We return from Australia time and time again. Janet and Tony are more like family than hosts. Rooms are lovely and cosy, parking is easy and the villages within walking distance. We highly recommend Greystone cottage as the perfect getaway. Tell Janet we said hi!!!

My wife and I visited this fabulous B&B for the second time. We had a short break in early November and found it just as good as the 1st time last year. Hostess Janet was as charming and helpful as before. She ut us on to a lovely little pub round the corner from the B&B and told us about...

You could be forgiven for mistaking this charming B&B with that of the home of a favourite relative such is the warmth of the greeting you receive from Janet the proprietor. Boasting just 3 double rooms, this wonderfully individual property could hardly be better placed for Windermere and surrounding areas being barely a ten minute stroll from the bars, shops...

The room we stayed in was immaculate and well provisioned with...

2nd time staying here. Stayed in the pink room last time so we thought we'd try the larger blue room this time. We weren't disappointed at all! There's not much more we can add this time that we didn't say in our previous review. Janet is an excellent hostess, very easy to get along with, and it was a pleasure...
