As a person living and working at a B & B myself i decided last minute to just escape for a night. I booked Green Gables and within an hour i was there. Was warmly welcomed by Alex and shown to a very comfortable room. Breakfast the following morning was extremely good and it was so nice for me to be waited on for a change. The girls are fantastic, so much so that i booked a second night and my second room was ready in no time. Carol is a fab owner and the girls are a credit to her. I didn't want to leave my home from home but unfortunately had to but, i did leave having made new friends!! Thank you all so much girls :)

Stopped at this lovely bed and breakfast on new years eve, we are a young couple and our friends were staying in Bowness. Very glad that we chose to stay at the Green Gables, beautiful 1800's House with several bedrooms all ensuite, beautiful coving and original features throughout. Very very warm welcome from the owners and the room was perfect for what we needed - Location was great right in the centre of windermere. The lovely owner even offered to take us down into Bowness when our taxi didn't turn up.
Fantadtic cooked breakfast in the dining room in the morning.
Couldn't have asked for more, will definitely be returning in the future!!

Thankyou very much!!!

Room Tip: We had one of the top rooms - number 5.

We stayed here for 2 nights recently. The B and B is in a good location with locals pubs, restaurants and shops just a couple of minutes walk away. Check in was at 4pm but we used the morning to go down to the lake leaving and have a walk around.
We stayed in room one which had an en-suite. It was a lovely sized, the bed was comfortable and they were drink making facilities readily available which were refreshed the next day. The shower was fine with shower gel provided. The room was well heated with a radiator that you can control yourself.
Breakfast was provided both morning by the very lovely Gillian, cereal, toast, juice and a full cooked English breakfast. We were greeted straight away by Gillian who was extremely friendly and chatted away to us.
When we left the owner Alex offered us advice on where to go for a nice drive and gave directions whenever we needed them. He also offered us advice on where to eat in the evenings which we were grateful for as we hadn't been to the area before.
We enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it and would go back in the future.

Room Tip: I would go for one of the en-suite rooms as the bathrooms are across the landing with the other room...

Stayed one night to attend a wedding in the lakes. Greeted by the owners who were very friendly, checked us in and showed us to our room. Nice room with an ensuite, very comfy bed! Very close to the local shops and cafes and managed a short wander around before we went to our wedding. Very good location. Breakfast in the morning was delicious. It was served by a couple of girls who were chatty and attentive. Good big breakfast was just what we needed and even got another round of toast. Will be returning to spend a little bit longer in the area hopefully.

Room Tip: Room 3 was lovely and big with an ensuite

A strange welcome from the hosts, we were very tired from a long journey and many of the sarcastic comments were lost on us.

There are many rooms without en-suite although they are allocated a shower room for just their room and is generally opposite the room, we were thankful to have been given an en-suite room. The room was lovely, although small but we were only staying for one night so this wasn't much of an issue. Shower was a let down, not at all powerful! Cramped built in shower space which although there were shelves to put products on they could not hold any weight and would just fall off. However, a built in shower wash pump was in the shower, but i prefer my own things. Bed was comfy, had a lovely nights sleep!

We stayed in October and were looking forward to a lovely warm room, we didn't think it would be like a sauna! Strange to have heating on full when the windows were open, poor environment!! Turned heating off as soon as we got there but rest of b and b was still too hot!

The breakfast was lovely, great attentive staff however, i wasn't informed what was on the breakfast was just asked if i was ready for it... the only negative was the tables being allocated by room number. I was staying with my boyfriend and we were put on a table of four.. another room turned up and was seated next to us, we found this very awkward and odd, not what i expected or wanted! It did feel a bit of a rush with only a half hour gap (8.30 til 9) for breakfast, it was Sunday morning and we would of preferred a lie in.

Check in isn't until 4pm which is rather late, and check out is 10am! Although we never realised this and were not told to leave early or charged extra when we checked out at midday so unsure how strict this is.

The b and b is in a good location for the lake and there are many restaurants and a few bars nearby. We knew we had to pay for parking however, the times you can pay for are bizarre, there was no 24 hour stay so we ended up paying for 3 days when only staying 18 ish hours! However i don't think this is anything to do with the b and b as it is a public car park.

Overall, an good stay, let down by table share at breakfast and heat of b and b (we were told that the landlady had a bad review about the place being too cold so is now paranoid of this, which is why it is so hot...)

Room Tip: We stayed in room 5, it overlooks peoples roofs and back gardens however we did have en-suite and ma...

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
