Lovely B&B in a great location in Windermere, close to all local amenities and a 15 minute downhill walk into Bowness. Friendly hosts with good local knowledge of various walks and activities. Clean and well presented bedrooms and a great breakfast. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Fantastically comfortable rooms and beds, very tastefully decorated with all the attributes that you would normally associate with a five star hotel. As a connoisseur of the great English breakfast I would rate this as an outstanding culinary achievement to wake up to in the morning, comprising of all the key ingredients perfectly cooked and presented. Our dog Domino was...
