In the Heart of the Lake District rests The Willowsmere sandwiched between picturesque views and a short walk away from both Bowness and Windermere. This charming B&B offers everything you could possibly want from helpful and friendly staff, value for money, delicious food, clean and luxurious rooms and car parking spaces all within the perfect location. I can’t say enough... More

Me and my partner stayed here a couple of weeks ago for two nights and it was absolutely faultless! The room's were just as welcoming as the hosts, and the breakfast tasted like it was cooked by God himself

The place is lovely with 2 neatly decorated lounges and pleasantly furnished rooms. Breakfast is sumptous. And staff are v friendly and helpful. Need i say more? Overall it feels like a home away from home.

stayed here for two nights and it was lovely. The bedroom we had was a nice size and the bathroom was lovely. The breakfast in the morning was delicious and very filling. The welcome we had was amazing, and so helpful as we had never visited windermere before, we were told about places to eat or go for the day.... More

Fantastic stay over the 6th and 7th November. Superb clean and comfortable accommodation, warm hosts and a delicious Cumbrian breakfast made for a 10/10 score. I would find it very hard for anyone to find fault here, Thanks again..

We have just had a lovely weekend staying here to celebrate my big birthday. I would recommend it to anyone, they were really welcoming, the rooms are lovely, the breakfast sets you up for the day. Pity the weather was horrendous. We will certainly return to this lovely place.

We had a great stay here due to purely the fact that the welcome was so warmly and gave us all the info we needed to make the most of our stay in Windermere. It was such a friendly atmosphere with an honesty bar and nice little reception area (with a bell instead of receptionist). The room was nice but... More

Many thanks to Anthony and Jay for another great stay. This was my third time coming to The Willowsmere and even though I had a wonderful time the first time around, each time has been even better.
