Beautiful house in a peaceful setting but only a couple of mintues from the M6. Liz and John were extremely helpful and welcoming, the rooms were beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean and the food (both in the evening and at breakfast) was delicious. Absolutely perfect. We would love to come back!

We have just returned from a wonderful stay at the Willowbeck....and already want to return! It's in a great location, just two minutes from the M6 and a great base for the likes of Carlisle, the lakes, Scotland and many historical sites. We were made to feel very welcome and can highly recommend eating here. The evening meal (fillet steak)... More

We booked this guest house after a recommendation and we were not disappointed. From the moment of booking we felt welcomed and cared for. Before arriving we were sent an email by the owner, Liz. She asked if she could book us somewhere for dinner or if we wanted we could stay in and she would devise a menu for... More

Well where should I start! Absolutely fantastic place. Lovely welcome when we arrived and shown to an immaculate room with everything you need for a luxury night away. Everything about our room was 5 Star. Our hosts were lovely and attentive to every need. We arranged to have dinner in the evening at an extra cost but boy was it... More

Willowbeck Lodge is a stunning high class hotel with a friendly and cosy feel. The rooms are very spacious, tastefully decorated and very clean. We were made very welcome here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The breakfast was great and the setting is so lovely. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

Willowbeck in a bespoke B&B set on the edge of a village near Carlisle. The grounds feature a pond and four mature willow trees. The building with its four bedrooms and atrium for dining and relaxing also features a fine Bistro menu for dinners and a superb selection of breakfast options. Liz & John, who run the B&B are fantastic... More

We stayed at this small, perfect hotel for one night on our way South. So close to the motorway, but a haven, we felt we where in the middle of nowhere. My first impression was how clean and organised it was. Everything was to the highest standard. The hosts, Liz and John and their son Andrew were so kind and... More

We stayed at Willowbeck Lodge for one night last weekend on our way to Scotland what a lovely find. A beautiful boutique hotel with extremely friendly hosts. As the hotel is only small we chose the Ash Suite and it was extremely well furnished and the bed so comfortable. Our bathroom only had a shower, which was all we required,... More

We only stayed for one night with Liz and John but we will be back. Oak Room was great and both breakfast and dinner were superb. Attention to detail and friendly welcome helped made out stay feel far to short.

We have just returned from our three nights stay and would like to add our praise to the many who have stayed with Liz and John before us. The accommodation, food, advice and surroundings are of the highest quality. We did not sample the evening meal but judging by our excellent breakfast it would have been a treat too. The... More
