Guest Accommodation

Guest Accommodation set in the heart of The Lake District, Cumbria


Virginia Cottage has been a Bed and Breakfast for more than 45 years and we make every endeavour to continue the warm and welcoming tradition of the cottage. The building itself is thought to be some 150 years old and was originally two cottages now combined into one. The position of Virginia Cottage is ideal, being a 2-minute stroll to Lake Windermere and surrounded by so many shops and restaurants, and traditional pubs offering a wide variety of locally brewed ales.

Whatever the season the landscape is beautiful. There are lots of places to visit and the small villages in the surrounding areas are very picturesque. This is the place to relax, unwind and enjoy the many attractions of the Lake District. Our wish is to provide quality yet homely accommodation and we will do our utmost to make your stay a memorable one.
