May Cottage Bed & Breakfast

May Cottage B&B is warm & welcoming, quiet and comfortable. It’s just five minutes’ walk to Lake Windermere, and even closer to the village shops, cafes, bars, and restaurants of Bowness. The perfect place to relax, explore and enjoy the beautiful English Lake District.

 

The English Lake District, World heritage Site

May Cottage is a traditional Bowness-on-Windermere B&B, right in the heart of the English Lake District. The Lake District was given world heritage status in 2017. From Bowness you can experience the superb lake and fell-side scenery, visit historic houses and attractions, and enjoy the outstanding restaurants, pubs and cafes.

Welcome

Our aim at May Cottage B&B is to make our guests feel totally at home so they can really relax and enjoy Bowness, Windermere and the Lake District in their own way. We will always be on hand to offer help and advice if needed.

We are Joan and Simon, and we have been running May Cottage since August 2018. Since the 1990’s we have been holidaying in the Windermere area, so it has always been an ambition to live in the Lakes. Our aim at May Cottage is to make our guests feel totally at home so they can really relax and enjoy Bowness, Windermere and the Lake District in their own way. We will be on hand to offer help and advice if needed. The few changes we have made are to ensure all the rooms are really comfortable and the breakfasts always satisfying. Receiving good reviews is rewarding, but so is a broad smile at breakfast.

The History of May Cottage

Our 1860 Victorian home is constructed from local stone and Burlington slate. It is a fine example of a ‘gentleman’s residence’, built and purchased as the Lake District became a fashionable destination for Victorians, particularly after 1847, when the railway reached Windermere. Many of May Cottage’s lovely original features have been maintained, including Victorian bedroom fireplaces, coving & skirting, the porch, and a stained glass window. May Cottage has been a Bed & Breakfast for over 30 years

May Cottage today

The key to the design of May Cottage B&B is to keep the balance between maintaining the Victorian building whilst offering the comfort today’s guest requires. All rooms at May Cottage are designed for comfort. We start with a quality mattress on a good bed, for a great night’s rest. All our rooms have SuperKing beds, which are 6 feet wide. Two of the rooms can also be set up as two singles. Rooms are double glazed with individually thermostatically controlled radiators, so you can have the level of warmth you want. A pressurised boiler/hot water system means hot showers or baths are available morning and night. All rooms have tea and coffee making facilities.

Set yourself up for a great day in the Lakes

Breakfast at May Cottage is a relaxed, unhurried time. Over a choice of cereals, fruit, yoghurt and pastries, plus a cooked to order traditional breakfast, you can plan the day ahead or discuss the adventures of yesterday. We can cater for most dietary requirements – as long as we know in advance. It is particularly important to let us know about any food allergies or intolerances. Simply ring on 015394 46478 at least 24 hours before you arrive.
