The location was very quiet, the breakfasts very generous and very hospitable hosts
Our hosts were wonderful and looked after us so well, our room was just what we wanted, breakfast was amazing.
There was nothing to dislike.
Had a lovely break at The Holly-Wood. Yana and Ian were perfect hosts. Everything about the Holly-Wood was perfect. We will certainly be back again.
Very welcoming, great breakfast, comfortable beds, good value for money.
Right in heart of the Lakes and convenient for town centre. Great value and a warm welcome.
Onsite parking limited but never had an issue finding places on road outside front door.
Excellent hotel with a warm and friendly welcome
- Friendly and very kind staffs. - The typical English breakfast was very delicious. The local black pudding was also tasty. Marmalade is hand-made. We also think that the red beans was hand-made... for sure it is not from Heinz. 日本人の方へ スタッフのイアンさんにお部屋まで案内して頂いた際、「洗濯物は干さないで」とお願いされました。説明によると、日本人女性２名が以前泊まられた際に大洗濯をされ、大掛かりな干し方をされ、カーペットやベッドがビチャビチャになったんだとか・・・ 旅行中に洗濯する感覚は世界共通ではないので、気をつけたいですね。実は私たちも洗濯はしましたが、下着と靴下程度だったので、夜の間はバスルームで干し、乾ききれてないものは朝、部屋に置いてあったヘアドライヤーで乾かしました。 気をつけるべきはその程度だと思います。朝ごはんはとても美味しかったし、スタッフ（イアンさんとヤナさん）も感じがとても良かったです。
We had a cosy, clean, spacious room within easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. Lake Windermere was a slightly longer walk, but very manageable. An added bonus was a guest fridge to chill our wine.
Room is very clean; Bathroom is big and clean; Very quiet;
A bit far away from Windermere pier
We were greeted when we arrived by Ian who was very polite and then assisted us with our luggage to our rooms. We meet Yana the following morning who again was very polite. They deserve top awards for cleanliness and hospitality, everything was excellent. Within the house was little extra touches which made it that extra special. We would definitely recommend.
Ian & Yana really care about their guest, I felt very welcome! Breakfast is great and the rooms are beautiful. I would recomment this place to everyone and stay there again if I ever return to the Lakes! Thanks for everything!!

We liked everything.
Room was as described small, but comfortable. Generous supplies of refreshments & toiletries. Great breakfasts, considerate little touches and treats. Excellent location.
Homely feel - without being old fashioned
friendly and good food and not to far to walk into the town or lakes.
Loved everything. Cotton bed sheets to home made marmalade for breakfast! Made to feel so welcome and right next to where I needed to be. Would definitely go back again!
I stayed in the single room, which was a bit cramped, but still fairly comfortable. The room included a private bathroom with shower, TV, desk, and electric kettle. The breakfast in the morning was wonderful - the spread included freshly squeezed orange juice, cereals and muesli, toast, full English breakfast (or vegetarian alternatives). The owners were fantastic. All in all, it was a great value for the single room. The location of the house is about a 5 minute walk from Windermere town.
The mattress on the bed was too soft and felt like it needed replacement as it sagged a bit. The towels in the bathroom had a very strong odor on them which was very likely the type of detergent used. I prefer neutral smelling bath towels and linens in hotels and lodgings. I would replace the non-mixer tap in the bathroom with a mixer tap and also change the carpet to nicer carpet or a hardwood floor.
Really lovely breakfast with a good choice offered. Owners friendly and helpful and most pleasant. It was a pleasure staying there.
Ian and Yana (owners) were such a lovely couple. We were looked after very well. The breakfast was excellent. The room was clean and spacious. I highly recommend this place.
Fantastic hostess, nothing ever too much trouble.
