We have just returned from the Lake District after our first visit to the area. We chose Green Gables because of it's good value and favourable reviews, it certainly didn't disappoint. Carole, Alex and Gilly were very friendly and welcoming. The breakfasts were cooked to order and were delicious. Our room on the first floor was very comfortable, as was my Mum's single room on the ground floor. A big thank you to you all for our lovely five night stay.

I stayed here for just one night during a 2 day getaway to the Lake District. The staff were very friendly and the rooms were clean, very comfy and cozy. I really enjoyed the enormous breakfast you get and enjoyed talking with the staff before I left for home on the second day.

The guesthouse is within walking distance to some very nice restaurants and offers lots of TV channels and free WIFI.

Thoroughly enjoyed my very brief visit here and would highly recommend to anyone.

Lovely place to stay if you are in Windemere. It was cute, quaint, and absolutely perfect location for what we wanted to do. About 10-15 minute walk from the railway station and 1.5 (20-30) minute walk from the lake (Bowness). We had come off the Brit Movie tours about Beatrix Potter and adored the walk into town for dinner. They were very accommodating with our early departure and let us have a bit of cereal, toast, and coffee. I have to rave about the muesli combination they had :)

Our room had its own sink and telly. Everything was clean and crisp and quite homey. Just darling and highly recommended.

Small, friendly guest house, very good location and tasty breakfast with a good vegetarian alternative.We were told to be down before nine for breakfast and checkout is 10.00 which seems a little early. The late check in time of 4.00 pm was a bit of an inconvenience and our room, although clean and tidy, could have benefited from a coat of paint and some fresh furniture to modernise and brighten it up.On the whole though the friendly staff and excellent location make up for it and prices are very reasonable for an ensuite in the Lakes in high season.

Our stay at Green Gables Guest House was very comfortable and relaxing. Very warm welcome by Carol on arrival. She is very nice & helpful lady who make our stay very much enjoyable. The guest house is only 10 minutes walk from Windermere Rail station and 25 minutes pleasant walk to the lake side. You can find plenty of shops and restaurants around the guest house. There is also a bus stop at Broad street, (where the Guest house is situated) so it is easy for the bus pass holders to reach the guest house in comfort. All I can say that Green Gables Guest House is a good choice to stay at Windermere due to its cleanness, hospitality, comfort, Wifi, and for the wonderful breakfast. Thanks Carol, would like to come again.

We stayed at Green Gables last week for two nights and must say we had a fabulous time. The guest house is run by Carol and Alex who are very friendly and welcoming people and make you feel at home. Our room and en suite bathroom were spotlessly clean. towels and bedding were new and bright white.

Breakfast was superb, cooked fresh and with quality ingredients, it set us up for the day of walking ahead. We chatted to the lovely staff and other guests and felt very comfortable.

We will certainly stay again and will recommend to family and friends.Thank you to all at Green Gables from Carol and Pete.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
At Green Gables we have a very simple philosophy - clean, comfortable accommodation at a reasonable price. We do not provide all the latest gizmos and gadgetry. Nor do we provide "boutique" style toiletries or membership to gyms or spas. If you really want these then please ask at the time of booking and we will adjust the price accordingly. We do not have a long list of rules and regulations and you will find us more like a "home from home" than a stuffy and strict place to stay. ... more   less
