More about Bay House Lake View

Loved Bay House

by TripAdvisor Member alisonharris123

I stayed at Bay house for 3 nights, it was in a beautiful location, opposite lake windermere. It was a really comfortable stay and we felt welcomed, everyone was friendly. The owners really helped us by taking the time to tell us about all the best places to see.Our room was clean and spacious, really impressed!! Also, the breakfast was delicious.
I'd stay there again :)

Treated like second rate guests

by TripAdvisor Member JandM_edinburgh

We booked the Bay House Lake View guest house based on its popularity rating on this website. We were impressed with all the good reviews and having viewed the owners website we thought it looked really nice and modern. We booked 1 night there for my 30th birthday, and at the request of my partner we were allocated Room 2 "our best room" which has a bay window and views of the lake. I was really looking forward to staying there in the "best room" however upon arrival we were shown to Room 3 which is only just big enough for a double bed and wardrobe. It is very small by any standard and has only a single window. In my opinion the decor and furnishings looked tired and in need of upgrading (coffee rings on bedside table!), particularly the carpet which was also in need of a good hoover behind the bed - yuck! I asked Sandra if there was some mistake since we were told we would be in Room 2 next door, however she informed me that we had been moved due to a problem with the shower in Room 2. I thought she could have informed us of this without us having to ask, but thought it was fair enough if the shower was broken.
We went out for a lovely meal and a wander, and returned to discover the curtains in Room 2 closed when they weren't before, and lo and behold we could hear voices coming from the room. Turns out Sandra had actually let out the room to another young couple, we saw them at breakfast the next morning. I don't know whether the shower story was true or whether we had just been bumped to another room for some other reason. I felt like we were treated like second class guests - we asked for the best room because of my 30th birthday but obviously this meant nothing to the owners.
The guest house in general is very clean and tidy and the breakfast room lovely and the breakfast itself was fab, but based on our experience and the 'tired' decor and furnishings in Room 3, we will not be returning.

excellent b&b

by TripAdvisor Member lee2828

An excellent b&b, we have just returned home after a brilliant few days in Windemere (wish we were still there!) We stayed at the bay house the last time we visited the lakes in october 2006 just after Colin and Sandra had taken over management which was a lovley stay, and when we returned this year the rooms had been revamped but the hospitality was just as good. Sandra and Colin are a fantastic couple who are both friendly and professional whilst still giving you your own space and privacy to be able to get on with your stay, they are available to give advice on the local area and have experienced most things themselves. Before we discovered the bay house we had stayed in various b&b's in the lake district but none would compare to this, with the views of lake windemere from the room and the excellent central location we would not stay anywhere else! P.S the breakfast's were lovely and they also catered for vegitarian's.


by TripAdvisor Member alancashire

We stayed at the Bay House for 3 nights and we consider it a very good B & B. Sandra and Colin were welcoming and were able to advise us on local gems to visit which we found helpful. The room had a view over lake Windermere and we found it to be pleasent and tranquil. We would definately reccomend this lovely little guest house.

A Guest House With Personality

by TripAdvisor Member Cassiecanada

Our 4 day stay in the Lake District was spent at this fabulous little guest house. The current owners bought and refurbished this 3 storey building about 8 years ago. Most rooms have views of Windermere Lake. Ideal location as within walking distance of the pier, information center, spas, shops and many eating places and pubs. Also, within a few miles of all the other popular places in the Lake District. All rooms are ensuite. We choose this guest house as they accept animals. The owners, Colin and Sandra are exceptionally friendly and bring a certain warmth this 6 room guest house. They are well known in the community and believe in working together for the good of all. We would not hesitate to stay with them again.

Great location and Great hosts

by TripAdvisor Member andy9dr

The bay house was a great location and was within a stones throw from Lake Windermere. As soon as we got there we were greeted by Sandra and Colin, we were told about the town and where the best places to eat and also where to go through the day. The room was quite modern and had all facilities required. Also the breakfast was a large full English breakfast which set you up for the day. I have recommended the bay house to all of my friends and family as its a perfect place to take a short break.

Review from George

by TripAdvisor Member TheHortons

We have just arrived back from a lovely stay at this hotel. Considering the price you pay and it's location, it is extremely good value for money. There aren't many other B&Bs offering such a great view of the lake.

We stayed in the family room with our son, who has had a great time and both Sandra and Colin were extremely friendly and helpful.

Clean rooms and an excellent location. Couldn't fault it really and so would reccommend this to anyone looking for a good B&B in Bowness.

Friendly place to stay

by TripAdvisor Member Laurenceh

Like other reviewers we booked this B&B after reading comments on TripAdvisor, and we're glad we did. The B&B has a lived-in feel, and this means that not everything is brand new. It works well as a base - who would want to spend all their time in the room? But the real strength of this place is its location. It literally is 2 mins away from the lake, shops and places to eat. The owners Sandra and Colin are friendly, chatty and knowledgeable, and provided excellent recommendations for places to eat as well as all-manner of tourist and walking information. And it was good value, too!

Happy hols

by TripAdvisor Member 2elsie

We rang the tourist info and was given the Bay House as a recommended place to stay. When we arrived we were delighted to be met by a lovely obliging couple who gave us a warm welcome. We were pleased to see that our room had a lovely view of the lake and was very near to all the amenities.

Great Place

by TripAdvisor Member HannahAndrew917

We stayed at the Bay House for 2 nights in May and it was great. Colin and Sandra are wonderful hosts and very helpful, they even played with our 2 year old during breakfast so we could eat in peace. They had lots of ideas for places to see and things we could do and places to eat in the evening.
The Bay House is well extremely well located, it’s less than a minute away from restaurants and pubs but set in a very quite location.
The room was great with a lovely over Lake Windermere and very clean.
Overall this was a perfect break and we would love to go back.
