Just back from a 2 night stay it has to be said it's like going home. Janet warmly welcomed us as usual with a big hug for us both. We stayed in the red room this time & everything was perfect. We both slept well, there was plenty of hot water & the cooked breakfasts were great. We have stayed...

We spent a weekend at The Greystone Cottage in March 2017. We stayed in the Red Room. Janet greeted us with a very warm and friendly smile. Nothing was too much trouble. We were made to feel welcome, like a home from home. The room was lovely, warm and cosy. The power shower was amazing. Our breakfast was gorgeous one...

We’ve stayed a couple of times at Greystone Cottage and quite honestly, wouldn’t look for another B&B in Windermere unless Greystone was full. Janet is so friendly and welcoming, nothing is too much trouble and it is a real home from home feeling staying there. A little bag of Thorntons chocolates in the room is the icing on the cake!...

I had an excellent 3 night stay at greystone cottage between Christmas and new year. This is an excellent B&B with a superb host in Janet. I have never felt more welcome in a B&B from the moment I arrived. Janet was always happy to recommend places to eat and has a wealth of knowledge of the local area. The...

We return from Australia time and time again. Janet and Tony are more like family than hosts. Rooms are lovely and cosy, parking is easy and the villages within walking distance. We highly recommend Greystone cottage as the perfect getaway. Tell Janet we said hi!!!

My wife and I visited this fabulous B&B for the second time. We had a short break in early November and found it just as good as the 1st time last year. Hostess Janet was as charming and helpful as before. She ut us on to a lovely little pub round the corner from the B&B and told us about...

You could be forgiven for mistaking this charming B&B with that of the home of a favourite relative such is the warmth of the greeting you receive from Janet the proprietor. Boasting just 3 double rooms, this wonderfully individual property could hardly be better placed for Windermere and surrounding areas being barely a ten minute stroll from the bars, shops...
