Good Hotel Guide Review

Enter through the wood-panelled hall at mid-afternoon to be greeted with a cream tea at this upmarket B&B overlooking Lake Windermere. ‘Charming and friendly’, the Kennedy family has owned the Edwardian country home for 34 years. With daughters Sheena, Joanna and Kate, matriarch Diana Kennedy runs the show. And what a show it is: take in ‘wonderful views over Lakeland scenery’ from the large, lush garden; inside, flop into an armchair in one of the spacious lounges, or settle into an individually designed bedroom made homey with sherry and an espresso coffee machine. Local gastropubs and restaurants are within an easy drive, but guests hankering after a lazy evening should pre-order a soup of the day or a supper platter (perhaps with chicken goujons and a country pâté, or a twice-baked cheese soufflé and grilled vegetables) to eat in. Breakfast, with freshly squeezed juice, home-made marmalade and granola, and ‘a wide choice’ of cooked dishes, is praised. Pack your boots – circular walks start from the doorstep; Bowness is a half-hour’s downhill stroll around the lake.

Guest comments

'Spacious lounges combined with excellent service make this a must in the Lake District. Being a single guest does not mean a downgrade; in a single room one still gets full treatment. Food is good. Breakfast has wide choice, dinner has a menu changing monthly, but with specials changed every day. All delicious. A lovely, friendly atmosphere. ' - Dorothy Brining - August, 2014
'Another visit to our old favourite. Our room on the second floor was spacious, with a grand view over Windermere. The bathroom was very small with just a shower. Our only problem was with the sloping roof - it was awfully easy to bash the head! Having stayed there for several years now, I can recognize a number of staff -- a good sign. ' - Jill Bennett - April, 2014
