Richard and Paula's Kirkwood is a beautiful home tucked in between Windermere and Bowness (about a 15 minute walk from the Windermere station). They're wonderful hosts.. helpful when you need something at the same time letting you have your space. The breakfast was one of the highlights, wonderful home made food. Went with my husband just a few days back...

Kirkwood Guest House is a home from home. The location of the guest house is perfect, just a 10 minute walk into the centre of Windermere. The room was lovely and clean. The owners (Richard and Paula) are very welcoming and have a great knowledge of the area. The breakfast was great. I would definitely stay here again.
