Had a lovely stay, helped I'm sure by the fabulous weather. Lickbarrow Lodge is a beautiful house, about a mile out of Windermere village. From the house, it's a 30 minute walk, downhill through amazing countryside, to Bowness and all the touristy things; near enough to access everything easily, but far enough away to let you feel like you're away from the hustle and bustle.
Mr and Mrs Legge are very warm and welcoming and made our stay with our 5 year old son and my parents very comfortable. Rooms were clean and homely, with en-suites. Breakfast was lovely - freshly cooked, with a good selection on offer.
To put it simply, we had a really lovely time!

We have just stayed 2 nights at this superbly renovated Arts & Crafts lodge, just 5 minutes drive from Windermere in the most beautiful countryside away from the hustle and bustle of the town. The studio apartment was very comfortable: a very comfy double bed, a good power shower and an Ikea kitchen hidden away in a cupboard, but with everything available if you wanted to cook a meal. The studio had french doors opening onto a patio, just the spot to enjoy a glass of wine after a busy day sightseeing. Highly recommended and we will certainly be returning.

Just relax, and stop your search now. This bed and breakfast is terrific.
My husband and I were a little ambivalent about The Lakes in March, but some friends were raving on about the warmth of the welcome, the beauty of the place etc etc, so off we went.
Lickbarrow Lodge is a beautifully restored and enhanced Arts and Crafts house nestled beside its own wooded acreage, and surrounded by a variety of hillsides with stunning views of the lake. All very walkable, and only half a mile up the hill from Windermere.
The interior of the Lodge is gorgeous, and our bedroom, bathroom and kitchenette, immaculate.
Elizabeth and Adrian Legge are excellent hosts, being unobtrusive, and readily available for friendly chat and information.
They totally enjoy having guests and love to chat to a wide variety of people, exchanging travel tales from across the world. We had great chat with Elizabeth over one of her famous breakfasts served in the library (!) In fact such a good time we were having, we were nearly sorry that the heavy cloud cover cleared, to enable us to set off on a guided walk. Adrian is a qualified guide and first aider with an encyclopaedic knowledge of the area, and a most charming walking companion. The following days, armed maps and books from the Library, we trundled our own way around the area, finding lovely pubs with great food, and always happy to return to the Lodge.
Elizabeth is very entertaining and an expert in food and interior design, so lots of conversation. We found the company great, and feel we have made some new friends. Most of their guests are returnees, unsurprisingly.
As for the woods? Totally peaceful and relaxing, with the odd rustle of leaves, and tweet of bird.....and then there was us........

We had a week stay at Lickbarrow Lodge in the B&B room which had its own entrance hall . It was beautifully furnished. Spotlessly clean,spacious & had everything we needed. The shower was brilliant with overhead,massage jets & hand held spray.The shower room & bedroom had underfloor heating which we were able to control ourselves & there was a heated towel rail in the large bathroom which we could also control. If it was very cold there were extra bedcovers available & also an electric heater in the bedroom. Breakfast was taken in the Library at our leisure which was more than adequate to start the day. Liz & Adrian were most welcoming & we soon felt the benefit of their hospitalty. It was a delightful Art Deco style lodge house with a very interesting history. The area was very quiet & it was lovely to have a peaceful nights sleep. We could see across to the Langdales from our room-that was when it was clear enough !!!! It really didn't matter that the weather wasn't too good,it was still an excellent holiday & a best place to stay. we will visit again as soon as we can. We have been visiting Cumbria & particularly Windermere for the past 38 years & we think this was the best place we have stayed. It was excellent value..

Stayed: September 2008

We stayed in the studio apartment at Lickbarrow Lodge, the other room being a double B&B room. We used the self catering option and so had access to a tiny, cupboard contained, kitchen area. This was small but had everything we needed and you could quite easily cook a meal if you needed to.
the double bed was comfortable, not sagging or ultra firm as a lot of B&B beds seem to be. The decor was lovely and everything was very clean. The shower was powerful and I could have stood under it for hours!
The small enclosed yard was right in the sun on an afternoon and was pleasant to sit out in.
The price asked by the owners is very reasonable for the facilities provided and worked out cheaper than you'd pay for a noisy B&B further into the town. You really need a car though as it's well out of Windermere.
I'd certainly stay there again and I'm quite picky!
