We stayed at St John's Lodge for four nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is convenient by public transport, and it is easy to get to Windermere, Bowness and surrounding areas. Rich and his team were very hospitable throughout our stay, and they have an award winning breakfast menu - we have not seen the likes of it...

Great customer service and excellent choice of breakfast options. In a great location a short walk from bowness. The room we stayed in was small but cosy and had everything we needed. The staff made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived.

So we booked in for 3 nights (Minimum number of nights at new year). It is located halfway between Windermere and Bowness and is within easy...

My partner and I stayed here in the summer and absolutely loved it. Rich had made a great guide to local walks which were extremely helpful and easy to follow. The room (standard double) was amazing - very clean and spacious. Since we loved it so much I decided to book a trip for my parents for their anniversary, and...
