4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here for a long weekend, nice place but at £150.00 a night B&B it's a little overpriced. The room we stayed in was a little small. Breakfast has to be ordered the night before which we found a bit of an issue. Would we go back, I don't think so, we would look for a larger hotel for the... More

The staff were very friendly and the service was great! Our room was lovely and we had a comfortable weekend :) It was a great location too, 2 minutes walk from Windermere and walking distance/a short drive to Bowness where we could catch a boat to explore the scenic Windermere Lake. We also enjoyed our free passes to a spa... More

Stayed for 2 nights in the Greenburn mini suite for our anniversary 16th and 17th July 2016. Lovely room, very clean. Very comfortable bed with artificial red petals all over it, a box of lovely chocs and a note to congratulate us on our anniversary, that was a lovely touch. Some people have mentioned the noise from the road but... More

Warm and welcoming from the start. Perfect location too, 15 minutes to the lake and pubs with shops and ice cream just around the corner. Clean, light and airy rooms with baths to die for! I could have spent the entire weekend in there!

Our room was large and very clean. Plenty of storage so if you are staying for more than a day plenty of space to unpack your suitcase. Extensive range was offered for breakfast and our selections where all cooked well. Easy walk into Bowness-on-windermere, hotel offers discounts at 2 local restaurants - both offered excellent food and service.

My wife and I came to The Howbeck for our Anniversary it was wonderful from the first time we stepped through the door. We had a wonderful greeting and the service was exceptional. The Breakfasts were absolutely fantastic so tasty and set us up for the day. The only slight downside was our neighbours banging doors between 10pm and midnight,... More

Stayed for 2 nights to explore The Lakes. The welcome, the room and the breakfast was all exceptional and the staff were very attentive and friendly. Would recommend this B&B if you want something different and high end.
