From previous reviews and the by the pictures on the website we thought we had found a lovely little gem in the Lake District however when we arrived our opinions had changed unfortunately for the worse. Not only did the owner take quite a while to answer the door but when he did he wasn't particularly well presented. Our first...

The reviewer seems to be under the impression that Guest House and B & B owners sit behind their front doors eagerly awaiting their guests' arrival. We are sorry to disappoint but in our case this is not true. We may be doing other things when the doorbell rings, we may even be using the bathroom, and therefore it may...

Stayed in 10 B&Bs on trip around Scotland and North of England. This was by far the worst. TV didn't (that didn't worry me), tiny room, no parking for car. Building need some money spent on it. I agree breakfast good and staff very friendly but breakfast too late at 8.30 start.

We recently spent 3 weeks in the UK and stayed at 8 different B&Bs. Luckily this was only a one night stay. This by far was the poorest choice. As mentioned in other reviews, the place not only needs updating, but also needs a good cleaning! We had an ensuite room on the top floor. The shower had a non-working...

We recently stayed at the Green Gables for one night bed and breakfast. We felt check-in was quite late at 4:00 particularly as check out is 10:00. We stayed in room 1 so are only able to base our review on this room and communal areas. The reception and bar areas would benefit from modernisation, these areas felt quite dated....

My sister and I stayed in room 7 on the very top floor of the house. It is a twin room with own bathroom on landing outside bedroom. House full of guests but upstairs no noise could be heard. Great stay with wonderful hostesses. Breakfast was huge and very tasty. Lots of laughter and a happy house. Will definitely come...

We stayed here as two couples and a single during Summer. We found it perfectly adequate and fairly priced, although the beds were not the most comfortable to sleep on and the rooms were quite "cosy". However, it was everything we were looking for and the breakfast was as good as anything you get at English B&Bs, so I would...

When we arrived at Green Gables, it was at first hard to raise the owner, who eventually arrived shouting "ok!ok! I'm coming". We were not sure if he was joking or not. Were eventually shown to our room, which looked as if it needed a makeover. Some bits of wallpaper peeling, furniture rickety. One of our hand towels had a...

We were looking forward to staying at this B and B after seeing all the excellent reviews on trip advisor. The main issues were with our room. The window was painted open so it did not close. Bearing in mind we were staying in October/November this was quite an issue! The bathroom door did not close, which was a particular...

The first problems we have with this review is the time delay between the stay and the review. This has resulted in the reviewer not remembering with any degree of accuracy whether they stayed in October or November. Nothing was reported at the time sa any problems that existed could be addressed. We plead guilty to painting our windows -...

This was another great find. We stumbled into Windermere with no booking and found one of the last rooms in the town. Brilliant find! Very comfortable room, separate exclusive bathroom on the top floor. It was a bit warm through the night but everything about this place was lovely. Our hosts were terrific very knowledgable. The breakfast was great.

From the numerous places my wife & I have "B&B'd", Green Gables is the one B&B we have returned to regularly over the past 7 years. If you are an "open personality" you will find the rapport with the staff as being second to none, from a friendly greeting to "we'll do whatever we can for you if it's a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
At Green Gables we have a very simple philosophy - clean, comfortable accommodation at a reasonable price. We do not provide all the latest gizmos and gadgetry. Nor do we provide "boutique" style toiletries or membership to gyms or spas. If you really want these then please ask at the time of booking and we will adjust the price accordingly. We do not have a long list of rules and regulations and you will find us more like a "home from home" than a stuffy and strict place to stay. ... more   less
