Lovely rooms and delightful little touches made this a great trip. Fresh milk and lemon water in the fridge in our room along with homemade cookies were really appreciated. The hotel has free car park and wi-fi and is a great base for walking into both Bowness and Windermere. We will definitely be visiting again.

Been here twice before and didn't think it could be improved on from last time but the room we stayed in has recently been refurbished to a very high standard. The home made cakes and biscuits are a very welcome complimentary touch and perfect for when I got peckish in the middle of the night and was able to pop... More

We wanted somewhere central and this was idealy situated between Windermere and Bowness. We had room 3 which is a bath shower combined. It was a large size double with a comfy bed and bath robes...

We chose to stay at Glenville after reading about it on Tripadvisor -and we were not disappointed. It is situated halfway between Bowness and Windemere, and took about 10 mins to walk into Bowness (although doing it uphill seemed to take longer!). We had the superior king bed room which is situated at the front of the house. It was... More

We stayed here two years ago and found the location and accommodation perfect. Glenville house is situated on the main road between Bowness and Windermere. It is easy walking either way so you have the best of both locations. The room we requested was ground floor and overlooked the front garden. There is parking on site and with just 7... More

So many people already commented on the location or the breakfast or the rooms and all of these are just excellent, but why? I think because the hosts Jayne and Peter are just extremely nice and warm people from their heart. And they try to make their guests feel comfortable and cosy because that is exactly what they love to... More
