About this Bed and Breakfast

Beautifully presented throughout, The White Rose in Windermere village offers stylish B&B accommodation. In the stunning Lake District, The White Rose is in an excellent location, close to a large number of fine restaurants, inns and specialist gift and antique shops, and only a few minutes' walk from Windermere railway and bus station - with direct links to Manchester Airport and London. The White Rose was built as a private home in 1817, and now offers excellent en-suite accommodation - with free WIFI throughout the house. The Lake District is the largest National Park in the UK and with its towering mountains and the lakes nestling between them, a perfect area to visit - at any time of year! In the surrounding areas, why not explore the pretty Lakeland villages and towns that have captivated visitors for hundreds of years. Enjoy a stroll through bustling Bowness - only a 5 minute drive from the house, where you can take one of the fascinating lake cruises which ply between Ambleside and Lakeside. Spend some time in Grasmere - the home of William Wordsworth - and Grasmere gingerbread!

The White Rose has six smartly furnished en-suite guest rooms. There are three en-suite double bedrooms on the first floor of the house, two of the bedrooms overlook a small courtyard and there is a larger double bedroom at the front of the house. On the second floor of the house, there are two more rooms: Bedroom 4 - which can be either a twin bedroom or a superking double.(Please specify your preference when booking) and Bedroom 5 which is an en-suite double bedroom. We also have one ground floor en-suite double bedroom: Bedroom 6 is accessed via a private entrance at the back of the house and has the same facilities as the other bedrooms. All our attractively styled en-suite rooms have digital TV and DVD player, a well stocked hospitality tray, a hairdryer, clock radio and toiletries. We have Sharps fitted bedroom furniture in all bedrooms except Bedroom 6.
