We stayed here for 2 nights over New Year's Eve and New Year's Day, as we fancied a festive dose of the glorious Lakes. Our aim was to stay somewhere stylish, clean and homely and we were not remotely disappointed by Ivythwaite Lodge!

We were greeted by Wendy (who was friendly and efficient) and showed to our room which was lovely. Great comfy bed, nicely styled overall and with a giant spa bath to die for! Can't honestly think of anything we were lacking, ok the tv isn't huge but come on, if you're in the Lakes to watch a big TV for hours then you need your head examining...I usually try to balance things a little by offering a minor negative or two, but I can't honestly think of one.

After a slightly boozy NYE around the handily-located saloons & watering holes of Windermere and Bowness, we were revitalised by a hearty fresh-cooked breakfast in the morning, served to us by 'Mad' Mick (Not our nickname, ask the local taxi drivers!) who was really warm and interested in his guests. Being from his neck of the woods in Lancashire meant that we had things in common, which is always nice when staying somewhere.

The house is spotlessly clean and really nicely furnished, a pleasure to be in really. Easy parking right outside, plus the house is in a great spot just 5 mins walk from the centre of Windermere, reasonably priced, what more could you ask?

Overall you get a real sense that Mick & Wendy actually enjoy having guests stay and genuinely are interested in you, which as we all know is not the case everywhere. Nothing worse than being made to feel like just another faceless customer and this couldn't be further from the case here, I'm glad to report.

We had a cracking time overall and definitely plan to return. If you prefer warm, welcoming & highly comfortable Guest Houses to bland, generic hotels then you just simply cannot go wrong here.

Just back from a 2 night stay in 'The Nook' apartment. What a piece of heaven. Spotlessly clean, quiet, fully equipped with everything you could need, warm and comfortable.
Fabulous location inbetween Windermere and Bowness so we left the car alone and enjoyed being able to get everywhere on foot.
Thanks to Mick and Wendy for their attention to detail and their warm welcome. We will be back.

Room Tip: The nook has a full kitchen

We spent a long weekend in the Nook. It's absolutely spot-on and the owners are genuinely nice people. It's clean, tidy, well equipped and in a nice quiet location halfway between Bowness and Windermere. We loved it and will be staying here again.

We stayed the weekend here at Ivythwaite Lodge. The house is between Windermere town and lake Windermere and set back in a side road.It is so peaceful and quiet with no background noise. The breakfasts were superb and the whole place is beautifully decorated and feels authentic to the 1890s era of the house. Many thanks to Wendy and Mick and we cannot wait to return

Just returned from a long weekend here, Wendy & Mick were great hosts who served up fantastic breakfast that set you up for the day. The guest house was lovely and clean,set well back from the main road and within easy walking distance for Bowness or Windermere.
