Managed at the last minute to get in here...Absolutely fab! Beds wonderfully comfortable, hospitality superb, and breakfast unequalled. Much better than the hotels we have stayed at in Windermere in days gone by. Heartily recommended.More

Thank you for your kind review, and grateful for your comments. It was a great pleasure to meet you and have a chat about the life in Windermere in the past. Glad to know that you have enjoyed our hospitality and we hope that you will return in the future and stay with us for a bit longer.
Roger and I wish you all the very best and exciting future with your projects in the South of England.
Many thanks and hope to see you again,

We would like to recommend all travellers to stay at Annesdale House. This is not running commercially. Instead, the host - Roger and Alena treated us as part of their family :)
We had stayed in their house for 2 nights in Mar in Applethwaite Suite (Highly recommend). The suite is absolutely clean, tidy, spacious and the whole setting will make you feel at home. There is a lovely garden in front of the living room. In sunny day, sun will shine into the room and it is really a place that you would like to make it as your own. Railway station and the big supermarket, Booth, are just a few minutes walking distance to the house. Very convenience. We love the breakfast. Both Roger and Alena are excellent cook. They love to talk with travellers.
Thank you for such a lovely review and we are delighted you have enjoyed your stay at Annesdale House. We love interesting people coming to stay with us and it is a great joy to learn about other people's customs and culture.
Please, come to stay again one day and recommend us to your firends and family.
Many thanks and happy travelling,
Roger & Alena
Annesdale is a beautiful house in a great location. The owners are incredibly kind and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. We stayed in the Applethwaite room which has a large sitting room leading out onto a sunny terrace. The breakfasts are excellent, home cooked to a very high standard. We will not stay anywhere else in the lake district now that we have been here.
It is very kind of you to comment on your stay at Annesdale House and give us such glowing review.
We are delighted that you have felt at home here and enjoyed the service we provide here. We believe that you may be visiting the Lake District again during the summer and if you decide to stay with us again, please let us know as soon as you know the dates as we get booked up very quickly.
It was a realy pleasure looking after you and we wish you all the best in the future.

We had a very enjoyable stay at Annesdale House. It’s a beautiful house with a pleasing garden. We stayed in Applethwaite room and it was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. It’s nice to have a separate sitting area and would have been super to use the patio on sunny days. The bed feels very luxurious and the underfloor heating is a nice touch.
It’s located a short stroll from the station but Roger was kind enough to pick us up with our luggage. A few minutes walk takes you into the main part of Windermere while a longer walk down the hill will take you to Bowness and the Lake. There are plenty of eating options nearby for dinner. We travelled without a car and found it easy to get around on local buses.
Breakfast is cooked to order and was very tasty each morning. We didn’t feel rushed in the slightest. Alena and Roger were friendly and don’t miss the wonderful homemade shortbread in the room!
It was a great pleasure to have you staying here and thank you for taking the time and trouble to write a review.
We are very lucky with our location - so near to the Tourist Office, public transport, restaurants and pubs and all the other town amenities - all within just minutes walk.
So nice to know that you have enjoyed your short break and that you will b e recommending us to your friends. Your kind comments are gratefully received. Thank you.

I have just one complaint! The Trip Advisor website does not allow me to award a 6* rating so I shall have to rate Annesdale House 5*.
One thing is absolutely certain: whenever we visit the lakes in the future, we shall contact Alena in the first instance.
The spotless room has its own access from the large and peaceful garden as well as internal direct acesss into the main house.
We had a tastefully decorated lounge area adjoining the bedroom which had a most comfortable bed.
Breakfast may be taken in the room or in the main house in the family dining room. Food and service was first class.
For us this is now the benchmark for all B+Bs and there is no alternative whenever we visit the Lake District in the future.
Your kind comments on your stay at Annesdale House are very touching and have been received with great thanks from both of us. Roger and I are delighted that you have found our house comfortable and that you felt at home. It is very satisfying for us to read this as Annesdale has been our family home for almost three decades and we want to keep it that way.
Thank you for being such kind guests and your generous praise has been very much appreciated. We do hope that you will visit us again sometime in the future,
Best wishes to you both,
Alena & Roger
