“a home from home”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

A lovely stay with Philip and Mary, our very congenial hosts. They provided a warm, very friendly and homely atmosphere with all comforts. A perfect place for a brief respite or longer stay! The very generous breakfasts were especially well cooked by Philip.

Phil and Mary are lovely people and made us really welcome. They accommodated our every need, from collecting us at the station to giving us a coffee to send us on our way on the last day. It was great not having to worry about anything. The rooms were comfortable, breakfast was great and the recommendations for restaurants, pubs and even beers were all spot on. It was maybe a bit more than we would usually pay but I think that it was fair for Windermere and certainly good value for money. Thank you very much, we'll certainly be back.

Just spent a few days in Windermere at 1 Park Road celebrating two special birthdays. Warm welcome and great hospitality as always from Philip and Mary. Spacious rooms with lots of thoughtful extras such as White Company products, fluffy robes, a wide range of magazines, fresh coffee and the amazing Kendal Mint Cake!

Breakfast should not be missed- a substantial choice but the full English is highly recommended. There is also a good selection of fresh fruits, yoghurts and great home made jams. Enough to set you up for a day in the hills, a walk around the lake or relaxing in the local spa.

Altogether an exceptional weekend.

It is difficult to add to the reviews of previous guests of 1 Park Road. We to found Mary and Phillp most hospitable and welcoming. We were taken to our room on arrival, something most Guest Houses and hotels dont do, you are normally left to find your own way.
Breakfast was lovely and my husband loved the home made marmalade so much he bought some to bring home.
Its lovely to know there is a welcoming place to stay in the lakes for future visits

We have just returned from a three night stay here and would highly recommend it. Right from the clear personal communication before our arrival to the personal goodbye at check out. The rooms are quiet comfy and very well equipped. The breakfast was delicious, fresh and so much choice. Mary and Phillip so accommodating helpful friendly. While we stayed there were a family with a toddler and baby as well as another couple with a dog and the rooms are so quiet that we were never disturbed by any noise from other rooms during our stay.
It was easy and safe to park out side, there are lots of great places to eat nearby within just a few minutes walk. Would stay again and recommend to enyone.

This is the second time my wife and i have visited 1 Park Road and the standards of excellence have not changed . Both Philip and Mary are lovely hosts. The standard of accommodation is only matched with the very fine breakfasts. We especially liked the comfortable and informal lounge with its full array of books, maps and other tourist suggestions to enjoy with wonderful area of England. Our bedroom was well presented and complete with sofa, TV and of course en suite. This area of Windermere whilst very convenient to all the amenities is very quiet and seems a million miles from main tourist area. We will certainly go again.

My Fiancé and I stayed at 1 Park Road in mid August 2013 and can't provide enough praise on the service and hospitality that we received. The accommodation is very homely with everything you need from maps, books and information to make the most of your stay in the Lakes. The morning breakfasts had plenty to choose from and the menus were printed off daily showing that thought had gone into each meal. The full english is highly recommended!!!

During our short mid week visit to the Lakes my then girlfriend and I got engaged at the top of Scafell Pike. Mary and Phil assisted in making the occasion extra special by placing flowers and prosecco in our room.

We both highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast for a more personal touch to an unforgettable stay in Lake Windermere.
