In this world of gratuitous hype, where so much is promised by so many, but delivered by so few,Willowbeck Lodge is a real gem. From the stunning setting, the quality of the décor and furnishings, and the food, John and Liz preside over a an establishment you will want to return to again and again. Although we only stayed one... More

What an ideal location for such a superb stopover! Family run, family feel - guests made to feel part of the family. Room (Oak) was exquisite, the food excellent and the ambience sublime - the perfect conclusion to our holiday en route home. A real jewel in the Cumbrian crown - thank you John, Liz, Andrew and Hazel.

We arrived from a week's self catering in Scotland to spend our wedding anniversary night in the Lodge, only to find I had left our overnight bag with all our clothes etc for the stay in Scotland. It meant a rushed 3 hour return trip to collect it, ruining our evening, and my wife, to put it mildly, was not... More

We have just spent an idyllic 3 nights at Willowbeck Lodge, and will definitely return again. From the first moment we arrived until our final goodbye our every need and requirement was catered for. Liz and John were the perfect hosts and could not have been more friendly and obliging. We stayed in the Oak room, which is a large... More

I stayed here on a recent visit to Carlisle. Located a short distance from the motorway, I was pleasantly surprised to find it was entirely peaceful and set within beautiful grounds. There is a small village nearby and Carlisle itself is a short journey away. Although not walking on this occasion, this would be an ideal location for exploring the... More

Pristine, wonderfully comfortable room with all needs supplied in a spectacular architect designed house in a lovely, peaceful setting. Our hosts, John & Liz, were welcoming & accommodating & the atmosphere is very relaxed. We unfortunately could not get there until late, so didn't get the chance to sample dinner, which judging from breakfast & the menu on offer throughout... More

A wonderfully warm welcome even prior to arrival, communication from Liz and John is fantastic and un-intrusive. Upon arriving again Liz and John could not be more accommodating the room and facilities were very well explained and Liz even bought up a glass of wine, perfect after a long drive and a long day's work. I slept, undisturbed by a... More

The owners if this beautiful b&b couldn't have don't more to make our stay enjoyable. We even stayed an extra night. We were there for a wedding and it was perfect from start to finish. Highly recommend a visit!
