Fantastic B & B with lovely hosts
Victorian B& B, perfectly situated in a quiet part of Bowness, an easy walk to restaurants, shops, and lake Windermere. Convenient to bus service to Windermere, Ambleside, and Grasmere. Clare and Robert were superb and attentive hosts, really made you feel at home. They provided fantastic recommendations for hikes, restaurants and activities. Breakfast in the bright drawing room with a large picture window overlooking the garden was hardy, with choices from full English to vegetarian to light fare. Impeccably clean throughout. Relaxing garden, comfortable, quiet room - couldn’t have hoped for better!
