    Lovely place to stay in Windermere. Very accommodating. Breakfast was wonderful and very flexible. The strawberry preserves is delicious. The hosts provided a lot of information about the Lake District. Would stay here again if we are ever back in Windermere!

    Half way between the villages of Windermere and Bowness, this is a very convenient location. The room was rather small but comfortable. There is parking and breakfast, but no common areas such as a lounge. WiFi worked well.

    Thank you Roger, for reviewing your stay. It was a pleasure having you stay with us. We did once have a guest lounge, however, it so so rarely used. It's also great to hear the wifi was up to scratch ! Best wishes Jane
