Sculptured over thousands of years by nature and by Man, The Lake District is one of the most beautiful and unspoilt places in Britain.

The ravages of time, the Lakeland weather and the many visitors can take their toll on this fragile environment. At The Burn How Garden House Hotel we’re helping to care for this living landscape by financing vital conservation work. In 2000 we joined the Tourism & Conservation Partnership as an Associate Member and since then have supported their aims to raise funds from visitors and tourism businesses to protect and enhance the natural beauty of the Lake District. Now known as Nurture Lakeland, you can read about how your stay at the Burn How contributes to supporting our fragile Lakeland environment.

Post Knott
Not far from the hustle and bustle of Bowness, nestled under Brantfell and a short distance from the hotel lies Post Knott. The Burn How are working with The National Trust to improve footpath repairs and introduce way marking along the route. For more information please visit the Nuture Lakeland website (see below).
