Lonsdale house B&B in Bowness is a lovely little get away place. I've stayed here 3 times now March, June and Sept 2016. And I'm going back again next week for 4days. Andrew is the owner and runs his B&B perfect, all the staff are very friendly and it's a dog friendly place too. As I travel solo I first...

We stayed here as we were attending a friends wedding further in the village. This was the perfect location as it was literally 5 minutes walk away. On arrival we met the manager who was fantastic, so welcoming and even allowed us to choose our room as there were two different ones. He went through all the details of the...

Firstly, the hotel was ideally situated with just a short walk to the centre and lake. The parking at the front and rear of the hotel was extremely handy as we've stayed in places in Bowness before that have had none. The rooms were cosy with extremely comfy beds and the bathroom had a powerful shower - just what you...

The room was OK, it had a four poster bed far too big for the room. The room had a loose floor board, next to the bathroom, it was noisy, as we were right next to the main front door. The breakfast was OK but it was more like a children's portion. We did not have enough towels and the...

We booked this on our way home from Scotland. It looks nothing from the outside but once you get in it's a different world. We initially booked for one night but then changed the booking to two nights. The accommodation was wonderful. We had our two dogs with us and they were made very welcome. Fabulous breakfast in the morning...

All the staff are really warm and friendly - they constantly ask if you need anything. The hotel is clean, good quality family B&B with a great atmosphere. We stayed in room 6 that faces the road (comfortable 4 poster bed). The traffic can be heard but it isn't distracting and it's easy to sleep. The curtain doesn't let light...
