“Lovely stay in a welcoming b&b”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

This was a lovely b and b, the people who owned it were very welcoming, provided great advice and gave the cheapest prices we found. All the little details were attended to and no request was to big or small. The room itself was beautiful. This was luxury at a small price and we will definitely be retuning in the summer.

Stayed at the Sandown with my family in Aug 2011. My family and I took all the rooms and basically had the place to ourselves. The owners were so welcoming and really helpful. The rooms were comfortable, clean and modern. Breakfast was a treat as the owners put all the tables together and we ate as a family together, nothing was too much trouble. The location is just right, just a very small walk down to lake Windermere and car arking was also provided at no extra cost. Overall, great value for money, good location with trusted, helpful owners.

Room Tip: All the rooms are the same apart from the single room

Thank you for your kind words. We really enjoyed meeting you all and it was our pleasure to try to make your stay as comfortable as we could. It was such an emotional occasion for you all but one which we hope brought back wonderful memories of your Grandad. We hope to see you maybe this year - for a reunion!

Very welcoming, friendly, knowledgeable & helpful couple who run this B&B. Newly refurbished....the bedrooms/en-suite, dining and sitting area are outstanding. Very modern, clean, comfortable and spacious. The cooked breakfast was delicious. Good, private parking facilities on the doorstep. Only a 5 min walk to the nearest shops, banks, bars, lakeside yet very quiet. The views around are outstanding!

Great value for money!

A definate must for anyone visiting Windermere. Can't wait for our next visit :-)

Booked this B&B after looking at loads of differnet B&B's in and around Bowness.
Emailed the owners with my requirements for my parents, nothing was to much trouble.

Mum and Dad both had a very enjoyable stay at Sandowns, the breakfast was brill, rooms nicely decorated, clean and comfortable. The owners were very very helpful to mum and dad over their stay. They hope to come back soon.
Thank you from Cornwall.

Room Tip: Just speak to the owners with your requests

We would strongly recommend this B & B. When we arrived it was in a great location and the owners had great local knowledge. We had checked it out on the web site before booking and found that it more than matched our expectations. Our room was immaculate and the bed was very very comfortable. The breakfast was excellent and our stay was a very relaxing experience. We will definatley return
