Cosy little B&B. Dog friendly. Sherry & biscuit in lounge nice touch. Catered for gluten free with a couple of days notice. 2 minute walk to lake Windermere and shops and restaurants. Room was quite small but clean and cosy, so ok for a few days stay.

Great stay at the Virginia Cottage. Rooms are spotless and the breakfast was top notch. Nice touch with the baked cakes in each room and the complimentary sherry and biscuits. The owners are always on hand should you require anything. Access to the spa is also given to guests which is great to have when the weather is bad.

We had a double room with four poster and a refurbished, modern, spotless bathroom. The breakfasts were of excellent quality. There were lovely touches that made you feel very welcome such as mints in the reception area and free cookies and sherry for a quick nightcap in the snug. The location is excellent being a very short walk from restaurants...
