Virginia cottage was a lovely place from start to finish very pleasant staff that cannot do enough for you,breakfast was lovely all in all great place
You couldn't get a better location, close to shopping, pubs, restaurants and obviously a Lake, expected a little bit of noise from the pub next door, but heard nothing!! Ate in that pub and one in the town both were excellent.
Small room size - found the ensuite doors difficult - handle kept falling off.
Good parking nearby & excellent Wifi in the room. Spotlessly clean & comfortable room.
great location. Great breakfast. Kind staff.
Perfect location one minute walk into the heart of Bowness. Breakfast was fantastic. Free parking in a car park across the road.
A little old fashioned in places but added to the charm
Welcome Sherry and Biscuits Bathroom Location
I liked the friendliness of staff upon arrival with the additional nice touches such as sherry and biscuits. The room was very warm and comfortable with free WiFi available in all rooms. There was a good selection for breakfast that was excellently cooked (often in B&B's they can be kept warm and overcooked, not this one). The location is ideal close to all pubs, restaurants with free parking
Bathroom was a little dated and cramped.
The location was brilliant, right in the Middle of the town and only a 2min walk to the waterfront. The use of the sauna nearby was also very good. Staff were friendly and happy to help.
ground floor room right on road noisy
Central location, parking easy, breakfast superb
Biscuits, location, shower!!!!
Fantastic B&B, cannot say a single negative thing about our stay. Bowness is a wonderful little village with lots to see and do! Very easy access to beautiful walks with varying difficulty. Will definitely be back!

The friendly host, good breakfast and all the little special touches.

Loved the property, so central for everything. Very comfortable room.
Loved everything from the spotless accommodation to the comfort and welcome from hosts Graeme and Shirley. We have stayed in Bowness regularly for the past 2 years at a variety of places. Virginnia Cottage is superb. Would like to stay here from now on.
