Do you remember the bad old days of bed & breakfast? I remember a visit to Windermere where the landlady appeared to be in the middle stages of an acute nervous collapse, the food was terrible and and en-suite bathroom was an unheard of luxury. Not so today!
Bed & breakfast establishments in the Lake District very often hold their own against Hotels now. Egyptian silk pillows, contemporary boutique style rooms and bathrooms and of course the famous Cumbrian breakfast make a break in the Lakes a real must in the 21st century.
Its the little touches that make a stay special and Guest House owners want you to come back so you will find roaring log fires and comfy guest lounges, wi-fi access and complimentary toiletries among other things to ensure that you enjoy your stay.
We try to personally visit as many b&b’s as possible and our comments can be found at the bottom of the individual b&b pages in the “in our view” section. If we have given the establishment a positive review then it means we like it and you will too!
