Hospitality, the breakfast and the location.
The location was right in the middle of Hawkeshead and the four poster bed was right in the middle of the bedroom! Both good locations! The host couldn't do enough for us including advising us to go see the delightful How's Tarn.. A ripper place! The food at one of the local pubs was the best we've experienced in our trip in themUK. This is a super place to stay.
Flat screen TV
Excellent b&b!. Warm welcome from the owner,we were travelling cyclists and nothing was too much trouble,even put his washing line out so we could dry our clothes. Room was fabulous with some really nice touches (chocolates on the bed) Great full english breakfast (bacon the best we have tasted).Have been to Hawkshead many times and this is by far the best b&b.Would recommend to friends and family.
Great location Lovely room with ensuite Fantastic breakfast Great hosts
Warm welcome on arrival and throughout stay Lovely room Pretty village Excellent breakfast with lots of choice Great for dogs
Nothing to dislike
Room 3 was small, OK for 1 night.
Location,food and friendliness. Car parking is very good.
The staff were friendly and accommodating. Always happy to help and advise. Bed was comfy and room just right for us as we had our dog with us and there was room for her bed too. We only stayed the one night (our adult son had a separate room identical to ours) and his too was clean and comfortable. Food was good although the one drawback was having to choose what you wanted the night before (if you wanted a cooked breakfast). We'd go back there if we're in the area again. Very good!
Gravel walk way to the car park at the rear and people walked right past our room so it did disturb our sleep as we went to bed at 10:30 after a long day, other than that everything was fine.
A lovely little guest house with a family atmosphere and friendly staff. In the middle of a beautiful village. Plenty of walking opportunities in all directions.
Everything from the warm welcome, to the comfort and location, with off-road parking. Excellent choice for breakfast, and Darren's local knowledge. Our second stay, and I'm sure we will be back despite a 300 mile journey.
Having to leave.
Just like being at home.
Leaving to go home.
Excellent location, friendly, helpful owner and staff, great breakfast
Room 5, very compact has 4 poster bed, but less than 18 inches either side of it, which for larger people than us, could be difficult.
Very friendly owner and staff.Great breakfasts.
warm welcome on arrival, great breakfast, fabulous room with brilliant facilities, lovely house in a very nice village with great pubs.
There is nothing to dislike.
friendliness and consideration of staff, comfortable accommodation, position in the village
SLIGHT problem with the door of en suite not closing properly
Liked the breakfasts (you completed a form specifying what you wanted the night before, resulting in a prompt serving of cooked breakfast) hospitality great, Darren and Roz very nice and welcoming. Will be recommending this place to friends and family and will certainly return again.
The location was excellent. It was a quaint building wth characterful features. The room was clean, however we stayed in a four poster room which felt a bit cramped. Brilliant breakfast and wonderful hospitality.
We stayed at the Ivy Guest House for two nights over a weekend & from the moment we arrived, both Darren & Roz were extremely welcoming. Our room was very clean & sufficient for what we needed. The Breakfasts were lovely & the service was impeccable. We would highly recommend the Ivy Guest house to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in the Lakes & we hope to return again the near future.
Friendly staff, snow white fluffy towels, comfortable bed again with very clean linen. Good choice of breakfast, guest house ideally placed with access to all of the shops, pubs etc.
Booked last minute and got the last double room left on the ground floor, it was a bit small and from the pictures we would have liked one of the upstairs rooms.
Darren was super, very attentive and helpful.
This adorable B&B has loads of character, from its stately appearance to the sweeping spiral stair in the rotunda to the four-poster bed in my room. It’s very comfortable, with a nice sitting-room and dining room and a satisfying Full English Breakfast. The staff were obliging and helpful, even finding a secure place (in the shed out back) for my bicycle. It’s centrally located on the main drag in Hawkshead, a small village with a good central location in the South Lakes. For dining options, you’re limited to one of three pubs in the village. But it’s very quiet, idyllically scenic, and peaceful.
They might think about cleaning or replacing the carpet in Room #2.
Loved the hospitality, friendly staff, lovely location and great breakfasts.
Room was a bit small and wifi was not working but neither of these was a big problem. My main complaint was that the shower was just a shower attached to the bath so was a bit awkward to have a shower.
