“Excellent Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

Lovely welcome from Caroline when we arrived. Room was nice and clean and bed very comfy. Breakfast was excellent especially for me being a veggie, was full for the day. Caroline is very friendly and knows the area well. Lovely spot to stay close to shops and good restaurants. Will stay again.

We stayed here for three nights in July, in the annexe room 6. I loved it. The room was a good size and nice and private with it being an annexe. Good shower, TV, kettle and tea/coffee machines, and the wine glasses were a nice and useful touch.

Caroline, the owner, was very friendly and welcoming, and the hosts cook a fabulous English breakfast.

We spend most of our time in Bowness, about a 20 walk away, which was perfect as we ate so much over the course of our time there.

I'd definitely return and stay at the White Rose, and recommend wholeheartedly to others too.

A very good breakfast with excellent coffee and compact bedrooms that were fine. A welcoming host willing to offer advice and friendly chat. There's free on street parking outside the B&B and it's only a couple of minutes from the Windermere shops and cafes.

Myself and my boyfriend have just returned from a couple of nights stay at the white rose. From the moment we arrived Caroline was very nice and welcoming, helped us up to our room and then returned with all kinds of info about the area, trips etc. We stayed in room 1 which was a bit on the small size but nice and cozy and was big enough for 2. It was equipped with everything you needed for a short break..tea and coffee making facilities, soap and shower gel with nice fluffy towels. The room was also spotless. Breakfast consisted of choice of cereal followed by a full English and was lovely! The location of the guest house really couldn't be better. Was about a 2 minute walk from Windermere town and a 15-20 min walk to lake Windermere. I would definitely recommend the white rose to anyone visiting the lake district and wouldn't think twice about booking to come here again myself.

While travelling back home we stopped here for one night. The owner is very friendly and hepful. Bedroom was to the front and very comfortable with a small ensuite shower room attached. Breakfast was full English and was well cooked. Parking, at present, is free on the road outside and the location is ideal for walking to either Windermere or Bowness (a good half hour to the Lake) So no complaints to note and can recomend.

Room Tip: Room at front seemed the best option
