“Fantastic little guest housee”
Reviewed 18 August 2014 via mobile

Just got back from a weekend away here. We were greeted on arrival and made to feel welcome, we were shown our room then offered drinks and cakes in the breakfast room. The room was very comfortable and had everything you needed. There was a huge selection at breakfast time and the cooked breakfast was even presented well on plate, not just thrown on. Ian, Jenny and his staff were all very welcoming and friendly. It is in an ideal location just 3 minutes walk (approx) from the lake, so its in a quiet location away from all the hustle and bustle but still close enough to walk to the lake, shops, restaurants etc. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for 3 nights, and can honestly say, this is the best b&b in Bowness,

Welcome was so warm and we had homemade cake, tea etc and everything about our rom was great, fridge for wine, proper wine glasses, corkscrew, those little touches mean so much.

Comfy huge bed, lovely lovely place!!

Don't even get me started on the breakfasts, superb....!!!

Thoroughly enjoyable stay. I could not find any fault with Dene house. The room was spotlessly clean and the bed was amazing. Breakfast was 5 star and I would highly recommend Dene House. Thank you for a great stay.

We had a lovely stay at Dene House.From the minute we arrived we were made most welcome.When we arrived the owners were away,however the lady who welcomed us could not do enough for us.The weather at this time was fantastic,extremely hot,we were offered fans for both of the two rooms we had which was a godsend ,another plus was that each room had its own fridge for keeping drinks cool .The guest house benefits from a secluded position off the main road ,with ample terrace seating and shaded tables,which we used later on at night after eating out.Dene park is only a 5 min walk from all of the fantastic restaurants in Bo'ness and a further 2 mins from the lakes amenities .Breakfast wast excellent and the owners will cater for any dietary request and indeed any combination on their menu.Rooms were clean and spacious .Cleanliness throughout the guest house was what impressed us the most along with the owners and staffs attitude and attention to detail.I will be recommending this guest house to friends and family and if we end up in the Lake District again ,this will be our choice for accommodation

Room Tip: We were on the top floor which had a very sunny out look

Very friendly…perfect location. We had a fantastic stay at the lovely B&B in Bowness, the owners could not do enough for you. We had room No2 which a large tastefully decorated room with everything you’d want for a comfortable stay….a quality TV, docking station, fridge and a large comfortable bed. The breakfast had a fantastic choice to suit all tastes. We arrived at 9.15 in the morning and the owners generously allowed us to park or car and gave us maps for our days walking, the following day we were allowed to stay parked till 2.00 which again perfectly fitted our plans that day. There is plenty of off road parking and the best of all was the terrace and seating with parasols at the front of the property which we took advantage of after our breakfast. Wonderful stay will be back
