When we arrived we were offered tea/coffee and that was served with homemade... More

We are just back from a 1 night stay in Dene House and it was too short! The house is beautifully decorated. The breakfast was delicious and the staff were very attentive. The guest house is located a 5 minute stroll into Bowness. I highly recommend Dene House.

We were made welcome straight away by the owner Ian. He explained the rules of the house, and then sat us with a complimentary cup of tea and piece of cake. We were then shown to our room, which was very smart and modern, with an en-suite bathroom. Breakfast was served daily between 8:30-9:30 and consisted of a buffet of... More

A perfect location within walking distance of the quaint town center and superb hospitality. The room was spacious with a nice bathroom. Our hosts were on vacation, but their substitutes made us feel very welcome. The breakfast was excellent and plenty to eat. Our stay was very brief so our only regret was our inability to stay longer and enjoy... More

Stayed in room 4 (single room) and was very impressed by my 4 night stay. The location is ideal as it's a very short walk to the town centre but on a relatively quiet road so there's not much traffic noise. The room itself was a good size, was clean, had a comfy bed and was well equipped (TV,iPod dock,... More

Stayed here in May. Was a surprise birthday weekend away with my wife. I have to say my wife chose very wisely. This place was great. Not to far to walk from the centre of Bowness either. Room was modern and very very clean and tidy. The breakfasts each morning were of an excellent standard and very filling. So much... More

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
