Great Place to Stay - Rating 5/5

This is a great place to stay. Perfectly located and the rooms have all you need. Graham was a great host and happy to help you with anything local. We didn't meet Alison while we were there but her breakfast in the morning was great.This was our first time staying here while in the area but it will not be our last.

Amazing little B&B - Rating 5/5

My partner and I spent 2 nights at this lovely B&B over the Easter weekend, what a great find!The room was very cosy and clean, Graham was a great host and always happy to help and give you advice on where to eat or where to go for a nice walk. The B&B is perfectly situated for wandering around Windermere & Bowness. The breakfast was lovely, very well cooked and prepared.We will 100% be back here for our next weekend get away. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Wonderful accommodation - Rating 5/5

I can truly recommend The White Rose. We spent a delightful weekend there with my husband in September 2017. We felt very welcome from the very first moment. Graham is an amazing host! He's very kind and his English breakfast is absolutely perfect! He also gave us a few very useful tips, as we were in Windermere for the first time. We really enjoyed our stay. We would like to thank you Graham once more! Best wishes to you and your family. xx Eva and Jan

Lovely B & B - Rating 5/5

Had a really good time, the breakfasts were the stuff of legend.Very helpful with suggestions on where to visit, nothing too much trouble.Beds very comfortable, and location a 2 minute walk from the restaurants and bars in town (Windermere).Parking was difficult on the main road (down to time of year I am sure) but found out that you can park in the Pay and Display over the road for 3 days at £15.Highly recommended.

Had a lovely weekend stay at the white rose over the bank holiday weekend. Parking is not a problem there's a pay and display car park over the road and limited free spaces on the road itself. The rooms are clean and cosy. Breakfast was top notch, would definitely stay again and recommend it to anyone.

We had a great time at the White Rose, Graham gave us a warm welcome and had some nice suggestions for day trips. The breakfast was great and the room (3) was quite big, good bed and hot shower.

Great base for a walking weekend. - Rating 5/5

My partner and I had a lovely stay here! It is a Bed and Breakfast guesthouse and I hadn't stayed in one of those before. I had heard that you had to stay out of B&Bs during the day and could only come back at night but at The White Rose, you can come and go as you please at any time of the day or night.The room was clean and comfortable with an ensuing shower room. There was sweets, filter coffee, a variety of tea and squash provided in the room. The room was serviced everyday to a good standard.Breakfast was delicious. It is served between 8:30 and 9:00 each day but you can ask the hosts if you wish to eat outside of this time slot and they will accommodate you. A medley of fresh chopped mango, papaya and berries with freshly squeezed orange juice is served to start with and then a huge cooked breakfast will be served. You will get to specify what you do and don't want on the plate. We are vegetarian so we had veggie sausage and no bacon. I am also pleased to say that all eggs used are free range so this pleased us as vegetarians.The hosts (Graham and Alison) are exceptionally nice people and they were very polite and friendly to us. They also are full of recommendations for sightseeing. This was a real 'cherry on the cake' and thanks to them, we effortlessly were able to plan our days in Windermere and we had a great time! Thank you so so much Graham and Alison;we will stay again!

Lake District stay - Rating 4/5

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at the white rose guest house. The room rate was very reasonable and included breakfast each morning. The room was clean and tidy with an ensuite which although not large was fine with a good shower. Wifi and a TV were also included. The breakfast was very good, the Cumberland sausage especially. The guest house is a couple of minutes walk from the centre of Windermere and from here there are regular bus services and a train stop for longer excursions. Bowness was a highlight and I would recommend spending at least a day there. This is where most of the cruises on the lake depart from and is a very nice little town. My wife and I will definitely return to this wonderful little part of the world a number of times in the future and the white rose guest house will be our first port of call. Excellent service and value.

I booked the White Rose as my husband was working in the area but that got cancelled and it ended up as a birthday treat.The White Rose was very comfortable and Alison &Graham were very good hosts.The breakfast was excellent and the room very comfortable and would certainly return if we come back to The Lakes.If I had 1 comment to suggest - when you are washing the towels and bedding please do not use scented washing powder/softener - if you can sensitive skin it can irritate it especially the towels and the scent remains on your clothes.Hope you did not mind me saying.

Christmas 2015 at the White Rose - Rating 5/5

1/4/16. My daughter and I spent Christmas Eve through Boxing Day with Allison and Graham at the White Rose. It was a most enjoyable experience. Our room was decorated for the holidays, including twinkling lights and tasty treats. It was an unexpected and delightful welcome. I have never met more gracious and considerate hosts.I am certain anyone would enjoy their stay. They are going through a bit of a remodel, but that, I feel, is less important than the overall experience. Great location in the Lake District.


Hi it was wonderful meeting you.We are so pleased you enjoyed your time with us.we are at the moment having new radiators fitted and the windows renovated.We have managed to redecorate two ready for new season.Hope you had a safe journey home.Take good care.Graham and Alison.

Graham and Ali make you feel so welcome as soon as you arrive, they take the time to discuss your plans and help if you need, sharing their local knowledge. The rooms are very cosy and extremely clean. The heating was on all the time and rooms were lovely and warm. Breakfast was AMAZING. We've stayed in a lot of B and Bs and the breakfast here is by far the best.

Fantastic! 10 out of 10!- Rating 5/5

The White Rose is one of the best guest houses we have stayed in!***highly recommended from London***The owners have really mastered good customer service. The variety of 'little extras' that were left in our room was generous and thoughtful;catering for all different tastes i.e. hot chocolate, biscuits, tea, coffee, decaff coffee, sweets and a selection of mint, green and fruit teas. I was particularly impressed with the jar of fresh filter coffee..and there was more...The bedroom was nicely decorated with a modern yet independent finish, very cosy. The room was clean and the bed exceptionally comfortable, we had a great nights sleep zzzzz. I could tell the headboard was new and also the bed covers. We had flat screen TV and Wifi facilities together with plenty of sockets. The en-suite bathroom was also very clean.Breakfast! Wow! You both should win a breakfast award if you haven't already done so. The ingredients were obviously of high quality, I would presume of local produce. It was cooked and presented to perfection in my opinion 10/10! I would say one of the best full-English that I have eaten! We were asked the night before how we would like our eggs cooked and had a lot of choice of what we wanted to be included in our breakfast for the following morning - again exemplifying the owners attention to customer satisfaction. The breakfast room was again decorated with warm colours and was cosy and friendly. It was also very light and we did not feel as cramped in as we have done in previous establishments.Both owners are friendly and approachable. You can tell they care very much about their guests overall experience.What a wonderful visit. If this was 'four in a bed' we would have overpaid. Alex Polizzi would be impressed! We wish you continued success in your business.Ps the Lake District is a great place to stay! We are looking forward to coming back next year to stay at the White Rose in Windermere.Thank you again for making the stay extra special!

Perfect stay - Rating 4/5

We have just returned from a overnight stay in this lovely guest house in the beautiful Windermere. We were attending a wedding in the close by (10 minutes away) Langdale Chase hotel.Greame the owner was more than helpful pointing out places of interest, ensuring we knew how to get back after the wedding and providing numbers for taxis.The guest house was well positioned. It was a 10 minute walk to the lovely marina which was busy because the sun was out. The rooms were very clean and provided every thing you would have needed. Breakfast was delicious, probably one of the best I've had, all locally sourced and the best start to the day especially after the couple of drinks we had enjoyed at the wedding !!!

If you go to the Lakes you must stay with Alison and Graham,what a lovely welcoming couple. Excellent breakfast,comfortable,large room (room 3). Couldn't do enough for us from texting the day of our arrival to say they were looking forward to meeting us to recommending their favourite places to eat in the area and telling us how to get about to the local attractions. So accommodating throughout and you can see they work so hard to make it a nice place to stay. If we go to the Lakes again,we'll re-book!

We enjoyed our stay at White Rose, great hosts, excellent breakfasts. Our room was comfortable and clean, a good bed which meant good night sleep. Our only problem was wifi, it did not work correctly, we found it difficult to get a connection, we mentioned it but it did not improve, we were forced to go to a local cafe to use there wifi. Wifi was confirmed in our booking therefore it should have been working correctly.


Hi David.Glad you enjoyed your stay with us.We did tell you the WIFI was not working correctly on arrival and that we would be connecting to BT fiber optic on Sept 8th.It has been sporadict for a while hence the change in supplier.Graham and Alison.

Midweek stay - Rating 5/5

well what a lovely little place. We have just stayed at the White rose for a short midweek break. We received a text message on our day of arrival from Graham and Alison which was a lovely welcoming touch and upon arrival Graham checked us in, got a feel for our situation and then made some recommendations of where to go and eat. He was extremely nice and has the running of the b&b down to a tee. The accomodation itself as a lovely quaint house in keeping with the style of the Lake District offering all the warmth and homeliness you could hope for. The bedroom had everything you needed from towels to hangers and even came with some local mint cake which was a lovely touch. Breakfast was delightful and catered to your tastes. All in all this was a wonderful place to stay and we will without doubt be returning in the near future.

My family and I stayed at the white rose for four nights. The rooms are very nicely done up in terms of interior design. Each room had a different colour theme.Our hosts Graham and Alison were very friendly and funny. They always checked on us to see if we ever needed anything. Graham would also take time to have a chat with us while we were having breakfast every morning.Our daily breakfast is cooked to order, hence our food will always arrive hot and fresh. And order slip will be given to us the day before so we can choose what items we wish to eat the following morning, for our English breakfastI would recommend others to come by and stay at the white rose. It felt like home because the warm hospitality by our hosts.

Radiators and wifi - Rating 3/5

The room was a bit small but it was clean and comfortable. However, we felt very cold during the middle of the night as the radiators got turned off at around 11 everyday. There was no wifi in the hotel as there is no internet connection on my phone in the lake district it was important for us to at least have internet access in the hotel. We managed to get wifi in the nearby cafe.


Thank you for your review.All reviews are helpful in giving us your input for us to learn ways to improve.We are only a guest house and not a hotel so some rooms will be on the small side.the heating comes on 3 times a day going off at eleven pm every night.However we do supply in all rooms extra duvets and pillows these are in the top of the wardrobes.The WiFi was only sporadic for a day as talk talk rectified the problem.I am so sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us.Graham and Alison.

one in a million - Rating 5/5

the white rose is actually one in humdreds of guest houses in the windermere area. But to us it is "one in a million". while we were there the weather was quite dank (cold and wet) but the white rose was a warm shining haven in cumbria. I have two example to share which were iconic. 1) like all guest houses they supplied cappuccino satchets in the room, but here you also get those lovely biscuits plus chocolate flakes to shake on your coffee. 2) all the eggs i saw on the full english plates in the morning were cooked ideally for me , they have really perfected the cooking temperature and timeHowever,my final comment is saved for last but by no means least. You just have to meet "my sweet caroline"(as documented musically by Neil Diamond).This is a classy lady who has a warmth and love that came to light when she enthusiastically explained the attractions of Kendal and Keswick to us. You could easily walk past the white rose at the bottom of broad street, but once you have stayed with "my sweet"caroline, you will never just walk past it again.

Everything we'd hoped for! - Rating 5/5

We recently had a wonderful stay at The White Rose in Windermere. Although we were only there for one night, we would definitely come back again! The room was clean, quiet and comfortable, and the bathroom was modern. Caroline was very helpful and welcoming, and we thoroughly enjoyed her breakfast! Thankyou for a lovely stay!

Friendliest B&B in Windermere! - Rating 4/5

We stayed for three nights over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend at the White Rose and really enjoyed ourselves. The friendly welcome, the location, the early check-in available, the huge and delicious breakfasts (loved the cafetiere's on tap!) and the extra little finishes to make it a great trip were all there. Thank you Caroline!
