I stayed here with my wife for 3 nights in April 2014. The owner was very friendly and knowledgeable about the local area. The breakfast was delicious and they were very accommodating to our needs. The room was clean and bright and the mattress was very comfortable. We will be staying here again! :)

We booked The Old Court House because we wanted somewhere at the top of Bowness, close enough to the shops and lake to walk, but still able to escape the noise of the bars in the centre. And we chose well! Sue, who runs the B&B, was lovely and made us feel very welcome. Our room was dual aspect and... More

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
