Great find , ideally suited for restaurants, cafes and shops. Ground floor room cosy comfortable and spotless. We had to leave early in the morning but Sue was more than happy to serve us an early breakfast. Glad she did, it was excellent.

The Old Courthouse is a fantastic place to stay in Bowness. Guests are made to feel very welcome. The rooms are very comfortable and the breakfast is great. The location of the B&B is ideal, with plenty of restaurants a very short stroll away and the lake just down the hill. Unlike many B&Bs in Bowness, the Old Courthouse has... More

Room was first floor and was very spacious. It was immaculate and clean. It had a really nice homely feeling and was great to return to after a long walk (in the rain!). Bed was big and comfy. The location was quiet and very useful to access Lake Windermere. A very short walk to the lake front and a few... More

We booked into this accommodation because of the sense of history of the place. Unfortunately, I had my hopes up too high. I was expecting a much stronger sense of history from the place but the only reference to its history was at the door with a few sentences indicating the building's past. I was disappointed. I wouldn't blame the... More
