Visit Britain 4 stars.


Kenilworth is a grand 4 star (Visit Britain) Victorian Guest House built in 1896 and is centrally located in the popular Lake District town of Windermere. Many period features have been retained, such as the tiled floor and stained glass in the entrance porch and the grand pitch pine staircase. However, under our ownership the house has been completely refurbished and redecorated to offer warm and welcoming bed and breakfast accommodation.

We are proud of our latest Visit Britain Quality Assessment report - please click on the link on the Home Page of our own web-site to view.

All of our bedrooms are en-suite and all rooms are centrally-heated and double-glazed. We have six bedrooms in total and can now offer our spacious king-size double, two doubles, one twin, one family and one single room. All of our bedrooms have the usual facilities - fluffy towels, well stocked refreshment tray, flat screen digital colour tv, hairdryer, alarm clock and wineglasses. Our single room also has its own DVD player. Please do click through to our own web-site to view photos of all of the bedrooms, and find out lots more information about things to see and do in the beautiful Lake District.

Unusually we have retained our spacious ground floor guests' lounge with maps and guides to help plan your visit, flat screen digital colour tv and DVD player.

Hearty breakfasts are cooked to order and include locally made Cumberland sausage and free-range eggs delivered from the local farm, with lighter or vegetarian alternatives of course (meat and non-meat products are cooked and served separately.) There is also a selection of cereals, grapefruit, fruit juice, fresh toast and a plentiful supply of tea, coffee or herbal infusions.

For everyone's safety and comfort we are completely non-smoking throughout. We have some private off-road parking, with free parking on Holly Road.

A warm welcome awaits!

Please note, that because we do everything ourselves and do not employ staff or send our laundry out, we do not accept bookings for just one night due to the workload involved.

Rates for children/under-occupancy-please enquire.
