5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2014

This is the first time I have ever written a review but felt compelled to do so after staying at the Annesdale House. What an exception experience. The hosts, Roger and Alena, are lovely and give the right balance of being personal, whilst allowing you the freedom to appreciate the lovely surroundings. The suite was imaculate, and more beautiful than the pictures shows. The attention to deal in all areas is first class. We will certainly be back to visit when the weather becomes a bit more favourable. Thank you Roger and Alena, for a wonderful stay.. Sue & Paul.

Thank you for such a wonderful review of Annesdale House and we are so pleased that you have found our home comfortable and a restful place. I suppose that we are very lucky to be able to take care of our clients with professional attitude but without being intrusive, as the small scale of our operation allows us to do just this.
Please, do come again. We welcome guests who are appreciative and inspirational, they fill us with joy.
Many thanks again and best wishes to you both.

We stayed a couple of nights at Annesdale House and were not disappointed! Alena and Roger were both very friendly and we felt comfortable right from the start. Our bedroom and bathroom were amazing, extremely spacious, spotlessly clean and very comfortable in every respect.The bed was fantastic and additional surprises included a fridge, CD and DVD players. We particularly loved the garden and patio area available for our personal use, also creating a very attractive and welcome view from the French doors. The breakfast was very tasty - second to none - and service was excellent. Very close proximity to local amenities and services in Windermere was a fantastic bonus, but we also enjoyed walking a little further into Bowness and the recommended drive out to Hawkshead. All in all a perfect break, we can't fault our visit and look forward to our next stay at Annesdale House - which we will gladly recommend to family and friends.

Roger and I are so pleased that you have found our home comfortable, clean and friendly and we are very grateful for your review
. My apologies for not replying to your generous comments earlier but our lives have been taken over by having our daughter and a little granddaughter to stay during the last couple of months. They are very precious to us and so other activities therefore had to be postponed. I know you will understand and as a grandmother I hope to be as fortunate as you that one day our granddaughter and I will also be travelling the world together. I wish for nothing more.
Your kind comments about your stay at Annesdale are greatly appreciated and we hope that we may meet again one day.
A very Happy New Year to you and our thanks and best wishes.

We stayed two nights and the suite we were given was of a good size, very clean and had an excellent sitting room that looked towards the garden and a private entrance. There are lots of nice touches such as the fridge in the room as well as other gadgets such as a CD player. Breakfast was good (and certainly the best sausages on our two week trip) and Alena, in particular, was very attentive and keen to ensure everything was in order. On the down side the bathroom was a bit tight on size and as the shower was in the bath some guests might find it difficult to get in and out. Although on a busy road the fact it is so close to the shops and restaurants in town means it is only a short stroll to everything you need in the evening.

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to review Annesdale House. We are pleased you have had a nice time staying in our home and enjoyed what we provide. The bathroom in the Applethwaite suite is on the smaller side but sadly we cannot extend it without spoiling the original lay out of the Victorian house.
We also think that the location of Annesdale House is so good that we never want to live anywhere else. You don't need a car and literally everything is within a few minutes from our front door.
Sorry for the delay in replying to your generous comments and we hope tha tyou will visit us again one day.

Best wishes,

Alena & Roger

My Grandmother and I spent a few nights in different parts of England, and when we came upon this place, we were blown away with the comfortable situation and hospitality of Annesdale House. While it did take some work to find, due to a lack of signage, the experience at this B&B has been nothing but pleasant. The owners of the place are eager to ensure that every need is met, the food prepared leaves nothing to be desired, and the location puts everything within a short walk's reach. The room we stayed in was spacious, cozy and lacked for nothing.

It was a great pleasure to have you and your Grandmother to stay with us. We could not wish for more delightful and interesting guests to stay with us. It was was so kind of you to take the time and trouble to review our establishment in such a positive way and we do appreciate it.
It was especially wonderful to hear about your family and life in Canada - I felt honoured to share suc h interesting topics of conversation with you.
I hope you will have many more interesting trips with you Grandmother and if you ever travel back to England, make sure you will include a few days to stay with us.

With kind regards, thanks and best wishes,

we went to Windermer in search of a romantic place to stay for our Honeymoon and we were not disappointed. Alena and Roger with their friendly and welcoming approach made us feel at home in in this beautiful Bed and Breakfast All the amenities and best restaurants are nearby, the room was spotless, tastefully decorated, with a luxurious bed and the massive bathroom with the underfloor heating was a treat, the large garden is astonishing and after our walks in the lake we spent few sunny afternoons surrounded by magnificent flowers in full bloom. We had delicious breakfast cooked by the owners and lots of interesting conversations about Art and walking in the Lake district. We sincerely thank our hosts for making our stay so comfortable and enjoyable and highly recommend this place as one of the best we ever stayed in.

Dear J&G,
thank you soo much for writing such nice things about us and our house.
However, the biggest surprise was to read that your stay at Annesdale was your Honeymoon! You have kept that a real secret and we had no idea, otherwise we would have made a much 'bigger fuss' of you!. We are delighted and happy for you both as you are such agreat couple already and please, accept our belated but sincere congratulations for a very long and happy future together.

Many thanks for the stunning review and good luck to you both. Until we meet again.....
With best wishes and in gratitude,

Beautiful suite of rooms that were extremely tastefully decorated with quality furnishings. Alena and Roger were interesting, relaxed, genuinely welcoming and made a lovely breakfast. This is one of the best B & B's I have stayed at. Thank you.

Stayed for a week in this beautiful Bed and Breakfast. Perfectly situated in Windermere for restaurants and shops. The rooms were beautifully and tastefully decorated. They were immaculately clean and the bedding and towels were of a very good quality.
Breakfast was delicious and could be served in the suite or the dining room which again was magnificently decorated. Fresh flowers from the beautiful garden were in abundance. The private entrance and patio area made this house even more special and I am sure I will be returning again and again as B and B's this good are hard to find.
