Stayed for one night for my birthday. Very friendly hosts and staff. We had a beautiful room and all the fittings are top quality. John even provided us with glasses so we could drink our own wine and Liz transported us to the next village so we could look around and go for a walk. We would definitely stay there... More

Arrived @ 4:30 on the 2nd day of a visit to England from the States with no luggage. John greeted us warmly - showed us to our room - beautiful well furnished room on the 2nd floor. He served us drinks on the patio - overlooking the pond with beautiful plants and huge weeping willow trees. Dinner was fabulous -... More

We went there just for one night and it was a great stay. Very clean, big, and quiet. The garden is lovely and the host as well. The breakfast was very very good. We highly recommend this place. The bathroom was wonderful, the bed very comfy, tea coffee and chocolate in the room was a nice thing.

Our second visit and facilities have improved further! Liz & John make excellent hosts offering high quality accommodation in a modern house. Motorway access is via JC 43 M6 if traveling to or from Scotland. The local area itself is also appealing. Recently their son and daughter in law Andrew & Sarah have joined them and offer an extension of... More

The TA reviews of Willowbeck Lodge which award it five stars are all spot on. This was our second visit to this gem nestled in the Cumbria countryside, just a few minutes off the M6, and it certainly will not be our last. Willowbeck Lodge has quality oozing out of every aspect. The warm welcome, the fabulously comfortable bed (we... More

Do what you have to do in Carlisle, and for overnight accommodation, stay here at Willowbeck Lodge. Scotby is a 10 min drive away and it's well worth it. We had a room overlooking the lake, and it's a nice size room. The ensuite is sensational. We were asked what we wanted for dinner from a choice. And the food... More

I stayed here in the run up to my wedding. The location is great. About 10or 15 minutes drive from Carlisle. The rooms were all spacious and beautifully decorated. They were spotlessly clean. breakfast was substantial and very tasty every day. And the welcome/service provided was second to none. I would thoroughly recommend this place to everyone.

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!
