We stayed for 2 nights, felt very welcome. Room was nice and clean, hostess's made us feel very welcome (including letting us check in early) and breakfast was lovely. A little disappointed with the shower but definitely doesn't change my opinion of this lovely little quaint guest house! Would definitely recommend to family and friends.

We stayed here for one night while the rest of the family were staying in a lovely lodge in langdale. The reason we couldn't stay there was because there wasn't enough beds for the amount of people so we thought we would stay here for the night. We rang up to say we would be late to check in because...

This room was booked via Booking.com. At no stage was there any sort of conversation apart from “we will be late checking in as we have got a meal booked”. Not our problem. On the Booking.com website all the relevant details are there for everyone to see. The check-in time clearly states 4pm to 9pm. If asked we will try...

Having been to Windermere a number of times before, we knew the location of this place would be excellent - right in the centre of the village, only a couple of minutes walk from the nearest shops, cafes and restaurants. We weren't expecting free parking right outside the door so it was a lovely surprise when there was! It's important...

Had a one night stay here. Very friendly owners. Room was nice and the bed really comfortable. They also have a guest lounge which is really nice. The location was really good only a 2min walk into Windermere. Breakfast was really good to. Will definitely stay here again.

We had a short stay for 1 night at Green Gables whilst visiting the area to take part in a night trail run. I think we were given a free upgrade from the room we had provisionally booked to an ensuite room. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable with the added bonus of storage space and a seating area....

Wonderful guest house for a break away. Very clean and staff were helpful and friendly. Free parking available on the road outside (limited). Full breakfast was also served and it was beautiful. Was within walking distance of the central lake. Would definitely recommend.

We really enjoyed staying at Green Gables. The room was very clean, the shower nice and hot and the bed comfy. The hosts were so lovely and welcoming and the Cumbrian breakfast was amazing. We would definitely stay again and can't thank the hosts enough for their lovely hospitality during our stay.

Rooms a bit small with no real luggage space. We stayed in the 2nd floor. From the train station, easily walkable. Restaurants are nearby. Breakfast is available rather late from 8.30 am, unless you make a specific request. But the breakfast is truly great - even for vegetarians. Very systematic serving of breakfast in a very posh setting, which overcomes...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
At Green Gables we have a very simple philosophy - clean, comfortable accommodation at a reasonable price. We do not provide all the latest gizmos and gadgetry. Nor do we provide "boutique" style toiletries or membership to gyms or spas. If you really want these then please ask at the time of booking and we will adjust the price accordingly. We do not have a long list of rules and regulations and you will find us more like a "home from home" than a stuffy and strict place to stay. ... more   less
