We have stayed here on several occasions en route to Scotland from Wales. Our last trip was a one night stay. This time we ate in the bar in the evening as we didn't want a three course meal, the food and service were great as was the breakfast buffet, where we were entertained by the ducks walking on the...

Just back from our second visit to The Damsen Dene. What can I add - loved every minute of it! We arrived Friday evening and stayed for 2 nights. It was my birthday treat from my husband. Wayne showered me in rose petals on the morning of my birthday and, again, more rose petals scattered on the table when we...

Stayed 23rd/24th Sept 2014, the service at reception was excellent as was the restaurant staff. The breakfast was buffet style with plenty on offer. The evening meals were excellent and well presented. The room was clean and noise free and comfortable. The rest of the facilities we did not use as we were out all the time. WI FI in...

We took advantage of an Amazon Local deal for two nights B&B, dinner on first night and a Windermere Cruise which was good value. Damson Dene also has a spa, which my husband likes. I can't critique the spa, as in the event, we were too busy to use it. We have a small dog Harry, so checked first that...

This was a very delightful review to read from lovely guests. You obviously 'get' what we are all about here at the Damson Dene; good value, relaxing breaks featuring delicious food and a friendly atmosphere.
