I had read the reports about damp in some rooms, but also saw the replies that this had been sorted. We had a great week at Sandown, the house was roomy, comfortable and clean, great location as we could park all our cars and we all had our own bathrooms so that was great. Read the reviews about damp but...

Great location ! Lacked in cleanliness through out the house . Various rooms were damp in the building which caused some members of the group to be ill especially with children in the house . The kitchen needed addition or new facilities .

Visited with friends, very central location only 10 mins down to the lake. You can hear quite a bit of outside noise when in bed but it wasn't too much of a problem. The bedroom was not overly large but the bed was so comfy you did not want to get up.

A beautiful setting and a really friendly and helpful owner. The B&B is on the road leading between Bowness and Windemere. We went for a meal in Windermere and walked the distance in about 20 minutes, so a great location! There was plenty of parking, and the owner came straight to the door to welcome us, show us to our...
