"Magnificient panoramic views" -- The AA Hotel Guide 2017

Why We Love It

  • This family-run hotel is 15 minutes' walk from Bowness-on-Windermere
  • It has views over the town and Lake Windermere
  • There's a recently refurbished indoor pool, a sauna and steam room, plus free Wi-Fi and parking


The Lake District is a "storybook realm of hills, stonewalled fields, forests, whitewashed cottages, and clear waters", according to National Geographic. Set above the lakeside town of Bowness-on-Windermere, the family-run Hillthwaite House Hotel offers pretty views over the national park's largest lake and the mountains beyond.

Bowness-on-Windermere Pier is 20 minutes' walk from the hotel; from there you can catch a boat to take in the views. Prices start at £8 for an adult cruise ticket. Hill Top, the house Beatrix Potter bought with the royalties from her books, is now a National Trust property and is 30 minutes' drive away. The town of Kendal, best known for its mint cake, is a 20-minute drive. For an idyllic mix of limestone and woodland landscape, Whitbarrow Nature Reserve is around 30 minutes' drive.

The hotel serves cream tea from 2-4pm. Views are impressive in the restaurant, and you can dine out on the elevated stone terrace or in the conservatory. In cooler months, you can cosy up in front of the warming fire with a book and a drink -- there are local ales on tap in the bar, as well as a good selection of spirits and wines.

Water wasn't hot in the evening and early morning due to boiler problem which we were not advised about. Room only available 2.30pm when had early check in on booking. Also had emailed hotel advising celebrating 40th Birthday but Hotel did nothing to acknowledge this which I was upset about.

The food was excellent and the staff serving it were also excellent - friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The menu was a little restricted and an item was "off" each night.
Other Comments
The quality of the room was poor. The bed was big and comfortable, but the décor was shabby, a light bulb was missing, the bathroom door rattled when the window was open and the shower dripped.

The scenery is stunning and we were blessed with gorgeous weather which enabled us to sit on the terrace on Sunday evening looking down on Lake Windermere.
