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.

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.
Excellent quality
Just back from a two day break at Burn How. It is so relaxing, the staff are brilliant and very friendly. Nothing is too much trouble. The food is of a really good standard. I have no criticism whatsoever! Looking forward to going again next year, or earlier if I am lucky!
Excellent hotel, tucked away from crowds.
Stayed here for 2 nights with another family friend. Spacious clean rooms, barely 5 min walk from the lake front and esplanade. Space at back of rooms to sit and relax in shared garden space. Well manicured mature gardens all over. Lovely made to order breakfast. Nice staff, always smiling. Each room has allocated parking.
Really Great Place
Stayed here for 1 night and what a great place , lovely Chalet with large en suite double room with kingsize bed and car parking space outside the room , perfect location for lake or Bowness-on-Windermere town , and the breakfast was really good , will definitely stay again.
Short break in Bowness
Had a lovely stay here. Room was very large, warm room with very clean bathroom. Tea and coffee facilities in room also iron and hair dryer. Staff were very polite and helpful throughout our stay and we had superb breakfasts. Parking a real bonus just outside the chalet room. Would highly recommend
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!
