Lovely guest house in a perfect location. Spotlessly clean with good food. Paul and Lesley are the perfect hosts and made us feel very welcome. Added bonus is that you have your own parking space. Would definately recommend. We stayed in room 5 which is the smallest room but it had everything we needed and was perfect for us.

Exceptional Stay (copied From Tripadvisor)
My wife and I booked 2 nights at Hazeldene and now wish we'd booked longer.

Paul is an exceptional host, very personable and chatty, but not intrusive.

The location is at the top of main thoroughfare and minutes from the Piers. Parking is excellent with a parking space behind hotel.

The room, number 4, was spacious and comfortable. With a view over the Lake and you have an excellent view of the sun setting over the lake itself. Being high up the room can get quite warm, but Paul has thought of everything and a fan is provided, which was a Godsend to be honest.

Breakfast is lovely, which is ordered the night before. Paul even makes his own Jam's and Marmalade, a couple of which we tried and were not dissaponted

The room is located up a couple of flights of stairs, so if you have mobility issues you may want to think about it or check with Paul to see if you'd be suitable.

If, or when, we return to the Windermere area then Hazeldene will be at the top of our places to stay

5* Review (copied From Tripadvisor)
Stayed here weekend just gone and honestly couldn't fault it one bit. Arrived early to make the most of the day and Paul allowed us to park up and check in early. The Guest House is really lovely, very clean and comfortable. We stayed in Room 2, the biggest in the property and it over looked the Lake which was a bonus. Breakfast was superb and set us up for the day. I recommend trying the homemade Jams and Marmalades. I think when we stay in Bowness again we will be staying here! Thank You for a pleasant experience.

Weekend In Bowness On Windermere (copied From Tripadvisor
Could not fault our 2 night stay at Paul & Lesley’s guesthouse. From the moment we got their we felt at home and were made very welcome, Paul is extremely friendly and makes you feel very comfortable. We stayed in Room 1, which was spacious and had a lovely few of the lake. Bed extremely comfortable with fluffy pillows and thick duvet, slept very well! Breakfast was faultless with many options selected the night before making the morning relaxed and organised. Homemade jams were delicious! Location is perfect, just a short walk to Windermere town centre for shops and a shorter walk in the opposite direction takes you through various pubs, restaurants and bars ending up down at the lake! Parking is safe and off the street, Paul even allowed us to leave our car on the day of check out so we could have one last look around Windermere and even managed a boat trip to Ambleside! Overall, I would 100% recommend Hazeldene Guest House. You will not be disappointed!

We look forward to seeing you both again next April for another instalment of the Bowness Blues Festival. Take care and stay safe.

Lovely As Usual
Fourth visit to Hazeldene and already booked next stay. Paul and Lesley make sure we have a comfortable stay. Always feel welcome. Spotlessly clean rooms, great breakfast and home made jams and marmalades, what more can you want? Rooms at the rear of the house have lake views. 5 mins walk down the hill to the town centre with all its facilities and a little further to the lake. Free car parking. Steps to reach front door and stairs to rooms so need to be reasonably mobile.

Lovely B&b In A Great Location.
Just returned from a 3 night stay at the Hazeldene.

Paul and Lesley are fantastic hosts, very friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

Everything is clean and tidy.

We had room 4 which is a good size and has a great view over the lake.

The breakfast is fabulous amd really sets you up for the day.

Having allocated parking given the location is an absolute godsend.

Thanks for a great weekend.

Perfect!!
Paul is the perfect host and from the second you arrive makes you feel like you’ve been friends for years. Sadly we didn’t really see Lesley much apart from the morning but can confirm that she makes a mean breakfast! Just what you need to set you up for a day walking (from pub to pub :-)). Great location and is central to everything. We will definitely be returning and will recommend to family and friends.



The room we stayed in was on the main road but that was the only room left when we booked. I’m a very light sleeper so it was only an issue for me. My husband wasn’t phased at all. This isn’t a complaint just a personal issue. I’ll try and book a different room next time but would still be happy with this one if that’s all that is available.

I would recommend Hazeldene to anyone. Paul is very welcoming and friendly and gave lots of little tips about the area. The view from Room 4 was excellent. The breakfast was very good. It was a lovely walk from the front door down to the lake and easy access by car to lots of other places of interest!

Room With A View
Just had a fantastic 2 night stay, in this spotless and well run B&B.



Situated just a short stroll from the centre of Bowness on Windermere, with an abundance of local shops, pubs, eateries, boats to hire and cruises around the lake. This idyllic location was perfect for our first time visit to the lakes and has left us with the desire to return again soon.



Paul and Lesley have got this B&B spot on in every aspect. From the warm welcome and informative local knowledge right through to the little touches which made this B&B a home from home. We stayed in the larger room 2 with a beautiful view over the lake, where there is space to sit and reflect on the days activities.



You will not be disappointed in booking this B&B and I am even confident in recommending the Hazeldene to the mother in law !!



Thank you Paul and Lesley for a wonderful stay and no doubt see you again soon.

Stayed at Hazeldene for 2 nights and this guest house is fantastic. Stayed in room 2 with amazing views of the lake and mountains. The room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was amazing with plenty to eat and more was always on offer if you wanted it. Homemade jam and marmalade well worth a mention as delicious. Paul and Lesley are exceptional hosts and we'll definitely go back to stay there as central location for Windermere and Bowness.

Stott Park Bobbin Mill - Newby Bridge - Museum

Stott Park Bobbin Mill - Newby Bridge - Museum

Distance 6.04 miles (9.67 km)
A working mill built in 1835, Stott Park created the wooden bobbins vital to the spinning and weaving industries of Lancashire. Typical of mills across Cumbria, today you can see industry from a bygone age and watch as bobbins are made using the mill's original machinery. Although Stott Park worked continuously until 1971, it remains almost identical to its Victorian appearance of 100 years ago. With its Victorian machinery originally powered by a waterwheel and steam engine, Stott Park used birch, ash and sycamore to make wooden tool handles as well as bobbins. The mass of belts which fill the building still drive the cutting, boring and finishing machines than turn long thin poles into bobbins. You can watch a bobbin being made, and take it home as a souvenir.
