Welcome to Firgarth Guest House in Windermere
The Firgarth is a Victorian house built in Lakeland stone around 1875, with views to the rear over Wynlass Beck.
Firgarth has the advantage of car parking, and is situated just a short walk from Windermere centre, with its many shops and restaurants and rail/bus station. We make an ideal base for touring, walking or just a relaxing break at any time of year.
Just take a 15 minute walk through ‘Millerground’ to the shores of Lake Windermere or alternatively climb to ‘Orrest Head’ from where stunning views of Lake Windermere and Morecombe Bay can be enjoyed.
There is always much to see and do around Lake Windermere, England's longest lake. You can enjoy pleasure boats on the lake, the World of Beatrix Potter exhibition, the Windermere Steamboat Museum, the Brockhole Visitor Centre, the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway, and the Aquarium of the Lakes.
Bowness and Windermere villages are also worth exploring, with all sorts of interesting shops, and many places to wine and dine yourself.
Further afield, but still within the Lake District National Park, you will find places such as Grasmere (home to William Wordsworth), Rydal, Ambleside, Coniston, Ullswater, Hawkshead and Keswick, each of which has its own unique charm.
Please note: For the comfort and safety of all our guests, our Windermere B&B is a non smoking establishment and we do not provide any outside facilities for smokers. Access Statement available upon request.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Firgarth.
