One bit of feedback was the single room got quite hot despite having the window open and the fan on, obviously we don\'t get weather like this often but the fan on the highest setting still felt a little slow compared to in the other double room we\'d booked.

We stayed for 3 nights. Our room was lovely, and overlooked the garden. My elderly mother has mobility issues and needed a groundfloor accessibke room and was delighted wiith the wet room. The house itself is spotless, breakfast is cooked to order and you \"get it your way\".

B And B At Its Best
We had a two night mid week stay at the Willowsmere - probably the best moderately priced B & B we have stayed in. Arrived an hour early - no problem. First time ever greeted with a pot of fresh tea. Room had everything you could ask for. Nice touch having an honesty bar. We could take advantage of the beautiful garden and sit out and have a drink in the warm late afternoon sunshine. Breakfast was excellent with fast and cheery service. On top of all that given advice on local walks and restaurants. If you like fish you will like Hooked in Windermere. Last but not least excellent wifi.

Romatic Weekend
My husband & I recently stayed at The Willowsmere, we were warmly greeted by Jason who immediately offered us tea or coffee which was really lovely after our journey & greatly appreciated. Jason gave us lots of advise on where to go & where to eat, which was great as we\'d never been to the lakes.
He recommended The Lamp Lighter which we ate at on the Saturday night, we was not disappointed it was a fantastic meal with exceptional service. He also recommended Café Italia, which we loved again fantastic as well as wonderful service. For our arrival I had ordered Moet Champagne as a surprise for my husband, which he was chuffed about. It was waiting on our bed on ice on a tray with 2 flute glasses, it was lovely champagne & went down a treat. Our room was lovely, my husband required a gluten free breakfast which was no problem at all. I was impressed by they\'re knowledge, they even were aware of cross tamer nation. We would certainly return to The Willowsmere as well as recommend it to friends & family. A big thank you to all the staff we had an amazing weekend.

Great small hotel, lovely to have our own access into a large disabled access room.......never easy to gauge the level of disability my only suggestion would be to have more grab rails around the shower area which was more than adequate and large.

Stop Searching--you Found It!
I have used Booking.com many times, but by far this was the most outstanding experience that I\'ve had. This B&B is nothing short of perfect- the rooms and baths are beautiful and timeless, something that\'s harder to find nowadays. All guests receive access to a lovely garden/terrace area for cocktails, etc. from the honesty bar in the parlor. Breakfast is outstanding, with options to delight every guest and accommodate all food allergies (even the most severe, like me: Full English with all the trimmings, eggs benedict, beautiful Scottish salmon, etc. Wifi also works very well. 10 minute walk from the town of Windermere, and a 30 minute journey on foot through Windermere\'s stunning lakeside views and forests to get to Bowness (from which point you can easily take the ferry to visit Hill Top Farm, Hawkshead, and more. The management team could not be more charming. Jason was an absolute delight and will give the best tips on the best places to go around town- this is the man to see. Whether it\'s your first time in the Lake District or your tenth, this place is a must.

Another fabulous stay. On arrival we were given a free upgrade from a double room to a king-size room. The bathroom was luxurious with a roll top bath. This was very much appreciated after a wet and windy walk on the fells.

Excellent Stay At The Willowsmere
We stayed at the Willowsmere bank holiday weekend for 1 night, from time of booking, right through to arrival, Anthony Pete was more than helpful, going above and beyond to ensure our visit was an enjoyable one. On arrival he provided us with advice about best places to visit locally, as well as a map of the area.

The b&b itself is within beautiful grounds, with lovely gardens both out front and back. Very relaxing with feature pond and waterfall. The entrance to the Willowsmere was lovey and clean, and very welcoming. An honesty bar was stocked full of drinks to suit all tastes.

Our room was beautiful and cleanly presented with excellent tea and coffee facilities, including juice, biscuits and mint cake! Our bathroom was nothing short of stunning with a huge shower head and roll top free standing bath.

Breakfast was an excellent choice of both cooked and continental, and serving staff were excellent and attending to everyone\'s needs. The traditional breakfast was delicious!!

The b&b is located just a short 10mins walk into the centre of Windermere, and 30mins from Bowness. Excellent location to explore the Lakes.

We had a great stay at The Willowsmere, and only wished we could have stayed longer. Highly recommended to all looking for a relaxing break away. We look forward to staying again.

A Perfect Break
We came across this wee gem whilst looking for somewhere to take a quiet break following a recent bereavement. It does exactly what it says on the tin! We loved everything about this place from the moment we arrived at the newly laid car park (which offers ample parking spaces for all guests) till the moment we were waved off the premises five days later.

We were met and made welcome on arrival by Anthony who offered us a much-needed cup of tea and who took time to point out places of local interest as well as make recommendations on a number of restaurants throughout the area. (If you’re after a particular type of food, he knows where to go!). We took up four of his suggestions and were not disappointed. He and his colleague Jason were also very knowledgeable about places to walk or climb and were more than happy to offer advice if asked.

The building itself is beautifully kept and maintained with mature gardens to the front and rear. The rooms and public areas were spotless and the staff couldn’t be more helpful or friendly; nothing was a problem. The wee special touches in the bedroom – especially the fresh bottle of water provided every day – all added to the enjoyment of our stay as did the “honesty” bar! We had booked a four-poster room which was at the back of the building with views of the garden. We loved the room, the view and the peace and quiet. The gorgeous bathroom was newly decorated and was large, light and airy. The two guest lounges were comfortable and welcoming and the breakfasts were excellent with the food – mostly sourced from local producers – being hot and freshly cooked.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wholeheartedly recommend the Willowsmere. It will certainly put it at the top of our list should we visit the Lake District again. Well done and thank you Anthony, Jason and your team for a wonderful stay.

Excellent Stay
This is a fantastic B&B, a very friendly, helpful and, most importantly, relaxed atmosphere.

The rooms are very nice, being newly refurbished to a high standard.

We stayed here as a base for a weekend of walking and eating and cannot fault the place. It is one of the few B&B\'s I have stayed in where I felt comfortable sitting back in the lounge rooms and not feeling compelled to stay in your room, perfect after a good day in the hills.

Already looking at booking again in May

Fantastic Place
We were running late and arrived at the guest house about 8.10pm but we were welcomed after we apologised for the delay. We were advised of local amenities and given recommendations and then given the key to the room. The room was spacious and had everything that we needed. Breakfast was also delicious and staff were attentive. Only thing that we needed sorting out was we didn\'t know how to turn the television completely off as there was a blue flashing light after using the remote. We later learnt there was another remote to switch off the plug. This did not spoil our trip and we would happily return. Thanks for a great stay!

A Couple Of Days \'chilling\'\'
I decided to visit the area for a few days and after viewing a few different hotels online I chose the Willowsmere, and I wasn\'t disappointed. I arrived early and they were more than happy to allow me to leave my car whilst I went for a wander and then I checked in later which was a breeze with Anthony chatting with me about the local area, and giving a few tips on where to eat.
The room was very clean and exactly as described. The breakfast was \'spot on\', setting you up for the day with plenty in offer, with nothing too much for the staff.
All in all a lovely couple of days and I will definately be staying again if/when I visit again.

If you're looking for a clean, modern, well equipped place to stay in Windermere you must try the Willowsmere. I wish I could have stayed longer. Really friendly and welcoming. The breakfast certainly meant I didn't go hungry in the morning.

The Willowsmere
Had a wonderful time at the Willowsmere. From the very start nothing has been too much trouble for the very friendly staff. The accommodation was fantastic. spotlessly clean. our room had a newly refurbished bathroom which has been done to a very high specification. The breakfasts were very satisfying - definitely set us up for the days walking ahead. The grounds/garden was peaceful and tranquil and lovely to sit in and relax. Would definitely recommend to others. Would definitely return. Yvonne and Wayne Wilsden

The Willowsmere --going The Extra Mile
Usually stay in hotels not guest houses and we were unsure what to expect. Needn't have worried. Warm welcome with local map given and recommendations of where to eat etc. Breakfast couldn't be faulted, top quality ingredients and speedy service. Room spotless - love the shower. Thanks for the tip for journey home avoiding motorway. Beautiful, picturesque route. Service definitely went the extra mile.

Friendly, Clean, Good Value & Fab Breakfast!
We were given a magnificent friendly welcome... Offered coffee/tea & shown around - loved the honesty bar idea!! We stayed one night in a four poster room, although the room was smaller than expected the high ceilings, cleanliness of the room & immaculate bathroom more than made up for it. The added extra making us smile were the special touches; decanter with sherry, orange squash in glass bottle, bottled water, provision of decaff coffee, biccys & Kendal mint cake, lovely filled toiletries for the bathroom with cotton wool & buds, dressing gowns also provided with pristine white flannels & towels... !! I always check the inside of the kettle when staying at a hotel & it was lovely to see the inside of a kettle so clean & not thick with limescale!! The only recommendations I would make are; provide more milk in the room & a shelf/storage space in the bathroom for guests to put their toiletries. Although the hotel is near the main road we were surprised how quiet it was inside the room.

We were pleased the fact that the hotel was 4 miles from Ambleside (where we usually stay) as we are avid walkers it meant we could walk to Ambleside & back taking in the beauty of the area.

The deep Roll top bath & instant hot water with mixer tap in bathroom very tasteful decor was the icing on the cake after our walk... Wall mounted TV & free internet connection & even a hair dryer provided!!

The breakfast has to be the best breakfast we have had in all our stays!!

We will be coming back!!

It's a brisk walk from the town centre. We were warmly welcomed with tea & coffee on arrival, and a chat about local attractions & amenities. The four-poster room was easily accessible & fully equipped. The 'old fashioned' bathroom was in fact modern & efficient - fluffy towels, good heated rail, plenty of hot water, nice amenities. The room & bed were very comfortable and breakfast was well-cooked, hot and plentiful. The common rooms and garden areas were also attractive and comfortable. Very good value for the price.

We Were Duly Impressed
As it was our first visit to the Lake District, we had no idea about accommodations. We usually rely on the reviews on Tripadvisor as my wife is a regular reviewer herself. And the service, cleanliness and comfort we found at Willowsmere were exactly as its reviews. We are an elderly couple and over the years, have stayed in various hotels and guest houses. We give Willowsmere top marks for cleanliness and friendliness. A special mention goes to Jason who was there on hand to greet us with a hot cup of tea and shared with us local knowledge and dining outlets. The ladies who served breakfast also deserve special mention. It was service with a smile, and requests for an extra egg, extra bacon were not a problem. These are the extra little things that set a guest house apart from the ordinary. Our discovery of Willowsmere was due to the efforts of Tripadvisor reviewers. Tripadvisor reviews are a great help to other travelers.

Excellent!
My wife and I have stayed at many Guest Houses/B/Bs and this is the best breakfast we have ever had--beautifully cooked, presented and with a varied menu.The host is extremely welcoming and helpful in giving advice about places to eat in the evening.This is very strictly a non-smoking venue which we liked as the room was fresh with a brand new en-suite.There is a charming garden to the rear which has won awards--the weather was not conducive to our sitting out in it but in warmer weather it would have been ideal as there are tables for coffee etc.

We would recommend this without hesitation as an excellent place to explore the area--it is only a mile to Windermere, a couple of miles from Bowness, 8 miles from Ambleside and Grassmere (Wordsworths home/burial site)is a few miles further on.

There is a very good Italian restaurant in Winderemere and various ones in Bowness where the ferries leave to cruise the lake.Ambleside is worth a visit too but we found it very difficult to find a restaurant to suit us--too many dominated by televisions/football etc!

Be warned that parking is very difficult in all Lake District towns, with double yellow lines everywhere, even on minor side streets, and all car parks operated by various national companies incurring what we thought were excessive charges(£3.00/two hours/£4.00/3 hours).It is virtually impossible to park anywhere on the streets and all tourist attractions--Hawkshead for example- seem intent on extracting as much money as possible from motorists.

It's a shame the weather didn't help but you are right that when the sun shines the garden is a joy with sun from mid morning through to sunset. You are right about parking in the area, but as we have ample parking and are only 1/2 mile or a 10 min walk into Windermere many guests choose to leave their cars in our car park and explore on foot. Ambleside, by the way, in only 4 miles away and is also connected by several bus routes so the car isn't always essential. Indeed a good many of our guests arrive by train as the station is only a 10 min walk away. One tip on car parks, consider a National Trust membership. They have several car parks throughout the lakes and membership entitles you to stay for free, as well as gain entry to a vast range of interesting attractions. Thanks again for the review, and hope to see you back here at some point. All the best, Anthony

Lovely B&b
We enjoyed our stay at The Willowmere for 3 nights. Luckily we got the room with the newly refurbished bathroom, which was beautiful and was the highlight! Anthony and the staff are very hospitable and recommended places for us to visit.
There are quite a few breakfast options - all delicious!
Definitely recommend staying at The Willowsmere.

Hi Lovie (great name!), many thanks for taking the time to post a review - always appreciated! I'm really pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and I'm delighted to hear your new bathroom was the highlight - we've actually replaced 10 bathrooms in the last year so all our double, king / twin and four poster rooms have lovely new bathrooms, the largest and glitziest of which are in the four poster rooms, which are very large all have roll top baths and high level loos with throne seats! Really pleased you enjoyed the breakfasts! Thanks again for posting a review, and hope to see you back here when you are next in the area. All the best, Anthony

Excellent Stay, Will Book Again On Our Next Visit To Windermere!!
Anthony (owner) was really helpful when we arrived, he showed us the best places to visit and avoid. Our room (11) was very clean and comfortable, we wanted to take the mattress home with us, it was so comfortable. Breakfast was amazing, didn't have to wait long on any of the three mornings, the waitress (didn't get her name) was really polite and always checked if we needed anything such as top up of tea/coffee and toast. Unfortunately we didn't get to sit the garden as it didn't stop raining but it was very nice and well looked after as are the neighbours'. The lounge areas were nice, a bit dated but stil welcoming. It was great using the Honesty Bar whenever we wanted to and only had to pay for what we had on checkout. The shower was powerful and the bath is deep, great when you've been out all day on a cold day in February! Overall i would definitely recommend staying at the Willowsmere as it's very friendly, welcoming and the staff can't do enough for you, Thanks for a lovely stay, Yvonne & Keith

Hi Yvonne and Keith, I'm really pleased to see you enjoyed your stay with so much! It's always great to hear guests have appreciated the efforts we make to ensure everything is perfect! You'll be pleased to know the back lounge (we have 2) is next on the list for a make over - to date we've concentrated on updating the bathrooms (10 now completed!). It's worth mentioning that all our double, king / twin and four poster rooms have en-suites with both bath and shower - baths are increasingly rare in B+Bs these days! NB the only exception is our disabled room which has a purpose built wet room with full wheel chair access. Thanks for taking the time to share your views, much appreciated. All the best, Anthony

3 Night Break
We can only echo the excellent reviews of The Willowsmere that have preceded ours. It was perfect in every respect but particularly for the value, hospitality, cleanliness and comfort provided. It is ideally located as a base for the Lake District attractions and also worth mentioning that there are some excellent restaurants within a 15 min stroll making it a simple decision for the driver to leave the car in the car park and enjoy a few glasses of wine with an evening meal out.
Thank you to everyone at the Willowsmere for making our stay so enjoyable.

Cosy Weekend
On arriving we were warmly welcomed and invited to sit in the cosy entrance area. We were given relevant information about the area (as well as a free little map!) and good suggestions on possible restaurants and bars to visit, which were successfully tried and tested!

Our bedroom had a superior king sized bed with lovely, large windows allowing lots of natural light. The bathroom was of modern design and very clean. An excellent, powerful shower and free shampoo, shower gel, cotton wool available throughout our stay, not to mention facilities in our room to make hot drinks or squash!
Although we didn't make use of the 'honesty bar' we thought it was a great idea and it appeared well stocked. One additional feature which was reassuring throughout our stay was the front door is on a fob system therefore only residents and staff can gain access at any time, so if you are the sort of person who is concerned about safety and security, this is nice to know!

We loved the breakfast, with what we thought to be a very good selection, freshly cooked to order. I thoroughly enjoyed my eggs benedict with smoked salmon each morning and my partner highly rated his full English!

All the staff we spoke to were polite and friendly and were keen to make sure we were happy with everything. Pleased to be able to help or give their time to chat generally!
Overall we think Willowsmere is a lovely B&B, where we were made to feel very welcome and at home. Was perfect for our long weekend away.

3 Night Stay
Just returned from a three night stay for my husband's birthday, despite it raining constantly we had a fantastic time here. We were greeted with a very warm welcome by Jay with hot drinks and biscuits on arrival a nice touch and very gratefully received. Jay's local knowledge was very welcome to when it came to nice places to eat out and places worth a visit too. we made to feel at home from start to end of visit. The double room we stayed in was very nice the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was amazing. Anthony your mum is right:) us girls like a long soak after getting soaked on busy days out I loved the roll top bath very much. I loved this bath it made my stay even better than expected. The breakfast was excellent quality and service second to none, nothing was too much trouble you only had to ask.

The Willowsmere
On arrival was offered tea or coffee which was a nice thing. The service throughout our two night stay was exceptional - very friendly but professional - absolutely nothing was too much trouble. We felt welcome, which sounds an odd thing to say; but our experience of other b@b's has been that guests are treated as almost an inconvenience. Some of the rooms (we were a party of 11)are in need of refurbishment (which is on going) but they are spotlessly clean and comfortable. The bed linen, especially, is crisp and divine. Breakfast is excellent. A good choice very well cooked. Plenty of tea and coffee and more toast available; nothing was too much trouble. An honesty bar operates in the lounge with a good selection of alcoholic/non alcoholic drinks. An impressive whiskey choice too. All in all a thoroughly first class experience and we will definitely come back. Thank you to Anthony, Jay and staff for making my husband's Surprise 60th a success and for being great.

Tranquil Overnight Stay
My fiancée and I had a lovely overnight stay at the Willowsmere on 4th September. The staff were very friendly, welcoming and the local recommendations were really appreciated. We stayed in the 'cosy double', which while cosy was larger than I expected. The in-room facilities were great, the only niggle was that the bathroom ceiling needs a little attention. Overall a great stay with tasty breakfast as well. Thank you!

Hi Amy, many thanks for taking the time to post a review, much appreciated. I'm really glad you enjoyed your stay with us and that you found the cosy double less cosy than you were expecting!

Willowmere Hotel
From the moment we entered the host set us at ease with a pot of tea whilst he explained the hotel and the nearby towns attractions and eating places. Our room and en-suite were roomy and full of luxury comforts, including a four poster bed and a small decanter of sherry to say the least. Most enjoyable at a reasonable price

Though my friend I arrived around 6PM on Sunday, Jason welcomed us, gave us lots of information around this area, and answered my quick questions. We found the way easily and never lost. The Willowsmere in in a good location.
Without Jason's help, we couldn't contact a travel agent we booked and would miss a lovely enjoyable halfday trip. Jason's special lunch reminded us our school days. I hope the day of our next longer visit there from japan will come soon.

A Fantastic Breadth Of Fresh Air
We stayed at the Willowsmere for a weekend escape from London and had a fantastic time there. The rooms are clean and the beds very comfortable. The heartfelt warm welcome from Anthony was wonderful after our train got delayed by an hour. He gave us a potted history of the Lake District, and suggested some walks to go on, having tried most of them himself. His knowledge of the area was second to none, and he recommended a great Thai restaurant in Bowness, as well as a few lively pubs for a Saturday evening out.

Our room was very clean and tidy and the breakfast was exactly as previous guests had described it....superb.

Relaxing Stay At The Willowsmere
My son and I stayed at the Willowsmere for one night in two adjacent rooms on the top floor. The rooms are very well appointed and had great ambience - ideal after a tiring day out working on our boat and walking in the fields.

There is a wide choice for breakfast and the owners clearly take a pride in fulfilling their guests' wishes.

I stay at the Willowsmere regularly on my visits to Windermere and recommend it highly. There is a large parking area at the side of the hotel and it is only a few minutes to Windermere village.

I last visited Wiilowsmere last year after 7 years of traumatic time.
Anthony was very welcoming and on hand with every query. Problems dealt with immediately without hassle.
Esther was equally very hospitable at breakfast.
I recently visited again and had the pleasure of meeting Jay. My cuppa was made on arrival and he put me at ease immediately. Nothing seemed too much trouble.
I made my 9:15am appointment next day as Jay had arranged my taxi.
I would recommend Willowsmere to anyone.
They are professional and very friendly.
My room was immaculate, good selection of drinks from water, juice, tea, coffee & hot choc. ;)
Kettle didn't work, but I was very confident it would be sorted if I chose to tell them.

Breakfast was plentiful with choices and lovely to have fresh fruit.
The garden is gorgeous to sit in especially if the weather is good.

Short Break.
I had a very pleasant and enjoyable stay at the Willowsmere. Upon my arrival, I was welcomed with a coffee by Anthony, the owner. I had this in the main lounge, which reminded me of one of those old-fashioned gentlemen's clubs, and I mean that in a good way. He advised me on walks and activities nearby, and where best to eat in Windermere and the surrounding area. I had booked the larger single room, which actually had a double bed, and the en-suite bathroom had both a bath and shower mixer. A nice sized room, with everything that you might need. Excellent breakfast with plenty of choice of cereal and fresh fruit as well as the usual cooked options. Although the building is quite imposing looking, the Willowsmere is not remotely 'stuffy' and is certainly one of the friendlier places at which I have stayed. All in all, very impressive, and I shall endeavour to stay again, sooner rather tahn later.

Lovely Break
A decent size carpark, adjacent to a lovely old house constructed of Cumbrian slate. On arrival we were welcomed by Jason with a cafetierre of fresh coffee who then sat and chatted with us about what we hoped to gain from our visit. Having never been to Windermere before we were keen to explore the surrounding area whilst relaxing and spenidng time together. He then showed us to a very nice, newly decorated double room at the front of the property. Jason tells us they take the oppertunity in the low season, to decorate the guest areas. Our room was very nice with tea and coffee making facilitiues and a wall mounted tv with freeview. We had a large bathroom with bath and shower and complimentary tolietries where supplied.
Jason manages the hotel and it is owned by his cousin Antony. They both had a detailed of knowledge of the area, suggesting walks of varying degrees of difficulty and cycle routes. They were also able to give us details of nearby restaurants and cafe’s also local restuarants which he, which they and their partners had visited and had a folder with menus from each.
There was a variety of breakfast available each day , the full English was delious being locally sourced, and the smoked salmon and scrambled eegs was exceptional.
We would throroughly recommend the Willowsmere, Jason and Antony made us feel very welcome and we would not hesitate to visit again.

Perfect Base
Completely recommend the Willowsmere as an ideal base for your Lakes experience. I came to Windermere With my Mountian Bike to experience the hills, forests food and beer.

Upon Arival I was greeted by Anthony the owner of The Willowsmere. I was offered a Coffee and then Anthony personally gave me an induction to Windermere he gave me advice on places to visit we had discussions about the local bars, restaraunts (recomend the lamplighter) as a single traveler this information and advice was welcomed.

I came to Windermere on Train and traveled with my mountain bike, each night it was locked up by Anthony or his cousin Jason.

The Breakfasts where served between 8-30AM -9-30 Am the quality of the food was excellent anything you wanted you got !

The "Cumberland Breakfast" was epic ! dont ask for english lol Bacon, Sausage, Egg, Mushrooms, Toast, Beans Black Pudding, Tomato and Fried bread also a walk up for any Cereals Fruit, Yohgurt, Juice.

The Willowsmere also has a "Honesty bar" which is basicly a fridge full of a selection of beers wines and premix spirits in the lounge with a book you just take what you want and put it in the book. it is added to your room bill.

I completely enjoyed my stay at The Willowsmere. yes obviously i will be returning.

Its a easy very clean relaxing place to stay.

A Hidden Gem
Wonderful stay and wonderful hosting.
From arrival and a refreshing cup of tea with owner Anthony, through out our stay we had excellent service and care.
Breakfast is well above average and nice to have a choice rather than just a 'full english'.
There is a well stocked bar of malt's (30 plus) which I unfortunately didn't get chance to sample and also an honesty bar which is very refreshing in this day and age.

There are swimming and sauna facilities at a nearby hotel (400yrds) which are inclusive and a nice treat after a wet days walking.
Bedrooms are warm clean and quiet.

For the price I can't think of anywhere better to be honest, and I spent 20 years living in the Lakes.

Thoroughly recommended.

Classic B&b In The Lakes District
Antony has recently taken over this classic style residence. He greeted us with the offering of tea and immediately offered us lots of information on the best local pubs and restaurants as well as a nearby walk not to be missed at sunset. His recommendations were much appreciated and we enjoyed an ale in a fabulous pub and a fabulous meal at Lazy Daisys. Breakfast next morning was a real treat with the best hollandaise sauce on eggs we have eaten. Unfortunately for us, Antony was not about to share his recipe!

Best B&b
Thank you Anthony for a lovely stay, very friendly and welcome on arrival with helpful staff. Willowsmere is a very attractive B&B and with a large garden to relax in.The breakfasts were excellent with quick and attentive service.
We stayed for 4 nights and could not find a fault. The breakfast was very good and set us up for the day.
Chose this guest house since it was close to where my family were staying for a week's holiday.
The bathroom was very clean with a good sized bath/shower.
Built in closet space comes in very handy and helps to make the room feel less cluttered when all your stuff is in.
Tea and coffee facilities in the room with biscuits and a bit of Kendal mint cake.
We would definitely recommend this to everyone

Excellent Experience
Great service, great location ... very clean and nicely maintained place. I recommend it to anyone who needs to stay closer to Windermere lake but do want to avoid the town centre rush.
