Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are doing things a little differently.

All measures have been put into place to ensure you the safest stay possible.

Chilled Weekend

Booked last minute and got a room in The Lodge which was very clean and comfortable. Hotel set in lovely gardens only 5 minutes walk to the centre of Bowness.
Breakfast was first class with an amazing choice of fresh fruits,pastries,cereals etc. The selection of cooked meals was very good and very tasty.
The only negative was squeaky floorboards in the room which I accept can be expected in a building of this age Mr Dodds 30th September 2013

Enjoyable Break

We had a lovely couple of days, staff and food were excellent but the room decor was rather dated and the WFI did not work unless we hung over the balcony. Would certainly go back again though. Mrs Waring 28th September 2013


Super Quality hotel

The Burn How significantly exceeds its 3star status in accommodation, presentation and the quality and style of food. The staff in this comfortable hotel are friendly and the service excellent. My wife and I were impressed witn our first stay and this more recent two night break lived up to our expectations. Mr Abel 23rd September 2013


Thank you for a wonderful stay

As two elderly widows, one of whom had never visited the Lake District before, we were not sure what to expect or how we would be received in hotels. The Burn How gave us a lovely comfortable room, truly beautiful food and the most friendly and helpful staff you could wish for. Thank you Burn How, I hope one day we will be able to revisit and will be recommending you to everyone we know. Mrs Nicholls 23rd September 2013



We had a fantastic stay again at the burnhow, this is the 2nd time we have stayed the first time as a family and this weekend on our own. Our room was lovely, very spacious with a balcony allowing us to enjoy the sunshine on Saturday. The bed was huge and very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious, the best breakfast of any hotel we have stayed in the lakes. We will definately be back. Thanks Mr Fleming 20th September 2013


Excellent two days

Just spent two days and two nights at the Burn How Garden hotel in Bowness. We have been several times before and as always had an excellent time, good food, very nice room, excellent staff. Well done, can’t wait to stay in the future

Lovely service.
Clean spacious rooms.
Delicious breakfast.
Lovely gardens.

We recently had a lovely 2 night stay here. We were 2 couple on a weekend of recreational walks and drinking.
Not prefect, but not far off – Happily stay here again.
All in all very good
