About the hotel
Friendly non-smoking Blenheim Lodge is situated in the heart of the lake district national park and boasts stunning lake and fell views from all our rooms. Nestling snugly into hillside acres of fields and woodlands, our secluded B&B is a tranquil retreat. Just a 5-minute walk from our guesthouse is Bowness town centre and Lake Windermere, where visitors can catch cruises on the Lake.
From our B&B, it is a minute’s stroll to the countryside behind our house which opens up to numerous pretty walks, including The Dales Way, and 4 viewpoints. Blenheim Lodge offers a homely comfortable base for guests to relax: handmade beds for rejuvenating sleep; tasty quality local produce; on-site private car park, and FREE WIFI. FREE country club membership and 2 FREE fishing permits are available to guests on a first come first served basis. Quoted below is what one of our guests said in his REVIEW ON TRIPADVISOR: ** 'Nothing, and l do mean nothing, is too much trouble for Janz and Robert Duncan, from adding an extra guest (our daughter) to sorting out a romantic sailing yacht and evening meal served on board. The Lodge wraps itself around you like a favourite cardigan, welcoming you with its warmth and comfort, from the cosy lounge to the elegant breakfast room and on up to the luxurious bedrooms with those views! Choosing from the extensive breakfast menu is a delight and the local food is cooked and served to perfection. The Lodge is steeped in a tranquil air that takes all the cares from you the moment you arrive. Just a matter of yards from the rear of the Lodge is a wooded walk where we encountered deer grazing in the evening, and views that make you proud to live in England. FOR THE MOST COMPLETE, WELCOMING AND UTTERLY DELIGHTFUL STAY YOU CANNOT FIND A BETTER HOST AND HOSTESS THAN ROBERT AND JANZ DUNCAN. We are regular visitors to the Lakes: Keswick, Ambleside, Coniston, etc. This Lodge cannot be bettered. Make sure you know that like many places in the hills it is a steep gradient to the Lodge but GOOD access to all areas, and a good sized marked car park with an easily worked parking system in place. So close to town and steamers etc. but you have to face the short sharp climb up back. ' ** Our family AA 4-star guesthouse in Bowness-on-Windermere is ideal for singles, couples, and families. FREE ROOM UPGRADES TO A ROOM OF THE NEXT PRICE RANGE UP IS ALWAYS OFFERED TO OUR GUESTS, SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY ON ARRIVAL. Please ask for details. • Built as a gentleman’s residence in 1868, our Bowness guesthouse is hidden at the end of a hilltop residential cul-de-sac, a mere 5-minute walk from town but happily distanced from noisy main road traffic, crowds and late night revellers. However, our back garden adjoins National Trust acres, and The Dales Way is a literal minute’s stroll from our door. In fact, Blenheim Lodge is the first guesthouse off The Dales Way in Bowness-on-Windermere, making our B&B a convenient stopping point for walkers. Amble country paths behind our house to viewpoints with exceptional 360-degree views. • ENJOY THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS: COMBINE YOUR STAY IN PRETTY B&B ROOMS WITH STUNNING LAKE AND FELL VIEWS WITH THE CONVENIENCE OF A 5-MINUTE WALK TO TOWN CENTRE AMENITIES, ATTRACTIONS, AND LAKE WINDERMERE. • Blenheim Lodge retains much of its quirky Victorian character and period charm.

PLEASE NOTE: Whilst we would love to cater to all people, our Lodge was built on a hill with a steep gradient, leaving no possible means of creating a ramp for wheelchairs. IMPORTANT: Due to Laterooms' commission fee to us of 17% on all booking transactions through their sites PLUS their introduction of 3% credit card fee to us for payment of this commission, we can no longer afford to absorb these card costs. Sadly, we will now have to introduce a card fee of 3% on all bookings taken through Laterooms. IMPORTANT: The guest house will not accept guests who want to accommodate more than the strict number of persons appearing in the booking confirmation.

97% would recommend it to a friend
Just returned from a one night stay to visit friends and wanted to book a hotel in the centre of Bowness.
Room 2 although small was cosy and the cleanliness was spot on plus it had great views both up and down the lake, also the owners were very polite and friendly. Would recommend for price, friendliness and cleanliness however it is up a steep hill so take this into account.
Relaxing by the Lake
The Lodge had the right amount of charm and warmth.
The owners were incredibly friendly, helpful and welcoming. The perfect place to relax come rain or shine. Great location for all the lakefront activities. Good selection of breakfast items too!
