I definitely recommend the firgarth as a place to stay when visiting Windermere. It was spotless, and the owners were so kind and helpful. As soon as we walked in we were given a map and talked through the different walks and areas. Only a ten minute walk away from shops and bars the firgarth is in a great location....
