The Kirkwood guest house had evertthing I needed and the owners could not have been more friendly or willing to please. The breakfast was excellent, and the room and everything in it was very clean.Very 'oldy worldy' in a nice quiet location.
Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Made us feel very welcome indeed. The property itself was faultless and spotlessly clean. Would highly reccommend to family and friends. Thankyou for a wonderful stay.
The breakfast was excellent with lots of choice
Old style decoration not to my taste, cream net curtains at windows.
Very homely and friendly. Good breakfasts. Location good for both Windermere and Bowness centres. Recommended and would return.
Paula was great and very helpful. Very good Breakfast Lots to do and see
The host is very nice. Full English breakfast
Lovely guest house, great facilities, wonderfully friendly hosts and conveniently located. Amazing breakfasts too! Would love to return in the future :)
We stayed for 2 nights and couldn't fault neither the place nor the service. It was exactly what we needed for our short break. Many thanks to the owners who are obviously devoting a lot of time and energy to their Guest House.
The attention to detail was amazing and superb breakfast. Very friendly owners and we will be back!
all round very pleasent stay thankyou.
dinning room alittle cramped sorry.
Breakfast delicious, hosts very kind and helpful! Rooms very beautiful and clean, as well as the garden.
Wifi is weak on 2nd floor, but good on ground floor and lounge.
Very clean room Comfortable bed
Friendly staff. Lounge area for visitors to use. Nice toiletries.
The service is very good, the householders are so kind and thoughtful. They offer a very rich and british breakfast which make our accommodation more worthful,they even help us call a taxi when we are leaving.
Very cordial and family-friendly atmosphere. Had a cottage-like ambience that we were looking for. Owners were very warm and helpful and readily helped to source for "halal" food that we needed, and helped to recommend how we could spend our time there, and with the bookings too! Breakfast time made us feel as if we were extended relatives staying over. Warm & informative chats with the owners and fellow residents. Breakfast was definitely the highlight of the stay - wonderful spread that was evidently cooked with pride. My younger kids loved the beds in the nooks with the lower ceiling though the wife and I knocked our heads against the beam a few times! Easy street parking that was readily available and right in front of the guesthouse. Felt safe. Location was actually nearer to Bowness than Windermere but that suited us fine as there were more facilities at Bowness anyway We had a lovely experience. Thank you very much. Will definitely recommend to my friends who would like to travel to the Lake District.
Had the rooms at the top of the stairs but not much choice actually as we needed a quad room, and the owner helped us to lug our huge luggages. Much appreciated.
Great location great hopitality very clean good breakfast
Room and breakfast were very nice. Paula & Richard are very friendly and hepful with local attractions and walking areas. The ground floor room is easy access for luggage and everyday use.
Everything- excellent in every respect! Richard + Paula run a fantastic guest house- breakfasts are second to none and the craic and friendliness come so naturally- thanks, guys! Our room was spotless and there was an en suite (room 2) where you could swing a cat- only joking, but it was a very good size. Our granddaughter left her iPad lead in our room + Richard posted it the next day- again, thanks, guys! We really enjoyed our stay and recommend Kirkwood to everyone!!
Having to leave!
I have to admit that this is the best B&B I ever stayed. The room is cozy with a favorable scent. Hosts are friendly and nice, they gave me a lot of useful information. The breakfast is sooooooo yummy! I love all dishes! Kirkwood is definately the best B&B in lake district. You will regret if you dont choose this one!
Kirkwood - a comfortable experience in keeping with the landscape, the house was built in 1890 and retains charms of this bye gone age. Richard and Pauline are excellent hosts. 10 out of 10. Mervyn (Dublin, Ireland).
Richard and Paula were so friendly! They were always available for a chat! They really helped us make the most of our stay and even gave us ideas and directions on where to go and visit. The room was lovely and comfortable. The food was delicious too!
Richard and Paula. Absolutely wonderful and helpful hosts. Brilliant cooked breakfast. Awesome location.
Nothing. It was just perfect!!
Really lovely couple who ran the place - went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Tasty breakfasts - really accommodating about getting in the things that we wanted. Rooms were immaculate and well stocked with little extras. Can't recommend it enough - would stay again.
