We stayed for two nights and the Annesdale was perfect. Excellent location, loved the patio area, lounge and the private entrance. Alena made us very welcome and we would highly recommend it for a break in the lakes.

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
