Braemount House in Windermere was built in 1879 and care has been taken
to retain much of its original charm and character, adding only to its comfort.

The Lake District National Park is famous for stunning scenery including tranquil lakes, peaceful forests, cascading waterfalls and of course, awe-inspiring fells, making it a perfect retreat for a brief weekend or a leisurely holiday. Golf, watersports, horse riding and lovely walks are within easy reach and all can be arranged from the comfort of Braemount Guest House. It is little wonder that Lakeland affords inspiration to writers and poets such as William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin, and it's all here waiting for you.

Braemont House

All rooms, including three family rooms, are individually designed and furnished to the highest standard incorporating en-suite facilities and include a remote controlled colour television, video casette recorder, hospitality tray, hairdryer, clock radio and visitors guide. For those special occasions why not reserve one of the beautiful four poster rooms?

Start the day with a traditional breakfast or our scrumptious scrambled egg and smoked salmon speciality, alternatively a continental breakfast may be taken in your bedroom and for those wanting something lighter or for vegetarians we have plenty of alternatives to offer.
