About us

We are Mark and Emma and we own and run this lovely B&B. We are relaxed and friendly hosts and enjoy helping towards making your break as relaxed and enjoyable as it can be. The house itself is fabulous. Historic, characterful and romantic; and we are located conveniently close to Windermere town and Bowness and the lake. We're sure you'll love your stay.

Please Note: From 1 January 2019 Bookings are on a room only basis. However, complementary fresh coffee, tea and breakfast pastries will be available in our lounge.

We will be back. Thank you to our hosts Mark and Emma

We had a wonderful 3 night stay here this week! ... made our break away in the Lakes truly perfect and we can't wait to visit again!

The design of the guest house is perfect because the owner's living quarters are completely separate to the guests so you feel you can come and go without interrupting them and feel like you have your own privacy.

Running The Coach House B&B is a pleasure and suits our relaxed and friendly manner. We keep the house to very high standards for presentation and cleanliness, and food is always top quality. We also enjoy the Lake District, plus meeting people from all over the world, our family life, cooking and baking, walking and running, painting and artistry. We live in the house too, in separated ground floor living quarters which is really convenient!

The Coach House

The Coach House is set on the edge of woodland and the outskirts of Windermere. It is almost midway between to town of Windermere, and Bowness (by the lake) so the ideal location for almost any break in the Lake District.

The house itself is a genuine former coach house built in 1890 from local Lakeland stone. Many of the original features have been retained, including panelled and round windows, roof beams and roof mounted weather vane. There is also a Juliet balcony in our romantic room overlooking mature woodland and church grounds.

The house allows us to live in and provide a lovely and attractive and comfortable environment in which to stay. This is appreciated by many of our guests who review us directly and on TripAdvisor where we have a 5 rating, and booking.com where we have great ratings also.

When you stay we hope you find us welcoming and friendly, and love your room too. We keep the accommodation spotlessly clean, well presented and complimentary snack breakfasts.

Downstairs we have a cosy, guest reception area and a light, airy breakfast room/conservatory where a choice of breakfast is served between 8:00am to 9.30am daily. 

Book Direct

We provide our best deals by phone but you can also book direct via our availability calendar.

When you book direct your details are safe and you may still cancel with 5 days advance notice.

We welcome telephone enquiries and will be happy to answer any queries or take your reservation over the telephone.

The Brierley's
