Our room looked over the road and due to the traditional...

The Old Court House is a fantastic B&B in the heart of Bowness, just five minutes from all the restaurants and pubs. The owner is lovely and so friendly, and recommended lots of things to do. The room was perfect and so cosy, and the bed was the most comfortable bed I've been in away from home! The breakfast was...

Just stayed here for the one night for my husbands birthday. I booked it last minute and was lucky they had one room left. We have been to Bowness many times and this was a great find. Lovely spotless room, location brilliant and staff was very welcoming with a nice breakfast before we checked out. Lovely character to the place...

Well-situated towards the upper end of Bowness, this B&B suffered by comparison with the others we stayed in on our Dales Way hike. It was far from a bad B&B: 3 stars is a perfectly acceptable rating. Our bed was comfortable, the welcome pleasant and we had a good meal for breakfast. It's also perfectly situated for access to several...

Thanks for your review, sorry about the small bathroom but we cannot make it any larger without taking more room off the bedroom, this is why we like to give it (if possible) to our 1 night stays which is what you were. I'm glad though that you found your trip pleasant enough. It was very nice to meet you...
