Hotel accommodation just a stone's throw from Lake Windermere. The ideal location to explore the English Lake District.

This unique Lake District hotel only two minutes stroll from Lake Windermere and the village of Bowness, is an oasis of peace and tranquillity.

The Burn How’s unique layout is refreshingly different to most hotels; all the bedrooms are located outside of the main building within the gardens – winner of Windermere in Bloom 2023.
Each room is provided your own dedicated car parking space and many have a private balcony.

Hidden in the centre of the Lake District’s leading destination town, this Garden retreat offers a very different experience from which to discover the most beautiful corner of England.

Amazing room and even better staff
Stayed here for a night a few weeks ago and wow what a fabulous stay. We loved the view from the hotel, the surrounding areas, the breakfast was amazing and the staff were the best, especially Aimee.We’re planning to come back in a few weeks, cannot wait!
Just a lovely, easy, and restful place
Great location, beautiful gardens, excellent breakfast, and lovely, well equipped and clean room with outside space (superior double)! All staff really helpful and friendly. You can catch a lakes area hop on/off bus from the bus stop 7 mins walk away. Also the various boat trip options from the pier. Including self drive mini motor boats Fab for my short break. Will return!
Especially friendly and homely hotel
A brilliant 3 night stay at Burn How House Garden Hotel. All staff friendly and helpful nothing was too much trouble. Melissa in the restaurant looked after us so well the food is excellent the best breakfasts I’ve had in a long time. Dinner choice brilliant house menu or a la carte mix and match. Highly recommend this hotel and will definitely return.
Splendid. Would book here again
Booked a dinner, bed and breakfast package at Burn How for my parents. They loved everything about this hotel, the garden room, the breakfast, the restaurant food, the staff. I also found the staff helpful when dealing with my booking from another country/time zone, and not following their usual payment process. The location is also great, being quieter than central Bowness/Windermere, but only a short stroll to the lake or the town centre. My parents say they would love to stay there again, which says it all really.
Fabulous
