“What a find!!”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

First holiday alone, did no research into places to say, picked only on price (tight budget you see).

Really friendly welcome from Teresa who after showing me to my room gave me advice on where to eat, how to get to the lake (both quickest route and best views).

Room was perfect, quiet, good size, clean. Bathroom was as described (shower was hard to work out but then I was at least half asleep when I went in!!!)

Breakfast was AMAZING especially as I'm not really a breakfast person.,
I'm coming back next year if all goes to plan and I'll be staying for longer than one night,

Stayed at the Bonny Brae guest house in Windermere for a long weekend. Nice little library with books and maps. Pleasant advise by Teresa. Great breakfast. Location excellent, close to station and busses to the lakes

Teresa and Ian made our stay so welcoming, gave hints on where to walk, one view fantastic, Orrest Head. Everything spotlessly clean, four poster comfortable bed, breakfast you can have as little or too much, parking no issue due to parking permits from hosts. although you don't need the car due to everything being close by. Try the Italian around the corner, brilliant, recommended by Teresa and Ian, we will certainty be back.

My boyfriend and I stayed at this wonderful guest house for our first walking break. Teresa and Ian were extremely warm and welcoming and made you feel completely relaxed and at home. Teresa was very thoughtful offering us use of her flask to make sure we would keep warm up in the mountains.

The room was everything we needed being right in the centre of town, the breakfast was delicious and the whole guesthouse was lovely and clean. Have already looked into booking to stay again and will definitely recommend to our friends and family.

Me and my girlfriend arrived after a long journey to be greeted by a very welcoming host, spotlessly clean rooms and comfy beds! Teresa & Ian make every effort to ensure your stay is as relaxing as it can be, and the breakfasts are amazing! Location wise its perfect, smack in the middle of windemere with plenty of parking, lots of local restaurants (particularly recommend Hooked) and lots of footpaths leading either to the lake or into the hills. All rooms are en-suite and to again kept to a brilliant standard. Thanks both for a memorable few days!

my husband & i stayed at the bonny brae on 28th of sept 2013 for our wedding anniversary,
it was a great stay, the guest house was very clean and tidy,
the room was large with en-suite & a four poster bed which was sooooooo comfy!!!!
And the new owners of the bonny brae teresa & ian were wonderfull hosts to us and really made us feel welcome.
ian cooks a great full english breakfast with all local butcher produce, and with very yummy black pudding!
we would recommend this guest house with out a doubt,its close to shops bars and food dining.
we visited a lovely italian just round the corner,but would pre book as it seemed really busy in all the restaurants.

We will be returning very soon !!

just want to say a big thankyou to teresa & ian for making it a special weekend.

Thankyou to the 'best waiter in town'. We had a fabulous weekend staying in Jess and Helens lovely guesthouse BB. Breakfast was lovely and filling and Jess was a brilliant waiter even though Helen sacked him haha. The rooms were lovely and I had a lovely comfy sleep in a lovely comfy bed. Would recomend highly to everyone visiting Windermere. We will certainly be back again and a big thankyou for making our weekend a lovely one. (19/04/2013 to 21/04/2013) Mandy
