Very nice room! We've never been there before and Max recommended where we can go for a walk and give us some maps, also mentioned some places to grab something to eat later. Both Marnie and him very polite and helpful. I would strongly recommend :)

Lovely accommodation, and good breakfast, with plenty of variety available. It is set in a quiet location but is ideal to walk into Bowness for all the shops and restaurants, and the lake. The B&B is run by a very friendly and helpful couple.

Lovely owners and great food, rooms were of good size and beds were comfy. Only very slight problem the fact that we couldn't book room with two single beds. Nice stay though, will definitely recommend!

Beautiful Victorian house tastefully decorated and retaining many original features. Spotlessly clean throughout. Our room was right at the top of the house but really comfortable. The breakfasts offered a good choice and were very tasty and fresh. Marine and Max were welcoming and seemed keen that their guests were comfortable and well looked after. We hope to return at...

A warm welcome to comfortable and very clean accommodation. A lovely cooked breakfast which could only have been improved by offering true Cumberland sausage. On site parking is available but a bit tight.
