We visited for two nights in January and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Very friendly welcome and an offer of homemade shortbread on arrival. Very clean room and large comfy bed. Perfect for a few nights and close to restaurants.

My husband and I just spent a wonderful few days in the Lake District and stayed at Dene House. It was superb! We travel frequently - across the UK and abroad - and it is a lovely surprise to find a new place which is wonderfully special. The bedroom was spotless and newly painted and decorated. There was a small...

In short ... lovely welcome ... offered tea and cake which I now wish we had accepted. The room was lovely ... clean, spacious and cozy. The king size bed was very comfortable. Then...

Excellent B&B 3 - 4 mins walk to the lake and shops in Bowness, nice a quite at night even though all the rooms were taken. Fabulous breakfast, rooms were serviced every day and to a very high standard. Would give a higher score if they had room to sit in the evening. You won't be disappointed

Great room, excellent breakfast and free parking, what more could you ask for. The B&B was only a 5 minute walk to lake Windermere and the many great restaurants and bars. Would highly recommend a stay here

The hosts were incredibly welcoming, settling us in after a long drive, and making great recommendations for nice places to eat. The room was clean and comfortable, and the breakfast delicious.
