Blenheim Lodge offers bed and breakfast accommodation with wonderful panoramic views of Lake Windermere to the mountains and the surrounding area. Set in National Trust acres in Bowness on Windermere, this peaceful guest house is located in the heart of the Lake District National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Blenheim Lodge Guest House:
We offer a variety of rooms all beautifully decorated to provide that little bit of comfort we all want when we stay somewhere. Our guest house is unique, offering pretty characterful rooms, many with cherished antique pieces of furniture. We even have two stunning 4-poster bedrooms. All our bedrooms feature handmade deep pocket-sprung mattresses for a great night’s sleep, for which we get many compliments! Ten of the bedrooms have views to Lake Windermere and the fells and one has views over the countryside. Nine rooms have en-suite shower rooms, and one has a private bathroom with a clawfoot slipper bath.
There is a lounge for guests to use, again with stunning views. On arrival, we like to welcome our guests to relax in here with a cuppa and biscuits.
When you stay at Blenheim Lodge, a highlight is the quality breakfast you are offered. We use local produce where possible including succulent sausages and hand-cured bacon freshly made by our local butcher and delivered to our door. Our breakfast eggs come from a local free-range farm. We have a wide menu from the Full English to fresh fruit, scrambled, poached and fried eggs, pastry, yoghurts and cereals. If you have any dietary requirements, please do let us know when you are booking.
There is so much to see and do in the area, with many lakes, fells, towns and villages to explore, and plenty of walking and cycling trails as well as other activities, such as boating, ghyll-scrambling, and the Via Ferrata. Visit the home of Beatrix Potter, the famous creator of Peter Rabbit, or Dove Cottage, one of the former homes of William Wordsworth, the Romantic poet who wrote the famous poem, “I wandered lonely as a cloud”. These places and many more to visit are all within easy striking distance of our Bowness B&B by private or public transport. It is even possible to hire a bike - including electric bikes - or buy a bus pass to explore and discover the Lake District National Park easily Text taken from thebandbdirectory.co.uk from our quiet but centrally located Bed and Breakfast.
The Dales Way Footpath:
Our B&B is the first one next to and en-route for The Dales Way Footpath, a long distance walk from Ilkley in in the North Yorkshire Dales to Bowness on Windermere in the Lake District National Park. We are perched on Brant Fell, with stunning views to Lake Windermere and beyond to the fells. There are plentiful walks from our house so that no transport is required, including three easily reachable viewpoints within 10-20 minutes’ stroll:
The Dales Way Seat: 1 minute walk from Blenheim Lodge to The Dales Way Seat offering gorgeous far-reaching views of Lake Windermere and the northwestern fells.
Post Knott: 10 minutes’ walk to this viewpoint where there is a bench to sit upon and enjoy excellent panoramic views of the 9.5-mile Lake Windermere.
Brant Fell: 20 minutes’ easy walk from Blenheim Lodge that repays the walker with 360-degree bird’s eye views of Lake Windermere to the distant fells of the Lake District National Park.
