Guest House Windermere



Whether you’re taking in the sights of the Lake District, climbing Orrest Head, visiting Wray Castle or you need to stop in Windermere for any other reason, a good guest house can ensure your trip is as pleasant as possible. Cambridge House provides a friendly welcome, fresh home-cooked breakfasts, and a comfortable rest perfectly positioned in the centre of the village.

About Cambridge House
Owned by Debbie & Dave Lupton since 2004, Cambridge House was built in 1873 as a Gentleman’s residence, giving it a perfect traditional Lakeland style and appeal. However, it’s been updated to incorporate all the conveniences of modern hospitality. There are double, twin, and family rooms, each with an en-suite bathroom, flat screen TV/CD/DVD player, books, games, and complimentary tea and coffee. The comfortable beds and peaceful surroundings can certainly ensure that weary Lake District hikers and family holiday-goers get the perfect night’s sleep.

A perfectly situated guest house in Windermere town centre
Although it’s not overly large, Windemere is busy, lively town with plenty of shops, restaurants & bars that have made it the perfect rest stop for Lake District travellers. Situated right in the middle of it, Cambridge House is only a few minutes away at a leisurely pace. What’s more, a 15-20 minute stroll across the gorgeous surroundings takes you right to Lake Windermere, itself. The popular fells of Orrest Head and School Knot are nearby, too, offering some of the best views of the surrounding countryside you can hope for.

The welcome is always warm
If you prefer to go ahead under your own steam, then you are more than welcome to. However, we are more than happy to help you find your bearings and take advantage of what’s happening in the village and throughout the surrounding communities. We can help you navigate the maps we provide if there’s something, in particular, that you want to see or highlight popular spots you might want to check out. There’s almost always something going on around Lake Windermere, so we can tell you about any events you might not want to miss out on, as well.

Service with a smile
All our guests can wake up to a lovely home-cooked breakfast in our sunny dining room, which sports welcoming floral arrangements that have won us awards from Windermere in Bloom several times. We provide a breakfast of local ingredients from Plumgarths local butchers, Free Range eggs, and our local grocer, Dobson’s Fruit & Veg, supporting our local farmers. Guests are more than welcome to stay in the breakfast room if they want a place to work, read, or otherwise relax with a cup of tea or a glass of wine.
