We had a wonderful 2 night break in one of the luxuriously comfortable suites at Annesdale House. The cosy private sitting room was a bonus when the weather turned stormy; the bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in. Lovely garden. The full English breakfast was expertly cooked and absolutely delicious. Our host was lovely, interesting and... More

Just got home from 2 nights in this little slice of heaven!! The room was amazing with our own private living room, amazing peace and quiet by being off the road but so easy to find and so close to the heart of Windermere! Feel more like a guest in the lovely couples home that just another face and they... More

Perfect for a quiet break as a couple. Don't be put off from the appearance outside when you arrive. Annesdale is situated on the main road but you would never know once you are inside, as it is very quiet and private. It only has 2 suites, but is furnished and decorated to a very high standard, both with their... More

Thank you very much for sharing your impression about your stay at Annesdale House. We are pleased that you have found here everything you needed for quiet hideaway. We are in total agreement about the front of our house not being particularly appealing, in fact the front is the 'back of the house' and the lovely Victorian architecture is on... More

Just returned from a mid week break here, the perfect getaway, comfortable and super chilled, the suite we stayed in was just as photographed, super clean, we couldn't have asked for more. Basically left alone, hosts Roger and Alena, where welcoming and friendly, but there if we needed them.

We are not long back from staying at Annesdale House. Alena phoned us the day before we were arriving to make sure that someone would be in when we arrived. There was plenty of parking available and we were within walking distance of everything in Windermere and only 1.5 miles (a very lovely walk) downhill to Bowness on Windermere and... More
