Myself and my wife stayed here for the weekend and is a beautiful place set In a beautiful location.. Graham and Maxine couldnt be more helpful.. the rooms were spotless and cleaned to an excellent standard.

The rooms were replenished everyday with fresh cups and top ups of tea, coffee etc.. The homemade cake in the room on arrival was lovely also.

Will be booking to come again soon!

My husband booked us into the Bay House for one night last week last minute - that afternoon. He booked directly with Maxine over the phone and asked if it was OK if we could check in later due to the last minute plan and the distance we had to travel, which she was perfectly happy with. On arrival we were greeted vary warmly and shown to our room. Our room was quite small but nice and clean with all that we needed - the homemade ginger cake that was in our room was beautiful. We had a lovely stay and a good night sleep. The traditional breakfast was lovely, just enough, cooked fresh and not at all greasy.
The location is perfect. A short stroll away from the restaurants and bars yet very peaceful and quiet. Maxine couldn't do enough for you, asking if everything was OK and always happy to help with anything, and her husband makes a mean fry up!!
I would more than happily stay at the Bay House again and recommend to friends and family. Thank you for a lovely stay....just what the doctor ordered!! The Baileys

Room Tip: Book directly with Maxine so she can tell you what rooms are available.

We stayed at Bay View for one night last week and had such a lovely stay. We had a warm greeting from Maxine, who showed us to our room and ironed us clothes to go out in that evening.

The homemade cake in the room was a lovely welcoming touch.

The b&b is in a great location, with shops, bars, restaurants and the lake only two minutes away.

The breakfast was freshly cooked to order and was delicious.

All in all this was a great night away and we would return.

We were given a warm welcome by the new owners who are very friendly and helpful. Our room was lovely - extremely comfortable beds; very clean en suite with shower; soft and fluffy white towels and immaculate bed linen; tea/coffee making facilities with delicious home-made cake every day and a fantastic view of the lake.There was a wide choice for breakfast, which set you up well for the day.
Even though Bay House is surrounded by all the amenities you need - restaurants, shops, pubs, car park and of course the lake, it is very peaceful and quiet - a lovely place to stay..
Maxine and Graham are a lovely young couple who have just taken overrthe Bay House. They are working very hard to refurbish it lovingly and to high standards.
I will be back next year and thoroughly recommend this guest house to everyone.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 6 with a fantastic view of the lake.

Lovely friendly little place. Maxine and Graham haven't long taken over and plan to make this place even better, Friendly, clean quiet and just a lovely place to stay. Close to Lake, shops restaurants and would recommend The Hole t wall pub as a nice spot for a night cap as close by.

This is the 3rd time we have visited Windermere and decided to stay at a different hotel after reading the fantastic reviews on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. We arrived before check in and were greeted by Maxine and Graham who were lovely - very down to earth and accommodating. We were able to leave our bags which were moved into our room by the time we had come back. Although the room wasn't huge, this wasn't an issue - how much time do you spend in the guest house anyway? The room was clean and the home made cake was delicious!

The rooms were cleaned thoroughly on a daily basis, much better than any other guest house we have stayed in at the lakes. Breakfast was delicious, there is a menu you can choose what you would like to eat. This was good for couples such as ourselves who do not want to eat a full English breakfast everyday! The location was also excellent. A couple of mins walk to all attractions, shops and of course, the bars! Despite its central location, it is not noisy and we enjoyed a good nights sleep.

Overall, a fantastic stay and we would definitely return. This guest house is set apart from the rest due to the great attitude of its owners, Graham and Maxine, despite them being new owners. We look forward to seeing what changes have been made (renovations) on our next visit!

Many thanks, Michelle and Andy
