Dene House is a comfortable, beautifully decorated B&B within walking distance of the quaint village of Bowness-on-Windermere and Lake Windermere. Our en suite room on the ground floor was large with comfortable chairs in front of the bay window. The in-room fridge was a nice touch. Breakfast was delicious too.

A beautiful B&B which is a 2 minute walk from the centre of Bowness. We stayed for 2 nights after a family wedding and wanted a comfortable base to explore Bowness and the rest of the Lakes. This was it! We stayed in a double room on the top floor of the house and it was extremely clean, very very... More

We had only one night in the Lake District on our way from Wales to Glasgow but staying at the Dene House made it a great one. Excellent location close to nice bars and restaurants (think Riva and Jackson's Bistro), close to the water, close to scenic drives among the fells. We were warmly greeted, offered help with our bags,... More

I escaped to lake Windermere for some much needed R&R. I was looking for somewhere that offered a reflective space, yet somewhere that was close to civilisation because I cannot drive. From the description on the website, Dene House seemed to tick all my boxes: not too big; not too intrusive; right on the edge of Bowness. I stayed in... More

This is an excellent place to base yourself if visiting Bowness, the room we had was room 1 which was absolutely lovely and the bed was soooo comfy!! I would definitely recommend to anyone without hesitation.
