The host must have spent a lot of time getting everything just right, there was such attention to detail. The bed was comfortable, the bedding so clean and the towels so...

Had a fantastic stay at Glenville House the room was lovely with treats of home made biscuits and sherry which is a lovely touch. Breakfast was excellent and the hosts made us feel very welcome. Would definitely recommend this B&B which is in a good location for both Windermere and Bowness.

We chose to say there based on the reviews (only one review below four stars and this was due to a hot water issue). We were not disappointed. The beds were comfy, the breakfast superb and ideally located within 10 mins walk of both Windemere and Bowness.
