About the Glenburn Hotel

The Glenburn Hotel is an elegantly appointed Edwardian property set in the Heart of Windermere offering delightful accommodation on a Bed & Breakfast or Half Board basis. The current proprietors Peter & Jackie Baister have owned the Hotel since 2008 and have been in hospitality since 1986. Since taking over the Hotel we have carried out a full refurbishment and we continue to improve the facilities year after year.

The Glenburn has ample on site parking guests can just park the car and all amenities are within a short walking distance.
