'I was greeted in the kindest and friendliest manner by Jay, the manager. He was happy to help and advice me with anything needed and made me feel truly comfortable and <at home>. His knowledge of the area is a great bonus and he\'d take the time to talk you thorough all the options of exploring, depending on your stay. The food is fresh, good quality and cooked with love. The owner Antony, Jay and all the staff are super kind, friendly and hard working. Their team work is amazing. I\'m coming from a background of 22 years in the service industry, been travelling all around the world and stayed in hotels up to 7*, therefore I can say <excelent work> when I see it. Willowsmere is a jewel, rare and polished by loving hands. Well done Willowsmere team, keep up the good work. Thank you very much for making me feel at home. Much love Mihaela Adriana'

'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\". This was our first B and B stay in years and the service and standards provided by the Willowsmere team were first class. It ticks all the boxes, accommodation, parking, service and location. We even had sunshine!'

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
5 stars 5

'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.'

'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.'

Room 11 is quite a small room with a double bed and the en-suite bathroom is nicely appointed but very cramped. In fairness the Hotel website does indicate that it is a small double.

He spent some time with us to help us get our bearings, gave us a map and pointed out some great places we could visit to make the most of our stay, including some nice places to eat and drink. Our stay was really comfortable, the rooms are lovely, and breakfast was very generous and tasty. They have the most gorgeous little garden there too. It\'s a lovely place to stay and I\'d definitely love to stay here again, maybe in the four poster next time!'

'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
5 stars 5

'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.'

'Would like to have rated this another half star if that was possible. Very friendly reception with tea, help with restaurants and other things. Really appreciated the honesty bar and general comfort. Only issues was deposit taken by card unexpectedly immediately after booking 2 months before, for the first night of two, which was half the total. Also a towel rail so hot it hurt in small bathroom of room 11 when touched accidentally when washing. Otherwise the Willowsmere is well worth returning to.'

Obliging and friendly hosts, a comfortable night\'s sleep with everything you could need provided in the room, an excellent breakfast with plenty of choices, a good location just outside the busy centre of Windermere - what\'s not to like?

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!'

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.'

As far as breakfast goes could not ask for any better we where thoroughly delighted and relaxed with our stay and will be back. Thank you all at Willowsmere!'

We especially appreciated information on the local area and the suggestions on what to do and see during our two days - it made all the difference.

'Very friendly and informative owners, obviously passionate about the local area and gave some great recommendations for good restaurants and pubs. The room was very comfortable and quiett (no young kids) The lounge and garden area were great to enjoy a beer from the honesty bar in the sunshine. Plenty of parking and a ten minute walk to town (the owner pointed out a nice back route which avoids the main road) We only made breakfast on one of the days as it finished at 9.30 and the bed was too comfy but it was well cooked and very tasty and the staff serving were very friendly. Plenty of parking available. Lovely weekend overall, will definitely be back.'

'We were met by Anthony upon arrival & were advised upon various restaurants/bars in the town that we were about to visit. The room was well presented & clean, toiletries etc., were to hand. We were given a bleeper type key for access to front door for when we returned later that night. We had a peaceful nights sleep, even though our room was at the front, the traffic dies away allowing you to sleep well. The breakfast was plentiful and varied, most places have a limited menu at breakfast, not so the Willowsmere... Can recommend this hotel to future guests, you will not be disapointed.'

Great Italian fare not too far down down the road--just a 10 minute or so walk into Windemere. Lovely restaurants and a grocery store very close by. We stayed in Room 5--comfortable and tastefully decorated--which had a ceiling fan! We slept like babies that night. Breakfast was wonderful--fantastic sausages and cheerful staff. Anthony managed to check us out and thanked us for our stay. Can't recommend enough...'

'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!!'

'Fantastic stay at the Willowsmere. Lovely warm welcome,tea on arrival and spot on advice on best places to eat and drink(thank you Jay). Lovely Room nice and quiet. Breakfast choice fantastic best coffee I have had in a B&B so far. Great to be able to park the car and forget about it until you leave. The only downside was not a long enough stay. Maybe next time. Thank you to Anthony and his wonderful team.'

'Had a most pleasant stay at this clean and comfortable hotel. Very helpful staff and a beautiful garden to sit in to boot :) The hotel is about a ten minute walk into Windermere or 35 mins to Bowness so ideally situated for evening jaunts after a long days hike. The proprietor is knowledgeable and helps with taxi hire or estate ant bookings as desired. I'd go again!'

'I had a technical hitch with my online booking, which Anthony handled promptly and efficiently. The 3-storey house was well signposted on the main road with easy & plentiful parking. 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. I can't fault this place and would happily return.'

'This well positioned guest house has to be one of the best we've staid in over the years. Following our arrival we were provided with a complementary pot of filtered coffee and given recommendations on where to eat - which all proved worthwhile. Our two rooms were exquisite - spacious, very clean, well equipped and beautifully furnished. The recently renovated bathrooms, which provided complementary Cole & Lewis toiletries, were a godsend following a long day of trecking in the rain. The hearty breakfast and choice available was more than we expected, well presented and served with a smile and chat. We would highly recommend a stay at the Willowsmere and look forward to staying again (in a 4-poster bedroom next time).'

We Were Duly Impressed
5 stars 5

'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.'

'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.'

'Hi Rupert, many thanks for posting a review, much appreciated! I'm delighted you enjoyed your stay with us so much and found everything to your liking. 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'

'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'

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'

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
5 stars 5

'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
5 stars 5

'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. All the staff were very friendly and always so helpful and polite we will be recommending you to everyone many thanks to all staff for making our stay with you great Tanya'

'Hi Tanya, I'm delighted you enjoyed your with so much. We do all we can to make guests feel welcome and comfortable and to get the most out of their stay, sadly our influence over the weather is unproven as yet! I'm particularly pleased to hear you loved the bath so much - we've just installed 6 of these and in fact completely renovated 10 of our bathrooms - all double rooms* now have a bath which is very rare around here! * Except our ground floor disabled room which has a wet room with walk in shower. If other readers want to sample the roll top baths they are in all our four poster rooms! I will pass on your thanks to the rest of the team, they'll be equally delighted by the feedback! Thanks again for choosing us and for taking the time to post a review - much appreciated! All the best, Anthony'

The rooms are so relaxing to be in, shower was great(room 10). The Wi-Fi does work, but like any older house the thicker walls does lose the signal at times. Eating places check with the hosts we went to lazy daisy and hooked. This is an Amazing place, thanks for everything guys.'

We have replaced 10 bathrooms in the last year which has been quite a slog but I'm thrilled with the results and really pleased they are being appreciated by our guests. We are quite unusual in the area as every double occupancy room has a bath with shower (except our disabled room which has a full walk in wet room) whilst many of our counterparts have only en-suite shower rooms.

The Willowsmere
5 stars 5

'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.'

'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.'

B and B was clean and tidy and has lovely gardens which our room overlooked. Breakfast was delicious! We found the decor slightly dated but this should not take away from the overall experience. Location was ok, slightly just too far away from the town for us, but overall we would defo stay here again.'

'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. Thank you for the warm hospitality, we will be back!'

Our room was very clean and tidy and the breakfast was exactly as previous guests had described it....superb. Anthony couldn't have been more accommodating and we would definitely stay here again.

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.

Our room was cosy and quirky had everything we needed plus the bonus of orange squash in room. The bathroom is dated but Anthony is doing the rooms up as time goes on, (Anthony has only had the place for a year) Breakfast was plentiful with choices and lovely to have fresh fruit. The garden is gorgeous to sit in especially if the weather is good. There is a honesty bar for guests to use, Anthony does provide a bar early evening however we didn't get to sample that one.

'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.'

I'm really pleased you enjoyed your first visit to The Lakes, and we'd love to welcome you back here. All the best, Anthony'

Lovely Break
5 stars 5

'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. Peter and Lindsey Mills 6th - 9th Feb 2013'

Perfect Base
5 stars 5

'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
5 stars 5

'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.'

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!

'Hi William, thanks for taking the time to post a review, appreciate it. Glad you enjoyed your stay and found the place friendly and clean. You'll be glad to know that the room you stayed in is due to get a new bathroom over the winter, but I promise the towels will be just as fluffy! All the best, Anthony'

'Hi Geoff, glad to hear you enjoyed your stay under my ownership - phew! Nice to read the addition of baked beans is appreciated (for me a cooked breakfast is just too dry without them!) and the honesty bar a welcome addition. Look forward to seeing back here sometime in the not too distant future. All the best, Anthony'

Best B&B
5 stars 5

'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'
