Just came back from a very enjoyable and relaxing weekend for our 25th wedding anniversary. Arrived to a lovely smiling young lady at reception who signed us in and showed us to our room/chalet. On entering we saw an envelope and inside was a anniversary card which was a lovely gesture. We were there for just bed and breakfast. Very...

We cannot allow another return visit to Burn How to pass without yet again extolling it's virtues. This is a hotel set apart. Why? The welcome from Mike and the staff. The clean, beautifully decorated rooms. The breakfasts - nowhere could there be more choice of fruits, cereals, etc., and our full Cumbrian served piping hot and cooked to perfection....

We stayed here to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary and could not have chosen better. From the four poster bed, balcony, swivel/ recline armchairs with footstool in our room, to the excellent food we felt truly spoiled. Breakfast was a feast with fresh fruit platters, yogurts cereals, seeds, and delights such as eggs benedict, royale and florentine, or a hefty...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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 of the bedrooms are located outside of the main building within the private grounds making the stay peaceful and relaxing for the discerning guest. You can take picturesque walks from the hotel, or cruise on Lake Windermere, and if you take the Post Knott walk and you find the hotels bench, bring back the inscription and you will have a drink on us. For the shopping magnets find a special Lakeland gift in the village only two minutes walk away. On your return from a full day, relax and meet friends or family in the congenial atmosphere of the lounge and bar, or on pleasant summers evening sit out on the patio and take in the beautiful surroundings. Relax in the comfort of your room choosing from modern chalet style to four poster or traditional bedrooms. Most have private sun terraces. All have ensuite bathrooms, colour televisions, telephones and hot beverages. Rooms on the ground floor have direct access to the rose garden and patio, with some having disabled facilities. There is ample free parking available. Experience English and French Cuisine made only from the freshest produce and served in the style in which Burn How Garden House Hotel is famous. Three courses and coffee is around £35.00 Per person. At the end of the day relax with family and friends in the congenial atmosphere of the lounge and bar or on a pleasant summers evening take in the beautiful surroundings of the patio and gardens. Shoppers and browsers will delight in the speciality stores and attractions in nearby Windermere and Bowness. Whilst a drive over the Hard Knott pass is for the courageous with its 1 in 3 and 2.5 Gradients - but the views are spectacular. ... more   less
