I stayed 2 nights at Dene House and thoroughly enjoyed my visit. I received a warm welcome from Anne and Chris who were managing the guest house while the owners were on holiday. The room was immaculate and all facilities very clean. Breakfast was simply lovely, plentiful and really good quality ingredients. The home made raspberry yoghurt was fantastic! Dene...

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.

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.

I stayed here with my husband as a last minute booking. The reviews are all fantastic for a reason. The welcome was excellent with a cup of tea and shortbread and brownie. The room was comfortable, with nice details of wine glasses and bottle opener, and an iPod docking station. The breakfast was delicious and plenty of it. I mistakenly...

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...
