Thanks for the review. We are always pleased when people come and stay and feel that it was worth leaving home for. You need to bring the mountain bikes next time and leave them in my workshop. Mick and Wendy

An excellent location, central for both Windermere and Bowness. Lovely room with comfy four poster bed; clean and tastefully decorated. Pleasant welcoming and homely atmosphere complete with cute rabbits and dog. Hosts were so friendly and took time to chat and get to know you. Good luck with the welding of your car Mick. Thank you for an enjoyable stay...

Our top floor room has two short flights of stairs and has never proved to be a challenge, if mobility were ever a problem we have a lovely...

I booked this lodge online so never 100% sure if it owuld live up to the pictures. I was visiting for a few days from the USA. The hotel felt like home from the moment I walked through the door. Wendy and Mick are super friendly, helpful and welcoming. Nothing is too much bother and the place is impeccably decorated....

My wife and I returned to Ivythwaite for a second time during May 2013 for another weekend. This time we tried self catering staying in the charming “Cranny” a beautiful very well appointed split level apartment. We really enjoyed our stay and love this location looking forward to our next break at Ivythwaite.

Perfect location halfway between Windermere and the lake but it is on a quiet side street away from the main road. Service and breakfast was brilliant and served in the dining room at 9.00am with the log burner lit and candles on the table. After hiking the fells we had a double sized spa bath to both relax in. Who...
