Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Lovely owners’, the ‘charming and friendly’ Kennedy family, lay on a cream tea for new arrivals at their wisteria-draped Edwardian country house, run as a luxury B&B. It sits in grounds laid out by nurseryman and garden designer Thomas Mawson, and melts into the landscape, against a backdrop of the fells swaddling Lake Windermere. Bedrooms range from snug singles to spacious, traditionally styled doubles with lake views. All are warmly elegant, and supplied with an espresso machine, decanter of sherry, smart toiletries. A generous breakfast includes home-made yogurt and marmalade, French pastries; perhaps a Cumberland grill, kippers or Finnan haddock, or full veggie with free-range eggs. Soup and sandwiches are served all day, with wines from a short list, while from 12 to 8 pm, with notice, you can order a cheese, meat or fish platter. Sunday lunch can also be pre-booked. Sitting on the terrace when the rhododendrons are in full cry, you may not want to tear yourself away, unless for spa treatments in Windermere, or a meal at The Punch Bowl in Crosthwaite (see entry), well worth the 15-minute drive.

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
