Oh, my. I have stayed at Kirkwood many times in the past and every time am never disappointed in the amazing comfort, graciousness, and terrific breakfasts. Maggs and Boyd always hit the mark with me and the folks I bring to Kirkwood.
You cannot beat the location which is far from the madding crowds of Windermere and yet close enough to walk into town and have a good meal. I have stayed in every room at Kirkwood over the years and have never been disappointed in the comfort offered. The beds are good, the appointments are lovely, there is everything in your room needed to have a pleasant stay, the place is spotlessly clean, and the breakfasts are creative with specials and good coffee. They even offer gluten free, vegan and vegetarian choices. The products such as sausages, bacon, eggs are well chosen from local quality vendors. This is a top notch place at a very reasonable price.
Boyd, who is from The Lake District knows so much about the area. He is so generous to print out maps and share his knowledge with guests.
It is clear that these gracious hosts want YOU to enjoy your stay in their beautiful home, inside and outside and I like that about Kirkwood Guest House. You can feel that you are really welcome there and they go to a lot of trouble to make that happen.More
