We stayed for the weekend here and from the first moment we arrived got a warm and friendly welcome from the owner. The room was small but perfectly equipped. Breakfast was great and everywhere was spotless, we booked to stay again in January. Perfectly positioned in Bowness it was ideal for what we wanted, would not hesitate to recommend this...

I have stayed here previous to this year as me and my mum have an annual lakes trip. This year we had actually booked in at the hydro hotel, we got there and it was horrendous! I looked on booking.com and suprisingly there was a room available! I quickly rang up and and the owner was only too happy to...

Just stayed here for the one night for my husbands birthday. I booked it last minute and was lucky they had one room left. We have been to Bowness many times and this was a great find. Lovely spotless room, location brilliant and staff was very welcoming with a nice breakfast before we checked out. Lovely character to the place...

Well-situated towards the upper end of Bowness, this B&B suffered by comparison with the others we stayed in on our Dales Way hike. It was far from a bad B&B: 3 stars is a perfectly acceptable rating. Our bed was comfortable, the welcome pleasant and we had a good meal for breakfast. It's also perfectly situated for access to several...

Thanks for your review, sorry about the small bathroom but we cannot make it any larger without taking more room off the bedroom, this is why we like to give it (if possible) to our 1 night stays which is what you were. I'm glad though that you found your trip pleasant enough. It was very nice to meet you...

Hotel was really clean and nice, rooms were lovely, would recommend for location, really close to shops and 3 minute walk to the lake. No issues with noise etc, a nice peaceful place to for a short stay in the lakes.

Stayed here with my daughter on the first leg of our road trip holiday - paid £160 for 2 nights the last weekend in July, on the face of it sounds expensive but looking at other places to stay near Bowness or Windermere at that time it was very reasonable. We were in the twin room (room 1) which was...

Cant fault the old court house. It was a last minute choice to spend our honeymoon in windermere and decided to use this bnb. Lovely staff, very polite and friendly. It feels so homely. Comfy beds, great room and would stay here again. Thankyou for your hospitality
