By far the best B&B we've ever stayed in. Wonderful host made us feel very welcome. The whole place is very tastefully decorated. The breakfast was excellent. What more can we say other than we will definitely returning when the weather is a bit brighter.

I stayed at Holly Lodge with my three children over the xmas period whilst visiting friends. The guest house itself is excellent and very easy to find. It is tucked away in a quiet location with great easy access to the high street and main shops. The reception is warm and welcoming and it just has a really nice feel...

This guest house is more 'boutique hotel' than B&B. Lovely quality design touches, and along with an excellent sleep and great shower pressures it is worth noting the excellent WiFi signal, as we were travelling with children, so this is not always a given in 'the lakes'. Perfect location moments walk from the town but set back so still lovely...

Stayed for 1 night in a premium double with my partner and 5 month old son. Greeted by Bonnie on arrival with a smile and was able to check in early... perfect to feed the little one before we headed out for the day! Free parking too! I love quaint, characterful properties rather than generic hotels so this was a...

This guest house was perfect for our family weekend away. The family room was clean,comfortable and warm. The owners were especially friendly and welcoming. Their knowledge and guidance of the area ensured we got the most out of our short break. Our breakfast was the best, with plenty of choice. It kept us going until tea time. The guest house...

Very welcoming and cheerful hosts, we drove a long way to get there and we weren't disappointed - with the guest house or lake Windermere. The room was well presented, very clean and really comfortable. The breakfast and service in the morning was the best and we will definitely return. This is my first review on trip advisor because I...

I was happy enough with my choice of B&B whilst on a brief overnight stay in the Lakes District. Windermere is a great choice when looking to see the area in a short time. Warmly welcomed by name on my early arrival, found my room to be clean and tidy, providing the basic essentials, the house is old but quaint,...

Hi, thank you very much for the positive review :-) I am really sorry that you did not find your bed comfortable, could you let me know somehow which room you stayed in so we can get this replaced? I think you were room 1. Also sorry about our luggage storage, the reason we charge is because often we have...
