“3 lovely sunny days in the Lakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014 via mobile

This is a fantastic guesthouse. The owners have got it spot on. We decided on this guesthouse purely from the reviews on Tripadvisor which were very reliable. The breakfasts are superbly cooked with top quality local ingredients by somebody who clearly likes good food. Room 5 where we stayed was a perfect size for a base after being out all day and dining in the evening. It was very modern, clean and well maintained as was the guesthouse itself. I've no idea why the Londoners left a poor review based upon traffic noise. It's not exactly the north circular between Bowness and Windermere. Methinks some people are never happier than when they have something to whinge about! I'd have no reservations about recommending Hawksmoor to anyone. It's a cracking little place.

Chose this B+B based on the reviews here on trip advisor and was not disappointed. Stay for 4 nights in march ( off season) and the place was almost full. Perfectly located between windermere and bowness, just a 10 minute walk each way makes it a perfect location. Being able to view and choose your room on the website is brilliant and the pictures do it justice. Welcoming us with a cuppa tea when we arrived, inducting us to the local area and the staff were always friendly and hospitable. Breakfast was excellent, lots of choice and cooked to perfection. Well recommended !!

We stayed for two nights in February 2014 and had a great time just wish we had been able to stay for longer! The guesthouse is in a great location between Windermere and Bowness and has a lovely view of woodland and a stream (at the back) – we were lucky and stayed in one of the rooms at the back with a balcony. The rooms are gorgeous and decorated to a high spec and it has to be said the bed was pure comfort – bliss!

Philippa, Trevor and the staff were very friendly and happy to help with any queries both before and during our stay – thank you!

Breakfast – what a great start to the day, there was a great selection and we have to say the full breakfast was very tasty and filling and set in a lovely spacious breakfast room with a fantastic tropical fish tank!

Hopefully we will make a return visit and pretty soon too!

Room Tip: Book one of the rooms with a balcony, if possible!

Stayed here for 2 nights 1st and 2nd March. Rooms modern and spotlessly clean. Fell walkers breakfast superb or you could choose the daily special option, and service was excellent. Ideally located on the main road between Windermere and Bowness so best of both worlds. Stayed at many B&B's in the lakes over the years but this was the best so far, and would return.

We have been visiting Windermere for many years, we usually stay just up the road in another 5* b&b but luckily for us they didn't have any rooms available for our dates. The Hawksmoor is by far the nicest we have stayed in, the rooms are modern, very comfortable and spotless, staff are friendly and polite and the breakfast menu is faultless with daily specials cooked to order. I am happy to say we have a new favourite place to stay when visiting Windermere and can't wait to go back.

Weekend stay with the wife here. Stayed in their luxury room which was very comfortable with an excellent bathroom. Spotlessly clean, well maintained guesthouse. A special word for the breakfasts which was simply the best cooked breakfast I have ever had.

The hosts were lovely and very welcoming with tea offered upon arrival. Current DVD's available to borrow for use in your room.
I will be booking again shortly for a break in the spring.

Just returned to Saudi after a much needed sleet and rain soaked lengthy walk around the lake after living in a land of dust and camels for 6 months. Hawksmore was booked for myself, wife, sister and bro' in law on the strength of Tripadvisor. Luckily, I went straight the their site to book and this turned out to be a good move because apparently sometimes not all of the rooms are displayed as available on other sites when there are alternative rooms un-booked. So you may wanna' look at that.
Anyway, hospitality is brilliant, comfort is as you would expect in a close friends house, breakfast tremendous. The hosts were exceptional and the waitress at brecky was the best you could ask for. I thank you very much for such a comfortable stay.

Room Tip: Had a view over the river - that tent in the tree could do with removing. Thought it was a stalker...
