I stayed here for a week in June. In the single room. The only thing that came as a bit of a surprise to me was that the rooms bathroom is outside the room, however it is private to the specific room and they supply a dressing gown to dash across the hall in the middle of the night and... More

I recently enjoyed a wonderful week at Dene House. The rooms are tastefully furnished, spotlessly clean and are maintained daily. The rooms I stayed in all included a tv, fridge, tea & coffee making facilities. Wifi worked seamlessly throughout the building too. The dining area is lovely and the buffet and cooked breakfasts are both excellent. Dene House is a... More

Agree with all reviews that the place is lovely. Its clean and our room was really well decorated. We were in the ground floor room and would not chose to stay in this again as its a bit noisy (right next to the front door and kitchen) My only complaint is that the room should have some curtains that close....

I booked room 1 (superior w/ en suite) for £106 for a Thursday night, for me and my partner. We were greeted with fresh tea, coffee and cakes which were amazing! The lady who signed us in was very friendly and took time to explain the guest house and some of the surrounding features to us. The room was lovely,... More

Our second visit here and found it to be just as good as our first, great breakfast and bright and fresh rooms, well worth a visit, friendly welcome, free parking and close to main restaurants and bars. Great value for money, sure will visit again.

Stayed here two years ago, had a lovely stay back then so decided to stay at Dene House again. Can't fault it once again, warm welcome, lovely spacious clean room. Breakfast is lovely and the location is brilliant a short walk into Bowness. Would highly recommend!

My wife and I have stayed with Jenny and Ian at Dene house on four occasions now and we would have no hesitation in rebooking to stay again in any of the seasons. It is by far our favourite place to stay in the Lakes. Both the owners and all of the staff are welcoming and friendly and are always... More

This guest house is in an excellent location away from main road traffic. We were greeted by our hosts with home made cakes on a sunny terrace. Rooms were airy, well furnished and well equipped. Dene House is located near to the centre of Bowness and within easy walking distance of Lake, shops and restaurants. We had excellent breakfasts and... More

we found this on Booking.com but decided to ring up and see a room was available the lady was very nice and we booked the room. I was easy to find just 3mins walking from the village. Plenty of parking. The landlord welcomed us and gave us a key even though our room was not ready. We were offered tea... More
