My mum and I visited for the weekend and we weren’t disappointed, with lovely friendly hosts who cooked up the most delicious breakfast and the guest house is in the perfect location! Not to mention the world’s comfiest bed! Lovely and clean too, just wish we could’ve stayed longer. Kayaking or paddle boarding on lake Windamere is a MUST too!

Well, where do i start? For my birthday this year we was looking for somewhere quiet, somewhere to feel at home but still away from reality and a good breakfast! I can tell you now we got just that! We stayed in the Grasmere room from 17th - 19th August. The room was absolutely spotless and a lot more spacious than what i expected. If anyone is worrying about hotels and complying with COVID-19 regulations this is not a place you need to have worry about, there is sanitizer everywhere and distance is kept and the whole place is so clean, but Paul and Jane still have enough contact with you to make you feel at home. They are some of the loveliest hosts i have ever had experience with! I still cannot get over how good the breakfasts were 5* quality - my boyfriend had only one complaint, no black pudding! Haha. Thank You again Paul & Jane for a lovely stay, I cant say enough lovely things about them and their guest house, i could go on forever! Leah & Adam x
