What our guests are saying…

GB – October 2020
“Gareth and Nicky were excellent hosts. Couldn’t have asked for a better B and B for our trip. They were very helpful during our first trip to the Lakes and helped with anything we needed. We will definitely return to Ivy Bank again”

NC – September 2020
“We stayed at Ivy Bank for 5 nights at short notice. Nicky and Gareth were great hosts. Breakfast was lovely and kept us going all day! The room was very comfortable, clean and spacious. We’ve been visiting the Lakes for many years and Ivy Bank definitely didn’t disappoint. Private parking was a real bonus for the area. Loved it and would definitely recommend”

SW – September 2020
“I stayed for 6-nights in room 1, which was perfect for me. Nicky and Gareth made me feel immediately welcome and at ease, with clear and simple procedures in place for COVID-19. Being a short walk to shops and restaurants in both Windermere and Bowness, the location was great. Having private parking at the rear was also helpful, as I had my bike in the car and wanted it out of sight. But best of all, Gareth went to the shop and got almond drink so Nicky could make me vegan porridge each morning plus plant-based margarine for toast”
