Tucked away on a corner of a junction on the way in to Windermere/Ambleside just a couple of minutes walk from the Marina and maybe 10 from the town, we were relying on GPS but were glad our heads can swivel well or we might have missed it :-) The house is definitely what I would call quaint, narrow staircases...

Many thanks for taking time to write such a comprehensive review of your stay in our home in our Tudor king-size four poster en-suite. It was really good to know that you felt relaxed and were happy with our service and breakfast choices and content. The house is, as you say of a past era, built in 1896 and full...

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...

Our room was quiet and comfortable, great shower. Shirley and Vince very helpful regarding what to do, where to eat and the history of the building and area. Easy parking. Breakfast was really good.

Would make this our first choice every time. Close to the lake, walks and easy access to the shops. The staff helped us to get our bearings. Breakfast was amazing, quality local produce. The room was plush and the powers shower was fabulous.

We found Storrs Gate House to be very welcoming, efficiently run, friendly and clean. Breakfasts were tasty and plentiful. Our room was a little quirky, but the bed was very comfortable and the room had a good sized an suite. Parking space was a little tight, care needed when manoeuvering. Nice garden area with a variety of seating areas.

What a beautiful guest house. Thank you to Shirley and Vince for making our stay comfortable and enjoyable. There's nothing I would change about Storr's Gate House. They have pretty much thought of everything one might need to enjoy their stay.

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...
