Having spent three years living in the Lake District, we wanted to find somewhere special to stay to celebrate our anniversary and searched long and hard on the internet to find the perfect place.
From the first reply to my email enquiry it was clear that I had found that special place.
We arrived in Windermere late on Friday night tired and in the pouring rain. We found it hard to find the house and Alena kindly came to meet us at the station.
We stayed in the Applewaithe suite and when we arrived we found a card and bottle of wine from Alena and Roger to celebrate our anniversary, which was such a knid and thoughtful gesture and much appreciated.
Our room was fantastic. We had our own sitting room with comfy sofa, CD player, DVD player, flat screen TV, splendid fire and underfloor heating. We spent a large amount of our time sitting reading on the sofa looking out of the huge windows onto the garden. There was a door leading off the sitting room onto the terrace and the garden beyond. The bed was huge and very comfy. Lots of little touches made the place really special.
We ordered breakfast in our room. When this arrived the next morning it was fantastic, the coffee table was reaaranged into a dining table and the breakfast was beautifully presented. We're not huge eaters in the morning and so just ordered a continental style breakfast, however I'm sure that the cooked breakfast would be of an equally high standard. I ordered fruit and yogurt and kind of expected it to be something simple or tinned, but I was given a fresh fruit salad with blueberries, raspberries, peaches, melon etc .
Alena was so kind and helpful the whole time we were there, checking we were ok or wnated anything, but also giving us our privacy in her house which we really welcomed.
We had such a lovely time and the house is located in a great place for walking around Windermere or travelling to other places in the Lake District.
Were sad that we could not have stayed longer as arriving late on the Friday and leaving Sunday morning as we had other commitments meant that we couldn't enjoy the place for as long as we would have liked.
We will definately be going back to Annesdale House and will be recommending it to all our friends and family.
Thank you for such a lovely time.
