A slightly different stay due to Covid 19, but still as good as ever. The changes were minimal, prebooked breakfast and removal of soft furnishings etc in room. As comfortable as ever, good breakfast and Peter & Jayne very welcoming. Our default choice in Windermere

Just spent a great 3 nights at the superb Glenville b&b. Best breakfast we’ve had and we’ve had a few!! The hosts are very welcoming and should be very proud of their business. The room was excellent and spotlessly clean. Thanks again see you both soon. Ian & Helen

We stayed at the Glenville for three nights as a birthday treat. The whole experience was top notch, with friendly proprietors Peter and Jayne, a lovely spotlessly clean room with excellent facilities (a small fridge, 'real' milk for hot drinks, a lovely comfortable bed and great views over the woods as highlights), high quality breakfast choices with tasty local food well cooked and presented, with ample choice, easy car parking and a short walk to both Windermere and Bowness town centres. It really was home from home and we will definitely stay again.

Picking the right guest house can take hours with so many to choose from. If you’re visiting the Lake District, allow me to help save you some time and make that decision easy. Peter and Jayne were wonderful hosts, the room we had was great, with great facilities including our own little fridge. The breakfasts were lovely and served piping hot…. a rare thing I’ve found in my travels. Lovely homemade jams were a nice touch! The bed was really very comfortable…. and I know everyone has their own preferences in types of mattress firmness… but I felt like I was sleeping on a cloud! Grenville House is on a road, sitting 10 minutes walk from either Windermere or Bowness, depending on if you turn left or right as you leave the building. I couldn’t have been happier with my choice of somewhere to stay on this trip, and based on the visitors book, plenty of their clients are returning customers - which says it all. I haven’t been to the Lake District for many years, but wouldn’t even think about trying anywhere else to stay. Thank you and best wishes Peter and Jayne
