Stayed here for 3 nights. The hospitality was fantastic, and the room was immaculate, comfortable and spacious. Right from the get-go we were made to feel at home and all our questions about the local area were answered. Our hosts were always happy to help and the breakfast was delicious. Would happily return.

Great stay in the Firgarth B&B. Very friendly and helpfull staff. Free parking space next to the building. It's not in the Windermere centre so it's not so crowded. The staff gave us good recommendations for restaurants and things to do in the area. They even lent us small book with good hikes. Although wifi wasn't very fast, they gave...

I will run through your comments as they have appeared in your review. As you stated you were weary when you arrived and also late, the fact that your partner had a bad cold may also had something to do with the fact that you didn't feel I was friendly, clearly my fault! Yes you were late when you eventually...
