We’ve stayed a couple of times at Greystone Cottage and quite honestly, wouldn’t look for another B&B in Windermere unless Greystone was full. Janet is so friendly and welcoming, nothing is too much trouble and it is a real home from home feeling staying there. A little bag of Thorntons chocolates in the room is the icing on the cake!...

I had an excellent 3 night stay at greystone cottage between Christmas and new year. This is an excellent B&B with a superb host in Janet. I have never felt more welcome in a B&B from the moment I arrived. Janet was always happy to recommend places to eat and has a wealth of knowledge of the local area. The...

We return from Australia time and time again. Janet and Tony are more like family than hosts. Rooms are lovely and cosy, parking is easy and the villages within walking distance. We highly recommend Greystone cottage as the perfect getaway. Tell Janet we said hi!!!

My wife and I visited this fabulous B&B for the second time. We had a short break in early November and found it just as good as the 1st time last year. Hostess Janet was as charming and helpful as before. She ut us on to a lovely little pub round the corner from the B&B and told us about...

You could be forgiven for mistaking this charming B&B with that of the home of a favourite relative such is the warmth of the greeting you receive from Janet the proprietor. Boasting just 3 double rooms, this wonderfully individual property could hardly be better placed for Windermere and surrounding areas being barely a ten minute stroll from the bars, shops...

We always love every single minute we are there and always look forward to seeing Janet again! She is absolutely amazing, the loveliest person you could meet, so warm and welcoming, and Greystone Cottage is perfect in every way for...

Just spent our 3rd visit with Janet at Greystone Cottage, what is there left to say other than its the best. If you want to be made to feel welcome by a lovely lady running a warm, friendly and reasonably priced B&B then this is the place for you. The room we stayed in was immaculate and well provisioned with...

2nd time staying here. Stayed in the pink room last time so we thought we'd try the larger blue room this time. We weren't disappointed at all! There's not much more we can add this time that we didn't say in our previous review. Janet is an excellent hostess, very easy to get along with, and it was a pleasure...
