Spent the weekend Friday to Sunday here. Amazing. Everything was spot on. We stayed in the sanctuary suite at the back of the hotel. Worth every penny. Bowness itself is lovely and the hotel was fantastic. Only one small point was that the hotel felt very cold in the breakfast room and the hotel

This place lives up to the reviews, the hotel is amazing and the staff are brilliant, couldn't do enough for you. Most places with high reviews have something that niggles but the only thing I could find to niggle about is that they don't do room service which is not really a big deal.

We needed a few days away after a month of very stressful work weeks, so after umming and ahhhing we decided on the Lakes. As this was a break for relaxation and not rambling, we focused our search around Bowness where the main hub of life seems to be. The Cranleigh Boutique ticked all of our boxes - 2 minutes... More
