Thank you so much for your lovely review. We like to think we are in a great spot to chillax in, close enough to Windermere to easily visit, far enough out to be away from the throng of tourists. We're pleased the sun cooperated for you as well and I'm sure the beers went down nicely in our garden. Hopefully...

Stayed with my husband and my parents for a birthday weekend through voucher deal. We had a pleasant stay. Pool and spa area small and needing a revamp but fit for purpose. Was provably a lovely hotel in the 70's and early 80's but needs some TLC now. Was fine for weekend stay. Grounds are beautiful and Bill, the duck...

Thank you for your visit and review. Bill, the beak-less wonder, is part of the family these days and we're pleased you got to meet him. About the hotel being dated, it has been remodelled not too long ago but we retained the country hotel feel. It may not be that it is outdated, but perhaps it was not the...

This is a nice quiet location within a few minutes drive to lake Windermere. My friend and I stayed for 2 nights and found the staff very helpful and friendly. The food was excellent. The room was very clean and had a lovely outlook over fields. We had a voucher deal and thought it excellent value for money.

We had a 2 night break at Damson Dene which was listed as being in Bowness-on-Windermere. However, it was a good 10 minutes drive away. Dinner (included) on the first night was delicious and well presented. Unfortunately, the same could not be said about the breakfast. Although there was plenty of choice, the cooked food was barely warm and this...
