This was my first visit to the Lake District and Windermere turned out to be an ideal base for this purpose. Briardene is attractively situated on a quiet and uncrowded road, yet the centre of town is just a few minutes walk around the corner. Head in the opposite direction and you will stroll into busy, but delightful, Bowness within...

Very welcoming and cosy bed and breakfast. Our room was so comfortable and attention to detail was perfect. The bed just nestled into you so you would have a good nights sleep. The breakfasts were amazing. I had a bacon sandwich which I have to say is the best I have tasted. We would return again in the future.😀

Thouroughly enjoyable stay, my only criticism is that we were not there for longer. The room had an en suite, comfortable bed, hot shower and we were provided with towels and dressing gowns etc. Breakfast was very tasty and the proprietors are very, very hospitable. Would definitely reccomend to anyone, of any age.

We stayed in the 4 poster room for 2 nights Fri/Sat. Best bed we've both slept in, so comfortable, wanted to take it home! Nice and quiet location yet Windermere village right on your doorstep. Breakfasts were lovely too. This guest house has a really nice homely feeling and would definitely stay there again.

“We stayed in room 3 the Victorian room which was great for the two of us with a window to the side of the property overlooking the car guest house car park and a very large En Suit. Although we did not see it the Four Poster Bedroom is at the front of the property and looks larger and overlooks the park which would be our preference the next time we visit.”

“The attic is up a narrow set of stairs but feels separate from the other rooms and is not disturbed by other guests coming and going.”
