Stayed for 2 nights Friday 5th & Saturday 6th October. Ian and Yana were the perfect hosts and offered invaluable tips and advice of the area. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. The breakfast itself was worth the trip and was certainly substantial, even for a days walking. I will certainly be staying here again when visiting the Lakes. Thanks again Ian & Yana for a fantastic weekend.KeithHertfordshire
My wife, daughter and myself stayed two nights at this wonderful guest house in early November 2012. The room we had was certainly big enough for the three of us with a well-appointed bathroom. It was immediately obvious, upon arrival that Yana and Ian, not only take great pride in their house, but also genuinely enjoy sharing it with others. Our room was immaculate, as was the whole establishment. Yana and Ian were absolutely wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble to them. They made us feel right at home, were helpful in making suggestions of what to do and see and where to eat. Upon returning from a day’s sightseeing we were pleasantly surprised to have been left a gift of muffins and biscuits in our room.
Windermere, the Lakes District and its surrounding towns and villages is a magnificent part of the world. Our time there was made just that little bit more special from having stayed at Holly-Wood Guest House.
