Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 8
Hollywood Guest House occupies a delightful location in this picturesque row of Victorian properties built in the late 1800's, located only a short easy walk from the centre of Windermere Village. The village with its delightful individual shops, bistros and restaurants is an ideal central location for touring the Lake District National Park and is only a few minutes stroll from Holly-Wood Guest House. The Lake District is a magnet for tourists over an ever-increasing tourist season and a little further in the other direction brings you to the lake at Bowness Bay where steamers ply its length and visitors can enjoy various activities and take the ferry across the lake to Sawrey/Hawkshead.

Built around 1890s as a Victorian gentleman's residence of immense charm and character and enjoys really spacious rooms with high ceilings. The accommodation forms an easily managed guest house with six well-proportioned guest bedrooms each with en-suite facilities and served by a comfortable breakfast room.

The guest house has the benefit of unusually spacious separate owners' accommodation which extends to two double bedrooms, shower room, lounge, kitchen and additional storage room. There is also the added advantage of small but delightful gardens to the front and rear as well as private car parking. Acquired by the present owners in 2007 the business has a steady turnover trading up to the VAT level comfortably with much return and recommended trade complimented by the owners' marketing via its own website www.hollywoodguesthouse.co.uk and websites such as www.booking.com which is complimented with an impressive 5 star rating on Tripadvis
