An absolutely wonderful place to stay. Nothing negative at all. If there were 10 stars I would definitely give it. You can just pack ur clothes and go. A lovely roomy bedroom and en-suite shower room with an amazingly good shower. There is nothing that Shirley hasn't thought of. Everything you need is there plus a most beautifully cooked breakfast...

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 23 January 2017

Stayed 2 nights in the Tudor Room. Perfect size for us, cozy, luxurious and warm, as were the owners, who did not seem to tire of our questions. The property was just outside the hustle and bustle of Bowness but within easy reach by car, taxi or even walking (a 10/15 walk into town). The breakfast room was delightful and...

Hosts are very welcoming and breakfast was lovely. We stayed in the attic room which was a bit cramped especially as my partner is 6ft. In the bedroom the carpet was stained. The bathroom including the toilet was fitted with carpet which we felt was unhygienic especially in a guest house and the shower had mould in it.
