About this property

Blenheim Lodge

Blenheim Lodge nestles tranquilly into countryside and boasts stunning Lake and fell views. Our hilltop guesthouse is secluded BUT not isolated, and we invite you to make it YOUR ‘home from home’.

Each room is unique, many with antique pieces. Quality handmade beds provide restful sleep. All rooms have Lake or woodland views. We offer single, double (including 4-posters), twin and triple rooms.

Our guesthouse is eco-friendly, and we buy local where possible. We are walker, golfer, biker, cyclist, and angler friendly.

A convenient 2-5-minute walk to the attractions and amenities of Bowness centre and Windermere's shore, Blenheim Lodge offers a peaceful haven from noisy main road traffic, crowds and late night revellers. Stay with us for the best of both worlds, not forgetting our fab Lake views too!

We have onsite parking ONLY FOR STAYING GUESTS.

NOTE: Blenheim Lodge offers ROOM ONLY bookings. There are many local eateries 2-5 minutes' walk open for breakfasts, lunches, teas and dinners.

Good location if you don’t mind hills. Bowness is a very nice village and a cruise on Lake Windermere was very good with a stop off at lovely Ambleside.

Wouldn't recommend. Not good value for money.
The room was far to small. My wife and i mamed it the shoe box. Location good but the climb up the hill if you were impaired in any way was far to difficult. Should be mentioned in hotel location. Ovreall feeling wouldn't recommend.

A great stay…
The whole experience was brilliant, within an hour of booking the owner contacted me to advise of the Covid restrictions in place and offered me to cancel with a full refund even know I booked with the no cancellation refund policy. We chose to continue as the Covid measures in place would not affect us and I’m glad we did. The check in process was quick and seamless and we soon had our bags in the room and then went to the village to get dinner…. The room was very clean and spacious with generous storage options. We met Janz, who gave us great options for places to eat and visit while we was there and was very helpful. Everything we needed was available and if it wasn’t you just had to ask. Fresh milk was available for tea which was a nice change to the long life options you normally get. The location was perfect. Parking in the town was a nightmare but with the location of the lodge, you could easily walk to the town centre, where there was bus stops talking you to other nearby places as well as the ferry. Janz even told us of a shortcut we could take which cut out the steep hill. We enjoyed our visit to the Lake District and if we ever decide to return then I’d definitely stay here again.

Nice stay in Bowness on Windermere
The lodge was nice and clean, tucked away from the main street up a bit of a hill. The room was good but we were disappointed to have not received breakfast due to covid. A substitute such as a fruit bowl or packaged cereal/croissants could easily have been provided to make up for it whilst still keeping covid measures.

Super views of the lake and great location!
Stayed on the Langdale room. We truly had the best and most panoramic view of the wonderful lake Windermere in all of our many stays in the Lakes. Lovely room and a lovely weekend. A pleasure staying at Blenheim and it was just a short walking distance to bars restaurants and shops. Very convenient and the hosts were pleasant and attentive to our needs

Not the best place to stay .
Not for the faint hearted as there’s a big hill to climb to get to the property. Wasn’t told until we paid a non refundable full payment that they were sticking to the COVID rules, so on the advert there’s a lounge to sit in but it was locked so we weren’t allowed in there. The owners were friendly but seemed very disorganised . I’m sure on the booking it said with breakfast but was told there wasn’t any . £350 for two week day nights was way over the top for the room no 7 we stayed in that was very small extremely hot with no fan or air on in the room . Only served fresh milk in small jugs so had to keep asking for it , this was left outside the door . It really wasn’t the best place to stay for our 35 wedding anniversary. Wasn’t very private as owner parked his car on the hill just underneath our window so we couldn’t have the curtains open whilst in the room as it made us feel uncomfortable every time he went passed the window which was often .In all we were extremely dissatisfied and disappointed.Nice view of the lake by the front entrance.
