“"fantastic!"”
Reviewed 23 May 2012

We stayed at Ravenscroft for a few days and had a great time, everything was superb. As stated in other reviews the room was excellent, great breakfasts, lovely location only a few minutes walk to either Windermere village or Bowness and the lake, and last but not least Jackie and Steve are brilliant, friendly hosts. We would love to go back sometime in the future and would recommend Ravenscroft to anyone.

We stayed at Ravenscroft after reading the other reviews and it certainly lived up to its reputation. Jackie and Steve are lovely, friendly people who make you feel very welcome. We stayed in the superior room, with the seating area and it was fantastic. Jackie's breakfasts are superb with an excellent choice and plentiful, we didn't need much for lunch!
I would highly recommend Ravenscroft and we will certainly return in the future.

Yet another great stay this year for my birthday long weekend. Jackie is a great host, and her rooms are fab, and as for the breakfast, where does she get that bacon, omg, it's sooo delicious! The superior room has a lovely sitting area where it is nice to curl up on the sofa and watch TV when you get back from dining at one of the lovely restaurants in town. A real homely atmosphere and walking distance to both Bowness and Windermere. We'll be back

Room Tip: All rooms beautiful but the superior room is bigger with a sofa in the sitting area for watching the...

We stayed at Ravenscroft in the Superior Room in between Christmas and the New Year and had a fantastic time!

The room is very spacious and clean and the en-suite is also spacious.

Jackie is very welcoming and friendly and cooks a lovely breakfast. Breakfast is served in the lounge in front of a lovely fire.

Ravenscroft is situated about 5 minutes walk from Windermere and 10 minutes walk from Bowness so is in an ideal location!

Would we stay here again? Definitely!

Room Tip: For a special treat the Superior Room is perfect - very spacious with a sofa area!

Reviewed 27 November 2011

I have stayed in many guesthouses up and down the country but this one was by far the best , Jackie and Steve made us feel at home the minute we walked through the door . It instantly feels like a home , warm and very inviting , particularly the pot of tea and biscuits on arrival in front of a roaring fire !!! The two bedrooms we had were amazing with everything you needed and more ! Lovely bathroom and very comfortable beds . We also visited Jackie and Steves Deli in Bowness and stocked up on some wonderful goodies , ( highly recomend a visit ) We will certainly be going back as it really was hard to leave this fantastic place , If you are in the area you will not find a better place to stay or a bigger breakfast . Thanks so much to you both
