We stayed two nights on Valentines weekend and were made to feel at ease from the moment we arrived by the owner Georgeene.
The room was clean and modern with ample storage space.
Ideally situated just a 15 minute walk up to Windermere or a few minutes walk down to the lake. All rooms were ground floor which was a bonus. Car parking within the Sandown grounds was another.
The cooked breakfast was delicious with a wide selection for both myself and my vegetarian girlfriend.
We can't recommend this place highly enough. *****

I stayed one night on the 12th January with my mother for a little break. The room was lovely and the people were very friendly and helpful, telling us about the best restaurants, bars and things to do. The guest house was in an Ideal location for Bowness, the lake and Windermere. It had loads of information leaflets to hand which was very helpful for ferry times etc. It was great value for money and I would defiantly stay again.

We stayed here just for one night on 8th Jan, room was beautiful, modern and clean. We were greeted by Georgeene who was lovely and spent time recommending the best places to eat that evening and how to find them. Cooked breakfast in the morning was excellent! Would definitely stay here again, Lisa and George.

When we arrived we were greeted by Georgeene who was very welcoming and showed us to our room. She explained where to go in Bowness and especially about where to eat, which helped us alot as we had not been to the area before. The breakfast was served at a good time not too early and not too late and it definately set us up for the day as we had planned to go walking. Mark gave us some great information about the boat trips to either Lakeside or Ambleside which was a great day out, and we felt when we got back that we could just relax especially as we came back to a clean room that had been cleaned whilst we had been out. When were leaving Mark came to say bye which felt as though it had that final personal touch. We loved our first time to the Lakes which was made even better by Georgeene and Mark, we will be back! Amy and Dan.

The single bedroom I used was well-appointed and welcoming. So were the hosts - definitely out to oblige. Sandown is well situated for Windermere's restaurants, its rail station and Bowness, the larger community down the hill, with a convenience store open till late. All are about five minutes'walk. Sandown's breakfast was just right.
