The May Spring Bank Holiday long weekend is coming up, starting this Friday, 24th May 2013. Why not make a breakaway from your normal routine and join us at Blenheim Lodge in Bowness-on-Windermere in the Lake District National Park? Our peaceful guest house sits atop a hillock called Brantfell, and boasts some lovely views of Lake Windermere and the fells about us. Feel far away from the madding crowd whilst being in close walking proximity to the centre of Bowness, its amenities, and the Lake itself. We are sure that taking a rejuvenating short break will make a wonderful getaway over the long weekend.
Recently, a photographer came to our guest house to take some photographs on behalf of a company that we are advertising with. Here is one of the pictures she took to whet your appetite for a Lake District B&B break. I hope you will like it as much as we do!
The landscape above can be seen from The Coniston, a standard 4-poster room which has lovely Lake views. The Coniston is available over this upcoming May Bank Holiday long weekend. It has a characterful antique 4-poster with silk drapes and an arched canopy of pleated silk above. There is a small shower en-suite.
Here is a photo of what it looks like presently when taking in the ‘sights’ from The Dalesway, my favourite room at Blenheim Lodge.
And here is a photo of The Dalesway itself, so named because this room overlooks The Dales Way long distance footpath. This room can be used for double, twin or triple occupancy. I love the romantic antique Louis XV bed and furniture!
We also have Belle Isle, a single room with Lake views available for the May Bank Holiday long weekend. Belle Isle is furnished with French antique painted furniture and decorated with Laura Ashley colours and soft furnishings.
Lastly, here are a couple of new photographs taken of our guest lounge at Blenheim Lodge. Whenever guests arrive, we like to offer them a hot cuppa and biscuits in our lounge, which we hope is a nice way for them to relax after a (possibly) long journey to our home.

Well, if you have the time, please do come and share our home with us. We would love to welcome you to the delights of the Lake District National Park, where you can experience its marvellous landscapes first hand. Take some time out for yourself, and come stay with us at Blenheim Lodge. Make us your own little nest and retreat for the weekend.
