My girlfriend and I stayed at Dene House Fri 20 Mar - Sun 22 Mar 2015, and everything was faultless. The double en suite room was spacious and the beds were massive and extremely comfy! All the standard things you'd expect from a B&B were spot on with extra bonuses too like the tea and homemade shortbread biscuits we were... More

I had done some reviews of local bed and breakfasts in the local area and I was trying to stay on the cheap end. I was a solo traveler from the USA with no real plans. The places I looked online ended up being more expensive when I showed up in person so I just decided to walk into a... More

We stayed for 2 nights bed and breakfast at the Dene Guesthouse (along with a couple of friends) and we were totally impressed by the standards presented hence our 5/5 overall satisfaction. Hearty English Breakfast! Anyone looking for the above qualities in a guesthouse need look no further than the Dene. Wonderful!

We were welcomed by Ian on arrival with the offer of tea and home made shortbread. The perfect start to a perfect stay. The room was tastefully decorated and warm as toast. Bed was a very comfortable king size and aided a lovely sleep. Dene house is only steps away from the center but so very peaceful. Couldnt hear a... More

After we received a warm welcome from our hosts, we checked into our spacious beautifully presented room. I was delighted with our choice and had to be tempted to leave the room to go out for dinner! Breakfast was a success: plentiful and nourishing, setting us up perfectly for a day spent exploring the area. Ideal location in Bowness, quiet... More

My wife and I stayed for one night on 10 November. The superior room was excellent as was breakfast. We would recommend and return. The location is very good only a short walk from the town centre but in a very quiet area and close to a nice walk into the hills above the lake offering superb views

My husband and I stayed at Dene House in September for a one night stay. We loved it. We booked a superior double room with en-suite. The furnishings were all very good quality and beautifully clean. On arrival we were offered refreshments which were greatly appreciated. In the rooms the owners had put some useful recommendations for restaurants in the... More

After a last minute decision to visit the Lake District for a short break we booked a night at Dene House and we were not disappointed. From the warm welcome which included tea and lovely home made cake, to our large, beautifully decorated room and the delicious breakfast we were glad we chose Dene House. The location is excellent, an... More
