Wonderful Stay
We loved our rooms and the breakfast was delicious. Paula and Richard were very gracious and helpful with our dietary needs. They are in a great location, walking distance to both Windermere and Bowness on Windermere. Highly recommend this guest house!

All-around Great Experience!
I've been to several B&Bs in the Lake District and this was definitely the best experience I've had. The owners are lovely and genuinely tried to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The food was cooked perfectly and the rooms were in great shape. A great location for exploring both Bowness and Windermere.

Kirkwood Guest House, Windermere, Uk
The Kirkwood is a charming house in a perfect location just outside of the centre of town, with very comfortable rooms, and a really personal touch. Paula and Richard couldn't have been nicer and more informative about the area. We only wish we could have stayed a few more days!

Excellent B&b
Spent two nights here with a group of 13 friends and family. Kirkwood Guest House was able to accommodate all of us. Everyone had a great time. The rooms were clean and spacious. The breakfast menu had several options and the food was prepared perfectly. The waffles were the best I have tasted. If I am ever back to Windemere, I will definitely try to book a room here again.

Wedding Reception
Stayed for the weekend as we had booked to see the "Wedding reception" at the Old Laundry theatre (which was excellent). Lovely accomodation with friendly hosts. Nicely located in between Bowness and Windermere. Great breakfast. Definitely recommend.

Friendly And Comfortable Accommodation
We recently stayed 3 nights at Kirkwood Guest House. Hosts Paula and Richard were most warm and welcoming, happy to offer suggestions on places to visit, and careful in catering for dietary needs. The Guest House is set back on the hill above the high street, and is an easy walk to Windermere and Bowness. There are 2 small car spaces on site and plenty of free street parking. We were travelling with 2 adults and a child, and Room 6 (an ensuite family room) was clean and attractive but quite a tight fit with our luggage too. Breakfasts are included and were tasty.

Stott Park Bobbin Mill - Newby Bridge - Museum

Stott Park Bobbin Mill - Newby Bridge - Museum

Distance 6.43 miles (10.29 km)
A working mill built in 1835, Stott Park created the wooden bobbins vital to the spinning and weaving industries of Lancashire. Typical of mills across Cumbria, today you can see industry from a bygone age and watch as bobbins are made using the mill's original machinery. Although Stott Park worked continuously until 1971, it remains almost identical to its Victorian appearance of 100 years ago. With its Victorian machinery originally powered by a waterwheel and steam engine, Stott Park used birch, ash and sycamore to make wooden tool handles as well as bobbins. The mass of belts which fill the building still drive the cutting, boring and finishing machines than turn long thin poles into bobbins. You can watch a bobbin being made, and take it home as a souvenir.
