Fir Trees Bed & Breakfast was built in 1888 and still holds some of its original features such as the pitch pine staircase. Our bed and breakfast is just a short stroll from amenities within Windermere, Cumbria and is an ideal place to stay while exploring the Lake District National Park.
The B&B offers 9 guest rooms that are all en suite and each has a TV and tea/coffee making facilities. All of the guest rooms have been lovingly decorated and furnished to a high standard to ensure guests are comfortable and relaxed during their stay. There are fine antique furnishings, wonderful prints and immaculately clean and tidy.
For breakfast we serve a traditional English breakfast. For those of you wanting something lighter or for vegetarians, we have plenty of alternatives to offer also. We make the breakfasts to order and use locally sourced produce.
Fir Trees Bed and Breakfast is close to the villages which have many restaurants, pubs, exhibitions, a theatre and a cinema. The Lake District area is perfect for walking and cycling. Nearby Keswick is an interesting town worth exploring, alternately why not visit the south and central lakes area where you will find:
Tarn House - A beautiful small lake in the mountains, reputed to be one of the most photographed lakes in all of England. There is a footpath to follow and you can easily walk around the entire lake in one hour, which is well worth doing.
Hawkshead - A lovely small village with Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter associations. Stroll around leisurely. Visit the church on the hill - excellent views of the countryside on a clear day. Stewardson's is a very good shop for both women's and men's clothing. The Queen's Head is a superb pub for lunch or a drink or two. Nearby, in the village of Near Sawrey, is Hill Top, where Beatrix Potter lived. Her house is now a National Trust property and one can go inside and have a look around. Closed Thursdays and Fridays and during the winter. A good pub in between Hawkshead and Ambleside, on a secluded crossroad, is the Drunken Duck.
Grasmere – A pretty village in beautiful setting. William Wordsworth and family are buried in the church cemetery. Dove Cottage, where Wordsworth lived for a while, has been turned into an excellent museum, and is well worth a visit.
