I came here with my family, for the third time and it was just as lovely every time. The rooms are sweet and have little ornaments and Beatrix potter toys in them, and the location is near enough to the centre, but not in the heart of it all, so it is quiet and near beautiful walks

Above the bay, actually surpassed all our expectation. it is quite a cozy little place, actually, just a couple... More

My issue were with issues relating to stuff toys on the beds and carpet in the bathroom . Good powerful hot shower. The noise from the pipe work may... More

Great location close to the centre with all of it's pubs and restaurants, shortcut up an down the private steps shared with the B&B next door. Clean room with old fashioned décor, including carpet in the bathroom, a stuffed toy on the bed and an interesting selection of pictures. But having said that we could not fault it for value... More

Just returned from a two night stay at this lovely dog friendly B&B. Would return again anytime and would not hesitate to recomend to anyone. A few minutes walk from Bowness centre, spotlessly clean rooms, good breakfast and an ideal base for exploring the lakes. Bowness is very dog friendly, plenty of places to eat and drink with your dog.... More

Stayed here on our way up to Scotland and on our return journey. Great outlook across the lake from the huge balcony. Rooms were spacious, very comfortable, very clean and cosy, with great en-suite facilities. Breakfast was delicious and everything done to make our stay an enjoyable one.

The rooms are clean, breakfast provided by Trevor and Clair set us up for the day and to return late afternoon and sit out on... More

We stayed over for one night & we are going to stay again, We found Bowness a nice place to stay over & there was plenty to see & do, the boat trips are worth a go. At night time we ate at the "Ship Inn" nice meal & dogs are welcome. The B&B is very clean & well maintained... More
