What a wonderful long weekend in a fabulous home. Your made to feel very welcome and nothing is too much trouble for our hosts Roger & Alena. The gardens are wonderful and the exclusive patio area is the ideal place to sit out on a summers evening, just chilling with a bottle of wine. Breakfast is traditional full English or... More

Can't fault it at all, room was lovely, nicely decorated, spotless and the owners were perfectly attentive. Breakfast was tasty with numerous options to choose from, when we requested something that they didn't have it appeared the next day. Would recommended to my friends and family to stay here with no qualms at all. Fantastic weekend.

We stayed here for our ten year wedding anniversary and I have to say it was absolutely perfect. The suite was beautiful. I was expecting the usual ensuite bedroom, but this was so much more. We had our own entrance leading off a lovely patio and garden into our huge living room, which was very tastefully furnished with floor to... More

Excellent position to explore Windermere and the surrounding area. Annesdale House is just as described lovely secluded gardens and a spacious bedroom with a sitting area. The bathroom was great - large bath, strong hot shower and underground heating. Alena is very friendly and has a lot of local knowledge if you want some advice where to visit. Excellent breakfast....

We stayed at Annesdale House for two nights last weekend. It's a hidden gem in Windermere. Everything about the house and gardens is beautiful- you just can't fault it. Our room was more like an apartment with its own private entrance and patio. The bathroom and quality of fittings can only be described as luxurious. Alena is an attentive host... More

From the moment we arrived at Annesdale House Alena and Roger made us feel very welcome and valued. Nothing was too much trouble for them, they were always happy to chat and give their good advice on places to visit in the area. We stayed in the Applethwaite Suite which had a luxury bedroom with an en suite bathroom and... More
