“Perfect home from home.”
Reviewed 13 October 2009

We stayed in the Nook, the self catering cottage, for a week. The location is superb, halfway between Windermere and Bowness which means you are in walking distance to some superb shops, Pubs and Resturants. The cottage is beautifully decorated, very well appointed with everything you will need for your stay. Mick and Wendy are so lovely and helpful and always on hand with advice during your stay.
We will definetly be back.

The service was excellent and the greeting very friendly. The rooms were well equipped and furnished to a good standard. We had a four poster bed - the only problem was one of the posts slightly obstructed the view of the television!

The breakfast was excellent - we chose the full English breakfast, but the alternative of scrambled egg and smoked salmon was equally delicious. We stayed for two nights and went back to the same Italian restaurant they recommended which was about 10 minutes away. Lake Windermere is about a 15 minute walk.

Mick & Wendy are very welcoming & friendly people, always available should you need any help & make you feel at home. The rooms are excellent, spotlessly clean & very comfortable, with everything you need. The guest house is in a very quiet location, but an easy 10 minute stroll to either Windermere or Bowness, where there are plenty of pubs, cafes & restaurants. Be warned, don't eat too late at night as Wendy's breakfasts are gorgeous, plentiful & not to be missed! We managed to skip lunch we were fed so well! We had a lovely, relaxing stay & will most definately be back again!
