Excellent guesthouse
Excellent guest house situated in the Windermere/bowness lake region. Arrived to a pleasant reception from the owners of the guesthouse. Room was very clean and tidy however the room we stayed in (number 3) was rather small but the other couples we travelled with said there rooms were excellent and of a good size. Good cooked breakfast on the morning. Great location as all the pubs and attractions are approximately 5/10 minute walk away. Excellent place all round the small room was just a minor incovienece but was fine for the two nights we spent here.

OK but could be much better
No staff present on arrival, key left under plastic pot next to front door with wrong name on the envelope containing front door and room key. Wifi was non-existent, would not allow connection to either service but thankfully 3G in the area. Breakfast served 8am to 9am only so didn't allow for an early start. Room comfortable, a bit tight for space but otherwise OK, but the shower was useless with barely a trickle coming out on full power. All in all, over priced for the service and quality of the stay.
