Hotels, Guest Houses and B&B in

Accommodation in the English Lake
District National Park

The two separate villages of Bowness
on Windermere and Windermere are popular with tourists looking for
hotel or guest house accommodation and there is plenty on offer. Bowness,
however, with its immediate Lakeside location tends to be most favoured
by tourists, weekenders and day-trippers. While several large hotels
dominate the lakeside, it is the small bed and breakfast guest houses,
usually family run affairs, which vastly outnumber them and which
in the main take the lion’s share of Lake District accommodation bookings,
by virtue of their sheer number.

Places like Lingwood Lodge in Bowness
are typical; located in a quiet spot but within 400 yards of lake,
the steamer pier, shops and restaurants. Similarly, Lowfell Country
House Hotel, described by ‘The American Traveller Magazine’ in 2005
as “… a rather pukka Bed and Breakfast
in a splendid part of the beautiful English Lake District. Simply
one of the nicest B&B’s we’ve discovered this side of the Atlantic…
great location, lovely house, delicious breakfasts, heavenly beds
– and really nice people…”
. This wonderful turn of
the century Lakeland stone house is completely private and set in
an acre of secluded garden, nestled behind a high stone wall and surrounded
by mature trees and shrubs.

times, this 3 star, 64 bedroom hotel is central for many local attractions

and a variety of local shops. Its restaurant serves lunch and dinner

the lawns or in one of the lounges.

A more traditional pub atmosphere is

time been voted one of the most romantic 3 star hotels in England,
surrounded by open countryside and many interesting walks. Full use
