We stayed at Holmlea for 4 nights and we found it a very clean, comfortable place to stay. The discounts we got for the Spa at McDonalds Hotel and the boat trips on Lake Windermere were an added bonus!. The choice of breakfasts on offer were very good and the owners were very accommodating with our individual requests. The only two (small) downsides were that 1: We weren't allowed to take evening meals back to the guest house (but considering it was a B&B that isn't really a very unacceptable request on their part) and
2: The on-suite in our room was a little on the 'snug' side. But as i'm 6ft 3 that may have something to do with it! lol.
But on the whole they are very small niggles. The guest house is in an ideal location for the town, lake and walks and we wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to friends who may be considering a trip up there.
Thankyou to the owners for a very pleasurable stay.
