Greystone Cottage B&B
Ranked #36 of 107 Windermere B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 March 2013

We have just returned from our yearly visit to this 'home from home' . I can only reiterate what we have said before, it really is an absolute pleasure to stay at Greystone cottage. As soon as we set off from home I start to feel relaxed and chilled thinking about not only the beautiful scenery and walks on your doorstep but also the warm welcome we always get from Janet the owner . Janet really does make you feel at home and is a mine of local information, nothing at all is too much trouble for her. The bedrooms are large and I always have the best nights sleep in the large and soooooooooooo comfortable beds and the en suite bathrooms are luxurious.The breakfasts are enormous and set you up for the day and the room and B&B as a whole is spotlessly clean. On those occasions when the weather was not the best we had no qualms in staying our the room for a couple of hours reading.
We absolutely love staying at Greystone cottage and wouldn't contemplate going anywhere else, so much so that we have decided to visit twice this year and have booked our next visit when we will be taking our son and his new wife! I am sure that after this introduction to Greystone cottage Janet will have another couple of regulars on her books :-)
Looking forward to May
Stuart and Annette

Very nice room with lots of space, comfortable bed and faultless en-suite. Great breakfast with plenty of choice. Extremely friendly and welcoming host, very helpful with local knowledge. Great location with good parking. Will return.

We have stayed at Greystone Cottage now on a number of occasions over the years and always very much enjoy the break. The cottage is in a quiet area with good parking and yet very convenient for Windermere centre. It has a warm and welcoming feel, with very spacious, comfortable and well equipped rooms. The en-suite has a large power shower with plenty of hot water, which is much appreciated after having being dragged across the hilltops in all weathers. Janet is so cheerful, friendly and helpful, you feel so very welcome and she does a cracking breakfast too, much appreciated by my husband. She makes you feel more like a friend coming for a visit rather than a guest in her home, which is really nice. We would definately recommend Greystone Cottage.

Just returned from a long weekend at Greystone and I was so sad to have to leave! We chose to stay there based on the wonderful reviews we read beforehand and they didn't disappoint. The cottage is devine with a very homely feel and atmosphere- I disagree with the comments that there is too much bric-a-brac I think it all adds to the overall feel of the place, and the stairs certainly do not present a fire hazard at all!

The bedroom we stayed in was spacious, with plenty of storage with THE MOST COMFORTABLE BED EVER, it was a mission getting up and out of it every morning. Brilliant en-suite bathroom with large double shower-perfect!

Janet is an absolutely first class hostess, so friendly and welcoming with a wealth of knowledge of the lakes which helps you to plan your day trips. Her breakfasts are very tasty and fill you up for the entire morning. Can't fault Janet whatsoever, she certainly seems to love welcoming people into her lovely home which is apparent from the number of people who return year after year. I know we will certainly be hoping to return in the future and will be recommending her to all our friends and family.

Thanks Janet for a lovely, lovely, lovely weekend!

wow what a wonderful birthday treat to stay in a beautiful like this! From the moment you arrived to the moment you left Janet enthused enthusiasm and made us feel so welcome. Everything from the room - we had the green one - to the gorgeous breakfast was just perfect. Nothing was any trouble for this lady and knowledge of the area made our time in Windermere amazing. We will definately be returning again.

My partner viewed this on this site and read some great reviews about this fab b&b.so we went ahead and booked right away,and boy we weren't dissapointed.when we arrived Janet made us feel so very welcome the moment we arrived.she chatted away as if she'd known us for years and right away we knew we had made a fantastic choice.our room was the blue room and it was so spacious and very clean.the breakfasts in the morning were excellent made a great start to our morning the next day as we were going on an all day hillwalk in the fells.the bed was very comfortable and we both had a brill sleep after our walk.the shower was one of the best we've ever came across in any b&b.i would recommend anyone to stay here Janet's house is a home from home.the b&b is well located for all activities for a day in Windermere or for a boat trip from bowness,I would highly recommend you go on a tour with lakeside mini bus tours as we had a fantastic day out and they pick you up and drop you off right to your b&b will definately be booking with Janet can't wait to go back.

Greystone Cottage is by far the best B&B we have stayed in.Just got back today after a wonderful 2 night stay.The only part of our stay better than the value,the location, the most comfortable bed and the best cooked breakfast we have had on our travels was your host Janet. Nothing was too much trouble for her.As previously reviewed she has great knowledge, great warmth and a great cook.As you can tell it is so easy to highly recommend here to all we know. Just so lucky to have found here and gladly recommend here to you all. All the best Debbie and Les, will be back soon
