Loved this B&B and would recommend it to anyone. Convenient spot for walking into Bowness, beautifully maintained house and decor, welcoming hosts and excellent breakfasts! Cant say more than that!

Fir Trees is a delightful B&B! The owners, Bea and Bob Towers, are welcoming and friendly and cannot do enough to make your stay with them the best! The house is immaculate and the rooms are all tastefully decorated, down to the smallest little detail. The breakfasts were excellent. We would highly recommend Fir Trees to anyone planning a visit to the Lake District.

Room Tip: There are pictures of all the rooms on the Fir Trees' website so you can look at them all and ch...

We had a lovely stay at firtrees bea and bob could not have been more welcoming and attentive. The house has been kept with dated decor from years gone by which we found to be utterly charming and endearing. It was clean comfortable and refreshments in the room generous along with the lovely breakfast we really had everything we needed. Great location from windermere town and we will definitely be back................highly recommended to anyone looking for a great place to stay! Paul and Katie

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2012 via mobile

The landlady, Mrs. Towers, was welcoming and cheerful at check-in and breakfast, but unseen at other times. There is no office, so we were unsure how to contact the landlords for questions or concerns that were not absolute emergencies. We could not phone as there are no phones in the rooms and our cell phones did not work in the UK. The room was small but comfortable enough and imaginatively furnished; I was amazed that they could fit in a small sofa. The bathroom was so small that it was difficult to dry oneself after showering without opening the door. The toilet handle had to be pumped repeatedly before it would flush. I cannot believe the staff did not notice this while cleaning. The weather was quite warm while we were there; since there is no air conditioning, the heavy comforter on the bed was overkill. We found a lighter blanket in the closet and remade the bed ourselves. There is a rule against bringing takeaway food into the rooms, which seems a bit much to me since the establishment does not offer dinner. The website for this place also claims there is Internet available, but I found only a telephone number to call for Internet in the folder of guest information provided. Again, since we had no working phone, we could not call to investigate, and never picked up a signal on our devices. Breakfast was very good, available for a limited time, but tasty and reasonable portions. I was amazed at the amount of traffic in the area. With the windows open due to the heat, the traffic noise was a bit disturbing, and the window coverings did not block out light. I would choose another place to stay should I return to the Lake District.
