Quiet location, comfortable bed in lovely suite with private entrance, great breakfast - good weather enabled us to sit outside in the owner's beautiful garden. Alena was the perfect host and we will certainly stay again which totally eliminates spending hours looking for a place to stay.

We had a two night stay and were very impressed as it had it all. Great location close to everything, private entrance via the garden gave us freedom to come and go as we pleased. Comfy bed and great bathroom, all spotlessly clear. Great hosts and great breakfast, nothing was too much trouble

Husband and I spent the early May bank holiday here. Gracious hosts, comfortable and spacious rooms with a lovely view of the garden. Excellent location to walk around the area. We will definitely go back the next time we visit Windermere.

Had 3 night stays here. The house and garden is beautiful. The beds are comfortable. Near Windermere Railway Station and Tourist Information Centre. Alena collected us at Windermere Railway Station and gave us a warm welcome. Will stay here again if I visit Windermere again.

After 45 hours in transit from Australia, we arrived at Annesdale House. Roger and Alena welcomed us and made us feel at home. The suite was large and comfortable, the cooked-to-order breakfasts superb. Be sure to take a leisurely stroll in the garden, with flowers everywhere. Our only regret is that we had to leave after four days of comfort... More

Beautifully furnished and decorated with extremely comfortable beds and lovely bathrooms. Private entrance to a lovely garden with your own patio. The hosts Alena and Roger are charming and helpful and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. First rate breakfast with a large choice. I shall go back for another holiday.
