Upon our arrival the location was found to be ideal, central to Windermere and Bowness, both 15min walk. Parking as noted was provided and without struggle, entering the premises we found great delight in its presentation and more importantly cleanliness. Booking in was straight forward and welcoming with added information provided to ensure we obtain the maximum from our stay....

First impressions were good.Clean and pleasant room, and nice staff. We were in room 3. Sadly the floorboards in the room above creaked terribly with every movement, which really disturbed our night. Then, the bed in the room above squeaked badly!!!. All a bit disappointing. TV was also tiny and ancient. Nice place but floorboards need some attention, and that...

We stayed at woodlands for 2 nights recently, this was a gift from our daughters for our 25th wedding anniversary.

We stayed at woodlands for 3 nights recently, having decided on a short break to the Lake District. The rooms looked truly stunning and though the place had a bit of a mixed reaction on TripAdvisor we decided to give it a go. It's a short walk to Windermere itself, and a little bit longer walk to Bowness but is...

We stayed at Woodlands for one night but enjoyed our short time there. Staff were attentive, friendly and made you feel at home. Our room on the first floor was a good size and very clean. It is in a great location and we would stay here again when visiting Windemere.
