day. As a nice surprise, there was some freshly baked cake waiting for us. Breakfast was a bit too early for this late riser but it was tasty and enthusiastically served.

For travellers that are looking to spend a lot of time in their room then this may not be an ideal place since there is no lounge or garden. However, for those looking for a cosy and friendly place to sleep then Maxine and Graham have provided a lovely place to do so.

We booked at the last minute after reading other reviews and were not disappointed. Maxine was more than welcoming, not only did the room come with free car parking but also home made chocolate cake awaited us. This B&B is centrally located in the heart of Bowness and an ideal base for everything you could need. Our room number 5 had a lovely lake view and was very peaceful. The breakfast menu was extensive and freshly prepared to order by Graham even including home made jam and marmalade. After breakfast Maxine and Graham explained their future plans for Bay View and we wish them all the best and can't wait to see what they achieve when we return in September as they have only been there since May.

If you are considering booking here you will not find a warmer welcome, better location or greater value for money.

Maxine thanks for the shopping tips on Keswick we got our candle holder and so much more.

See you both again soon.

Jason and Susan.

I stayed here for 5 nights in which we had a wonderful time and Maxine and Graham were a big part of making that wonderful. I felt so welcome into their home and the room I had was spotless.

I had a room facing the lake which was amazing which I would highly recommend to anyone who is staying there. The rooms alone make it a comfortable stay but with the added extra of a slice of homemade cake in the room made me smile and was very nice.

The Breakfasts every morning were amazing, the menu was very good as it had plenty to choose from and every breakfast i had was delicious. The homemade jam and marmalade was very tasty and made breakfast even more pleasant. Maxine was also very friendly and accommodated anything I asked for.

The location of bay house is excellent it is just on the lake which makes it stand out automatically. Not only is it near the lake but the shops and main town is just around the corner which makes it accessible by foot. Although it is near the town it is still on a quiet road and out the way of the hustle and bustle. For me this is the perfect location you could want.

Although it is the perfect location I would go back just for Maxine and Grahams hospitality as they were so nice and helped me have a fantastic holiday. I will definitely be returning and I thank Maxine and graham for an amazing time.

We were met with a most friendly welcome and a clean, comfortable room awaited us. The location is perfect for access to the shops and the lake front attractions. The breakfast had a wide selection and included home made jam/marmalade as well as the Cumbrian cooked breakfast. There was also some home made toffee cake that was waiting for us in our room along with the tea/coffee making facilities. Car parking was included, not only for the car park that was just 50 metres away but a wide range of car parks in surrounding towns. Graham and Maxine have lots of plans for the the house over the coming months and we can't wait to see some of the upgrades - we have already booked another stay.
