This is our second visit to the Holly-wood. It is a delightful B&B with nice rooms and in a great quiet location but only a stones throw to the centre of Windermere. The owners are very friendly and chatty at breakfast. A real home from home, you get the personal touch we feel very relaxed here and love the breakfast....

Comfy B&B centrally situated. 5 minute walk to shops and restaurants and 20 minute downhill walk to the Lake, although bus stop handy. Spotless rooms, good breakfast with choice of cereals, juice, pastry and cooked breakfast choice. Friendly, helpful hosts.

Spot on guest house in a quiet yet good location. Excellent breakfast and welcoming and informative hosts. The perfect place to start and end a day in the stunning Lake District area. Bowness and the lake is just a 20 minutes walk and I recommend an easy stroll to the near Orrest Head where you can experience a spectacular view...

Just arrived home after a 2 night stay with my husband. What a lovely and welcoming guest house this is. Rooms have everything you can possibly need to enjoy your stay and are spotlessly clean. Breakfast is freshly cooked and plentiful. Yana and Ian are perfect hosts and very knowledgeable about the area. I cannot wait to visit again.

When we arrived for our first trip to the Lakes we were met by the ever happy Ian who welcomed us like we were old friends. Ian proceeded to show us around the guest house explaining everything so well that we didn't have to ask any questions as he had covered everything from car parking to how the extractor fan...
