We stayed at woodlands last weekend as a last minute attempt to avoid another night on our wet and windy boat and were very glad we did. Lovely big room, well equipped bathroom and friendly staff. Will be heading there again soon!

Being a biker you look for somewhere that is secure for your bike, and also good value for money My bike was put behind the gate out of sight, for security reasons, even though the main car park is massive for a Windermere Guest House - an extra bonus for sure, which of course you have to pay extra for...

My husband rang and booked this for a one night stay as a surprise for my 40th birthday. Upon arrival we were lucky to get the last parking bay and checked in at reception.

This was mine and my partners first weekend away together and we have booked back there every year since. This is lovely boutique hotel where they can not do enough for you.
