The couple who runs this guest house is not very helpful to their customers. They refused me to bring the 'take away' food into my room. There are no fridge or microwave facilities in the house or those are not allowed to the customers (remember, the nearest restaurant is more than a mile away). There are some funny types of furniture kept in the room, which was outdated or not usable. Only a single light in the room was so bright. If someone walks in the room, they need to bend them self or bang their head on the roof! Overall It was really a disappointment for me.

Benny, we are sorry you did not enjoy your stay at Kirkwood House, we do our up most to ensure our guests enjoy their stays with us so if you are disappointed so are we. However, there are a few points we would like to make.
All the guests houses in Windermere that we know do not hot takeaway food in the rooms as apart from the fact they make the whole house smell, some past guests have dropped food on carpets causing damage. We made this quiet clear on arrival.
The nearest place to eat is the Brookside pub which is 300 yards away and Windermere town has dozens of restaurants and this is under half a mile away as measured on Google maps (6 minute walk) so not more than a mile. Not sure what you meant about funny furniture, there is a bed, a bed side cabinet, a dressing table and a table for the kettle/teas/coffees? This is all standard furniture for a guest house/hotel! There is a single light with a 60 watt bulb and two bedside lamps so not sure about your brightness comment? As you walk in the room the ceiling is 9ft 6 inches from the floor. There is a beam the other side of the room (this can be seen in the pictures of the room when you booked) but not when you walk in the room so not sure how you had to bend!
You say we are not very helpful although we spent 30 minutes trying to book you on a tour a 7:00 am in the morning when we were preparing breakfast for the other guests. I think the only reason you gave us a bad review is because we asked you not to bring back takeaway food. However, we would welcome you back to Kirkwood House in the future
Hope to see you again, kind regards
Richard and Paula
