Given below is some SPECIFIC DESCRIPTION of The Coniston, one of 11 bedrooms at Blenheim Lodge Bed and Breakfast, Bowness-on-Windermere, and also a GENERAL DESCRIPTION of our family home.


UNIQUE POINTS ABOUT OUR BED AND BREAKFAST:

Blenheim Lodge is unique for the following reasons:

* our secluded B&B is one of maybe 10 serviced accommodation places in Bowness AND Windermere with excellent views of Lake Windermere and the fells

* we are tucked away peacefully off the main roads, yet are no more than a short 5-minute walk to Bowness village centre and Lake Windermere

* our B&B nestles into a fell-side, Brantfell, with The Dales Way Walk, acres of fell land and viewpoints to explore at the back of our guest house

* all our rooms are individual in character and we try to decorate and furnish them in keeping with the age of our 1868 Victorian home, including the use of antiques.

More information about our guest house is given below. One of us also speaks a little Mandarin, Cantonese, and Hokkien, and understands a little Toisan and Teowchew.

If you wish to arrive earlier or later than our usual 4 pm check in time, please do ask.


SPECIFIC ROOM DESCRIPTION:

The Coniston – Antique 4-poster in a cosy room with lovely Lake views

For a 4-poster room with that cosy feel, do choose The Coniston. This bedroom is decorated with lovely warm Laura Ashley colours and furnishings, an appropriate setting for the antique William IV 4-poster bed hung with handmade raw silk drapes and pleated arched roof detail. A bespoke mattress commissioned to fit the unusual curves of the bed was handmade by Harrison Spinks, an upmarket British mattress maker. In the morning, wake up to enjoy the stunning views of Lake Windermere and the Claife Heights mountains as you gaze out of the window from your warm and comfy bed. There is a small shower en-suite. (Please note that there is 1-1.5 feet between the foot end of the bed and the far wall.)

** PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE UNABLE TO ACCOMMODATE CHILDREN OF 15 YEARS OR UNDER IN THE CONISTON ROOM. **

** PLEASE ALSO NOTE THAT WE USUALLY REQUIRE A MINIMUM STAY OF 2 NIGHTS OR MORE DURING WEEKENDS AND SUMMER SCHOOL HOLIDAYS. PLEASE ASK. **


GENERAL BED AND BREAKFAST DESCRIPTION

Peaceful, homely, non-smoking Blenheim Lodge is situated in the heart of the Lake District National Park and boasts stunning Lake and fell views. Our friendly guesthouse in Bowness-on-Windermere is ideal for singles on retreats, couples on romantic breaks, and families on holidays. The Lake District is a well-known for its beauty and provides a wonderful part of the world for getting away from it all. Some of the most popular activities here include fell walking, cycling, mountain biking, fishing, golfing, sightseeing and other activities.

•Quietly situated on one of the Lake District’s fells, Brantfell, Blenheim Lodge nestles against acres of lovely National Trust fields and woodlands, making our secluded B&B a relaxing and tranquil retreat.

•Our back garden adjoins National Trust acres, and The Dales Way is a literal minute’s stroll from our door. Amble country paths on Brantfell behind our house to viewpoints with exceptional 360-degree views.

•Built as a gentleman’s residence in 1868, our Bowness Bed and Breakfast is hidden at the end of a cul-de-sac, and distanced from noisy main road traffic, crowds and late night revellers. One guest said, ‘Only five minutes walk to town; but up here, it’s a million miles away!’

•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 Bowness town centre amenities, attractions, and Lake Windermere.

•Our fully refurbished guesthouse retains much of its quirky Victorian character and period charm. Rooms are decorated with Laura Ashley colours and soft furnishing and most are furnished with antique pieces in keeping with their historic past. Comfortable handmade mattresses and fluffy Norwegian duvets promote a restful night’s sleep.

•For breakfast, we serve local Lakeland produce: hearty butcher-made sausage and bacon cooked to order. A local dairy delivers fresh eggs and milk daily. Vegetarian options are available, including oven-fresh croissants and delectable muffins.

•Blenheim Lodge is environmentally friendly. We buy local and use local trades where possible. We also recycle and use ecologically sound products and environmentally friendly and efficient central heating and electrical systems where possible.

•We offer FREE: onsite car park, WIFI, and are happy to offer assistance with bookings for tours and other activities. There is a nice guest lounge with Lake views.

•We are always happy to help our guests get the most out of their stay. If you would like help with arranging guided walking trips, please do ask. We also work with local fishermen and can arrange tuition and guides for anglers coming to stay with us.

•Blenheim Lodge is ideally situated for exploring the Lake District. Windermere Railway is 5 minutes south. Local main roads, buses and ferries provide easy links to other parts of the Lake District. We can arrange minibus and private tours that will pick up and drop off guests at Blenheim Lodge.

So, come stay with us. Listen to the sound of silence and fall under its spell. Slumber soundly on handmade mattresses, whilst tucked under fluffy Norwegian duvets. Then, awaken in the morning to the beauty of birdsong and the glory of our Lakeland views.

** THERE WILL BE SOME TIMES IN THE YEAR THAT WE WOULD REQUIRE A MINIMUM STAY OF 2-4 NIGHTS. **

** EACH CHILD IS COUNTED AS ONE PERSON. PLEASE LET US KNOW THE AGES OF ANY CHILDREN YOU MAY WISH US TO ACCOMMODATE. **

Bowness-on-Windermere, Vương quốc Anh

•Situated in the heart of the Lake District National Park, Blenheim Lodge is located at the end of a cul de sac on a quiet small steepish hillside lane and nestles into a fell. As our short road ends is also a no-through road, we do not get vehicles coming up towards our neck of the woods unless they have a reason to be here.

•The front and side of our semi-detached guest house overloook Old Bowness to Lake Windermere and the mountains beyond - hence the marvellous views that we and our guests can enjoy from our guest and public rooms.

•The back of Blenheim Lodge B&B boarders the tranquil woodlands and fields of National Trust acres. My favourite room, The Dalesway, has a romantic charm and overlooks those same fields and countryside, and makes me feel like I have escaped to some special fairy place far away!

•As there is no road at the back of our guest house, Blenheim Lodge does not have any neighbours to the back of the house. In fact, an ancient mossy stone wall covered with hedge growth and a low wire fence form the boundary between our house and National Trust acres.

•Access from our B&B to National Park walks and viewpoints, picturesque dells and peaks, is through a little wooden farm gate at the end of the small road that leads up to it from our guest house. One of these walks is romantically named the Poet's Walk. The highest viewpoint is Brantfell, which is also the name of the fell or hill that our home is located upon.

•The Dales Way Walk is a long distance footpath, which route traverses part of Brant Fell. Blenheim Lodge is the first guest house off The Dales Way Walk in Bowness-on-Windermere, thereby making our B&B a convenient stop for tired walkers looking for friendly and comfortable accommodation after days of walking from Ilkley, The Dales Way Walk's starting point in Yorkshire.

•Indeed, one of our guest rooms, The Dalesway, is named after The Dales Way Walk because, whilst the countryside is not in full flower, one can see the Footpath from this bedroom.

•I wish I could sketch here the loveliness of our B&B's location. Being up on a hill, guests may enjoy the peace and quiet of a relaxing getaway.

•The countryside surrounding our Bed and Breakfast brings with it unpolluted Lakeland air, which one of our long time guests has remarked upon as being one of the reasons why she keeps returning to our guest house: her doctor had told her that the clearness of the air helps to alleviate the symptoms of her chronic asthma. Of course, our guest hastened to add, she has also continued to come here after 12 years because she enjoys our hospitality. Now, it is like welcoming an old friend to our home: as she has often said, it is her home from home.

•Thus, for guests who enjoy walks and peaceful retreats, with the added bonus of stunning Lake and mountain views from their rooms, Blenheim Lodge is an ideal place to stay.

•However, Blenheim Lodge also occupies a very convenient location with respect to accessing local amenities and attractions. It is a 2-minute walk downhill to the centre of Bowness town where guests will find numerous cafes, restaurants, pubs, shops, a couple of newsagents, beauty salons, a bank, a Post Office, an antiques shop, a bakery, a delicatessen, etc.

•Lake Windermere and the leisure facilities and attractions that it offers is about 5-7 minutes walk from our guest house. There, guests can ride the ferries, enjoy rowing or puttering on the Lake in a little row boat, canoe, kayak or motor boat, and we can even arrange dinner or lunch cruises aboard a yacht - great for a little treat!

•Also by the Lake is a recreation area with crazy golf, an 18-hole golf course (please don't get your hopes up that this is a big course - there is a proper golf club and course a mile from our B&B that welcomes visitors), tennis, and badminton. Guests can rent leisure equipment at the recreation area and golf club as required.

•In the summer, Bowness welcomes a fair or two and sometimes even the Red Arrows. There are often other events held at The Glebe, Bowness Bay, which is right by the Lake and only 7 minutes walk from the front door of our guest house.

•Going down into Bowness town might take all of 2 minutes, but walking back up from the centre of town will take 5 minutes since it is all uphill. Having said that, there are two ways to make tracks to our guest house from the centre of Bowness: one is a steep route and the other is a slightly more windy but much gentler route which cuts out 2/3rds of the hill! Either way, it will take 5 minutes to walk uphill from the town centre and back to us.

We are a couple with grown up children. My husband is Scottish and I am Singaporean. We enjoy the countryside, and love the peace and quiet here at Blenheim Lodge B&B where we live with our rescued dogs. We rescued Great Pyrenees for many years, but now have an adopted Great Dane and an adopted German Shepherd living with us. You can see some photos of our current home, Blenheim Lodge, which we enjoy sharing with our B&B guests, on our Profile page. These are photos of our main public rooms, our outside areas, and some of the amazing views that can be seen from them. More photos of the bedrooms themselves can be seen on our Space or Bedrooms listings. We enjoy sharing our home, which offers en-suite accommodation in single, double, twin and triple rooms, with our guests. We particularly welcome quiet and friendly guests who enjoy a tranquil location, neat rooms with character, and are respectful of our house rules. One of us can speak a little Mandarin, a little Cantonese, a little Hokkien, a little Teochew and a little Toisan.

•Blenheim Lodge is our home and we have a separate apartment within this former gentleman's Victorian residence. We always like to welcome our guests into our B&B with hot drinks and biscuits, engaging with them to see how we can help to make their stay special, and showing them their room on their arrival.

•We enjoy meeting and getting to know our guests if they have the time and inclination to spend time with us. Some of our guests have been coming to stay with us for as long as we have been here, which is really lovely.

•So, yes, we enjoy interacting with our guests, and are always available to help them make the most of their breaks at Blenheim Lodge; but are sensitive enough to respect their preference for no or little interaction if that is their preference.
