“Wonderful Windermere B&B”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

After 45 hours in transit from Australia, we arrived at Annesdale House. Roger and Alena welcomed us and made us feel at home. The suite was large and comfortable, the cooked-to-order breakfasts superb. Be sure to take a leisurely stroll in the garden, with flowers everywhere. Our only regret is that we had to leave after four days of comfort and relaxation.

Thank you for your kind review and we are pleased that you have liked everything about Annesdale House. It is a very good place to 'chill' for a while and recharge your batteries during the demanding travels. From our own experience it is nice to have a break somewhere calm and quiet before you have to set off again. The garden is not quite as nice as I am writing this as the spring flowers have more less gone and like the fashion houses in change of season, we are now looking forward to the summer colours to come.
Please, come again and tell your friends where to stay in Windermere if they need a few days of R&R.
Many thanks again for staying with us and writing about us. We are very grateful

Bet wishes to you both,

Alena & Roger

I have just arrived home from an amazing weekend in Windermere (24th-26th May 2014). Annesdale House was a great place to stay. Alena gave us a very warm welcome and couldn't have been more helpful, The room was very clean and very spacious and the breakfast was lovely, with a good amount of things to choose from. Myself and my partner had a fantastic time and can't wait to return, I will be recommending Annesdale House to everyone I know!

Beautifully furnished and decorated with extremely comfortable beds and lovely bathrooms. Private entrance to a lovely garden with your own patio. The hosts Alena and Roger are charming and helpful and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. First rate breakfast with a large choice. I shall go back for another holiday.

Thank you for your very kind words. We have enjoyed your visit enormously and we too hope that you will return to stay again in not too distant future. The Lake District is lovely all year round and the winters relatively mild so walking inh the hills is almost always possible.
Thank you for being such super and easy guests and thank you again for writing on our behalf.
We are looking forward to seeing you again soon.

Kind regards,

We have just spent four wonderful days in the Lake District, staying in the Applethwaite Suite at Annesdale House. What a lovely warm and friendly retreat Alena and David have created. The suite has every comfort and is spacious, warm, and sunny, overlooking the beautiful garden. The bed is super-comfortable, and Alena's breakfasts are delicious. Roger and Alena are warm and helpful, yet considerate of their guests' privacy. We will most definitely return!

Thank you for writing to Trpiadvisor and reporting on your stay at our Applethwaite suite. We are pleased that you have found the bed super comfortable - most guests do. I have diceded some time ago to try it out myself and had the best night sleep for a long time. We think it is important specially as you travel around to be able to have a decent night sleep as one needs a lot of energy physically and mentally when you move about a lot.
Please, come and stay again and tell your friends about us.
Roger & I can't thank you enough for reviewing Annesdale House in such a positive way.

Kind regards,

Alena & Roger

We stayed at Annedale House on 8-10 May 2014. Roger & Alena, the owners of this place, gave us a warm welcome here. We felt like we were staying home. The place was clean. There was a private patio for each room and There was a very beautiful garden outside the rooms. The breakfast was excellent. A lot of items to choose for breakfast.

Last but not least, this location is very convenient to reach. It's in the centre of Windermere. If anyone would like to find a place to stay in Windermere, I strongly recommend this place.

Thank you for your kind comments about Annesdale House. It was lovely for us to have guests from Thailand - perhaps the first ones and we hope there will be more in the future.
If you ever visit the Lake District again, please come and stay. You have been such wonderful and fun & interesting guests and made our house quite alive.
We are grateful for your time and trouble to report on your stay.

We really enjoyed our time at Annesdale. It is in a great spot for exploring Windermere and the lakes district. The room was beautiful with a gorgeous garden out the back and the bed was amazing.. like sleeping on a cloud! I normally love coming home to my own bed but I actually missed this bed once we were home!
Alena was wonderful, so helpful with tips for activities for the day and ready to help with every other request.
There are plenty of pubs and restaurants nearby (for Chinese fans I would recommend golden mountain) with Windermere in walking distance and a longer (but picturesque) walk to Bowness.

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to write such a nice review about your stay and about our beds. When we travel around we feel that a good bed and good sleep is absolutely essential. You cannot always achieved this so when we set up Annesdale House, we have made the beds our priority. Hence only natural fibre, hand made, maximum amount of springs in base and mattress and forget the cost. All of our guests and ourselves think it was money very well spent.
We are sorry that the weather was not very kind to you, but the Lake District is really magic even without the sunshine and the spring colours in the rain come to their own. So many shades of green and so many bluebells...
Travel safely and come and see us again if you ever find yourselves in the North England. Many thanks for being such super guests and for writing about us.

Kind regards,

Alena & Roger
