Our family of 4 have spent 4 nights at Laurel Cottage in August in room 4. The B&B is in a quiet residential area of Windermere, only a couple of minutes away from the centre, and a few minutes drive from the more lively Bowness on Windermere. The room was the right size for our family, and was extremely neat...

4 of us have just spent 5 nights here. We had room 4 & 5. Room 4 is bigger. Rooms were both clean and tidy. Would definitely recommend this b&b. Good value for money. Breakfast was cooked to order, with cold options also and a daily special. The b&b is a short walk to Windermere town centre. Wayne and Alison...

Just returned from a lovely two night break in room 4 at Laurel Cottage.

We had a lovely weekend here last month and stayed in room 3, with the four poster bed. The room was spotless with plenty of space and the bed was really comfy! Wayne and Alison made us very welcome and the breakfast was fab. We can't wait to return and look forward to that four poster!!!

Alyson and Wayne made us extremely welcome to their home where we stayed for four nights at this beautiful Lake-land house.
