“Last Minute Saturday night stay Oct 12.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Booked the Sundown on the Saturday morning for that evening, a last minute 1 night stay to go mountainbiking in the Lakes Sat/Sun. Spoke with Mark on the phone to confirm the booking and upon arrival he met my partner and I at the door and could not be more helpful. On allowing us to drop off our bags he gave plenty of advice on where to cycle, being a keen mountain biker himself and lent us one of his mountain bike guide books, which was really useful. Room was modern, clean and had everything we needed. Only 5 min walk in to the town and the edge of the lake with plenty of restaurants. Breakfast was ample and I would recommend this guesthouse to anyone whether for 1 night or more. We will be going back.

Had a two night stay in October 2012. Warm welcome, very clean, nicely furnished, breakfast gorgeous and freshly cooked, staff helpful and friendly. Well placed and only a short walk into centre of Bowness. Would go back!

I didn't plan to stay at the sandown guest house as my baby daughter, wife and I were planing on camping in our campervan for our anniversary! On traveling nearly 6 hours from Kent thought it would be nice to wake up and have breakfast and a shower.Well I was very impressed! From the moment we arrived we got a warm Geniune welcome, the room was very clean practical. A comfortable stay with a lovely breakfast and we will definitely visit again! Thankyou.

Sandown looked great on the website, and they were quick to respond to our booking. Finding the guest house was easy as it is set back from the main road from Windermere to bowness. Plenty of parking upon arrival and a friendly greeting awaited us and our border terrier Ruby ( she got her own treat).
The room was very clean everything was fine, breakfast service was quick and plentiful with copious amounts of coffee and other drinks on offer.
The owners really made us feel welcome and if you are unsure, then you certainly cannot go wrong going to Sandown.
We hope to return soon (with Ruby and Rosie next time ?)

My wife and I spent a lovely weekend in Bowness. We stayed at The Sandown and cannot fault it. The house is s very close to all the Bowness amenities and the local pubs and restaurants are right there.
Georgeene and Mark are ever on hand to point you in the direction of the local attractions. Mark's knowledge of local walks and their diffuculties is a great asset.
The rooms are very comfortable and the breakfasts are superb. I've become a Cumberland Sausage addict!!!
Looking forward to our next stay here.

Room Tip: Room 4 has the most space if you have a big bag!!
