The food was exceptional we had Dinner, bed and breakfast and even had lunch. It was so good. The whole place was immaculately clean. Beautiful location with stunning views. Easy access to the Lakes and very close to Lake Windermere. We would stay again.
The bed was hard and not for me but that is just a personal preference. Service both for the bar and food is slow but is all well worth it when it is served.

Beautiful views, stayed at the Hare and Hounds, lovely place , would go again but would take advantage of the weekly rate rather then higher weekend price. Great menu, good selection of food and beers, quality feel to accommodation, lovely surroundings.
The staff were friendly and helpful.
The staff were friendly and helpful. The bed was comfortable and there were little extras in the room such as shortbread biscuits and hot chocolate. The evening meal was delicious, the best steak and ale pie I've ever had! Breakfast had a lot of choice such as cereals, different spreads for toast, fresh raspberries, strawberries and blueberries, not to mention the full English breakfast!
The Hare and Hounds is situated in a very quiet and beautiful valley not far from Bowness on Windermere, peaceful with lovely views.

Whilst being near the Lake District it wasn't part of the over touristy areas like Bowness and Ambleside, and we weren't surrounded by shops all selling the same Beatrix Potter/Wainwright schtik. , slthough, if you needed a fix of B.P they weren't too far away.
It was a lovely pastoral unchallenging place, perfect for two old dodderers like me and the missus.
“This lovely old Inn at Bowland Bridge is a great place to escape the summer crowds in the Lake District. Our King Room was very spacious and the bath a luxury at the end of a long day of walking. Staff were very welcoming and helpful. Restaurant food so good we ate there for all three of the nights we stayed. Rooms comfortable and true to photos on website. It is an old building so some creaking and groaning (from the building not the inhabitants) but an extremely charming stay all round.”
