We spent a couple of nights at the bay house on Windermere on our return from our holiday touring England This wasn't our first time and again our visit was faultless Because it was a last minute decision to visit there was only one of the small rooms available however it was actually much better than we expected and the view of the lake was brilliant The house was spotlessly clean and we were made feel both welcome and safe by our hosts Maxine and Gordon - oh and the breakfast was superb We have already booked our visit for 2022 - it doesn't get any better than the Bay House

My wife and I stayed here late September as a short 3 day break in the Lake District. We were taken aback by the friendly staff who go out of their way to make you feel relaxed and welcome. House rules are gone through quickly and your in your own room. Room was very clean and comfortable and suited our needs as we were not planning to stay in much. Breakfast is included in the price and you choose from a menu the afternoon before. The view from the room was of Lake Winderemere. Maxine and Graham were wonderful hosts, making sure you had everything you could need for a great break. Hotel is adult only and very quiet which we loved. Also we received a piece of cake every day which was different flavours each time and a lovely wee surprise. Tea, coffee, sugar, milk and biscuits also available in room with cups, kettle, glasses, towels and even a hairdryer. Free Wi-Fi is also available. Our next trip to the lakes will see us re-book here.
