Myself and my partner have just returned from a lovely 3 day stay at Dene House. We were made to feel very welcome from the outset; the tea and homemade cake and shortbread upon arrival were a lovely touch. Location is fantastic - a few minutes away from Lake Windermere and many bars/places to eat. Our room (room 3) was... More

Wow what a place!!!! Clean,modern and stylish but still retaining that lake district character and charm. Friendly service and a great hot breakfast freshly prepared, you can tell the owners really care about this place and deliver a great value for money experience. Would not hesitate to recommend.

My partner and I spent the night here in August 2015 whilst attending a friend's wedding reception at a separate venue in Bowness. The location of Dene House was brilliant - everything was within walking distance, and on arrival we were offered tea and served complimentary homemade cakes and shortbread - my only regret is I forgot to ask for...

Having stayed here last year, we were pleased to return to Dene house for a family break. The standard of comfort and cleanliness is excellent, and we wouldn't stay anywhere else!! ( as long as Ian and Jenny will allow us back) The food is locally sourced and delicious- the home made yoghurt and granola are such a treat. A... More

We had a fantastic stay at Dene House. The owners made us feel very welcome. The English Breakfast is cooked to perfection. The house is just beautiful and in a very convenient location for town (we attended a wedding at the Belsfield Hotel - 2 minute walk away). We loved it!
