This is a great B and B and in a really good position for visiting other parts of the Lakes. We had the disabled friendly room which gives you clear access to and from the room. With it being a Victorian building the interior doors a wider giving good access to the rest of Willowsmere although this would depend on... More

The reception from Jason was friendly, efficient and helpful. He suggested venues for the evening meal, which provided excellent food, and gave so much valuable information about the guest house and area. The superb standard of service from Jason and his team was maintained throughout my four day visit.The breakfast was freshly cooked and delightful. I had a double bed... More

We booked the Willowsmere for a long family weekend. Due to unforseen circumstances we had to rearrange our booking dates twice-the manager bent over backwards to accommodate our requests. During our stay we were offered as much guidance as we needed to ensure our time was maximised. The rooms, staff,faculties and location were excellent. Could not recommend it highly enough!... More

Just home from a 4 night stay at the Willowsmere and where to begin. On arrival Jason met us and explained the best places to eat and enjoyable walks around the lakes. We experienced all his recommendations and were not disappointed. Secondly, the bedroom was beautiful, comfy beds and the bathroom was extremely pleasant. We loved the little personal touches...

Ideal location and a short walk to Windermere town. Main area of Bowness was a longer walk, but easy for those fit and was picturesque by the lake. Good sized room and comfy bed. Pleasant welcome and service throughout. Clean and homely. Tastefully decorated bathroom. If there is anything to be negative on it would be the loose step by... More
