"Such a cosy room, we've never felt so at home in a guest house!"

Certificate of Excellence 2013 - Trip Advisor

Alison and Wayne would like to thank you for looking at their guest house in Windermere.

Laurel Cottage Windermere is a beautiful Victorian guest house set in its own gardens in a quiet area of Windermere. Built in the 1890s out of local stone it has retained all of its character and charm.

The Bed and Breakfast has views to the front across Queens Park and School Knott and to the rear of Coniston Old Man, Wetherlam, Swirl How and Langdales yet is only a few minutes walk to Windermere village centre or a short stroll to the lake.

Windermere is a great base from which to see the rest of the Lake District, whether it's a walking or cycling holiday you're after or just visiting to enjoy its beauty. If you're cycling we can secure your bikes for you.

The scenic back drop around Windermere makes it an ideal location for weddings; we are conveniently situated within easy reach of the many popular venues.

Our aim is to make you feel welcome and relaxed; our rooms are all individually decorated as you can see on our accommodation page.
