“Super reception, accomodations.”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

We felt very welcome & at home here. Management very eager to please.
Accomodations clean, quiet & comfortable.
Was surprised at how built-up the area was. I was expecting a more rural setting.
Would definitely go back!

We stayed here with friends for 2 nights. The guest house is about halfway between Windermere and Bowness making it handy for walking to shops and eating places. Our room was really lovely and the bathroom had a heated towel rail and underfloor heating. We were made to feel very welcome by Trevor who gave us lots of info about the area. The breakfast was excellent with a selection of options to suit everyone. We felt nothing was too much trouble for our hosts and we would stay here again if visiting Windemere.
Thank you Trevor and Phillipa.

Room Tip: Room 1 is a lovely big room

We decided to spend 2 nights in Windermere to break the drive to Scotland and ran into a few troubles finding somewhere due to half term holidays so splashed out on a luxury double room at Hawksmore on the strength of Trip Adviser reviews. It reminds me of the old style guest house of my childhood with a very modern makeover. A property with parking is a must in Windemere and Hawksmoor is ideally situated for walking to Windmere or Bowness however our room was very quiet overlooking the wood and stream. The bedroom has all mod cons and has the most high tech bathroom I've ever come across! For a luxury double I would have expected the room to have been bigger. The breakfast was excellent and all the staff were delightful and helpful. I believe the breakfast room can't accommodate everyone at the same time so you might experience a wait, we didn't, and it is a little bit boarding house style, with a few oddities like a beautiful fresh fruit salad served out of a large plastic bowl! As for Windemere and Bowness they are very busy, touristy spots and if I was planning a future holiday in The Lake District I would definitely not base myself here but it was a very good stopover spot.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review of the Hawksmoor, we do appreciate all of your comments. It is true we do have a relay over the breakfast period but we are actually very fortunate as our ratio of rooms to tables is very high and although it can happen that customers do have to wait it is very seldom. If we have small family groups and tables of four it can make it a little tricky for us but we do try our very best to seat everyone quickly and look after them the best we can.
We do agree Windermere and Bowness can be quite busy, especially during the school holidays, and are not as rural as some of the other places in the Lakes, however most of our customers do choose here because it's very easy to get to and is an excellent base to get about to the rest of the Lakes but also does have a good mixture of Restaurants and Pubs to choose from. Thank you once again for your review and we hope you enjoy the rest of your trip to the UK. Kind Regards. Trevor and Philippa

Great B&B, lovely room, great location (could walk up to the town or down to the lake easily). The breakfast was wonderful- excellent vegetarian options. Loved the natural products in the bathroom too (Love the Lakes range).
We didn't realise we could use the local spa until we arrived, so didn't bring our swimming things- if we come again we will come prepared!

Great b&b! Lovely room, very comfortable bed, plus nice bathrooms, including high quality toiletries.
Staff were incredibly welcoming and always friendly.
Breakfast offered a plethora of options; the full veggie English was great - perfect fuel for getting up the mountains!!
Highly recommended!

We stayed here for a 2 night mid week break. The B&B is very easy to find and is in easy walking distance from both Bowness and Windermere. On arrival, we were greeted with a warm welcome and offered a hot drink. We were shown around the B&B and the room, including how to order a DVD, turn up the under-floor heating and where to help ourselves to more tea, coffee, milk etc if we needed it. The room was lovely, clean and comfortable and the wet room was fab. Every member of staff was friendly and attentive and the breakfast was generous and well cooked. A great place to stay.

We had a lovely couple of nights here and would definitely come back again. When we arrived we were given some nice tea with the most amazing shortbread biscuits then shown to our room, which surpassed all expectations. We had a double bed and single, and it backed onto the back garden with a little stream running behind it. Falling asleep in that lovely bed to the sound of the stream was the best!
The toiletries were really nice and the bathroom was incredible. Great shower and very clean and modern. Breakfast was really nice and all locally sourced. Absolutely delicious.
It's in a great location and very walkable to both Bowness and Windermere. I wouldn't change a thing and hope I will be back soon!

Room Tip: Choose the room that faces onto the forest.
