The White House in Bowness-on-Windermere

A Restaurant with Rooms

Join us at The White House, a superb location in the heart of Bowness-on-Windermere. The perfect base to discover the Lake District.

A visit to The White House provides the opportunity to encounter the Lake District's most popular destination whilst being wined and dined in a tranquil oasis, merely a minute’s walk from Lake Windermere. With cruises by Lake Windermere Cruises and the Beatrix Potter attraction minutes from us!

We are located in “Old Bowness” – a warren of quaint lanes, nooks and crannies dating from the Middle Ages – yet only a few yards from the bustling heart of the town with its huge variety of shops and attractions.  You can watch the world go by with a coffee or meal on our attractive terrace or eat inside in our extensive yet intimate dining room.

In addition, we offer twelve rooms with ensuite facilities at competitive rates – an ideal base from which to sample all the Lake District has to offer.

The White House has a new, enthusiastic and ambitious management team eager to provide a memorable and enjoyable experience.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Lake District!

Bowness-on-Windermere is home to Bownessie, a friendly, cheeky monster who lives in Lake Windermere whose favourite game is “Hide and Seek”! His smile is as large as his tummy and he loves nothing more than hanging out in the lake and going for walks and adventures where he meets new friends. Learn more about Bownessie here -
