About the Lonsdale House Hotel

Brimming with historic charm and character, Lonsdale House Hotel in Bowness on Windermere was built in 1851 as a fine Gentleman's Residence and was converted to a hotel in 1932.  Recently fully refurbished retaining much of its original character and Victorian features, the accommodation won the coveted 'UK Accommodation of the Year' award and has attained the ETC standard of 4 star accommodation with a Visit Britain Silver Hosting Award.  We offer superb en-suite accommodation finished to a very high standard throughout.  Rooms are available with Lake Views, Deluxe Four Poster Beds and Large Deluxe Family Rooms.

Lonsdale House is set in the picturesque Victorian village of Bowness-on-Windermere which nestles on the shores of Lake Windermere. The village has an abundance of restaurants, bars, shops and attractions.  Hire boats of all sizes or take a cruise on the Lake from Bowness Pier and Bay.  Centrally situated in the heart of the Lake District, the hotel is an ideal base for those wishing to explore the National Park. 

Celebration Packages & Romantic Breaks

If you would like to get away for a celebration why not include a 'Celebration Package' with your stay.  The package includes champagne on ice, fresh flowers, rose petals sprinkled on the bed and chocolates.  We're perfect for that extra special romantic escape to the Lake District.
