Stayed for two nights and just got home today. The ladies who run the Meadowcrof are lovely, friendly, helpful and approachable. The hotel is beautiful; our room was a good size and nicely furnished....the shower was amazing!! Breakfast was tasty with lots of choice and very well organised! Highly recommended, we had a relaxing stay in a lovely atmosphere and would stay again without hesitation! Carrie & Ian Hyland

We decided to stay at Meadowcroft (family with young children) for a weekend holiday in the lake district. The location of the hotel was excellent, just a few miles from the main attractions close to Lake Windermere. Previous reviews mentioned the proximity of the guest house to the main road, but I saw this as an advantage. Our hosts (Rosemary and Linda) gave us a warm welcome. The rooms were very clean, and the shower was excellent. The breakfast was also a delight, and was served between 8.15 to 8.45. Just remember that this is a small, family run guest house and not a hotel. Overall the family had an excellent experience and I would certainly recommend this place to friends, and would look forward to staying there again.

Just got back from 4 nights' stay at Meadowcroft. As a full time wheelchair user, a fully accessible property and a bedroom with a wet-room is such a find! Great to find hosts who understand the needs and issues of the wheelchair guest! But it would be just as lovely for able-bodied guests as well. Add to that superb breakfasts, cooked fresh as you arrive in the dining room, and wonderful hospitality and you have an excellent place to stay. It's close enough to Windermere to drive there for dinner if you want to...though The Watermill Inn 100 yards from the front door is very welcoming and does excellent food - and beer!

We will definitely be back next time we visit The Lake District, and I will be recommending it to friends (wheelchair users or otherwise!).

The stay at this place was great. Homely B'fast with great options.
Rosemary and Linda are great hosts and perfect in hospitality. Bit far from Windermere..not suitable if someone wants to stay close the Windermere lake.

Wonderful guest house with a wonderful owner. The room was very comfortable and had everything you could possibly need. The breakfast was the best I have had in a B&B in a long time. Rosemary was a wonderful host and was very welcoming. The location is lovely and is very close to a local pub who brew their own beer and have a welcoming atmosphere. Windermere is only a short few minutes drive away. Had such a lovely time and will certainly be going back as soon as possible!

When you are travelling and you stumble on a B&B like Meadowcroft, you just do not want to leave. Rosemary & Linda just get it! From the warm welcome to the clean & tastefully furnished rooms with double glazing, to the generous breakfast and friendly banter, one could be mistaken for thinking they were Aussies. Well, Linda has lived in Queensland for some time, so that probably helps!! She has brought the sunshine with her and Rosemary adds her special character to this excellent property. Highly recommended with the bonus of a great little pub down the road.
