High Fold Guest House is just a couple of miles outside of Bowness on Windermere and three miles from Ambleside meaning it is ideally situated to explore the Lakes.

Delighted to discover this lovely guest house on the Golakes website, having spent a lot of time online looking at places which seemed too elaborate (and too expensive) for our needs. The reality more than lived up to expectations. Applethwaite is a very spacious dual-aspect room with a huge bed and a comfortable sofa as well as easy chairs. Access... More

We arrived on a very cold afternoon & not only were we welcomed with a warm house but with the offer of a hot cup of tea in the breakfast room. The views from the room were outstanding & in the morning, after a dusting of snow on the higher fells, they became awesome. The house was very warm, the... More

Highfold guest house was recommended by our daughter, who had stayed there twice. We were not disappointed. The accomodation was excellent and the breakfasts could not have been better.

An outstanding B&B in a magnificent beautiful setting with attentive friendly owners are the chief attributes of High Fold Guest House.

Thank-you for completing a review. We are surprised at your comments as they do seem out of step with our other reviews. Nevertheless we’re sorry you were a little disappointed with your breakfast. We only use the best quality local produce and dry cure bacon, if overcooked, does tend to go hard rather than crispy. Similarly there is a fine... More

We stayed two nights here prior to a rambling weekend in Hawkshead with friends. Made very welcome and were offered useful and good advice re walks. Excellent and comfortable room. Lots of choice for breakfasts. Lovely to watch the garden birds at the feeder from the dining room window. What a view!
