This was our 2nd stay at Dene House and it didn't disappoint. Ian & Jenny were great hosts, very quiet at night and their home made breakfast was the cherry on top. Fabulous weekend in the lakes made even more fabulous by an amazing B&B

Arrived midday and received a lovely warm welcome from Anne & Chris, they introduced themselves as the caretaker hosts but you would have thought it was their own place by the professional and warm welcome, Dene House has its own parking which is a big plus for Bowness; less than 5 minutes walk to shops and restaurants. Dene House is...

Been a while since we were last at Dene House and it was even better than last time. Ian and Jenny are superb hosts. The room (1) in its new livery and very comfy Super King bed was a treat. Breakfast of course was very tasty and the Lakes outstanding. What more could we ask for.

Beautiful building. Attentive and friendly staff. Warm welcome with a pot of tea and homemade baking. Accommodated a prearranged earlier check-in. Off road parking. Quiet location yet a 2 minute stroll to the nearest pubs and eateries. Room 2 was spacious, clean and tidy. Forward facing and lots of natural light in the daytime. The evening it was nice and...

Lovely B&B very clean, a short walk to centre of Bowness. Would definitely recommend. Lots of places to eat and drink. The hole in the wall pub has a lovely atmosphere. Lots to see and do. Take the boat across the lake to visit Beatrix potters house.
