“Nice and Warm Guest House”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

Stayed at Hawksmoor Guest House during my visit to the UK lake district in mid Aug 2013.
We had the family room at the ground floor.
Nice, clean, comfort and modern room.
Friendly owner and helpful staff.
Every thing is fantastic!

Wow! What a fantastic place to stay! VERY difficult to fault and no disappointments from our stay!
This guesthouse is exactly what we wanted and more. Philippa and the team give OUTSTANDING service at every turn, from breakfast to any questions regarding the area. Always willing to help with a smile, and making every customer feel as if you have stepped into the best holiday you will have which becomes evident it will be.
The breakfast every morning is amazing. Fresh, local and organic items served daily with a menu to pick from.
The rooms are outstanding, and I would recommend room 14 which is the one that we stayed in. Beautifully decorated, modern bathroom with even a TV in the bath area. The view from our room was stunning wood lands and a stream, very tranquil and perfect for relaxation. The room comes with locally made hand wash and toiletries which were great, we even bought one as a souvenir to continue to fantastic memories we made there. I requested to make our stay a little more special with balloons, champagne and even ordered a cake from the local bakery as it was my partner’s birthday and I am happy to say it was all done flawlessly. I am so impressed with the level of service and the quality of the hotel, we cannot wait to return. We are thinking of trying the scenery during winter time to see it in a different light.

Room Tip: Room 14 has a gorgeous balcony towards the woodlands.

Stayed at Hawksmoor Guest House for a short break mid August .It is rated No. 1 guest house in Bowness and it certainly lived up to it's reputation. We had the last room available a small double on the second floor (room 5). It was small but had everything you needed and was imacculately clean. Shower room was small with a sloping ceiling so was a little snug for my over 6 foot husband.Breakfasts were excellent and cooked to order. Conveniently situated between Windemere and Bowness 10 min stroll in either direction. Would definitely stay again perhaps be lucky enough to get one of the bigger rooms next time

My husband & I have stayed in the guesthouse previously and tried to book over the Internet based on our previous stay but sadly it wouldn't let us for 4 nights, we phoned and Philippa explained we could stay for 4 nights but in 2 separate rooms which I was happy about. The switch of rooms went very quickly and smoothly, they carried our bags and moved everything we didn't have to do a thing. It was perfect, we thought we may have to wait. Our rooms were gorgeous, We loved the tempur mattress, best nights sleep I've had in ages and the rooms were beautifully decorated. The bathrooms are lovely as well, we love the shower. My hubby enjoyed the cooked breakfast, I on the other hand prefer cold breakfasts and there is plenty to choose from. There is coffee, tea, sugar, milk in the reception area if you need it topping up. The staff are lovely, they go out of there way to make u feel welcome, there soo friendly. I wasn't feeling to well towards the end sadly but Philippa came out to say goodbye. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again. We find Philippa and Trevor warm and very welcoming; perfect hosts. Thanks for a lovely stay. Hope to see you again next year with our family hopefully. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this guesthouse.

Warm welcome with a cup of tea, dinner recommendations from Helen. Modern room (room 1) with high end fixtures and fittings. Beautiful bathroom. Tea and coffee making facilities. Extra comfortable mattress. Lovely owners lent us an umbrella for the 10 minute walk into town. Superb breakfasts with lots of choice. I would stay here again but would prefer a different room because room 1 suffered from traffic noise and this interrupted my sleep on both nights.

Philippa and Trevor - your Guesthouse surpasses any other place we have stayed in! My husband and I have been to many places around the world and stayed in many hotels/B&Bs/Guesthouses but your place truly stands out and one that we will never forget. Having come from Australia and driving all around England, the Lake District was our favourite - not just because of the beauty of the area, nor the wonderful location between Bowness and Windermere, but it was your special touches, a special afternoon tea, your warm welcome, suggestions from Helen, such friendliness from all the staff - all so outstanding but truly sincere. The breakfasts were to die for, Room 11 was just perfect! The bed was so comfortable, while the luxurious bathroom simply sparkled. We are so happy we booked for 4 nights with you. After exploring during the day it was so relaxing to come "home" to the most beautiful, spacious room. Thank you for your hospitality. We have already recommended your place to a couple coming in September. Should we make it back to England again from Australia we will definitely return.
