Welcome to Dene House

Dene House is a striking 4 star Gold AA rated guest house on the edge of Bowness village in the Lake District. A seamless blend of both modern and traditional, we retain the original character of the building, which has served as a bed and breakfast for over 12 years, whilst offering all the modern conveniences of today.

Our wonderful location offers guests easy access to the village which is bursting with many pubs, shops & restaurants and Lake Windermere itself is just a three minute walk from our front door. We have recently achieved a certificate of excellence from Trip Advisor which is testament to the amount of guests we have returning year on year or recommending us to their family and friends.

So proud of our reputation, we strive to ensure the comfort of our guests and take great pride in the quality of our service, excellence of our breakfasts and superiority of our accommodation. We also have private, onsite parking for guest use.

We stayed for 2 nights bed and breakfast at the Dene Guesthouse (along with a couple of friends) and we were totally impressed by the standards presented hence our 5/5 overall satisfaction. Hearty English Breakfast! Anyone looking for the above qualities in a guesthouse need look no further than the Dene. Wonderful!
