Our stay at Holmlea Guest House in Bowness-on-Windermere was excellent. The room was very cozy, warm and clean with wardrobe, TV, hair dryer, clean towels and toiletries provided. The whole place was very tidy and staff was very helpful.
There was quite a good choice of breakfast meals and also a guest parking lot. As guests of Holmlea Guest House we could also enjoy a pool and steam room in a near by hotel free of charge. The location is very handy as well as it's around 3 mins walk from the town center. I would definitely recommend this place and wouldn't hesitate to return.

Holmlea is a Victorian Lakeland stone guest house offering comfortable bed and breakfast accommodation. We take pride in looking after our guests and we can assure you of a friendly welcome in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. Recently awarded TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2016.

Great location, Holmlea is moments away from Lake Windermere. Famous for its spectacular scenery, lake cruises and wonderful romantic scenic walks.

Bowness village is close by for restaurants, cafés and specialist shopping.

We have comfortable bedrooms with high standards of cleanliness throughout and we serve wonderful breakfasts using only the finest locally sourced produce.

A stay at Holmlea is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday and is the ideal base for visiting the many attractions within the Lake District National Park. Take a stroll around the marina or lakeshore walk. There are tennis courts, crazy golf and an 18-hole pitch and putt area or just simply picnic on Glebe park and admire the breath-taking scenery across the lake.

We are ideally located for walkers starting or finishing the Dalesway.
