    Thank you for your positive feedback from your stay at Holmlea. Apologies for not having porridge as requested. We do however provide 5 different cereals and yoghurts at breakfast and will look to include porridge in the future.

    Thoroughly enjoyable 4 night stay. Comfortable room and lovely home cooked breakfasts. Welcoming host and convenient off street parking which is a bonus in very busy Bowness. Great location, close to all attractions. All in all would highly recommend.
