Windermere Hillthwaite Hotel, hotel in Bowness-on-Windermere

This family-run Lake District accommodations has an indoor swimming pool, picturesque gardens and free parking. Free WiFi is available in the downstairs public areas and the bedrooms.

Went to stay over for a night as I had gone to attend a conference. The location is beautiful, although it's not adjacent to the lakes (the prices would also be accordingly then) but the lake is visible from a distance outside the hotel. I would love to have gone for a walk had it not been for the conference. The room and washroom was very clean and tidy. They had provided desk fan, hair dryer, iron, iron board, complimentary tea/coffee/milk. The internet wifi was free for the residents. The bed and pillows were very comfy. I had booked my 8 am slot for breakfast where I was greeted by very hospitable staff who took my order and served a very delicious hot breakfast. I would love to stay over with my family one day (very soon). It also has free onsite parking.

    Stunning.

    Stunning. If you're in Bowness and look north towards the mountains north of Ambleside, it's one of the best views in the UK. There is also a viewpoint a little way north on the road from Bowness to Ambleside.

    Lake Windermere is very popular and can be busy around the Jetty areas where people take a trip on the water. Just out of town the Lake Jetty Museum show some beautiful boats that have seen time on the water. There is also a trip you can purchase there. For motor fanatics, the motor museum just out of town shows a very extensive selection of cars bikes and motor vehicles of all areas. They also show the world land and water speed records made by the Campbells. Definitely worth a visit if you are Into that kind of thing. A cafe is available. Parking is a available at both places.

    Although Windermere has the most transportation options,...

    Although Windermere has the most transportation options, restaurants, hotels and shops, it is extremely crowded with big city traffic. Neighboring lakes are just as it more charming and much quieter. This was my first time to the Lakes District, and I would skip Windermere in the future for other lakes.

    Windermere is the largest natural lake in England.

    Windermere is the largest natural lake in England. It is a ribbon lake formed in a glacial trough after the retreat of ice at the start of the current interglacial period. It has been one of the country's most popular places for holidays and summer homes since the arrival of the Kendal and Windermere Railway's branch line in 1847. Historically forming part of the border between Lancashire and Westmorland, it is now within the county of Cumbria and the Lake District National Park.

    It is beautiful, sunset over Windermere very relaxing. We did a yellow cruise to the south of the lake . around 40 min sail, so peaceful. Our 4 day trip wasn't long enough, but then it never is. Can't wait to go back

    The location is fantastic with great views to the Lakeland hills and lake Windermere. The hotel has been refurbished to a very high standard and the public areas are great with fantastic views. The accommodation, at least our room was small and the bed was also small but the fit out was good and the whole property is very clean.

    The location, high above Lake Windermere, is wonderful - away from the touristy center of Bowness. The gardens and towering rhododendrons are spectacular. Our room had a lovely lake view. The staff was exceptionally accommodating. Loved the tartan carpets, the view from the dining room, and the great selection of books and magazines in the reading room. Wonderful, sugary home baked shortbread cookies in our room every day.

    This is a nice, local owned guest house. Very quiet (top floor) with bathroom en suite. Right on the main road, so great access by car. Parking 200 feet away, GBP19 for 3 24 hour days, free after 6 PM. Walking distance to the boat rental/ride dock. Walking distance to at least 30 restaurants and pubs as well as a couple of convenience stores. Highly recommended though far from deluxe, very comfortable and supremely convenient location in Bowness near Lake Windermere.
