The Westbourne is a lovely house in Bowness. It is a short walk to the town centre. We were in room 9 which was accessed outside of the main house. There was a small area when you entered where you could change your footwear and then a door into the bedroom. It was compact but perfectly adequate for our needs.

Lovely B&B, great central location with parking. Lovely bright, clean, cosy room with a view. Really comfy bed, and a tasty breakfast with plenty of choice and great coffee this morning. Couldn't have asked for better! Thank you.

We had such a lovely 1 night stay here. Sue & Andre were very accomodating. Our room was very clean and was so much bigger than expected. Its in a very good location, less than 5 minutes wall into town and a 10 minute walk to the lake. So happy I booked The Westbourne :-)
