My partner and I booked our first ever weekend away together and not having been to the lake district I wasn't sure what to expect! After a 5 hour drive from West Sussex we were so tired - The staff at Laurel Cottage were so friendly and welcoming, the room was clean and warm, breakfast was cooked beautifully, absolutely nothing...

The breakfast was ok but the room wasn't upto much as it was very small and the window faced workmen working on a house. The toilet had to be flushed several times to flush but all in all it was OKit was very central to all the attractions and just s five minute walk to Windermere lake

Just had a 2 night stay at this lovely B&B. Free parking on site, which is a massive bonus as it's right in the middle of Bowness, and we even got help carrying our bags from the car. The room was immaculately clean and the owners/staff couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly. The full English breakfast was the best...

I stayed here for 2 nights in room 12 which was really lovely. From when we arrived we were welcomed by Steven who was just so pleasant and helpful. We were luckily enough to be in one of the rooms where we could have breakfast delivered. We ordered what we wanted and advised the time we wanted it to be...

After reading the retoric and reviews, and viewing images, I decided to book. We stayed for two nights. The hotel is very pleasant as are the family who own and run it. The breakfast is lovely. Some downfalls for us though is that I understood we would be staying in a 17th century building. In fact the adjoning wall to...

Well we have just returned back from our second visit to this lovely B&B. Once again we could not fault anything about our stay. This B&B is central to all local amenities and is surrounded by all the bars and restaurants. We had room 9 which was more than enough for us. Bathroom comprised of shower, w/c and basin and...

I absolutely cannot fault this place. Stayed here as a couple for two nights (16th-18th September) and it was perfect. We stayed in room 15 which was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. The bed was large and very comfortable and there were plenty of towels and storage space. Parking is a bit of a squeeze but there's plenty available round...
