“A bit of sunshine on a wet break”
Reviewed 6 November 2012

My wife and I have just had a wonderful 4 day break in the lakes, thanks to Jason and Lui. Laurel cottage is a beautiful B&B with a warm and freindly welcome and superb breakfasts that set you up for the day whatever the weather. We had a nice sized room in the actual cottage form which you get a great view of the hills overlooking windermere. the bed was comfortable and also the room boasted a great shower. My only gripe would be due to no double glazing the room is subject to road noise. This said I would thoroughly recommend this lovely B&B to anyone thinking of a stay in the lakes.

This was our third visit to Laurel Cottage B&B and yet again we received an excellent service, great breakfast and lovely room. Location is great and parking is a bonus. Lots to do in Bowness and on Lake Windermere with lots of lovely bars and restaurants all very nearby. We will be visiting again for sure. Tip: Book direct for the best deals.

Room Tip: Book direct for best rates

Laurel House is a lovely, central and well appointed old cottage hotel which has been extended some time ago. It's size is very deceptive from outside but it has around 10 or 11 rooms. Ours had an ensuite, was not too big, but very comfortable, perfectly adequate and really well decorated. The owners are really welcoming and the breakfast is truly phenominal....the Breakfast Award is well deserved. In the breakfast room there are some very old photos of Laurel Cottage about which we raised a few questions with the owners....especially about the girl with the white circle. There is an interestng story about Room 3 too!! I can definitely recommend Laurel Cottage for it's friendly owners, for it's perfect position and for it's wonderfully coooked breakfast.

Room Tip: I can also recommend Hyltons Restaurant for a super evening meal which just round the corner from La...

Having been to Bowness many times over about 20 years we can't understand how we have missed this little gem. Lovely room and well looked after by Jason and staff. The breakfast ranks with the best we have had in the Lakes. Needless to say we will return
probably tme and time again.

Room Tip: ring before and discuss your preferences

Two of us stayed in a twin room upstairs, in the extended part that used to be a bank. The smallish room (with very small bathroom) was very clean and comfortable. Plenty of teabags, biscuits and coffee were supplied. The staff are friendly and willing, and the breakfast is excellent, with lots of choice. Situated in the centre of Bowness is good, but also slightly unfortunate. There is no double glazing, and the street noise level is high, particularly since our room was above a busy Tapas bar. Prices are generally high in The Lake District (for everything) and we've stayed in B&B's (Cotswolds, in July) just as good but much cheaper. Two minor quibbles: the TV remote control had the back missing, making it difficult swatching channels (temporarily fixed after complaining), and the bathroom door jammed (it should have been planed long ago.)

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the original (old schoolhouse) building.

We stopped here over August bank holiday weekend for three nights. The cottage wasceay to find and had free car parking facilities nearby. The car park was only 5 mins away, not a problem at all. What more an you expect when you are located so fantastically right in the centre of everything. The car was parked when we arrived and was left till we were leaving as everything was on our doorstep.
We stopped in room 12, a four poster room which had breakfast served in the room. I had the fruit compote and yogurt each morning...highly recommended, as was the cooked breakfast which my husband enjoyed.
All the staff we very friendly and helpful recommending where to eat.
Thank you for a lovely relaxing break. We will be back when we visit the lakes again.

Room Tip: A four poster room where you get breakfast served in your room. We stopped in room 12.
