Lake District in general, and Bowness in particular, is not a budget place to spend your vacation. That said, this was more than good value for the money. Comfortable beds, space enough in the room (ours was one of the bigger ones), clean, good food and very, very helpful hosts - everything you could wish for. Still close to the...

We enjoyed a lovely stay for two nights in a double ensuite room. Dene House enjoys a great location just a short walk from the shops and lake. The owners are very friendly and courteous and the breakfast is outstanding! Free parking is a nice bonus too. We couldn't fault our stay and would definitely recommend.

I had a single room on the second floor, with detached but private bath. Everything was immaculate, and the hosts are very gracious. The location is almost a secret, hidden among trees and set back from any road. Yet the house is convenient to the pier and town. The breakfast is excellent and the price is good.
