“Perfect stay”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

Stayed there 3 nights, the room was comfortable, clean and home from home. Good breakfast, Sue and Dick are a wonderful couple very helpful, full of local knowledge and nothing is too much trouble. The location is ideal, only a few minutes from Windermere town centre with various eating places. Great base to explore the area, would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Room at the back was quiet.

Stayed here for five nights, in July.

The room was superb, everything you needed, from a fan in the room, to flannels in the bathroom, not many B&B's cover off everything. The room was also very clean, again, not something usually found in most B&B's.

Ivy Bank is on a little side street which is nice and quiet, and yet your just a two minute walk to Windermere town centre, and also ideally situated for a 15 minute stroll to Bowness. With a bus stop nearby too, this is an ideal location.

The breakfast's were brilliant, again, they have thought of everything.

Dick and Sue were superb hosts, very friendly and polite, and always happy to help guests with any questions they had about the area. One of the days we were there, they had a wedding to go to, and instead we were looked after by their daughter who has certainly inherited the wonderful nature and character of her parents.

If I go to Windermere again, there is only one place I'm staying.

Very pleasant stay with my family, great location just minutes from Windermere centre, but quiet and with good secure parking. Hosts did everything possible to help us and the breakfasts were great! First choice next time I visit Windermere!

Big thank you to Dick and Sue for a wonderful stay at their B & B.

So much thought was put into making my stay as comfortable as possible and they were brilliant in accommodating my dietary requiremnets. Particularly loved the Egyptian cotton bedding, made for a blissful night's sleep :-)

Have stayed at two other B & B's in this area before and this was by far the best!

Stayed at the lovely Ivy Bank B&B for 3 nights (Thurs/Fri/Sat 20-22 June 2013). Had a lovely welcome from Richard and Sue. The accommodation was first class, very comfortable and clean.
Plenty of choice for breakfast - nothing was too much trouble.

Very close to the town, within a few minutes walking distance.

Would certainly stay there again and can thoroughly recommend it.
