“Even better than the first and second time!!!”
Reviewed 29 January 2013

As you can see from the title of this review this was our third stay at our second home! We stayed for 2 nights over New Year and this time decided to splash out and stay in Room 11. What a fantastic room and the bathroom is to die for! We enjoyed every moment of our stay and did NOT want to leave. The bed is the MOST comfortable I have ever slept in - Philippa, please let me have the details of which Tempur mattress it is, although having googled them I'm not sure we could afford one :(
As before, the welcoming pot of tea and shortbread biscuits were very gratefully received. Loved the fact that the room had a fridge - handy for our NY bottle of bubbly!
I was very happy we had chosen this room for our winter stay as you tend to be in your room for longer when the weather is not so good so I feel we really did get value for money.
We will be in touch soon to book our spring/summer visit!
Thanks again to Philippa, Trevor and Helen.
Justine and Paul

Room Tip: Room 11 - great for a winter break, fantastic bathroom.

We stayed at the Hawksmoor for a long weekend at the end of January. From the reviews we read on Tripadvisor before making our booking we knew we'd be in for a treat, but Trevor and Philippa are so friendly and have surpassed themselves in providing quality comfort for their guests and I don't think there's anything more they could have done to make us more comfortable. We were a little concerned at the logistics of not having a car but the guest house is equidistantly located between Bowness & Windermere, and with the abundance of attractions less than a mile away for each it we found ourselves perfectly located.

If you're in any doubt, just read all the other great reviews for the Hawksmoor. I'm looking forward to my next stay!

Room Tip: Some rooms have added facilities but this is all detailed on the company's own website

I decided to get a break away for my wife and I - it was for our 16th Anniversary. The Hawksmoor looked like a nice place, but I did not read any reviews on it - we took a gamble and it payed off. The place is very well situated between Windermere and Bowness, We had a lovely greeting with tea and biscuits, a very comfortable room overlooking the brook into the woods. It was a nice big spotless and warm room. The hosts, Philipa and Trevor were very friendly to talk to knowledgeable about the area. The breakfasts were just excellent - so much to choose from.

All - in -all we had a very nice break here and would not hesitate to return.

From the minute you arrive, you are taken care of as if your royalty, from the home made shortbread on arrival to the service when your leaving, couldn't fault a thing. Breakfast was superb and the place was immaculate. Rooms spacious and beautifully decorated and maintained. Will definately return.

Room Tip: Room 10 was quiet and massive.

We stayed here for three nights with another couple and it was excellent. The rooms were first class and the attention to detail was perfect. The breakfasts were fantastic and certainly set us up for the day. Nothing was too much trouble even providing ice for our gin and tonics in the conservatory! We would recommend this guesthouse to anyone wanting a comfortable, relaxing break in a beautiful part of the country

I have stayed here with my boyfriend twice over the last year, once in february and once at the end of November. Both stays were very pleasant.

On the first trip we stayed in Room 11 (superior room), which was located at the front of the property, the room was gorgeous and the bathroom is amazing!! On our first trip we had a few issues which I believe would be a one off and should not put you off going here. When we arrived and were shown to our room there was a slight smell of paint and as the radiators went on and we spent more time in there it began to get overwhelming. We spent one night in here and by the morning we both felt rather groggy from paint fumes, we had also had to open the window to help with the fumes and got woken by the bin men at some very early hour. I am a very, very light sleeper though so for normal people this would have been fine. The next day I spoke to Philippa (the owner) if there was anything she could do, and within about 10 minutes she had another superior room set up for us and was helping us move our bags into Room 14, another gorgeous room!! Even better than the photos. We spent the rest of our stay here and had a very enjoyable time.

On our second visit we stayed in Room 14 again, has a balcony overlooking the woods (gorgeous views!) and it was a perfect stay. We visit the lakes about twice a year and this will definitely be the hotel we are staying in in the future.

Thanks Phiilippa and Trevor for our best stay in the lakes yet! xx

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel are quieter and have lovely views of the woods behind!
