About this listing

The space

Given below is some SPECIFIC DESCRIPTION of The Fairfield, 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 Fairfield – Louis suite with king-size bed, and comfy sofa in huge bay windows to enjoy north Lake views

Offering spectacular views to the north of Lake Windermere as far as the eye can see and over to the mountains beyond is The Fairfield, Blenheim Lodge's largest bedroom. This lovely room has a Louis suite with intricately carved detail, and an excellent walk-in shower en-suite. The king-size 5' bed has a 9'' thick pocket sprung mattress from the luxury bed shop, And So To Bed, and is great for a fantastic night's sleep. A plush Liberty sofa sits in the commodious triple floor to ceiling bay windows, framed by deep burgundy velvet curtains and provides an irresistible place to relax and admire the scenery. (Imagine yourself lazing with a book on the sofa and contemplating the ever changing face of the Lake. Bliss!) Glance to the right, and you will also catch sight of the National Park fields and woodlands.

** PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE UNABLE TO ACCOMMODATE CHILDREN OF 8 YEARS OR UNDER IN THE FAIRFIELD 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 onBrantfell 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 2 bookable local fishing permits. 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. PLEASE ASK ALSO ABOUT ANY SPECIAL OFFERS WE MIGHT HAVE. **

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

Guest access

•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.

Check in time is 4PM - 9PM

•Smoking indoors in a Bed and Breakfast is illegal in the UK; therefore we do not allow anyone to smoke indoors, even if that person was to smoke at a window, with his/her head poking out of the window. However, we have a porch where people can smoke.

•No candles or tea lights and incense may be burned in our house or bedrooms.

•No hot takeaway food may be consumed in our guest house or bedrooms.

•Guests who stain, damage or break any items must either pay for the cleaning or repairs to make good, or pay for the replacements where the items cannot be repaired.

•Towels and bathmats must not be used to remove make-up or suntanning products, or used to clean tea, coffee or other drinks spillage that will stain them. Please tell us right away if you have sustained any damage or spillage, and we will try to sort it out. In particular, if you have stained towels, linen, furniture or carpets, please tell us immediately so that we can try our best to clean up the spillages and reduce the damage.

•Our guest house is not suitable for rowdy or drunken parties, as people come to stay with us because we offer peace and quiet, so please do not choose our guest house to stay in if you prefer party-type accommodation.

•Guests may not book a room and expect more than the number of people booked into that room to occupy it. For example, please do not book a double room for two adults, but arrive with a child, baby, or another adult to share it.

•We do not have cots or highchairs, so guests will require their own.

•Guests may not book a room and then swop the occupancy of that room with undeclared guests. For example, if someone books a room for two nights, we would expect that same person to stay for both nights. We would not expect that person to stay a night, and then leave the next day only to have a different person stay the next night.

•Please respect our home as you would your own. For example, if you have muddy boots when you come into the house, please either ask for a plastic bag from us to put your boots in or leave them in the vestibule instead of traipsing about the house in those muddy boots.

•We have a private car park that is only for the use of our guests only for the duration of their stay with us. If you are going to meet up with family or friends while you are in the Lake District, please do not expect that your family or friends will be able to park in our car park whilst visiting with you. The same goes for our guest lounge. The guest lounge is only for the use of guests staying with us. It is not for the use of guests of guests.

Superb location in a beautiful town. Breathtaking views from The Fairfield. Worth every penny. Good breakfast too.

Response from Janz:
Dear Dr Shal Thank you for your lovely review. We think our location is ace too: just minutes' walk from the centre of Bowness, yet literally on our door step are lovely walks to the fields, woodlands and viewpoints as well as a quiet place to rest and relax whilst being serenaded by sweet birdsong. The incredible views we enjoy of Lake Windermere and the surrounding mountains from our front and northwest-facing rooms are also so lovely to wake up to, as are the tranquil woodland views from The Dalesway room at the back of our house. To tell the truth, I personally enjoy the latter even more because we sometimes see wild deer in the part of the fell closest to us when it is not otherwise populated by sheep or cows, and it is lovely always to hear the owls hoot at night. Thanks for coming to stay, and we hope to welcome you again.

So cleannnnn the room is! The first time I saw the room I was like "Gosh! How lovely!" with a huge surprise look on my face:) Anyway, apart from its cleanness, the bed was also comfortable, lying on which you could really have a great overlook on the lake and the mountains faraway. Janz and her husband provide nice breakfast which is certainly the best among all my airbnb experiences. Janz also told us where to go in the lake district. So much to say....uh,so make it brief: it's worth the price, the hesitate to book it if you are traveling in lake district!

Janz was a brilliant host, and welcomed us on arrival into the living room and helped us with her wealth of knowledge of the local area. We figured out a plan of action of places to visit and see in the limited time we had available. Our room was perfect for 3 adults, the beds were very comfortable and we had a fabulous view across the lakes. The bathroom was impressive and provided for our needs perfectly. The B&B is situated in a quiet area, perfect for a relaxing break, and only a 5 minute walk into the town for restaurants and shops. The choices of breakfast each day were great, and the food was brilliant. We loved our stay in Windermere, and can highly recommend our accommodation to all who are looking for a relaxing and convenient place to stay.

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 where we live with our rescued Pyrenean Mountain Dog.

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.

One of us can speak a little Mandarin, a little Cantonese, a little Hokkien, a little Teochew and a little Toisan.
