Great location ideal access to bowness shops and ferries; rooms comfy; good breakfast and service. can't really fault anything - parking is tight to get around the back of the guest house ensure you're reversing skills are up to scratch!

I stayed in a beautiful traditional room with the most amazing views across the lake. The location was perfect and only a 2 minute walk to all the shops and restaurants. The breakfast was tasty and we liked the toffees in the lounge as we always stopped to have a coffee before going o our room. The room was nice...

They certainly made sure we had everything we needed. The room was serviced every day to a very high standard, the breakfast was quality every day and Karen and...

Stayed at Oakview August 2013. It claims to be a 5 star B and B which is quite outrageous. The situation is very good, in the heart of the town. The breakfast is OK, but nothing special. However, our room was a big let down. There was a half size wardrobe which was about 3 feet high, useless for long...
