“Absolutely gorgeous B&B!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

We have just got back from a lovely anniversary weekend at Glenville House. It was our first time staying in a B&B and was surprised that it was nicer than most hotels I've stayed in! The room was very quiet, clean, beautifully furnished and the bed was huge and so comfy! It was all the personal touches that made the trip so special too. Homemade cakes and biscuits in the foyer and biscuits in the room were lovely, and Pete was such a welcoming, friendly host, and recommended some lovely pubs in the area. We would both love to come back (maybe when the weather is a bit nicer?!) and will also recommend Glenville House to all our friends.

Me and my partner just got back from an excellent 3 nights here for my 25th birthday. From the moment we walked in Peter greeted us in such a friendly manner and I had a lovely surprise of a card and some chocolates. Lovely clean rooms and the breakfast is amazing :) Jayne is a wonderful cook, thankyou for the brownies that you gave us for the journey home :) We will definitely be back to stay in the new year. Thanks Charlotte and Rich :)

What a fantastic choice of accommodation to celebrate my hubby's 50th. We were wowed by the standard of Glenville House, it is so beautiful. Our room is amazing with all the little extras which make it even more special. We arrived to a birthday card and chocolates just because I mentioned it was a birth day weekend. The food was delicious and catered well for my vegetarian requirements. Will definitely stay again on our next visit to the Lakes.

We stayed for 2 nights and wished we could of stayed longer.The bedroom was the best we have stayed in, breakfast was fantastic, and the homemade jams and biscuits were wonderful, jayne kindly gave me her recipe for the biscuits, which were put into our room each day. Jayne and Peter were lovely, always had a smile. We will hopefully be going back next september, if jayne and peter have any rooms left.
Thanks jayne and peter for such a wonderful stay.x

We spent 3 nights at Glenville House, a fantastic B&B. Comfortable, stylish room, excellent shower. Delicious breakfast and we loved the personal touches of homemade cakes in the entrance hall and homemade biscuits in the bedroom.
Friendly owner, helpful with things to do around the lakes.

We just had a weekend at Windermere and stayed at Glenville house for two nights. The hosts Jayne and Peter were very welcoming and friendly and had very good knowledge of the area and gave us tips on the places to eat out. Glenville house is very clean and cosy and really much better than some hotels we've stayed in. The breakfast was first class and the home baking and jams were fabulous and a nice gesture by the hosts. We'll definitely be back, thank you Jayne and peter !

Room Tip: All the rooms we saw were very well appointed.

Stayed here for three nights. Very welcoming and helpful. Clean and beautifully appointed room. En suite small but everything clean and workied well.Good shower. Comfortable bed. Excellent choice and quality for breakfast. Lovely touches ......cookies in room each day and home made cakes if you fancy a nibble before dinner. Plenty of choices to eat nearby. Well situated halfway between Bowness and Winderemere.

Room Tip: Only saw inside of one room but other customers all seemed happy.
