Montfort Cottage Guest House
Ranked #29 of 107 Windermere B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 June 2014

Great accomodation, breakfasts and hosts. Ideally located within walking distance between Windermere & Bowness, Montfort Cottage offers great ensuite accomodation. Paul & Sue's breakfasts offer great choice, from full English to Muffins with scrambled eggs and smoked salmon, just mouthwateringly delicious! Paul & Sue are great hosts who helped with suggestions of places to visit. Will definitely visit again.

Loved our time at Montfort, we stayed 4 nights in the Windermere Room on the 3rd floor the room was decorated lovely with en-suite bathroom and had the most comfy bed I have ever slept on! Every morning Paul and Sue would cook a brilliant breakfast making sure everything is perfect for you and if you need any advise on the area and places to visit they will be more than happy to let you know.
Loved everything about the place, cant wait to go back!

My partner and I stayed at the Montfort Cottage Guest House for 2-nights during the Easter break. We were greeted on arrival by Sue, who helped us to our room. The room was located on the top floor of the accommodation, with tea, coffee, hot chocolate available and also Kendal mint cake, which was a nice touch. There are plenty of breakfast options and the ordering slip (completed the night before) is an ideal way of tailoring your choices for the next morning. We went for the ‘Full English’, and it didn’t disappoint. The Guest House is ideally situated between Windermere and Bowness (10 minutes walk, or 15+ minutes after a few). Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we have recommended this Guest House to our friends. Thank you Sue & Paul.

Room Tip: Book direct with the Guest House.

We stayed here for 2 nights on 30.05.14 and we were extremely pleased with our choice. The B & B is great value for money. Sue and Paul are great host and make you feel very welcome from the moment you arrive. The rooms are perfect for what you need and are very clean and tidy. The breakfasts are fab and are cooked to your own choice. It is in a great location just 10mins walk from Windermere and 15mins walk from Bowerness.

Great stay and hopefully we'll be back, if we can get the grandparents to baby-sit! :)

Brilliant value for money. Montfort cottage was faultless and Paul and Sue are lovely hosts. Our room was stylishly decorated and the hospitality tray was well stocked including kendal mint cake and bottled water. Breakfast was great and set us up for the day. The location was perfect, only a short stroll to the shore to catch the boat. We highly recommend Montfort and can't wait to return.

Room Tip: Book direct for the best deal.

Amazing place; but I must say that the hosts are the icing on the cake. Very hospitable and accommodating. Had a great 5 days at the cottage, with the room in the attic being spacious yet cozy at once. Great decor, great breakfast, and perfect location sandwiched in between the lake and the station. Definitely recommend this place to everyone and anyone!
