We stayed at this B&B as a one-night stop off whilst travelling north. Judy who runs Lingwood couldn't have been more helpful from the word go - she was willing to take a one night booking and her confirmation by email was very prompt. The Lodge is a short walk from the jetty for the ferry boats (good in summer), and it isn't too far to walk into Bowness/Windermere for the restaurants/shops. The car parking is free and up a private driveway, and was easy for a small car. The rooms are very clean, functional, and well kept - they look recently decorated. Being winter we were pleased to find the room temperature was cosy. The hospitality tray was really thoughtful - herbal teas (hurrah!) as well as the normal caffeine loaded tea, coffee, chocolate - plus bottles of water (amazingly missing from the trays of other B&Bs we have visited before), with biscuits and even mini Kendal Mint Cakes - all of good quality/branded varieties. Judy was very friendly and helpful when we arrived and we were pleased to find we had no stairs to climb so carrying our luggage into the building was very simple as our room was on the ground level. The room was quiet and we had a good nights sleep. The Breakfast Room was a short stroll across the corridor - with both a well stocked breakfast bar to help yourself from (the fruit salad was full of flavour and colour) and a cooked breakfast order taken at your table. I had let Judy know ahead of our arrival that I am vegetarian and wheat free so there was gluten free toast and sausages available. We can't fault the service or the welcome - we would certainly stay again.
