I booked this weekend for myself and my partner in June 14 as a Living Social deal. The B&B was lovely however as I had spent a lot of money buying into a 5* break I thought that there could have been finer detail made to the stay. The rose petals were not real, there was white wine in the room on arrival (a choice would have been nice, or even a nice wine) and the room was very small (The Lowthwaite), not at all like the picture appeared on the website. It was also directly at the end of the hall at reception, through the wall from the laundry and next door to a public toilet! We could hear straight through the door into the hall. Probably better to request another room before you book. These are, however, personal opinions and overall the stay was okay. The B&B was lovely and clean. We enjoyed a meal on the first night and the local area was on the doorstep. A two minute walk to the right of the B&B leads you to the village with small pubs and some restaurants. A 10-15 minute walk to the left takes you to Bowness-on-Windermere, This was a lovely, touristy, and quaint area with quirky shops and an array of eateries for a variety of appetites. I think next time I would opt for a hotel closer to Bowness-on-Windermere,
