Malcolm was a very friendly host who went out of his way to help us with recommendations and to make sure we got around ok. Breakfast was good and the room was warm and well equipped.
It's a lovely place and in a great location for exploring and walking.
My family had an enjoyable time at Windermere and nearby. It's such a beautiful place even in Winter. Besides being very hospitable and engaging, Malcolm takes time out of his busy work schedule to drive us around Windermere & Ambleside. He told us history and stories about Lake District or himself and also advised on how to explore Windermere etc and the things to do (eg. the awesome GoApe Treetop adventure).
He is indeed a warm, humorous and welcoming host and generous with the food he has at home - literally "bnb" (bed and breakfast)! He provided information and advice regarding London (our next stop) too. We are delighted with his comfortable cottage and highly recommend it! The cottage is in an accessible location too.
Thank you, Malcolm, for making us feel at home and spending time with us.
Malcolm's place is very cozy, quiet, safe and has a convenient location. We were made very welcome during our stay and Malcolm was very kind to give us a ride to the town. We will definitely stay here again if ever coming back!
Our stay with Malcolm was perfect. Malcolm is a lovely host and made us feel very welcome. Hope to return next year too. Gorgeous house, lots of history and a great location... Thanks Malcolm
Malcolm is an excellent host with a wealth of knowledge about the surrounding region. He took us on a walk, helped us plan our days and got us tickets to two Manchester United games!! The house is well located to explore the Lake District. Although small, the room was comfortable and clean with an ensuite. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend anyone to stay here!
It was my first time into the lake district and my first Air BnB experience. It truly was exceptional, Malcolm made me feel welcome from the off. I could not have asked for a kinder more helpful and knowledgeable host in all of Cumbria. Thank you so much, Crossways will be my first port of call every time I come this way.
Malcolm is a very kind and humorous person. We really enjoy the time with him! Thanks a lot for all the helps he offered for us. We would definitely book his house again if we visit Windermere next time! Wish him all the best!
Self employed business man, non smoker, we will not accept smokers, this is non negotiable .
Love travelling & have done so widely & welcome similar travellers.
Lived in the Lake District for 40 years & know the area well, really happy to recomend outdoor activities & can assist with booking, I look forward to welcoming you to Crossways.
