        Can not recommend enough”

        Me and my girlfriend stayed for 2 nights. First off the rooms are immaculate and well thought out. You need for nothing whilst in your room. We was in room 3 with a four poster bed and it was so comfortable after a long day walking we was both asleep by ten. The hosts are just incredible. So welcoming and knowledgeable. They both will help in any way they can whether its directions, walking routes, restaurant recommendations. Just both so approachable and friendly. Finally they went out and bought ingredients to provide me with my choice of vegan breakfast both mornings brought to our room and WOW vegan waffles with syrup and fruit. Best service I have had staying anywhere. Thank you and I hope to visit again. Genna Smith

We had a lovely experience and can not wait to return, Thank you Richard and Paula for a lovely time!

The room was very clean and the location of the guest house is only a 10 min walk either way to Windermere or Bowness on Windermere.
