I booked our stay wanting a convenient stopover with dinner, on our drive from Scotland to London, and really couldn't have made a better choice. We were met on arrival by John who showed us to our room, and helped us upstairs with our luggage. Although we had one of the smaller rooms, it was comfortable with bottled water, snacks... More

The room was spacious, well furnished with a lovely bathroom including a bath and walk in shower and plenty of towels. Toiletries and amenities were available and of good quality. There was ample...

Willowbeck Lodge is tucked away in Scotby, near Carlisle. A refreshing architectural design with soaring ceilings. Nothing pretentious here, just a very comfortable, warm environment. The Willow room is very spacious and beautifully appointed with a view over the small lake at the front of the house. There are plenty of closets for clothes and a great bathroom. In the... More

From the initial welcome to the final cheerio this is a place to recommend to just about anyone. All management and staff were very friendly and helpful. The place itself was spotless. A breakfast to die for - obviously locally produced products and the difference was noticeable. I honestly cannot think of any negatives - the staff are to be... More

We have tried all the nicer hotels in the area and none of them are this quality. Great rooms with lots of personal touches and a really great breakfast. Such a lovely setting too and the service is friendly and personal. This is easily our first choice.

We had a wonderful weekend at Willowbeck Lodge. We stayed in the Willow room, which was very spacious, comfortable, beautifully decorated, and had a lovely big en suite bathroom. The lodge is beautifully kept, and extremely clean. The surroundings are stunning, and there's lots of lovely walks locally. Fini's kitchen serves fabulous food, we ate there on Saturday night, and... More

Lovely accommodations. Quiet, clean, modern with a touch of old world charm, warm and cozy. Highly recommend not just for business but weekend retreats too. John and Liz were hugely helpful. Breakfast was fantastic. Setting is absolutely calming.

we stayed here for two nights visiting our daughter and partner in Carlisle, we ate in he restaurant one evening and in Carlisle the second evening. It was a lovely experience, John and Liz were superb hosts and the award- winning breakfast was brilliant. The room was lovely, spotlessly clean and the bed really comfy. We will definitely be back!
