Interesting Stuff Nearby:
Blenheim Lodge is an AA 4-Star Bed and Breakfast tranquilly situated and nestling into the slopes of Brant Fell, with en-suite rooms that boast far-reaching and even outstanding panoramic views of Lake Windermere and the fells. This peaceful Bed and Breakfast in Bowness on Windermere is particularly convenient for The Dales Way walkers, being located a literal half to 1 minute walk from The Dales Way long distance footpath itself. Indeed, one of our bedrooms is named The Dalesway, after the well-loved walking trail it overlooks. (The Dalesway is the only bedroom we have that does not have a view of Lake Windermere, since it overlooks The Dales Way and the woods and fields of Brant Fell it traverses at the back of our house instead.)
Blenheim Lodge Guesthouse is conveniently situated a close 2-5 minutes’ walk to all local amenities and attractions, including Lake Windermere and Bowness Bay and Pier, The Old Laundry Theatre, and The World of Beatrix Potter. Bowness itself is a a busy place full of hustle and bustle with shops, restaurants, pubs, and many other local amenities; but just walk or drive the couple of minutes uphill to us at Blenheim Lodge, and you will leave all the noise, traffic, and crowds behind. At Blenheim Lodge, you can literally hear a pin drop!
We have 11 bedrooms at Blenheim Lodge: 10 bedrooms have shower en-suites; and one bedroom has a private bathroom with a clawfoot slipper bath and handheld shower over it. Each room is named and has been individually decorated and furnished to reflect the character of our 1868 house. It is unusual to find beautifully furnished en-suite single bedrooms with views in Bowness and Windermere, but we have three single rooms as well as eight double rooms, of which one of the latter can also be used for twin or triple occupancy. We also have a lovely guest lounge with Lake Windermere and fell views for guests to relax in after a busy day out. Sit by the triple bay windows with a cuppa, enjoy the views, and put your feet up!
We are fortunate at Blenheim Lodge to have a private car park for staying guests to use. We only offer Bed and Breakfast, but there are numerous local places to eat and drink and also plenty of shops where you can buy food to bring with you for your day’s hike. There are also walkers’ shops in Bowness for last minute requirements you might need for your walks.
Blenheim Lodge would suit guests looking for a quiet, comfortable, and friendly place to stay. If you enjoy having views of Lake Windermere and fells directly from your bedroom window, and if you like the convenience of local amenities without having to contend with the fumes and noises of busy traffic and crowds, and if you also enjoy doorstep walks onto open fell, then please do contact us to find out more and to book your accommodation at Blenheim Lodge.
Many of the houses on Brantfell Road, Bowness, share the same post code. To find us, please drive up Brantfell Road until near the top where there will be a last lamp post on your left, and a grit bin at the end of a private lane on your right. Turn into that lane and drive or walk a few yards into our car park.
