Just a few minutes away from the centre of Bowness, with off road parking. Check in was not until 4pm but this was not really a problem for us. Our room was in the annex which we were not aware of when booking and smelt damp. There were bottles of water and biscuits but did not realise our everyday teabags had not been replenished until wanting a cuppa in the morning! The landlady was pleasant and chatty and the breakfast was very good. Would have liked a stronger cup of tea though - only one tea bag in a pot for two people - it was very weak and no amount of stirring helped! Bowness is a good base to other places in the Lakes and all in all we enjoyed our stay - the rules didn't worry us.
