Parking very limited. Orange juice in jug at breakfast seemed to be measured to one glass per guest. Biscuits in room out of date. Nice view from room at top of house. Staff polite and helpful. Good location for shops and restaurants

Thanks for staying with us and providing feedback. I am somewhat baffled by your comment about the orange juice. It is a self service buffet area and as you correctly point out the orange is in a large jug??

Stayed two nights. B&B is good for the price - rooms were will appointed and clean. Breakfast was small-sih - but very tasty. Limited tight parking available as a bonus and great central location. Few bits you could point out in the bathroom like small tear in the netted curtain, stained ceiling through water damage in the corner and peeled...

We stayed here for 2 nights and did not find a fault. The room was so clean bright and comfortable with tea and coffee available. The staff were friendly too. We had a great view of the town and the lake and would definitely stay here again if we came back for the night. Thank you so much

We stay here every Easter and have done for the last 6 years. We would not stay anywhere else as the people and place are brilliant. We would highly recommend it to all. It is clean, comfortable and nothing is too much trouble for Danny and the staff.

We were attracted by the great price at £81 with breakfast and the great reviews. The response by the owner to negative reviews on tripadviser was hilarious, we...

I recently booked 3 nights at the Oakbank for our anniversary. We wanted to stay at the lakes but I'd never been or driven so far so it was an entirely new experience! We settled on the Oakbank because of the location, the good reviews and on-site parking. Also there was a generous 3 nights for the price of 2...

My girlfriend booked this B&B for my birthday last year, only a few days beforehand. We requested a lake view room which was politely fulfilled, the window was shoulder height when standing and looked out over sections of Lake Windermere & the local town. We had the morning breakfast, quality of food was excellent, usual selection, pleasant & professional service...

We came upon Oakbank House, when we arrived in Windermere. Preferring to wing it, we hadn't pre booked and felt lucky to be given a lovely, clean, comfy room for our overnight stay. Brekkie the next morning was generous and yummy and set us up for our morning to explore Windermere. If we get the chance to return, Oakbank House...
