We got this B&B from the internet, as an emergency alternative to the one we walked out of in Bowness. What a find. And it was cheaper!
Frances welcomed us warmly, and even moved her car along so we could park by the back door as it was raining and dark. She took us through the house from the back, and showed us the Windermere Room on the first floor. It was delightful; clean, with good quality bed linen, and comfortable beds (1 single & 1 double) a lovely bathroom with nice touches - hand wash, hand and body lotion, and shower gel.
Tea and coffee making facilities in the room had generous supplies. Even the cups were bone china.
There were two radiators in the bedroom, both fully adjustable, and there were 3 windows, as the room was on the front corner of the building, so the early morning sunshine was a pleasure to wake up to. The decor was frilly and homely, and spotlessly clean, and we loved it! And I don't recall seeing the list of rules that others have commented on. But they don't sound unreasonable, if they're still there.
Breakfast was served at 8:30, which was a good time, and there were cereals, followed by a full English complete with real cumberland sausage - a hearty start for a day's exploring!
It was only a minute's walk to the main street, where there are lots of cafes and restaurants catering for all tastes.
The service was wonderful and the whole expererience was a delight. It made our 3 day stay a memorable experience.
We would definitely go back, and have no hesitation in recommending it, although if you're not sure about Peter Rabbit, you may find the huge soft toy in the front window a bit strange! Just think of him as a local celebrity.
