2014-15  Breakfast Award – a highly coveted award denoting quality and choice of produce, cooking and presentation – Visit Britain.

In May 2009, we were delighted to receive the award “Bed and Breakfast of the Year” in the Cumbria Tourism Awards.  A total of nineteen Bed and Breakfasts throughout the county entered this category and we were chosen as winners from a final shortlist of three.  During the judging process we were assessed with an overnight stay from a Mystery Shopper and achieved an overall score of 97%.

“The bedroom.  It was exquisite and stunning on entry and went well beyond what a customer would expect from even a 5 star B&B” Mystery Shopper – April 2009  (Referring to our Queen Anne king-size four poster en-suite – Room 7)

“The experience of staying at this B&B was one of exceptional quality” Mystery Shopper – April 2009


We were proud to be finalists for Bed and Breakfast of the Year in England’s Northwest Tourism Awards 2009.

Storrs Gate House has been awarded a prestigious VisitBritain 5 Star grading for outstanding Lake District bed and breakfast accommodation in Bowness-on-Windermere; has also been voted one of the top five B&Bs in the UK by readers of Period Living and Traditional Homes Magazine and were selected as the National Prize Draw Winner venue by the Tourist Information Centre “Where to Stay Guide” in 2005.

Shame there isn't a 6 star rating as it deserves this.
