The Burn How Garden House Hotel is a boutique Victorian house with cottages a short stroll from Lake Windermere and a 5-minute walk from the village of Bowness-on-Windermere, where you'll find "trinket shops, cafés, ice-cream stalls and lakeside seats" (Rough Guides).

The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction, where you can learn about the author's life and meet some of her favourite characters, including Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddle-Duck, is a 5-minute walk away.

The room we had was furnished with a double and a singal bed. The room was big enough to take a king side bed and still retain the single bed.

As this was a deal we did not get one of their more upto date rooms but there was absolutely nothing wrong with the room we were given. The staff were fantastic and the service was superb. Food was amazing. On some deals you are given a different menu with just a few choices on it. It was not the case at the Burn How and what we did choose was amazing. As we could not book an extra night at the Burn How due to availability of rooms, we booked in at the Macdonald. I can honestly say that Burn How is superior to that hotel. Anyone who pays a premium to stay at the Macdonald does not know what they are missing at the Burn How. Definitely using this hotel in future.
