“Lovely B&B in a great location”
We both really enjoyed our stay at the B&B, from the moment we turned up to the moment we left we were looked after by Adrian who has a great knowledge of the area and can suggest things to do if your stuck. I'd say it was the first place we stayed where they had a dog, which as a dog lover I enjoyed fussing Hampshire whenever I saw him.
The only thing I could say would of been better is if the room was bigger as me and partner didn't have much room. If staying for a night would be fine, but longer stays I'd ideally say you need one of the other rooms they have on offer.
Would I stay here again if visiting Windermere? the answer is yes for the money you can't go wrong and he does a cracking full English breakfast in the morning :)

Thank you for your kind comments, We agree that room 1 is small however, ideal for an overnight stay or a weekend when you do not bring too much luggage with you
This beautiful, traditional Lakeland stone cottage overlooks the Lake and is set in a traditional wooded area that has a stream and waterfall in the lovely gardens. Yet it is less than 10 minutes level stroll to the restaurants and pubs of Bowness town centre. The 3 ensuite rooms are tastefully decorated and wonderfully cosy. Each ensuite features a shower. The rooms have TV, radio-alarms, hair-dryers and drink-making facilities. We provide towels, tea, coffee, fruit teas and chocolate. You may borrow a brolly or a torch to help you home in the dark. We can suggest places to visit and lend you detailed local maps to help you find them.
The garden has plenty of seats so you can enjoy sitting in the sun, by the stream for a lazy read. We use local produce for our yummy full English breakfasts, which we cook to order.
To help keep the peaceful nature of our cottage for other guests we do not accept children under 10. We do not have a family room and we do not accept pets.
Children welcome from age 10.

From M6 jct 36 follow the white on brown tourist signs for The Beatrix Potter Attraction.
If coming from the North leave the M6 at jct 40 and take the A66 for Keswick. Then turn off onto the A592 to Windermere at the first roundabout and follow the road alongside Ullswater and over the Kirkstone Pass. We are on the A592 just outside Bowness.
