We really enjoyed our stay at Ivy Guesthouse. Darren is a great host, passionate about the area and a good source of knowledge. Great full English breakfasts, with vegetarians accommodated. Comfortable bed and a lovely wood burner going for us in the afternoons. Hawkshead itself is a great place to stay. Quiet and peaceful but with a good grocery shop, 4 fine pubs and a number of other smaller cafes and local businesses. Some of the lakes' best views are walkable from the door.
Very friendly hosts who were willing to do anything to make our stay as good as it could possibly be. Lovely breakfasts and use of the lounge is great compensation where the bedrooms are smaller.
Not really a complaint, more a hint for potential visitors, that potential guests should discuss whether they need one of the larger bathrooms before booking as some shower rooms are very tight.
Great location, friendly staff would definitely stay again :)
Lovely friendly staff who went out of their way to help, really enjoyed our time there Breakfast was great I would go back Thanks
Very helpful , with a fab breakfast
Hosts! Spotless! Hearty breakfast to set you up for the day!
A nice warm welcome by Darren .the room was fabulous .some really touches and the breakfast was first class
Location, friendliness of the staff. Clean Comfortable. Excellent Breakfast.
Although our room was comfortable and well appointed, it was a bit on the small size.
Great location Good breakfasts Room clean with toiletries, tea,coffee, water and biscuits
Room a little small but fine for short stay
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.
