Ivythwaite Lodge Guest House

Andrew and Abigail offer a warm welcome to Ivythwaite Lodge, a traditional Lakeland stone and flint guest house in beautiful Windermere. Originally built as a gentleman’s residence in the 1860s, the Lodge offers spacious accommodation with original features and modern conveniences. We have five double bedrooms, two with four poster beds, and one larger bedroom with a super king size bed and the facility for an additional single bed. All our rooms are en suite and four contain baths, with two of them containing indulgent spa baths.

We pride ourselves on our hospitality and offer a varied breakfast menu, served in our elegant dining room warmed in the winter months by a log burner. The favourite choice is definitely our Cumbrian breakfast with locally sourced sausages, bacon and eggs; but we also serve vegetarian and vegan options.

We’re ideally located on a quiet street just off the road between Windermere and Bowness-on-Windermere. Both villages are lively, with plenty of restaurants, pubs and shops; and both are within ten minutes’ walk of the Lodge. We offer a private car park with EV charge point at the rear of the Lodge and there is also plenty of on street parking.

We have a sustainability charter and ask our guests to take a number of steps to limit the environmental impact of their stay with us. We are proud to promote the stunning dark skies of the Lake District and have resources and equipment to help our guests with their stargazing.

Whether the reason for your visit is to take part in all (or some!) of the activities that the beautiful Lake District offers, or whether it is to relax and enjoy the scenery, we hope to welcome you to our Lodge and help you to make the most of your visit.

Andrew and Abigail
