Two night stay at this lovely spot and we wish we could have stayed for longer. Bowness is a busy place at the best of times but the Dome House is in a lovely quiet secluded spot only a short walk away (admittedly up a steep hill so it's easier walking down) from the main town and the steamer pier....

Just returned from a lovely stay at the Dome house. The hosts were very welcoming throughout our stay and it was interesting to learn about the background of the house which appeared on 'Grand Designs'. Breakfast was lovely with a great choice of food and an amazing view of the lake. The rooms have some self catering benefits such as... More

Thanks for a lovely weekend - excellent views over the lake and a beautiful room. There was a little noise from the room above which has now been made into a breakfast room so that won't happen next time we are there. Breakfast hamper was a real treat with lots of local goodies Thanks very much

We took advantage of the three nights for the price of two which did mean that the break worked out as cost effective. The building is much larger than it is shown on TV, and therefore when looking from the drive its quite imposing but over time looks to have blended into the scenery, i like how the grass roof...
