“A Windermere Wonder!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

This B & B run by Tilly and Phil with support from Peter and Emma was a real gem. The genuine friendliness of the owners and staff made our stay a memorable one! Our room was clean and comfortable and the breakfasts were first class. The home is very conveniently located for walking into town and using as a base for discovering the Lakes District.
Our hosts could not have been kinder and we feel we have made new friends. Should we return to the Lakes, we would hope to be able to stay in this delightful B & B again.

Stayed for one night only, Phil made us feel very welcome. Our room, which was #4 was brilliant, great size, good shower and nice and light. The brekkie was amazballs. Only a ten minute walk down to Bowness. We ate at the Bar & Grill, great food, just be aware of waiting time when busy.
Definitely recomend a stay at Beckmead.

From the booking process to leaving Beckmead House was a pleasureable experience.
Welcoming, efficient, clean and value for money is so rare these days but Beckmead House gives it all.
I would definitely stay there again when visiting Windermere.

My partner and I visited here last weekend for part of my 40th Birthday celebrations. I have stayed at this guest house many times from the ages of 6 to 11 years old with my parents when it was originally owned by Dorothy, a very warm friendly lady. This place has very fond memories for me.

The standards have not changed since Tilly and Phil took over who are both extremely friendly and approachable and very knowledgeable about the area.

The guest house itself is centrally based within walking distance of Bowness and the lake front. Rooms are comfortable and warm, (we had an en-suite at the top of the house, Room 4), with beverage facilities, hairdryer etc, and a lovely touch of an electric blanket (it is February in the Lake District!).

Breakfast offered was a fantastic choice, something for everyone, all piping hot and cooked with local produce, I have stayed in many hotels and B&Bs around the world and this breakfast is delicious, and one of the best.....especially for taste.

This place is very popular and in 'its own humble way', the best around the Windermere area.
I suggest you visit this memorable guest house, as I will not be leaving it as long next time for a visit and a mooch around the Lakeland areas.

P.S a special thank you to Tilly and Phil for the lovely message and bottle of wine left in our room for my celebrations - very thoughtful.

My husband and I booked a stay at the Ellerbrook for a night in January 2014. We received a welcoming email in advance which was a lovely touch.
Upon our arrival the owners offered us a room in their guest house next door - Beckmead House - as the room we had booked was not ensure and instead had a private bathroom. We chose to go into Beckmead for an ensuite room.
The room itself was small and the ensuite had clearly been added but it was really pleasant. It was clean and tidy with complimentary toiletries and lots of small nice touches. The tv had a DVD player.
The guest houses themselves were both smart and really pleasant.
The area is lovely with on street parking right outside. It is a 10 minute walk into the town centre where there are plenty of nice pubs and restaurants.
The breakfasts were wonderful. There was a good choice of food and it was delicious. The owners were lovely and couldn't do enough.
We would not hesitate in visiting again, it was excellent value and we highly recommend.

My short 2 night stay at Beckmead was very pleasant. Room was warm, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very nice. Owners were very friendly and welcoming. Location is very good, only a short walk into Windermere and 10-15 minute walk down to Bowness. No problems with parking on the road just outside. No hesitation recommending this B&B and would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Room 1 is warm and cosy, although there is some noise from the nearby brook which can be noticeable...

We had the triple room in the attic part of the house; it had a double and single bed. A pleasant, bright and attractive room and very cosy. En-suite shower room was small but spotless with a great power shower. The whole room was spotless and a good size for the two of us. Breakfast was very good with a good choice of cooked and cold options. The service during breakfast was excellent and it was no trouble for them to cater for my vegetarian and gluten free diet and there was no shortage of tea and coffee. The owners were very welcoming and had a good knowledge of the local area and things to do; they recommended some great walks. location is excellent for both Windermere and Bowness. We will definitely be re-visiting!
