Reviewed 28 May 2012

Very attentive and friendly host and hostess. Place was very accomodating to us and our dog, clean throughout and a very nice place, very close to Lake as described in the advert and plenty of walks in the near vicinity. Has own car park, which is very good in a place where parking is at a premium. The breakfast was absolutely excellent. All in all a great place, would highly recomend this for B and B.

We stayed at Virginia Cottage after our wedding weekend in the Lake District and this was a perfect place to go afterwards. Helen and David and the other staff were so friendly and could not do enough for us, they made us feel so welcome.

The room we had was lovely and was a perfect size for the two of us and was of really quality.

We had stayed here before, and loved it then, we even recommened here to our family and friends who were guests at our wedding and they said how lovely it was.

It was lovely and relaxing...

The place is situated on kendal road which is in a great location right in the centre of bowness . The rooms aee quite small but ideal for what we needed which was a base for our 2 night stay . The rooms were spotless and the owners couldnt do enough for us . We also had a great breakfast .

A warm welcome, comfortable rooms, attentive hosts, fine breakfasts and a superb location in the heart of Bowness on Windermere, make this Bed and Breakfast Guest House a great choice for a short break or longer stay. The option to use the spa facilities at a nearby hotel help to set this B and B apart from many of the other options in town.
Helen and David deserve every success in their business and we shall certainly recommend them to our friends and acquaintances.

Room Tip: Room 6 is a large room with separate sitting room

We stayed in room 5...

Pros
-Good breakfast
-Friendly hosts (expect some breakfast conversation)
-Centrally located
-Clean room
-The pool and gym is a five minute walk away but very good

Cons
-Shower and toilet were in separate cupboards
-Shower did smell a bit stale and most of the multi-jet features didn't work
-Fridge was too loud to leave on

I don't stay in hotels as compared to B&B's so having to specify your arrival time and what you wanted for breakfast the night before was new to me.
