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 hotel has print outs for the Post Knott walk which starts five minutes' from the property.
