Beautiful setting, immaculate room, lovely people wanted for nothing. Ian is so helpful, friendly and cooks a great breakfast. Great location close to everything. The pool and gym is a bonus. Can't wait to come back.

Having stayed at a number of guest houses across Windermere, I can honestly say Ian is by far the most outgoing - not only did he sit down with us on arrival to ensure we had all we needed in relation to our stay, he provided us with his personal number to contact him should we need anything and offered his assistance in relation to his knowledge of the Lake District and had recommendations to hand should we have needed them. This is something we havent had at any other guest house and impressed us greatly.

The guest house itself is beautifully presented in an eclectic mix of traditional and modern decor with many tech quirks (we even had a "smart toilet!") and the cleanliness could not be faulted.

Breakfast portions were sizeable and Ian is happy to accommodate requests which we found helpful as fussy eaters!

Overall we had a fantastic break and would recommend the Glencree guest house to anyone.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Glencree! The property is in a great location and the host, Ian, was extremely friendly and helpful, he made us feel very welcome and couldn’t do enough for us from the minute we arrived.

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and Ian kindly gave us a complimentary bottle of Prosecco to enjoy on our balcony! The breakfast was delicious and served up in a beautiful breakfast room! The whole guest house is finished to a beautiful standard with modern and luxury decor throughout!

The room was beautifully finished with lots of little extra touches, the bed was very comfortable and everything was cleaned to a high standard.

We stay in the lakes every year for anniversary, picking somewhere different each time but we will definitely stay here again.

Thank you to Ian and all at Glencree for a superb relaxing weekend

We honestly can’t fault this place, it’s perfect! We’ve been staying here for the last 4 years and wouldn’t stay anywhere else.
Ian is a fantastic host and super friendly with lots of local knowledge and is happy to recommend places to eat and visit. The guest house is beautifully decorated throughout, our room was very comfortable and clean to a high standard we had everything that we needed.
The breakfast is excellent and sausage were massive also great choice of cereal and fresh juice to. We had a fantastic stay and would highly recommend to anyone. This place is a little gem. Thanks Ian for a great stay.
