Positive Reviews

Quiet spot for Bowness and lake beauty.

Guests loved the location of The Fairfield, which is one or two minutes walk away from the restaurants, shops and bus stops of Bowness, close to Windermere Village, well-located for taking a cruise on Le Windermere, and in general, a perfect base for enjo

Warm hosts and atmosphere.

The friendly hosts´create a great, warm atmosphere thanks to their lovely service, and you can even take your dogs along to enjoy the trip, too.

Lovely boutique accommodation.

The B&B itself and the rooms are beautifully decorated, with each room being very clean, comfortable and some offering spa baths, while the garden, and the communal sitting area/bar were found to be very relaxing.

Negative Reviews

Rooms a bit cramped to some.

A few people who stayed here found the rooms to be a bit cramped, perhaps due to the wide array of furniture guests found in each.

A wee slog back up the hill.

After the hotel breakfasts or a meal downtown, the uphill return home may be just what you need to work off some Cumbrian delights, but it could be a bit hard for anyone with mobility issues.
