This Guest House served the MOST DELICIOUS shortbread cookies I've ever had. This guest house is modern, extremely clean, centrally located for the Lake District, and in a beautiful location. Our room was on the back and faced a small garden and the river. My cousin and I slept like babies at night because the sound of the river was so calming. The beds are comfortable and the bathroom was wonderful. My cousin likes bathtubs and this room had a long, deep tub. I prefer showers and the water pressure and hot water were ample. Breakfast was a joy with pastries, cereals, fresh fruit, juices, and cooked. The sausages were delightful. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The room was large and our stay was quite comfortable. I would stay here again without hesitation.

Room Tip: For a better sleeping experience because of the sound of the river, ask for a room on the back of th...

We have just returned from a stay at Hawksmoor guest house. It is without doubt the best guesthouse we have ever stayed in.
The guesthouse was immaculately clean , the room was lovely and the breakfast was excellent.

The Hawksmoor is an excellent guest house. It thoroughly deserves it's English Breakfast award with a different special every day. There is plenty of parking. It is mid-way between Windermere and Bowness. An easy 10 minute walk to either.

On arrival we were given a charming and warm welcome with a cup of tea and shortbread. The wifi worked well and the room, which although rather small, looked recently refurbished with a good shower. The bed was very comfortable.

A great place to stay, about half way between Windermere and Bowness. The guest house is spotless and the owners clearly take great pride in their property. We stayed in room 11 which is a good size, furnishings are beautiful and has a large modern bathroom. Breakfasts were delicious and set us up for the day. Trevor and Phillipa we're welcoming and there if you needed them, and their staff were very friendly and professional. All in all a great stay, would definitely go back and will recommend to friends and family.

My daughters and I stayed at Hawksmoor for two nights in mid June 2014. The guesthouse is located in between the towns of Windermere and Bowness on the lake - about a mile to either one. We walked from the train station, which was a bit of a healthy walk with heavy backpacks, but it is certainly doable. Trevor and Philippa were very welcoming and got us set up right away in our very nice room. The room was on the ground floor and right next to the entrance and dining area, but it was still very quiet. It was set up with one king size (at least I think it was a king) and a separate twin in an alcove. However, Trevor told me it could have been set up as three singles. The bathroom was large, and included a shower, a separate bathtub, underfloor heating, and heated towel racks. Our room had two TVs, both with DVD players. The guesthouse also has numerous DVDs that you can borrow while you are staying there. It worked out great for us, as my older daughter and I wanted to watch the World Cup and my younger daughter had no interest. Coffee/tea/hot chocolate was provided in the room. A very nice breakfast was provided and cooked to order. In addition, the room comes with access to the pool and spa facilities in another hotel by the Lake. The girls loved being able to swim and use the sauna, "ice room" and "experience shower" at the MacDonald Old England Hotel. You do need to be sure that you are somewhat organized about getting things such as movies, because the owners are not available in the evenings after 6:30 (except for emergencies, of course) as they have young kids and spend their evenings with them. Probably because of that, we found the guesthouse to be very "kid-friendly". I would definitely recommend this guesthouse.

Just got back from a two day break at Hawksmoor, what can I say how do you improve on the best B&b in Windermere, it is like going home,Phillipa and Trevor are wonderful hosts, nothing is to much, trouble, all their staff are lovely and are very helpful.
The breakfasts are wonderful, lots of choice, and most of all the food is served piping hot.
The bedrooms are spotless and beautifully decorated.
Thank you all for another wonderful stay

Well situated between Windermere and Bowness. Rooms are very comfortable with super bathrooms and so spacious. More a small hotel than a guest house.
Breakfast was very good and the 'specials' a good idea and appreciated.
Philippa and Trevor were very welcoming.
