Just returned from yet another wonderful stay at Lake View ( yes we are repeat offenders). As usual we had a great stay ,stuffed full of the huge breakfast that you can't get elsewhere.
The stay was also excellant value for money as they are now offering 3 nights for the price of 2.This offer extends right through until March so well worth it.
Thanks again for a lovely break

Room Tip: Only have 4 rooms have stayed in the all and all are excellant

We started our visit by getting lost in Bowness (not easy to do), but after a phone call, Manny waited at the door for us and carried our bags from the car up the stairs which was appreciated. Both Manny and Dave were very friendly and have been to Australia several times so knew where we came from. They are delightful men and Manny is a great cook. The rooms are spacious and very well appointed and the position is as good as you could want. Would recomment to any travellers to the Lake District. Lake Windemere is beautiful and the cruises on the lake are lovely.

I stayed here the night before my wedding and was very pleased with the choice.

The room we had was huge and there was plenty of room for us to have a mini hen-party in it the night before the wedding.

Dave and Manny who run the B&B are very friendly and great hosts. The rates were really reasonable for August and the others in our party who stayed for more nights had nothing bad to say.

Breakfasts were hearty from what I could see, though I could only manage toast!

Perfectly located in Bowness, just off the busy road through the town.

Thanks for a great stay.

We have been to Bowness a few times but this is our first time staying at Lake View. We were on a four night Honeymoon break and were made to feel ever so welcome by our wonderful hosts Dave and Manny. There are only four rooms and I believe all of them are very spacious. As stated previously the little kitchenette with fridge, freezer and microwave was such a bonus. Our bathroom had an amazing view onto Lake Windermere.

The location is perfect, private carpark a short walk away and numerous pubs and eateries within very easy reach. The breakfasts were fab all freshly cooked to order and the perfect start to the day. Dave and Manny were kind enough to share a bottle of Cava with us one evening before we ventured out and their hospitality was perfect. They are really nice guys. Beds were made every day on our return and fresh milk in the fridge.

We will definately be staying here every time we visit and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone who wants to visit Bowness. xx

This guest house is one of the few places in Windermere which caters for families. Our room comfortably accomodated 2 adults and 3 children with ample space for the luggage we were carrying. The children always came back to the room ready to eat the biscuits which are provided daily. appreciated the jar of milk which we found every day in the refrigerator. We had an armchair near a bay window overlooking the street and it was my favourite spot to enjoy a cup of tea/coffee when we came back from our sightseeing. We had ensuite bathroom with electric shower so hot water was never a problem. There is also a proper hair dryer in the room.

Guest house has reserved parking space for guests which was a blessing.

Location is very close to the promenade in Windermere - with a lot of shops and restaurants all around. The 'World of Beatrix Potter' attraction is only a few minutes walk from the Guest house. There is a Tesco Express within walking distance too.

For breakfast, apart from the typical English breakfast, they also offer a Vegetarian option which is also good, and there is also a selection of cereals and juices along with tea/coffee and hot chocolate, toast and jams.

Dave and Manny are excellent hosts and made our stay very enjoyable - they even gave us driving directions for an easy route to the Airport.

At the end of our stay we felt that we were leaving a friend's house not just a guest house!

Would definitely go back next time I visit the Lake district
