Had a fantastic weekend in the Lakes. Accommodation was wonderful, Maxine & Graham are great hosts and their full English breakfast was outstanding already booked for next year. Hilary & Andrew Downes. P.S Andrew fell in love with Maxine's Cumberland sausage.

Best B&B by far in Bowness. Maxine & Graham are the most friendliest hosts we've ever met. Made our stay enjoyable and felt like we'd known them for years. Full English breakfast was cooked to our liking, the rooms are extremely clean and the beds are so comfy. It's the little touches that put this guest house right up there.......for...

As we arrived in Bowness i phoned the guest house and spoke to Graham who came and met us at the door to give us a pass and directions to the car park which is a very handy two minute walk away. When we checked in Maxine was there to give us the friendliest greeting. She showed us to the...

Right near the lake, shops, restaurants, ferry and everything you need but just far enough away from the front to be peaceful. Breakfast was a perfect English breakfast and you get some yummy homemade cake deposited in the room every day. Highly recommend staying here as a good base for exploring the lake district!

Hostess Maxine's warm and friendly greeting made us feel very welcome from the start and throughout our four days stay. We were in a very comfortable and clean room overlooking the lake equipped with all the usual amenities and more, fresh homemade cake each day, fresh white towels supplied and replaced on use and free wi-fi. Breakfast with a smile...

We absolutely enjoyed our Lake District visit and our Bay House lodging was a highlight. Clean, modern, quiet, close to both lake boat and ground transportation, it perfectly suited our needs. Maxine and Graham's love of the region shone through with their warm friendly welcome and attention to our first-time visitors needs. Their breakfast, all locally sourced, was equal to...

I would highly recommend this great little B & B. Maxine and Graham are the most warm, friendly hosts you could wish for. They were really welcoming from the minute we arrived and made us feel really at home. They show a genuine interest in their guests and nothing is too much trouble.

Just got back from a 3 night stay at the Bay House celebrating my 30th birthday with partner. The B&B is in a prime location, 2 minute walk to bowness centre while still quiet, parking permit provided which was a nice touch. The room (room 2) was lovely, clean and with a gorgeous view of the lake. Graham's breakfasts were...
