“Great Iyengar yoga break”
Reviewed 22 December 2010

Braemount House have lovely new owners in Emma and Gregor. I went on their first iyengar yoga two night stay and had a great time. The break included 4 one and half hour yoga sessions set in room overlooking Windermere with a with a qualified and respected Iyengar teacher. The early half seven starts were a bit hard with a hangover but a few stretches and postures quickly dealt with the lethargy and watching the sunrise over the fells was beautiful.

The yoga sessions catered for all levels of ability and Gaynor the aforementioned was fun and encouraging and I returned home two inches taller and certainly more flexible.

The hospitality of Emma ( and Gregor) was second to none. Gorgeous afternoon tea and cakes and a delicious hearty Cumberland breakfast ( several choices too from smoked salmon, blueberry pancakes to full English). Rooms and beds very comfortable and relaxed.

Already looking forward to next yoga break!

We stayed in a posh hotel the night before through an offer about 20 mins south of windermere and decided to stay within windermere the night after to make the most of it. This B&B beat the hotel in many ways - very friendly, homely, clean and a lovely house. When we turned up we were given tea, nice festive biscuits and mince pies. Everything you need was available in the room and the place in general is welcoming. B&B ran by a lovely family.

Beautiful bed and breakfast. Its obvious that a lot of hard work and effort has been put into the braemount by its owners. Thank you for a wonderful stay Emma and Jeff

Lovely property in a good location just a short walk to Bowness centre. Very picturesque in the snow and the new owners made us all feel very welcome with coffee and mince pies on arrival. Room was very comfortable with a lovely huge bed and very clean. Breakfast was also excellent. I will definitely stay there again next time I visit Bowness.
