Lovely mid week break

Cannot recommend highly enough this guest house. Lovely welcome, from the start. The room was immaculate, furnished well, comfy bed, and a useful seating area. Shower room was new and spotless. The breakfasts are amazing - freshly cooked and nothin too much trouble. The location is about halfway between Windermere town and the lakeside at bowness, either is a 10 minute walk.

Long weekend in the Lakes

Lovely guesthouse with free parking 15-20 minute walk to the lake. Great hosts could not do enough for us. Amazing room and fantastic bathroom immaculate. Freshly cooked breakfast.

Will definitely return.

Best in the Lakes

Hubby and I have just returned for a 1 night stay at Hawksmoor, booked at the last moment. We received a lovely welcome from Philippa with a hot drink and home made shortbread, and she offered us a free upgrade to a larger room that had become free. The room was spotlessly clean and well decorated, with it's own balcony overlooking the glade at the back of the house and a HUGE bed! The breakfast was delicious and piping hot and the ladies serving couldn't have been more helpful. The property is ideally suited, being half way between Bowness and Windermere, both of which are only a very short walk away. We would recommend this guesthouse to anyone, and will certainly be coming back when we get the chance! Thanks again!

Spent four days at Hawksmoor. The rooms were spacious and clean. The food was delicious with a good selection. It is located within walking distance of both Windermere and Bowness. Philippa and Trevor treated us like royalty. Highly recommended!

Amazing Service

Booked this due to the online reviews and it was even better than I could have hoped for. The thought and planning that has gone into this place is fantastic. We stayed in room 12, this was our 10th wedding anniversary treat plus we love visiting the Lakes.

I loved the very high standard in the room, very clean, plenty of sockets, control over the heating including bathroom underfloor, mini fridge and lovely balcony. The other half loved having a proper big TV and the huge bed! Another bonus was the excellent wifi, very useful for checking the weather and places to visit!

The welcome was very genuine and the offer of tea and coffee on arrival with the best shortbread ever meant we had to have seconds.

The breakfast we also loved, the variety was impressive and its all local, cooked to order and the service was excellent, nothing is ever too much trouble. Our favourite, eggs benedic on portobello mushroom.

We slept very well and when I requested a different pillow as I suffer neck problems there were no issues, we returned to find a selection of alternative pillows.

Without doubt we'll be back to this very peaceful guesthouse, we loved the walking distance to the towns, being able to leave the car behind was a bonus. Next time I'll need to remember our swimming kit and get use of the local spa.

Thank you Hawksmoor for a great stay and making our wedding anniversary so special.
