There was nothing to fault about Ivy Bank, the owners were very welcoming, friendly and helpful with suggestions of things to do and places to visit. The room was very comfortable, the owners were very accommodating to our needs and Ivy Bank is very good value for money.
Great breakfasts, very friendly hosts. All round a brilliant stay.
My family and i likes it to much ,we feel just like home
Really enjoy the stay with thoughtful host and hostess. The room was clean and warm. Lovely English traditional breakfast! Thanks for sharing the knowledge of kipper with me!
Hosts were friendly, helpful & knowledgeable about the area. In a separate sitting room they have lots of tourist leaflets, books of the area, a folder containing restaurant menu's. The room we had was cosy, very peaceful, it has a good shower/bath & the breakfast was really nice.
We spent 3 nights at Ivy Bank during our stay in the Lake District. We were very happy with the room facilities, very clean room and bathroom, excellent breakfast and very friendly providers - Nicky and her husband. They also gave us very useful tips for walks and hiking in the area. We would be happy to come back again!
Everything was perfect!
hosts are very kind. different choices are offered for breakfast. very nice stay.
a little far from the railway station
The hosts are very friendly. It was a comfortable place to live. Cozy room and strong facilities. The breakfasts were great!
Superb accommodation. Very friendly owners, home from home
The fact we had to leave!
Ivy Bank is in an excellent location. Nicky and Gareth are fantastic hosts, friendly and helpful at all times. Great breakfasts, especially the poached and scrambled eggs.
customer care was no problem, nothing was too much for this lovely couple. Even made a pack up breakfast for those who were not able to eat before leaving.
minor = no glass in en suite.
Well located ,good breakfast ,clean & comfortable& very helpful owners .
the host and hostess are friendly and helpful. the room is clean and tidy. the breakfast is lovely.
the temperature of the shower water is not very stable. on one or two days, the floor of the washroom didn't seem to be cleaned.
We loved the location of this B & B. Lovely breakfast, friendly and helpful hosts.
Everything - including the birthday cake surprise from Nicky to my wife which we found when we got back to our comfortable room after a very enjoyable tour of the Lake district
Nothing!! except being forbidden to talk cars with Gareth
Nicky and Gareth were very welcoming and always there to help plan your day! The breakfast was excellent and the room was just what we wanted! Really lovely place and I would recommend it :)
No dislikes :)

All facilities was very good. Staff was very helpful. Definitely would like to recommend my friends and other to visit IVY bank guest house
No Dislikes :)
Nothing was too much for Nicky and Gareth whilst we stayed at this great place. Windermere village was only a 5 minute walk away and Bowness was a short 15 minute walk away. Nicky and Gareth helped us plan our short stay and ensured we had everything we needed. We also went on a 30 minute walk to see the view from Orrest Head in Windermere and it was worth it. The view was amazing and it was something that I had never done before. I would definitely recommend this walk even if you are not fond of walking. This walk was recommended by Gareth to us and it's somewhere you can have a picnic and stay for a few hours. Breakfast was great in the morning with a cooked breakfast, cereals, yoghurts and fresh juice available everyday. The room was clean and tidy and had everything that we needed. The wifi connection was superb!! It was a pleasure meeting great hosts and we will definitely be back again soon. One of my husbands highlights was seeing Gareth's apron in the morning at breakfast and it was something he would wake up for!! Thank you to the both of you for a great stay!!!
The owners - Nicky and Gareth are extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast Location
Nicky and Gareth, the hosts of this delightful little B&B, were an absolute pleasure to deal with. They were friendly, helpful and nothing was too much trouble. My room was lovely, comfortable, and well equipped. The en-suite had everything you needed, the shower was a good size and the water pressure was excellent. The location of the B&B was great - just 5 mins walk to Windermere town, and15 mins into Bowness. Breakfast was more than ample, and included a cooked English breakfast, along with a choice of yoghurts, cereals, juices, etc The free wi-fi signal was strong, consistent, and trouble free.
Nothing really - although perhaps a seat to sit outside in the garden would be nice.
