Our daughter made the booking as we all wanted to visit Hadrians Wall on our way from Edinburgh to London. We were curious to see where we were staying and were more than pleasantly surprised as we drove down the driveway and parked underneath the weeping willows, at the grandeur of this lovely B and B. This huge home is... More

I booked Willowbeck Lodge at the last minute for my mum and her partner. They usually stay with us in the next village but my husband had a nasty virus which they didn't want to catch. It could have been a disastrous weekend but Willowbeck saved the day! We arrived to a very warm welcome from John and Liz. Nothing... More

Lovely location but not the best food, eaten here twice and felt the same both times. Staff a little cold, feel that cakes are overpriced. Afternoon tea as a suggestion should be homemade we felt as though shop bought cakes were not really good enough!!!

I cannot think of a single negative thing to say about our stay at Willowbeck lodge! Everything was excellent inc the rooms, beds, bath, shower , food, service, location, bistro/cafe, staff et al. I could write a long essay on the place but they say the proof of the pudding is in the eating so go ahead and enjoy. Many... More

What a lovely, welcoming, relaxing place to stay. Our only mistake was not having a meal here on the first night, as the evening meal (only for residents at the moment) was simply perfect and easily comparable to restaurants in the local area. During the day a small cafe/ bistro serve excellent bites, which was a shame as we had... More

By far the best accommodation of its type we have experienced. All the usual top marks: quality accommodation, friendly, excellent food. This really is the home from home you are looking for with a bit of luxury thrown in for good measure. Owners John and Liz bend over backwards to ensure your stay is relaxing and comfortable. Staff are highly... More

If anyone wishes to break a long journey either to or from Scotland stay at the Willowbeck Lodge, Nr Carlisle just off the M6. The welcome was both warm and friendly and our treatment from the family who both own and run the premises remained so. The bedroom was large, spotlessly clean with the comfort of a lounge as it...

I booked all four rooms for for the weekend as my son got married in Scotby. The welcome was warm and friendly. The rooms are superb and spotlessly clean. The bedding is particularly lovely. We had a fantastic wedding weekend made even better by Willowbeck's beautiful setting. Can't fault the place and I'm not the easiest to please. Would recommend... More

We arrived to a very warm welcome and were shown to our lovely room (oak). It was very large and comfortable, with crisp bedding and lovely fluffy towels in the modern bathroom with corner spa bath and walk-in shower, plus welcome toiletries. It was spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. We stayed just the one night as part of a trip... More

I rang at 9.45 pm on a Saturday night and the host was able to offer me a room. My energy had been totally zapped after a journey the day before from Cheshire to St Andrews. Emotionally drained too as daughter starting University. Returning home the next day I was only two hours away but needed rest. I got it... More
