This AA 4-star B&B offers a relaxing peaceful stay away from noisy main road traffic and crowds but is ideally situated, having the benefit of a 5-minute walk to local shops, restaurants, pubs, and tourist attractions including the World of Beatrix Potter Attraction and the Old Laundry Theatre. For rail and coach travellers, Windermere Station is a convenient 5-minute ride from Blenheim Lodge Bed and Breakfast.

The B&B takes advantage of quality local produce, including butcher-made sausages and hand-cured and cut bacon. Milk and eggs are delivered fresh from the dairy each morning.
Blenheim Lodge was built as a gentleman's holiday residence in 1868. Set quietly into Brantfell, a Lakeland fell in the heart of the English Lake District National Park, this peaceful home now serves as a tranquil retreat for bed and breakfast guests. The situation of this historic Windermere Lodge is ideal: most of its rooms are Lake-facing in order to take in the specatacular Lake Windermere and fell views in Bowness-on-Windermere. Where the house faces away from the Lake, pretty and serene countryside views of the woodlands and fields behind the house provide a lovely backdrop.

Such a warm welcome from Janz! with friendly, attentive and helpful contact with her and her husband throughout our stay. The view from room 3 was literally breathtaking, the four poster bed and soft furnishings were quite luxurious. Plenty of choice for an excellent breakfast. We did not need to use the car at all and found so many things to do locally, including using the complimentary pass for spa facilities at a local Country Club. Already planning another visit...
