Just returned from 3 night stay at Dene House - looked after extremely well by Ian and Jenny who are lovely hosts and made you feel very welcome. The weather was perfect the whole time and we even managed to sit on their lovely patio with a glass of wine.... hoping to return next year for another lovely weekend.

Ideal location to explore the Lakes and to throw in a night out in Bowness. The room was large and spacious for a B&B. The shower was nice and hot and powerful enough. The breakfast was nice too. The owner was friendly and informative. Try the Brant Fell walk which is just around the corner and offers excellent views.

Just got back from a weekend away here. We were greeted on arrival and made to feel welcome, we were shown our room then offered drinks and cakes in the breakfast room. The room was very comfortable and had everything you needed. There was a huge selection at breakfast time and the cooked breakfast was even presented well on plate,... More

Comfy huge bed, lovely lovely place!! Don't even get me started on... More

Thoroughly enjoyable stay. I could not find any fault with Dene house. The room was spotlessly clean and the bed was amazing. Breakfast was 5 star and I would highly recommend Dene House. Thank you for a great stay.

Very friendly…perfect location. We had a fantastic stay at the lovely B&B in Bowness, the owners could not do enough for you. We had room No2 which a large tastefully decorated room with everything you’d want for a comfortable stay….a quality TV, docking station, fridge and a large comfortable bed. The breakfast had a fantastic choice to suit all tastes.... More

Great breakfast, fresh fruit, cereal etc, really tasty homemade yogurt, before your choice of breakfast. Very friendly owners, clean & cosy room with lots of tea & coffee, very comfy beds - had a great nights sleep. Near to town for pubs & eating out, will be back :)

I can't think of one single thing negative about the property and the owners. It was charming and spotless. All amenities were provided.The breakfasts were delicious. Ian was very helpful in his suggestions on excursions and dining. We had a car, but didn't need it when exploring the town. Bowness is perfectly situated to explore the entire area.
