We stayed for two nights with breakfast and dinner on one night. The hotel was located about ten minutes drive outside bowness. First impressions inside were that it was cosy as it had a real fire and comfy sofas. Our room was a good size overlooking part road part field but was very quiet, just bird noise. There was lots...

Our 5th stay in this lovely hotel, in one of the most unspoilt parts of the Lake District. We joke that the DD is a Comfy Slipper Hotel, a little scuffed and worn put too loved to part with. The setting is idyllic, lovely grounds, beautiful views, and a pleasant 10 minute drive into Bowness in some breathtaking countryside. The... More

Just had another weekend at the Damson Dene and how lovely it was. We haven't been there for about 4 years and enjoyed this trip more than ever before. We took our little Border Terrier with us this time and the staff could not have been more helpful and accomodating to our needs. We were made to feel very welcome... More

Another stay at the hotel. After a bad start to 2015 we had to change dates twice, June was amazing, she wasn't phased about us troubling her & was more than helpful. All the staff are excellent, always pleasant and helpful. Hope chef is better now, in spite of this the meals on both nights were very good, served quickly,... More

Booked a 2 night stay here with a Groupon voucher to celebrate a birthday. Given room 36, which has a jacuzzi bath, unfortunately this did not work, neither did the light over the sink. Everything else in the room was fine. We ate in the hotel the first night, and both had lamb shanks, which were beautiful. The service for... More

This was our 6th visit to this hotel. It has a peaceful location in a lovely setting. The hotel has plenty of charm with its warm cozy lounge and homely bar which overlooks the pond. The food surpasses what you would expect from a 3 star hotel with a lovely breakfast and a quality evening meal. I have to mention... More
