Just came back from this fabulous boutique hotel in Windermere after a two day break. We opted for the Mini-Suite upgrade deal and were given The Greenburn which was stunning! (as was the huge and super-relaxing bath). I haven't the slightest hesitation in recommending this hotel to everyone: the room was spotless and vast with one of the comfiest beds... More

Me and my partner stayed at the Howbeck in January 2015 and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a Romantic Weekend away. I found the hotel in perfect condition, extremely clean with the staff going out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Thank you for a lovely weekend Andrew and Kinga

After the hectic Christmas period we enjoyed a relaxing couple of days at the Howbeck. This is a lovely and luxurious B and B , offering delightful touches such as the petals , chocolates and wine , arranged temptingly on the bed. The breakfast was tasty, hearty and piping hot and the staff were very solicitous. The area offers the... More

This was perfect for our relaxing break. The comfy bed and spa bath were great, as was food. The little touches like our bottle of wine on arrival after a horrible journey and the spa passes for Old England hotel on a misserable day really made it for us.

Me and my partner stayed for 3 nights for New Year's celebrations. We initially booked for 2 nights but quickly booked a 3rd night on arrival. Perfect location to access both windermere and bowness. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful.

We were booked in the Howbeck by the bride ( our first time in the lakes!) as we were attending her wedding the following day at a different location. From check in to check out all staff were fantastic!! We would highly recommend this hotel and hope to return soon😊 The spa bath was a lovely bonus in our room!
