About Southview Guest House

Southview was originally built as a family home in 1844 for the Swainson family, the owners of a local soft drinks business. It became a guest house over 100 years ago but more recently it has been extended and modernised to provide 10 high quality en-suite bedrooms.

The range of rooms available includes a single, two classic doubles and a classic twin. In addition, there are six more luxurious superior rooms, three with spa baths and two with body-jet showers and one larger contemporary four-poster room. Unique to Windermere and unusual for a B&B, we have a indoor heated swimming pool (8m x 4m) open daily from 07:30 -- 18:00. There is also an informal residents lounge and bar and a south-facing patio for those long summer afternoons. The breakfast room includes a conservatory area with tables that enjoy the morning sun. For more information about breakfasts and special dietary requirements, see our breakfast page.

Southview is currently run by Kate and Barry who are keen walkers and moved to the area be to nearer the fells.

Regrettably we do not have the facilities to cater for young children. Please call if you want to bring a child.

We also do not accept pets of any kind (except guide dogs).

Free parking (we can not accommodate large vehicles) and WiFi is available.
