We had a fantastic stay at Dene House. The owners made us feel very welcome. The English Breakfast is cooked to perfection. The house is just beautiful and in a very convenient location for town (we attended a wedding at the Belsfield Hotel - 2 minute walk away). We loved it!

The taxi driver told me when we arrived at Dene (pronounced like dean) House that it is one of the best B&B's in Bowness. It is also in a great location, a very short walk into the center of town, but away from any noise and traffic. After showing me to my room, Jenny served me tea, banana bread, and...

We stayed one night at Dene house but we could easily have stayed longer if we could have. Upon arrival mid afternoon we were given tea and cakes which were beautifully presented. The room had everything required along with an excellent shower. The breakfast was excellent and all served with a smile. Cleanliness and attention to detail was really good,...

We stayed here for one night after walking The Dales Way. The location was excellent, a little away from the center of town, and very easy to get down to the lake by taking a short cut that we found. We stayed on the third floor and our room was fine except that the wifi did not reach our room...
