“SUPERB -time after time”
Reviewed 28 March 2013

We are regular visitors to the Hawksmoor ( once or twice annually) and have nothing but high praise for the guesthouse and the 3 lovely people who make our stay worthwhile -Trevor, Phillipa & Helen . Their friendliness and helpful manner is just one of the reasons we return regularly

We have just returned from another 3 night break here ; breakfast is superb ,the rooms are of the highest standard (we have been in a few of them over the years) and the large bed was really comfortable .
This time we made use of the complimentary services offered by the Hawksmoor at the nearby Old England Lake Hotel & Spa - it was a lovely swim and sauna !
My wife and I really love this guesthouse and will continue to visit for many years to come - thank you to Trevor ,Phillipa and Helen

We arrived on the 14th March for a 2 night stay. This Guesthouse was selected based upon the reviews / accolades that have been received on tripadvisor of which they are fully deserved. Trevor, Phillipa and Helen ensure that your stay cannot be beaten anywhere else, and this I can confirm. As other reviews state, from the moment you arrive to the time when you leave you are very much looked after. A lovely cup of tea and coffee with biscuits on arrival, sound advice of the area and good general conversation show a real care for the clientele that visit their establishment.

We had room 12 and this was perfect in every aspect, and as Trevor said if anything was required we only need ask - we did not need to!!

Thank you to you all for a fabulous stay, we would have liked to have stayed for longer but can assure you we will return to your home for another excellent stay.

From the moment we stepped inside this gorgeous guesthouse, we knew it was special. We were both greeted so warmly and made to feel very welcome. The room was very spacious, spotless and extremely tastefully decorated. Beds were really comfortable and I had the best nights sleep in ages. The breakfast in the morning was yummy too. I had the cooked breakfast which was amazing. We were both sad to leave the Hawksmoor but I'm sure this won't be the last of our visits. Thank you to everyone at the Hawksmoor, it is clear that you work tirelessly in order to achieve perfection for your guests and you should be very proud of yourselves. I undertand why you are number one.

We chose to stay for 2 nights at the Hawksmoor because of the reviews on Tripadvisor, and I must say it was a very good decision.
We were greeted very warmly, and were offered a tea tray with lovely shortbread biscuits.
We stayed in Room 9 overlooking the front garden, a lovely cosy room, which catches the morning sun.
Everything in the room was spotlessly clean, and we couldn't find fault with anything.
Beautiful bathroom, with skylight window, and the added luxury of underfloor heating, perfect on a chilly morning.
The bed was very comfortable, and we both slept well.
Breakfast was spot-on, my husband asked for eggs Benedict, (which wasn't on the menu),
but they were more than happy to make these for him on Sunday morning.
Service was quick, attentive, and with a smile.
The Hawksmoor is situated in an ideal location, a short stroll to either Windermere, or Bowness and the beautiful lake.
Some great places to eat, you will be spoilt for choice.
Whatmore can i say? Book with confidence, you will not be dissapointed.

Well, what can I say that hasn’t already been said? A classic example of how a guesthouse should be run!
My husband, 5yr old son and I, have just returned from a weekend away and I have to say all the good reviews on here are very well deserved. There are two main things that I expect when staying anywhere and that is cleanliness and good service and the Hawksmoor delivered above and beyond on both aspects.
The room was spotless and the service perfect! The breakfast was superb with friendly, efficient staff and as we were only a 10/15min walk to either Bowness or Windermere, we really couldn’t ask for anymore.
All in all, we had a wonderful time and left feeling like it was money well spent and certainly hope to return in the very near future. Excellent!

We chose the guesthouse largely on the basis of previous tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. We were made to feel very welcome with nothing too much trouble to help us enjoy our 4 night stay. The latter being a very reasonably priced 4 for 3 offer! Other reviewers have said it all, but perhaps we could add two comments. Firstly, our special thanks to Helen in the breakfast room who brightened up our mornings and secondly to the excellent high speed wi-fi available throughout the guest house. Our room being the delightful Room 12 overlooking the woods at the back; see photo.
