Return visit, this time with friends for a birthday celebration. We were not disappointed, very well looked after again. The only B&B to go to in Windermere! Thank you Alena and Roger.

Annesdale House is quite simply the most relaxing and welcoming place we have had the pleasure of staying at in the Lake District. Our suite, Applethwaite, was so homely and spacious we could have stayed forever. The suite was beautifully presented and had a wonderful view over the garden. Alena and Roger were the perfect hosts - they made us...

My husband and I stayed in the Elleray Suite and were extremely impressed. We usually stay in large hotel chains (such as W or Hilton) when traveling, so were looking for something spacious and modern in the Lake District. Annesdale House was the perfect mix of elegant interior and beautiful English gardens. The spacious marble bathroom was really a treat,...

We were delighted to read that you have enjoyed your stay with us. Thank you also for pointing out that the Wi-Fi signal is not very strong in the Elleray suite. We shall definitely look into this. It is good when people tell us about these things as we naturally do not stay in the suites ourselves. It was kind...

We stayed in the Applethwaite Suite, having read the reviews on Trip Advisor about how luxurious it is. I have to say it actually exceeded our expectations.

We stayed here for two nights with my family so we had the place to ourselves. The house is beautiful, with lovely gardens (we sat out on the terrace one evening in the sun and had a glass of wine).
