We booked a double room and were allocated room 5 which enjoys a lake view. The room was bigger than we expected, having a sofa in it to sit and relax. The room was spotlessly clean and the linen felt really luxurious. The breakfast was good quality ingredients cooked well. It was a substantial breakfast to keep you going throughout...

We stayed here for 3 nights and were allocated room 5 at the top of the house. It was wonderful with a fabulous view over Lake Windermere in the distance. The room was spacious, light and airy, with a comfy bed, and a sofa, which you rarely get in a guest house. Everything was spotlessly clean. My only complaint, and...

Thank you for your lovely review, we were really pleased you enjoyed your stay. On the booking side we don't allocate rooms it is purely preference of the person booking, each room is explained on our site and the room in question (room 5) is described as on the second floor, because of this it has got superb views but...
