This unique Lake District hotel only two minutes stroll from Lake Windermere and the village of Bowness, is an oasis of peace and tranquillity. The Burn How's unique layout is refreshingly different to most hotels; all of the bedrooms are located outside of the main building within the private grounds making the stay peaceful and relaxing for the discerning guest. You can take picturesque walks from the hotel, or cruise on Lake Windermere, and if you take the Post Knott walk and you find the hotels bench, bring back the inscription and you will have a drink on us. For the shopping magnets find a special Lakeland gift in the village only two minutes walk away. On your return from a full day, relax and meet friends or family in the congenial atmosphere of the lounge and bar, or on pleasant summers evening sit out on the patio and take in the beautiful surroundings. Relax in the comfort of your room choosing from modern chalet style to four poster or traditional bedrooms. Most have private sun terraces. All have ensuite bathrooms, colour televisions, telephones and hot beverages. Rooms on the ground floor have direct access to the rose garden and patio, with some having disabled facilities. There is ample free parking available. Experience English and French Cuisine made only from the freshest produce and served in the style in which Burn How Garden House Hotel is famous. Three courses and coffee is around £35.00 Per person. At the end of the day relax with family and friends in the congenial atmosphere of the lounge and bar or on a pleasant summers evening take in the beautiful surroundings of the patio and gardens. Shoppers and browsers will delight in the speciality stores and attractions in nearby Windermere and Bowness. Whilst a drive over the Hard Knott pass is for the courageous with its 1 in 3 and 2.5 Gradients - but the views are spectacular.

Yes it's very easy to reach a number of eateries from good pub food to restraunt food and all in between and various price ranges as well the food we had was both varied and beautiful as well and the price was very competitive and within a short walk or a bit further if you want to walk your evening meal off hope this helps you guys

we stayed in the chalet style room, it wasn't classed as a deluxe room when booking. the balcony/patio area was for sole use but I don't think there was an opportunity to have breakfast served there. But you could enquire as the staff were lovely and very helpful. Parking was either next to or opposite chalets, the last chalet in the row had a very steep drive onto space but all others were fine. If you have mobility problems then ask for room close to the main reception building as further away chalets a little walk away, and all outside! If you book here I am sure you will enjoy your stay, we did very much.
