Bowness, Oakbank House
We had an amazing time at Oakbank House. The location was perfect. The staff were very welcoming on our arrival and nothing was any trouble to them. They always had a smile on there face. Our room was room number 4 it was a superior room with a lake view. This was beautiful and so clean. What i am trying to say is i cannot fault this bed and breakfast. It was 10out of 10.

Short break in Bowness
Ideally located just minutes from the shops, restaurants and bars in Bowness. We managed to park in front of the house meaning that we could see our car from our room which we liked. Our room (9) on the top floor had a comfy bed and pillows and towels that looked brand new. The dual aspect windows gave us lovely views of the lake and neighbouring gardens. There was enough storage for our clothes etc. Breakfast each day was very good with lots of choice and good quality ingredients. The lady in the breakfast room was very friendly! We only have one negative in that we found the paintwork in the bedroom was quite marked as was some of the soft furnishings. Having chosen the property from its photos we did feel a little disappointed. However this would not prevent us from returning as we understand that the room is due for an update soon. We loved Bowness and would like to return again and would certainly stay at Oakbank House again!
