Had to place a note on TripAdvisor the second we returned home. Me and my husband never really get the time to go away on a weekend so this had to be perfect. We booked the attic room, and at first we were a bit reluctant because some attic rooms can have very restricted head room....God werent we wrong. Pay the extra and have this room.... You get a massive ornate bed, lovely solid wood furniture - Nothing from MFI....lots of space....,,,,thick luxury carpet and 5 Velux roof windows with black out blinds if you like a nice sleep in. The bath was massive and can even get 2 people in it. The only thing that i would say is.... "the photo's on the web for this room dont justify it....its a million times betta" Sorry Wendy and Mick but thought you might want to know this constructive comment. Anyway moving on....Bowness is the place to eat and drink and Windermere is a little flat. The walk to Bowness from Ivythwaite is ten mins max and only £2.50 in a taxi. You will find all places for everyone......Wine Bars, olde world pubs.....lots of places to eat for all budgets. Day trips - We went to Ambleside on the boat which took 35mins each way and cost £8.00 return per person. You can go for the day and decide whenever you want to return. We went and spent 3 hours walking and checking the olde world pubs and quaint shops, what a lovely place. Next day we went to Kendal for the day on the train, but we went on a Sunday and it was dead,but still managed to have a good look round and enjoyed it......Dont ponder about deciding on where to stay because you might just find that Ivythwaite is booked up and you will miss a real GEM.....
