We returned to Denehurst many years after first discovering what a comfortable and ideal base it is for exploring the Lakes. High standards have been maintained in this welcoming friendly establishment and a tasty breakfast is guaranteed to set you up for the day. We look forward to returning in the not too distant future and sampling the hospitality of genial hosts Ken and Cindy.

My Mum and I stayed at Denehurst for three nights last week. I bought the mini-break as a birthday present for her. From even before the point of booking, Ken and Cindy were fantastic, being very flexible with me and extremely accommodating.Once we arrived, we were delighted to find a beautifully clean and well maintained guest house. Our bedroom and bathroom were immaculate.The real value in staying at Denehurst, however, is in Ken and Cindy themselves. Their enthusiastic, in depth knowledge of the local area is quite enviable and their warm welcome makes you feel like you have instantly made new friends...oh, and Cindy’s breakfasts are to die for!I can not recommend Denehurst highly enough - thank you, Ken and Cindy, for a wonderfully memorable stay.

We had a fabulous 2 nights away at Denehurst. As the weather was warm we headed off early arriving at lunchtime. We weren't due to check in until 4 but Ken was very accommodating and we were able to settle in early and make the most of the afternoon. Denehurst is well located in the middle of Windermere and Bowness (approx 10/15 min walk in both directions). Both with lots of places to eat and drink and take in the views (we'd recommend the boat trips from Bowness). Denehurst had a lovely homely and relaxed atmosphere, the room was great, Ken and Cindy were fabulous hosts and breakfast was amazing. We advise you check it out yourself, we will definitely be going back!

The room (&whole house) were absolutely spotless and our breakfasts were beautiful - including fresh fruit and high quality bacon and sausages. Ken and Cindy also went over and above, e.g. by lending a hiking pole to my wife because she had a bad knee and with their helpful advice about local attractions. A fantastic weekend. Thank you

The morning breakfast was particulerly good with a wide choice. This is a guest house as you would wish to find it.

We couldn't have asked for better hosts in Cindy and Ken - they were thoroughly hospitable, and offered great advice about the local area (which was ideal for two Lake District novices!).The room was bright but cosy, and despite being opposite a school and just off the main road, it was quiet and felt as though we were in the middle of nowhere.The breakfast was also lovely;my only issue is that we only stayed for one night!

My husband and I recently booked very last minute,a Friday to Sunday much needed break away.We have stayed in the lakes many times over the years in guest houses and youth hostels, but havent stayed at this particular guest house before and I have to say it was a lovely stay!we arrived later than planned in the evening and this was not a problem for the owners Ken and Cindy.We had a lovely cheerful greeting at the door and were promptly shown around and to our room so we could get out again and have a bite to eat. Ken did offer to give us a lift into town but being such a short distance and stuck on the M6 for 2 1/2 hours we decided to walk and get some air.The next morning and the Sunday morning we had a very tasty breakfast which set us up nicely for our walk on both days.The guest house was a beautiful victorian building, kept really well and clean, Ken and Cindy couldnt do enough for you.Denehurst is situated in an ideal location, close to town BUT away from the main road so it was quiet.The room was a good size (room 6), clean, warm and very comfortable, it had all that you needed. We will definately be staying here again given the chance, thats providing we can get a room with all the excellent reviews! Overall, good value, tasty food, a fabulous break.Thank you to Ken and Cindy for making us feel so welcome in your home. :)

Reviewer:Mr. Bingming P | Thu 31st Jul 2014 | 4 years ago
We last visited the Lake District two years ago and we stayed with Ken and Cindy on that occasion.We were so well looked after that we did not think twice about booking with them on this visit with friends.The bedroom and ensuite were immaculate, the guest lounge was a comfortable place to relax and the plethora of local photographs and paintings give a lovely ambience to the dining room and hall and stairs.Ken and Cindy are enthusiastic about the area and keen to help in any way which included booking restaurants for us, recommending walks to include stops for coffee and cakes (Chesters), and / or excellent scenery (Coniston Water Pier area).They have maps and instructions for walks to suit any level.Denehurst is in an ideal location to visit both Bowness and Windermere on foot (being only 10 minutes in either direction)which is a welcome break on an evening to not have to get the car out again to go for a meal and glass (or two) of wine.There are extras such as free wifi (excellent reception), bottled water and sweets in the room and a welcome coffee and biscuits in the lounge on arrival.The breakfasts are superb.Cindy makes the best scrambled eggs and smoked salmon (in my humble opinion) and my hubby always enjoys the excellent full breakfasts.The choice is such that it covers everything anyone could want and if it doesn't they are more than willing to get it.You couldn't wish for more friendly, knowledgeable and helpful hosts who run a superb Guest House - the awards they receive bear testament to their success.We would have no hesitation in recommending that people book with them soon - you will not be disappointed.

Reviewer:Mr. John W | Sat 19th Jul 2014 | 4 years ago
Ken &Cindy are superb hosts and are eager to please.Cindy's breakfast is not to be missed, cooked to order fresh every morning, a lot of hard work goes on behind the scenes by them both, to ensure it appears outwardly effortless &where nothing is too much trouble, they also have boundless knowledge of where to see the best of the 'lakes' and can send you on a super tour that becomes a grand day out.... just have youngsters legs for all the walks, definitely recommended to all who book for the 1st time, you will not be disappointed!!!

Reviewer:Mr. Tony S | Mon 24th Mar 2014 | 4 years ago
Stayed at the Denehurst for a weekend break and thoroughly enjoyed it, apart from the flippin' rain! Still had a great time though. The Denehurst is a very friendly place to stay, Cindy and Ken are lovely people who can't do enough for you, they gave us ideas of places to visit and even leant us a map of the area, the B&B is spotlessly clean and the rooms are lovely, very comfortable with everything you need, right down to a cherry blossom shoe polish in the drawer! it does everything it says on the tine and great value for money, the breakfast was lovely too with plenty of choice and everything cooked fresh. Ideally situated for a very short walk into Bowness or Winder mere. Very highly recommended and would definitely stay here again in a heart beat. Thank you for a lovely stay with such a warm, genuine, friendly welcome.

What a great guest house this was, Beautiful house, great rooms and very welcoming hosts. Ken &Cindy add to a simply perfect stay... Your wish is their command, great breakfast menu that you choose from and add any special requests!! My husband did and it was there waiting for him in the morning. The guest house is in a great location between Bowness and Windermere, just a short stroll down to the lake. Highly recommended.
Reviewer:Mrs. Claire W | Mon 17th Feb 2014 | 5 years ago
Ken and Cindy own and run an immaculate B and B. Breakfast is delicious and they went above and beyond in ensuring that we made the most of our stay in the Lake District. Extremely well situated also. I could not recommend this B and B more.

We had a perfect stay at Denehurst.Nice BnB in a quiet neighbourhood, and, 5 min walk away from the lake and other active areas. The hosts (Ken and Cindy) were most helpful -- they helped us extensively in planning our days there and ensuring that we see the best sights of lake district.Cindy also took great trouble to prepare vegetarian breakfast for us, which was very much appreciated.

Ken and Cindy are spectacular hosts and have warmly welcomed us to Denehurst twice now. Location is ideal. Rooms are warm, comfortable, spotless and spacious. But most importantly breakfast is the best - freshly cooked full English, catering for dietary requirements/allergies and served with a friendly smile. Cannot fault Denehurst, Ken or Cindy!
Reviewer:Dr. Victoria K | Sun 13th Oct 2013 | 5 years ago
My mom and I had a nice stay at Denehurst. The guesthouse is located on a side street, therefore very quiet, and it's within walking distance to Windermere train station. Cindy and Ken were warm and attentive, the room was sparkly clean and the décor is nice. And their breakfast was delicious, although I only had a normal full English, the quality was very good.

All was perfect - the residence is very charming, homy and I greatly appreciated the fact that it is spotless - it was great having access to guest lounge and you can even turn on the fireplace. It is a very relaxing atmosphere. Our room was large in size in comparison to most paces we have stayed and luxurious white terry robes are available. Our hosts were so accommodating, absolutely lovely people and made you feel at home. The breakfast was brilliant - great selection of hot cooked items daily and so fresh. You too will be impressed.Trust me you will not be disappointed. I can only but highly recommend it!

My wife and I, both in our 60s, spent three wonderful nights at Denehurst, which made our trip to the Lake District all the more enjoyable.We got engaged in the Lakes about 20 years ago, so it holds a special place in our hearts.Ken and Cindy are ideally suited to owning a B&B, and made us feel like welcomed guests in their home.Upon our arrival, they ushered us into the Lounge and served us tea and cookies (biscuits).They are warm, friendly and so helpful in arranging restaurant reservations, and providing maps and instructions on how to reach the most remote points in the Lakes.Our room on the top floor was airy and bright, and my wife loved the Teddy Bear assigned to our room (each room has a different one).And thebreakfast ... wow!The next time we're in the Lakes, we'll be staying with Ken and Cindy.
Reviewer:Mr. Steve R | Mon 9th Sep 2013 | 5 years ago
We had a great time in your lovely guesthouse, thank you very much! 2days were definitely not enough to explore in the Lake District as you said. I will come back some time again! I loved everything about the room we stayed, also the breakfast. There was nothing to complain. Thank you for the lovely time :)
Reviewer:Ms. Atsumi M | Fri 30th Aug 2013 | 5 years ago
I booked Denehurst for our 10th wedding anniversary.We wanted a relaxing, no fuss or drama type weekend which is exactly what we got and more....Ken &Cindy are without doubt the most hospitable hosts in the country (i can say this because we have stayed in many guesthouses, hotels, b&b's throughout the country from York to Edinburgh)No problem to big or small that they cannot accommodate.The room we booked was beautifully decorated, fully equipped with tea, coffee, water, biscuits, toffee's :) etc.. The bathroom was also very nicely decorated.They offer the best breakfast in the land and as guesthouses go..the coffee was lovely.There is so much to do in and around the area, you are really spoilt for choice.We hopped on a boat at bowness to lakeside for the motor museum and aquarium, on the day we departed we opted to do the cake shop run which is a 3 mile trek, to be met with the most delicious of cakes and coffee, the walk back is far easier and breathtakingly beautiful.The 3 mile trek feels like 5 miles but anyone can do it...if you are not fit then it may take longer but still worth it.We will definitly be returning to Denehurst, it has everything you need &want including the perfect hosts.
Reviewer:Mr. Richard H | Tue 13th Aug 2013 | 5 years ago
Beautifully kept premises in an excellent location in Windermere.

Reviewer:Mr. Jerome L | Tue 25th Sep 2012 | 6 years ago
We stayed for 4 nights with Ken and Cindy as friends of ours had already made their booking at Denehurst for a 2 night stay and we were very pleased we did.The location midway between Windermere and Bowness is ideal, a 10 minute walk getting you to both. Restaurants in both are plentiful and Ken is very knowledgable about many of them. We asked him for his recommendations and we were not disappointed. He even rings up and makes the booking for you.The guest house is fine without being luxurious with everything you are likely to need available in your room - tea/coffee/biscuits/bottled water/robes etc. The cooked breakfast is excellent.The best thing about Denehurst, however, is Ken and Cindy. Nothing was too much trouble. We mentioned that we were doing a sponsored walk and would need to leave early one day prior to the advertised breakfast times. Ken and Cindy offered to start breakfast an hour earlier to accommodate the four of us and we still got the full English!I mentioned to Ken in passing that as we were the designated back markers on the walk we would be the last to finish and hoped that we wouldn't miss the last ferry back. Quick as a flash Ken said not to worry just give him a ring if we missed it and he would come out and collect us.. We didn't have to put him to the test but I would have no doubt that he would be as good as his word.Without hesitation if we ever contemplate returning to the area the Denehurst number will be top of the list.Ken, Cindy you will now be proud grand parents for the first time.Thank you for making our stay enjoyable and memorable.

We simply can't rave about the Denehurst enough. Ken and Cindy are some of the most lovely people we've come across while travelling. Their advice about hikes, waterfalls, restaurants, scenic roadtrips etc was perfect and given the short amount of time we had in the lakes district, helped us maximise our time. It felt like we were coming home at the end of each day - to a warm welcome, lovely room and great lounge to relax in. And in the morning a breakfast (with several great options!) to get us going all over again. Thanks so much - we hope to be back again, even if it is a long trip from Oz!

Ken actually drove me past a restaurant so that I would know the route when Eileen and I drove there later. His written tour guide of the Lake District, complete with Ordnance Survey map was great. Both he and Cindy were most helpful in providing information on the best places to visit, local restaurants and area history. Denehurst itself is very clean and well furnished, with a sitting room full of books concerning the area. The breakfasts were excellent, with a broad selection of choices. Overall it was one of the highlights of our visit to the UK.Jack Barber

A fantastic warm and friendly welcome from Ken &Cindy.By far the best Guest House we have stayed at in the Lakes. Comfortable clean room, and the comfy bed in room 3 was like sleeping on a giant marshmallow. Fantastic cumbrian Breakfast to set you up for the day ahead - Give Denehurst a try you wont be disapointed, i would highly recommend this wonderfull Guest House

We could not have asked for better.Hospitality was wonderful, the accommodation was of a very high standard, clean and tastefully decorated room.Breakfast was very efficient with plenty of options.Ideal location 10 - 15 mins walk to either Bowness or Windermere. Ken and Cindy were really nice and willing to do anything to help, even down to booking a restaurant for our evening meal.Thank you for making it a perfect place for a restful break. We would certainly stay again.

My fiance and I had a lovely stay at Denehurst Guesthouse. The breakfast was amazing and Ken and Cindy were super friendly. All facilities were very good too. If you are heading to Windermere in the future I recommend you book here.

I have stayed at Denehurst twice now and on both visits have been made to feel like an old friend. The guest house is immaculate yet homely with each room being individual and luxurious. Ken &Cindy are fabulous hosts and take time to ensure your stay is as good as it can be from the yummy breakfasts (of which you need to stay a week just to taste each one!!!) to recommending days out and places to visit, providing you with maps and walk sheets to help you see the best of the Lakes. As a single traveller there is no discrimination as with some other guest houses and I have already booked my return visit! Highly recommended in every way!

It is the best guest house / hotel when I travelled in UK. The house is really nice and hosts are very kind. We love it and must stay again if we go to lake district in the future.
