My daughter and I would like to thank Bea for a great service she and her husband provided for us while we stayed there. It is a very pleasant and quiet place where we easily could walk to the lakeside. The room was great, no problems at all and the breakfast was really scrummy. We had an amazing time in Windermere and hope to be back again. Fir Tree has a very good location just in the middle between the train station to lakeside. And also about 10 minutes walk to Portter's Attactions. All in all the guest house was perfect. I would recommend staying at this guest house. Thank you again for making our trip so enjoyable.

Warm and friendly service in an impeccably clean establishment. We had a very beautiful room. Good location with easily accessible public transport if required.

My family and I have just returned home from England. Having stayed at Fir Trees Guest House I felt I had to write a review to let other prospective others thinking of taking their vacation in Windermere it seems Fir Trees is most definitely the place to stay. We got there quite late but that was no problem as we were greeted with a friendly smile and were escorted to the family room. Great room very spacious: which was very suitable as we have two kids. Beds really comfortable, superbly decorated with apt colors. Cleanliness of the room and shower room were perfect. If I had to have to have one down side it would be the shower room is a little on the small side, but obviously as my husband said as it is a Victorian building there's nothing they can do about that! Lots of good reading materials from books in the houses bookcase to information for us tourists on where to go (although the proprietors are always on hand to give sound advice). Have to mention little Kurt still misses the cute dog they have in the yard! Breakfast very tasty all cooked to order and piping hot. To round up a fantastic stay in a beautiful English Guest House. My husband and I are both lecturers and we love to go to England this time of year. As always I did my homework and got some previous reviews on Fir Trees really good to know that so many others agree I do think it helps for those planning their next vacation. Can't understand how another guest who stayed around the same time doesn't agree! Just read their review and its almost as if we are talking about a different place! We are planning our next trip back!!

We stayed in this lovely B&B for a weekend and found it excellent. The host were lovely and very accommodating, the rooms we were in was very clean and rooms were cleaned daily something I really did not expect in a B&B. The beds were so so comfortable and cosy that it was difficult to get out of, able to walk to main town and felt like home away from home.

It is a place where many visitors have been through and that is reflected by the customer service received. Breakfast nothing much to speak off comparedto other B&Bs, room to the street can be noisy, cleanliness average - sorry just average!

My wife and I stayed a Fir Trees two night (and, sadly, one very rainy day). On the main streeet (not noisy or heavily traveled) between Bowness and central Winderemere (about 12-13 minutes' walk to Bowness --and many restaurant choices -- a little less to Windermere). Our room was spacious and even had a small sitting area. The bathroom for this particular room was quite small (even one person needed to navigate carefully!) and had a "precision-sized" shower stall. Everything was immaculately clean.
Bea and Bob are superb hosts. It's a business, of course; but they seem to genuinely enjoy their guests and are concerned that they enjoy their time in the Lakes. At breakfast (lovingly prepared by Bob), you don't have that "business-like" feeling that you get a some B&B's -- it's really more like you're a guest at a friend's house, and they really want to please you. No hesitations -- Fir Trees is a great choice in Winderemere / Bowness.

We couldn't have chosen a better place for our stay. The location is excellent, in waking distance to Windermere and Bowness. It's situated on a main but quite road.and parking facilities was excellent for us as we were on a trike, safe and secure. A beautiful house, very welcoming. The house and room was very clean, nicely decorated and well appointed with all you could need for your stay. The bedroom had a seperate area to sit , read, watch tv or have a coffee which we liked. The owners were extremely friendly and pleasant. The Lake District and Fir Trees was fabulous and we can't wait to return.

Room Tip: Contact the Firs direct.
