“Pleasurable Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

Well situated between Windermere and Bowness. Rooms are very comfortable with super bathrooms and so spacious. More a small hotel than a guest house.
Breakfast was very good and the 'specials' a good idea and appreciated.
Philippa and Trevor were very welcoming.

I booked a last minute 2 night stay at Hawksmoor last week and I am so glad I did. When we arrived there was ample parking available and we were greeted by Phillipa who is very friendly and helpful without being overbearing. We were shown to our room - room 12 which was on the first floor. The room was huge, very tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. Huge, very comfy super king bed and plenty of storage space. The room also had a fridge which was great (don't think this is mentioned on the website). Room 12 also has a balcony which overlooks woodland and a brook which is just lovely. It was red hot so we had quite a few opportunities to sit outside and enjoy the peace & quiet. Lovely big bathroom too, great power shower and gorgeous smelling rose & geranium shower gel etc. So nice I bought some as it's available to purchase from the guesthouse :o)
The guesthouse is approximately a 10 minute walk to Bowness so is in a great location, although if you're not keen on hills I'd advise getting a taxi back - it only cost £3.50 from town. The breakfast here was spot on -excellent menu choice and cooked really well. Lovely breakfast room too, nice & quiet and the staff were very efficient and friendly.
I can't fault this place at all and would go as far a to say it's the nicest place I've stayed. The next time I visit the lakes I won't be looking to book anywhere else!

From check in to check out, it was a brilliant experience! we arrived by car and there was ample parking space. the hosts were very friendly and helpful and gave us great insight on what to visit in Lake District. we were two adults and a child and we had a good suite. the suite was pretty big in size. the breakfast was hot and fresh and they had good vegetarian options. location is great, it in between the towns of windermere and bowness(walking distance). would surely recommend.

Highly recommended. From your personal arrival greeting from Philippa and Trevor, with tea and shortbread in the conservatory, this guesthouse continues to excel with the quality of the rooms, the facilities, the helpful local information and the superb breakfasts (I particularly enjoyed the 'special of the day' smoked haddock with poached eggs for a change).

As others have said, the location is good, so you can choose to walk into Windermere or Bowness, and there is ample car park space.

Good people deserve to succeed and it's a pleasure to simply praise a couple for a job well done. Thank you both.

Don't hesitate, in my opinion just book it!

Our warm reception with tea & shortbread from Phillipa set us up for a lovely 2 nights here. We had room 6 with "wet room" bathroom fully accessible for all. Our windows opened onto the car park which was NOT a problem at all. Hawksmoor is halfway between Windermere & Bowness and there are plenty of good places to eat in either direction. A rainy Saturday didn't stop us enjoying a ferry trip to Lakeside & the motor museum (plenty for girls there too). Delicious breakfasts & warm hospitality. Thank you Phillipa and Trevor.

We stayed here for 3 nights. Not a thing to complain about. Check in was smooth and informative. The room and it's ensuite was gorgeous. Spotlessly clean. We had a balcony room which overlooked the stream behind the b&b. Sadly the weather didn't allow it to use it as much as we liked. Happy to cater to special dietary needs - one of us is lactose intolerant so we were given a jug of soya milk to keep in the fridge in our room. Tea making facilities provided (also two wine glasses and a bottle opener - nice little touch). Breakfast was gorgeous. Nothing to fault. Defo recommend staying here.

We stayed for two nights, having originally booked through booking.com but then booked direct with guest house as this ensures you are getting a room of your choice. We were warmly greeted by Helen (someone who straight from the off you can tell is very good at making the guests welcome and happy to suggest places to visit), and enjoyed a cup of tea on the conservatory before we were shown to our room. Trevor met us and kindly offered to carry our bags. We were in room 12 (which has a fridge - don't remember it saying so on website) which was very comfortable and had a balcony and view of woodland and stream. Breakfast was fantastic and set us up for the two days we were here. It has a feel of a hotel (calling it a b&b doesn't do it justice) but has a much warmer and family feel to it. On leaving we were met by Phillipa who was genuinely keen to know whether we enjoyed our stay and our trip. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit.

It is very well placed for walking to either Windermere or Ambleside.
