•Smoking indoors in a Bed and Breakfast is illegal in the UK; therefore we do not allow anyone to smoke indoors, even if that person was to smoke at a window, with his/her head poking out of the window. However, we have a porch where people can smoke.

•No candles or tea lights and incense may be burned in our house or bedrooms.

•No hot takeaway food may be consumed in our guest house or bedrooms.

•Guests who stain, damage or break any items must either pay for the cleaning or repairs to make good, or pay for the replacements where the items cannot be repaired.

•Towels and bathmats must not be used to remove make-up or suntanning products, or used to clean tea, coffee or other drinks spillage that will stain them. Please tell us right away if you have sustained any damage or spillage, and we will try to sort it out. In particular, if you have stained towels, linen, furniture or carpets, please tell us immediately so that we can try our best to clean up the spillages and reduce the damage.

•Our guest house is not suitable for rowdy or drunken parties, as people come to stay with us because we offer peace and quiet, so please do not choose our guest house to stay in if you prefer party-type accommodation.

•Guests may not book a room and expect more than the number of people booked into that room to occupy it. For example, please do not book a double room for two adults, but arrive with a child, baby, or another adult to share it. Note that we do not accept children under the age of 8 years.

•We do not accept children under 8 years of age. Children are considered adults in terms of taking up a bed space and pricing.

•Guests may not book a room and then swop the occupancy of that room with undeclared guests. For example, if someone books a room for two nights, we would expect that same person to stay for both nights. We would not expect that person to stay a night, and then leave the next day only to have a different person stay the next night.

•Please respect our home as you would your own. For example, if you have muddy boots when you come into the house, please either ask for a plastic bag from us to put your boots in or leave them in the vestibule instead of traipsing about the house in those muddy boots.

•We have a private car park that is only for the use of our guests only for the duration of their stay with us. If you are going to meet up with family or friends while you are in the Lake District, please do not expect that your family or friends will be able to park in our car park whilst visiting with you. The same goes for our guest lounge. The guest lounge is only for the use of guests staying with us. It is not for the use of guests of guests.

I stayed with Janz this past weekend on a weekend trip with my mom. She and her husband were beyond helpful and friendly. Everything was clean and breakfast was delicious. The view is incredible and it felt very safe and comfortable. I would highly recommend staying with them!

Response from Janz:
Hi Callan What a pleasure it was to meet and host you and your mum. We enjoyed every minute of it and are glad you found our place a delightful place to stay. Although our house is such a short walk to Lake Windermere and the attractions and amenities of the town centre, we are indeed located in a safe and quiet neighbourhood away from its traffic, noise and busyness: as you know, one can literally hear a pin drop in our home! Please do thank your mum for us for her kind invitation to visit your family should we ever fly out to the States. We hope that we will have the opportunity to meet and host you and your family again. God bless.

The lodge is located uphill with 5 minutes walking distance to the busiest area of town. Very easy to get around and the lake view is WONDERFUL. The host is very friendly to tell you tips to visit the area. The bed is very comfortable. Will book again if I visit Lake District again.

Lovely accommodation! And the host is very friendly ! The breakfast is also so mouthwatering! But maybe the bathroom is too crowded. Anyway, it's a wonderful experience.

Janz received us in the morning and was kind enough to allow us to leave the luggage earlier to our check-in time. Location wise it is difficult to walk to the lodge as is located on top of the hill and if you have booked a normal room then the room and toilet spaces have to be compromised though it looked slightly bigger in the picture.But it was clean and neat.

Response from Janz:
You were welcome to leave your luggage, Deepthi. Our hilltop location with the windows of the Lodge facing the Lake is why we have lovely Lake and fell views, which you were also able to enjoy from your room. The Blue Room is a standard double room and does have a small shower en-suite as mentioned in the room description. Photos of the room and en-suite were taken by an airbnb photographer, which would have depicted the room as it is. Thank you for saying that our accommodation was 'clean and neat'.

We are a couple with grown up children. My husband is Scottish and I am Singaporean. We enjoy the countryside, and love the peace and quiet here at Blenheim Lodge where we live with our rescued Pyrenean Mountain Dog.

You can see some photos of our current home, Blenheim Lodge, which we enjoy sharing with our B&B guests, on our Profile page. These are photos of our main public rooms, our outside areas, and some of the amazing views that can be seen from them. More photos of the bedrooms themselves can be seen on our Space or Bedrooms listings.

One of us can speak a little Mandarin, a little Cantonese, a little Hokkien, a little Teochew and a little Toisan.
