Pretty Victorian B&B in a quiet central location of Windermere. Aromatherapy massage available. Discounted use of a local leisure club. Families welcome, free parking & WiFi.
Ivy Bank is an attractive B&B in Windermere and dates from Victorian times, having been originally built in the 1890s with locally sourced Lakeland slate. Located away from the main road in a quiet area of the town but close to all village facilities and travel links. Guests to our bed and breakfast will enjoy the informal feel of our accommodation, as well as our hearty breakfasts. We have traditional Cumbrian fry ups, fish and vegetarian alternatives.
Ivy Bank B&B has five en-suite guest rooms, with four double rooms and one family room. All have individual décor, and we have two superior rooms complete with antique furniture and seating areas. Each guest room is equipped with a flat screen TV and a DVD player, hair dryer, a radio/alarm clock, a drinks tray and complimentary toiletries. Guests are welcome to bring their own DVDs or select one from our library. Free wireless internet is available, free parking and secure storage for bikes.
Within thirty minutes walk of Ivy Bank B&B there are several excellent viewpoints, including the view from Orrest Head, which inspired Wainwright to go on and write his famous pictorial guides to the Lake District. Other walks to be found within easy reach will take you to School Knott, Brant Fell, Biskey Howe, as well as the tumbling waterfalls at Millerground, Sherrifs Walk and the Lake Shore. You can take boat trips on Lake Windermere, visit The World of Beatrix Potter, The Aquarium of the Lakes and many other attractions while you're staying with us.
For added relaxation you should book yourself in for a massage. Performed onsite by a qualified masseuse and aromatherapist, you can choose the time for your treatment, although it is advisable to book in advance.
