“Style, comfort, quality, a perfect base in The Lakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2011

Emma and Gregor run a really friendly and relaxed guest house, where all the finishing touches of a top boutique hotel (selection of fine teas, smooth cotton sheets, sensous smelling bathroom soaps and big fluffy towels and robes) meet the best elements of a traditional country guest house (hot, satisfying breakfasts, super clean rooms and a very warm welcome). Professional and sensitive to their customers needs you can enjoy a happy hour discussing the best walks or be simply left to enjoy your stay in one of their sumptious en suite rooms. Close to both Windermere and Bowness and a pile of good eating places and pubs Braemount would be very hard to beat. Watch out for their yoga weekends - am just back from one with Maureen Wray, an excellent Iyengar teacher and feeling deliciously refreshed and stretched. Helen Morris

Only booked this hotel last minute, and found another excellent place to stay
Emma & Gregor with lovely lovely people only recently taking over the hotel ,I feel once they have put their stamp on it it will become the of the best places to stay. We were greeted with coffee and mince pie and then shown to our room which was lovely and clean. I would recommend you visit and I am sure like us you will return many times !!

We decided to get away for a festive break and we used booking.com to find this hotel.

Braemount House have lovely new owners in Emma and Gregor. I went on their first iyengar yoga two night stay and had a great time. The break included 4 one and half hour yoga sessions set in room overlooking Windermere with a with a qualified and respected Iyengar teacher. The early half seven starts were a bit hard with a hangover but a few stretches and postures quickly dealt with the lethargy and watching the sunrise over the fells was beautiful.

The yoga sessions catered for all levels of ability and Gaynor the aforementioned was fun and encouraging and I returned home two inches taller and certainly more flexible.

The hospitality of Emma ( and Gregor) was second to none. Gorgeous afternoon tea and cakes and a delicious hearty Cumberland breakfast ( several choices too from smoked salmon, blueberry pancakes to full English). Rooms and beds very comfortable and relaxed.

Already looking forward to next yoga break!

We stayed in a posh hotel the night before through an offer about 20 mins south of windermere and decided to stay within windermere the night after to make the most of it. This B&B beat the hotel in many ways - very friendly, homely, clean and a lovely house. When we turned up we were given tea, nice festive biscuits and mince pies. Everything you need was available in the room and the place in general is welcoming. B&B ran by a lovely family.

Beautiful bed and breakfast. Its obvious that a lot of hard work and effort has been put into the braemount by its owners. Thank you for a wonderful stay Emma and Jeff

Lovely property in a good location just a short walk to Bowness centre. Very picturesque in the snow and the new owners made us all feel very welcome with coffee and mince pies on arrival. Room was very comfortable with a lovely huge bed and very clean. Breakfast was also excellent. I will definitely stay there again next time I visit Bowness.
