    Glencree is backed by woodland and overlooks a pretty brook. The guest house lies within an easy 10-minute walk of the famous lake Windermere. The ground floor has a large guest lounge with colour TV, a newly-built, walk-through dining room and a double bedroom for guests who have difficulty with stairs. The delightful, individually designed bedrooms are all centrally heated, have en suite shower rooms, tea/coffee making facilities, hair dryers, toiletries and remote control TV.

    May we remind guests that Glencree is exclusively a non-smoking establishment. Delicious, traditional English breakfasts are prepared from high quality local produce. Vegetarian meals can be arranged and any special dietary needs can be catered for. And, for those special occasions, champagne and flowers can be organised prior to your arrival. Being a family-run concern, we are able to offer a personal service to make sure that your stay with us is comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

    There are numerous things to do around Glencree and the resident proprietor will be happy to offer advice on attractions and walks on offer. We are also pleased to offer advice and make reservations with the many excellent restaurants in the area. The ideal place for a welcome break from your daily routine. Free Wi-Fi access.
