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.

This is the most amazing hotel and the staff are wonderful also a short walk to town & Lake Windermere
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!
Wonderful weekend break for two
Comfortable, clean, spacious room with lovely garden view. Excellent breakfast and evening meals, the staff are so friendly and welcoming. There is free car parking and the location is brilliant, quiet area but only a few minutes walk from the lake and shops, pubs, cafes etc I will definitely be back.
Huge room and amazing gardens
Stayed here after walking the dales way. Gorgeous gardens with lovely birds to watch at breakfast. Friendly helpful staff. Huge rooms, motel style, with a nice balcony. Easy parking and good location for lake and Bowness shops.
Fabulous. Nothing to much trouble for the staff
Had an amazing time here. Our room was lovely and clean with extra measures in place. Check in smooth and quick. Breakfast was really nice and tasty. Thank you to the young man and Linda for a great stay.
The garden is superb; the hotel even more so!
We have stayed at the Burn How a number of times. The comfort is very good; the food excellent; and the staff (including proprietors) appear to have 'instant memory syndrome' each time we arrive. Happy staff produce very happy customers/visitors.
