    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.

    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!!!

    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.

    we went for a long weekend too the Lake District, and this turned out to be a hidden gem. I would definitely recommend the B&B, the staff are friendly and it is a short walk to the train station (and view point) and a short distance from the river side. The staff were very helpful, and recommended activities we could do and what the best ones were. Overall a very nice and convenient place to stay.

    The breakfast wasn't the greatest in my opinion (although they do offer to give you a variation of the food), and the pillows in the room are probably one of the worst I have slept on in a while.

    Food, amenities & location were excellent. Nicky & Garreth are wonderful hosts

    The staircase (being on the top floor) but it did not detract from the stay & we would definitely go back there again

    Ivy Bank is in a good location, close to great paths to walk to get to the lake (aprox. 25 min). The owners were very friendly and hοspitable and helped us enjoy our holidays. The place was clean and tidy and breakfast was good.

    Our room didn't have a great view, but we spent most of the day away, so we didn't mind.

    Great location, convenient on and off road parking. Nicky and Gareth could not have been more hospitable. Fresh milk in the room on request, lovely breakfast and even a wee cake for our anniversary!!

    Nothing not to like.

    Great hosts. They couldn't have been more helpful. Very close to town centre.

    The place was very quaint and a bit tired. Our room was very small and rather tired looking.

    We had a wonderful stay. The Inn is so close to everything you could easily walk to restaurants. The breakfast was delicious and cooked to order. Nicky and Garreth were so accommodating and helpful. We loved our room!

    Ivy Bank is in a great location, has wonderful owners, and has a home away from home feel perfect for holiday in The Lake District.

    The key holder was a bit too big, making it cumbersome to open the house and room door.
