This was the third time we had stayed at Above the Bay. We visited with friends and had two double rooms, overlooking the Lake and with patio doors leading out onto a lovely patio area. The rooms are clean, breakfast provided by Trevor and Clair set us up for the day and to return late afternoon and sit out on...

We stayed over for one night & we are going to stay again, We found Bowness a nice place to stay over & there was plenty to see & do, the boat trips are worth a go. At night time we ate at the "Ship Inn" nice meal & dogs are welcome. The B&B is very clean & well maintained...

We have tried to stay at "Above the Bay" before, but it seems to get booked up very quickly. We were lucky this weekend and had a lovely time. The double room we had overlooked the lake and had a big bathroom, it was decorated to a high standard and was spotlessly clean as was the rest of the place....

I chose Above The Bay for my first visit to the Lake District because it is in a great location, it's reasonably priced and it is dog friendly. The owners, Trevor and Claire were lovely and had no problem with us bringing our Jack Russell with us as long as we agreed not to leave him in the room alone,...

We cannot comment on the stay because the owner gave our room away before we got there!! We booked through the tourist office who phoned and told them we were coming. We arrived in less than 30 minutes and they gave our room away! This is an act of absolute inpatience and greed and I urge others to stay away...
