This guest house is in an excellent location away from main road traffic. We were greeted by our hosts with home made cakes on a sunny terrace. Rooms were airy, well furnished and well equipped. Dene House is located near to the centre of Bowness and within easy walking distance of Lake, shops and restaurants. We had excellent breakfasts and... More

we found this on Booking.com but decided to ring up and see a room was available the lady was very nice and we booked the room. I was easy to find just 3mins walking from the village. Plenty of parking. The landlord welcomed us and gave us a key even though our room was not ready. We were offered tea... More

I took my partner here for his birthday - we were only there for a night so I wanted to make sure we were we situated within walking distance and it was perfect. The hosts were perfect - gave you your privacy but were there to help when you needed them. The breakfast was one of the best I've ever... More

Dene House is located off the main room so it's easily accessible by whichever means of transport. We're a group of friends who made last minute booking via booking.com yet the rates were still competitive. We were warmly welcomed and shown to our rooms. Each room is uniquely decorated, kept tidy, supplied with mini fridge, a kettle (& teabags, instant... More

Had a great few days in the Lakes staying at Dene House. It is about 2.8 km from the station in Windermere and a minute's walk from the waterfront. I was cycling around the area, getting some training in for the Fred Whitton Sportive. This area was ideal for this as you can reach all the main cycling areas easily.... More

My partner and I visited here in February and we could not have picked a better place, we even stayed an extra night. The people who ran it were really friendly and could not do enough for us. The location was great a couple of mins walk from bowness town. We are definetly planning on going back.

My girlfriend and I stayed at Dene House Fri 20 Mar - Sun 22 Mar 2015, and everything was faultless. The double en suite room was spacious and the beds were massive and extremely comfy!

We stayed for 2 nights bed and breakfast at the Dene Guesthouse (along with a couple of friends) and we were totally impressed by the standards presented hence our 5/5 overall satisfaction. Hearty English Breakfast! Anyone looking for the above qualities in a guesthouse need look no further than the Dene. Wonderful!
