We stayed last year over the Easter bank holiday weekend. The hotel is perfectly located. A nice, 2min stroll away from the town, restaurants, cafes, shops and the Lake Windermere Boat Cruises. Free parking which was brilliant - a lot of hotels don't have the space and allowed us to drive there straight from work. Friendly welcome from the owners... More

We booked this place as a last minute get-away - and we are very glad we did. A few reviews mention the steep hill - it is but really its a great location being quiet, yet 2 minutes walk right into the centre of Bowness. We got a warm welcome from the manager?/owner? a really nice chap, and nothing too... More

Very impressed that this last minute booking was as lovely as it was. Extremely comfortable, well equipped rooms, and very good breakfast. The staff were friendly and obliging. The hotel feels small and charming and it is a good location. A very steep incline up to the hotel but very good taxi services if needed.

We had stayed at this Guest house --earlier and decided that as we were travelling down to south of England this would be an ideal place to break the journey --however the weather was horrific that weekend and travelling back up the M6 was challenging but the weather reports on BBC radio 2 advised that a number of roads were...

We are very sorry that you were not able to make the stay, and though we gave the besy information we had at the time, we do understand that conditions on the ground can change quite quickly. Unfortunately the Booking.com conditions are quite clear on cancellation. We hope that you had a safe journey all the same. More

Arrived to a very warm welcome from Liz who showed us to our room (number 1). It was well appointed and very comfortable although it was one of their more compact rooms. It had all we required i.e. Tea and Coffee making facilities and private bathroom. Breakfast was a lovely way to start the day with home-made marmalade and a... More

The Fairfield is up a steep hill just a short stroll from the centre of Bowness. The staff are very friendly and polite.

This beautiful B & B is situated on the Brantfell road right at the Bowness on Windermere. They offered comfortable lodgings with windows overlooking either their garden or the road.
