We stayed in the small double, and it was really nice. Clean and comfortable, the host was very friendly, and the breakfast and service was top notch, will definitely be staying here again. The b&b is in ideal location for restaurants of bowness and is only a 10 minute walk to the lake. Highly recommended.

My partner and I stayed here for a couple of nights during the easter holidays. We were very impressed with the room and facilities. The owners were very helpful, great hosts and the breakfasts were lovely! Very central to boweness and windemere. Would definitely recommend and stay here again.

Breakfast was served efficiently lovely fresh produce, good selection of breakfast items served super hot, which doesn't always...

After unpacking my husband...

Had a great 3 night stay at this lovely guest house. Convenient location to all the amenities, clean comfortable room, and just like a home from home. Plus, a really tasty full English breakfast to start the day! ,

We stayed here for 3 nights in March and felt very welcome. The staff are all lovely and very helpful. Our room (the superior room) was spacious and very clean. Plenty of freshly made breakfast options too - the full English is excellent! A great location in Bowness and we hope to visit again. Thank you!

We stayed at The Westbourne for one night in the The Cottage Suite and it was beautiful. Service was great, Sue was very polite and helpful. The cottage is well decorated and very clean. The breakfast was wonderful and accommodated my dietary requirements well. Would highly recommend! We will be returning.
