We stayed at Briardene for three nights in January as it was my 40th birthday. Sam and David are excellent hosts and have paid great attention to detail in the furnishing of their home. We had booked the Victorian room, but the four-poster room was empty so we were given a free upgrade on arrival.

The room was very spacious, clean and beautifully furnished with a view of the library park. We had a really good night's sleep throughout our stay (despite the howling gale outside!) because the bed was so amazingly comfy. There was an extensive choice on the breakfast menu, and everything we chose was well cooked.

Briardene's location means it's easy to walk into Windermere and Bowness so we could leave the car behind. If you want to stay in a warm and welcoming B&B in Windermere, look no further than Briardene. We would love to stay here again the next time we visit the Lake District. Thanks, Sam and David!

We booked the Briardene for three nights to celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary. We stayed in the fourposter room Sam and Dave having very kindly upgraded us to help in the celebrations. Both hubby and I agree this is the nicest hotel we've stayed in, the room was absolutely beautiful, decorated to a very high standard and the bed was sooo comfy - like sleeping on a cloud. Sam and Dave were both very welcoming, it was more like holidaying with friends and Sam is an excellent cook the breakfast choice was varied and really very tasty. The only downside - we had to come home!!!. If your idea of a good holiday is somewhere peaceful but within easy walking distance of the town centre and local amenities with good food and even better hosts then this is the one for you.

Thanks to a cancellation we were able to stay again at this lovely bed and breakfast in the heart of windemere. It's location is fantastic for walking into Windemere and Bowness. We have previously stayed in the Attic Room and this time the Victorian Room. The rooms are all spotless and perfectly decorated. Sam and David are lovely hosts and really make you feel welcome in their home. The breakfasts are plentiful and we love the alternative breakfasts and locally sourced produce. We hope to visit again very soon.
