A fabulous guest house. We keep going back every year. The rooms are spacious and the breakfast fills you up for the morning, which is a good idea as we then walked down into Windermere. You are greeted on arrival by the owner Nick. Very pleasant and quiet accommodation. Would definitely recommend. Thank you Nick and Cheryl for a really...

From entering the guesthouse till the time we left we were treated very pleasantly. The room was nice, the bathroom good, and a very nice touch, the towelling bathrobes. The towels weren't bad either. There was a choice for breakfast , a full breakfast or smaller but adequate egg with salmon, poached egg with ham and hollandaise sauce, toast, coffee,...

The Ravensworth was perfectly situated for access to Windermere, Ambleside & beyond. My elderly parents struggled a bit with the stairs, but other than that the rooms were clean & tidy and the facilities offered everything we needed. I'd recommend the Cumbrian breakfast, lovely sausages and bacon, beautifully cooked and not huge portions, so still had the energy to head...
