We have just returned from a break at Dene House. Ian is an excellent host, greeting us with tea and cake on the patio on a sunny afternoon. We had the ground floor room which was very big and spotless, it also had a fridge (handy for cooling the wine). The breakfasts were superb, I particularly loved the home made... More

Very pleasant room filled with light and a comfy bed. Nice bathroom just steps down the hall. A fridge for storing snacks or food and tea and coffee makings at hand. A full breakfast was provided with fine choices that was yummy! Staff couldn't have been kinder and the location is close to Everything!

We really appreciate your very kind review. When we bought Dene House we wanted something close to Bowness but set back from the road so our guests could enjoy the peace and quiet - and that was just what we found in Dene House. Receive a 10% discount when booking direct through our website. More

A lovely house in a superb location for the lake and boats to Ambleside and Lakeside. Great hosts, good choice of breakfast and quality ingredients. Very comfortable room with good ensuite and other facilities (tea, coffee, biscuits, fridge etc) Quiet at night yet just a few minutes stroll to bars and restaurants.

Just back from a two night stay - lovely place just a short walk down to the Lake. We were greeted with a friendly welcome by Ian and felt that nothing was too much trouble. Lovely superior room on the first floor with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Spotlessly clean rooms and a smashing breakfast. Will definitely return.... More

Easy to find, quiet location, beautiful house with parking. Made to feel very welcome on our arrival with tea and biscuits. Dene House was spotless. Very large choice for breakfast and it was delicious both mornings. The only thing for us was that as we were staying on the ground floor we could not sleep with our windows open and... More
