A great, modern b&b at the heart of town.

Number 80 is very new Lakes: contemporary, modern and chintz free with pastel colours and a laid-back atmosphere.

Its aimed at couples more than families and aims for a home-from-home style. Expect modern facilities and lots of privacy.

Location

On a quiet side street running parallel to Lake Road, the main drag through Bowness.

Bedrooms

The four rooms are cosy and fresh with Roberts digital radios and combined TV-DVDs, although bathrooms are small.

Room one is a four-poster room with twin red-leather chairs in a sunny, front-facing bay window. Room three has a tree motif and green furnishings.

My favourite room number four, a cosy brown-and-cream bolthole with a sloping roof and views of the Langdale fells.

Public areas

Smart and modern. The hallway has a self-service fridge and a DVD library for guests to use.

Eating and drinking

Breakfast is served in the sunny, downstairs dining room with orders taken the night before. It's a hearty, cooked affair with free-range eggs and cerelas to start.

All requests are catered for but no dinner.

Service

Homely, no fuss.

Who stays there

Couples, walkers (the owner has a folder of suggested walks).

Price advice

Single occupancy of a double room costs an extra £10; two night minimum stay at weekends.
