About the hotel
The Royal Oak is a small, busy, family run Inn with a warm welcoming atmosphere for the walker, tourist and business visitor alike. Our traditional Inn is non-smoking throughout, and with no late residents bar last orders are at 11pm weekdays and 12pm weekends. We are long standing member of CAMRA with a minimum of five real ales at any one time.
Situated in the very heart of Bowness on Windermere, The Royal Oak is literally a stone's throw from the Bowness Bay piers, where you can take in the stunning views across Lake Windermere and perhaps board a steamship cruise. We are only a few minutes' walk from the many traditional craft and gift shops and only five minutes from The World of Beatrix Potter. Our Inn is proud to say it is the official finishing point of Alistair Wallace's 'The Dalesway Walk' and the starting point of his guide 'The Lake to Lake Walk'. The Royal Oak has a variety of double rooms most en-suite with the exception of two which share a bathroom and for which bathrobes are provided. Each room has tea/coffee making facilities, radio alarm clock, TV and a hair dryer. Free Wi-Fi connection is available. Whilst our rooms vary in size, they are, without exception, extremely comfortable and are traditionally styled with a homely feel. We are widely renowned for our kind hearted hospitality and, of course, for 'The Royal Oak Full English' breakfast! Evening meals are offered and car parking is available. All our meals are prepared from the fresh, locally sourced, ingredients. Please ring in advance with any specific dietary requirements (015394 43970).

Very friendly and excellent location
The staff are very friendly and helpful with everything, it was always service with a smile.
The room was tastefully decorated and very comfortable plenty of hanging and draw space. Shower room was very good with heated towell rail and towels were changed daily. The room was visited every day and all consumables replenished. A hearty breakfast every morning set us up for the day and on an evening we had some excellent beer and wine in the bar. We didn't get a chance to try the meals but the menu was very good and they were always busy which speaks volumes for a pub that has a lot of competition in the area. We will hopefully be going back.
A Great Find!
Accommodation was very comfortable, and I passed a great time in the bar with the other guests and locals. Warm log fire, delicious lamb chops in the evening, and a super-copious breakfast the next day.
