We had a lovely stay at Oakfold House in November this year. The B&B is an ideal 10 min walk from Bowness and only 15 min from Windermere. The rooms are ideal size and the bed was really comfortable. Breakfast was the perfect start to the day - with a range of different options. Max gave us all the information... More

We stayed at Oakfold House overnight on our way up to Scotland, wish it could have been longer. The B & B is well situated for walking into both Bowness and Windermere and exploring the rest of the lakes. Our room was very well appointed with everything you would need for a comfortable stay. The breakfast was of a very... More

Having read all the reviews we thought this would be the ideal place for us. We arrived at 6 (as arranged) and only just found it due to the lack of lights at the front - After trying the bell several times and knocking twice - we eventually had to ring the owner up to let us in. The entrance... More

Hi Debs, We are very sorry to see your stay at Oakfold House was disappointing. On the day of arrival we became aware that our doorbell was not working. We took steps to fix this and so we are sorry for the inconvenience that this caused. With regards to the cleaning, Maxwell cleaned the rooms on Saturday morning. He knocked... More

A great little find. The owners were so helpful. The welcome e-mail with handy hints and tips was a nice touch and gave you reassurance that the booking was in place and that you were going to be looked after. Fully deserves the high rating on all the review sites

We were welcomed with a hot drink on our arrival. There was a good selection for breakfast and the room was very clean. Even though our room we felt was a little on the small side we still had a very enjoyable stay.

Oakfold House is such a lovely building, with so much character. Big front door entrance, welcoming hallway with lovely wooden flooring. Our hosts were amazing and friendly. They'd already sent me a few tips via email all week and were more than happy to help during our stay. Our room (number 2) was perfect. Comfortable king size bed, plenty of... More

Spent a night away there in Oct 16. A nice little bed and breakfast, helpful friendly owners and a good breakfast. Plenty to do locally, food, walks, shopping and attractions. I'd go again, can't say fairer than that.
