Welcome to Glenville House(Adults Only)

We are planning to re-open on the 4th July

& taking booking now

Dear friends & guests

The current government advise is that some forms of accommodation can open from the 4th of July. On this advise we are working hard to prepare for this event, and we cannot wait to welcome you all back to Glenville House!

As you would expect with the current situation, some facilities may not be carried out in the usual way or available in their current state, such as check in, breakfasts and our homemade cake stand, but we will do our utmost to make your stay with us as safe, enjoyable and as comfortable as ever.

Should the regulations not allow for opening on the 4th of July we will contact anyone with a booking which is affected personally to discuss their options.

Please all stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you all soon

This charming, traditionally built Victorian Lakeland stone guest house was built in 1888 and is a former Gentleman’s Residence, retaining a lot of its original character. The atmosphere is relaxed and tranquil.

Glenville House sits in its own grounds backed by Mill Beck and Sheriffs Wood where, if you are lucky, you will see deer, squirrels and a wide range of birds…you may even spot a Buzzard!

Situated on the main road, midway between Bowness and Windermere, Glenville House is perfectly positioned for access to all amenities… the lake is an easy ten minutes walk away.

The guest house offers seven luxurious en-suite rooms with colour flat screen TV’s, i-pod docking stations and free WIFI.

This is Room 7 – a classic second floor room, situated at the rear of the house, with lovely woodland views. Visit our Bedrooms┬ápage for images of the other rooms available at Glenville House.

We have our own private car park so please feel free to leave your vehicle and have a lovely day trip by Bus, Tour Minibus, Boat, Steamer or even a taxi ride on the Taxi Trike from Bowness.

There is an endless list of places to visit, things to do and see, in and around the Lake District and its surrounding areas. If you need any local information whilst staying at Glenville House, we will be delighted to assist you.

If your idea of a holiday in the Lake District is one of a relaxing time, lots of fresh country air and an abundance of things to see and do, then Glenville House is an excellent place to stay.

For one of the most popular B&B’s in Bowness-on-Windermere, the heart of the English Lake District, look no further than Glenville House.

Pete and Jayne Hellmann welcome their bed and breakfast guests to Glenville House, a quality traditional guest house, and look forward to extending their warm hospitality to many new and old friends in the future.
