Reviewed 20 May 2006

We have just returned home from staying at willowbeck lodge in Carlisle, it was wonderful, if you are looking for wonderful food, stunning accommodation, fabulous surroundings and the best host and hostess Liz and John, then look no further, this is the finest guest house in the whole of England. They have 4 rooms all en suite. all beautifully furnished spotlessly clean, fresh flowers in all the rooms, tea and coffee making facilities, even chocolates, in the bathroom there is an excellent supply of very high quality toiletries should you forget anything. Also if you should need it, a laptop at the guests disposal. We highly recommend it. If you are looking for a tiny piece of paradise, Willowbeck Lodge can give it you.

I stayed at Willowbeck for 1 night on business and I have to say it was absolutely perfect, The standard of the room was superb with great attention to detail paid in every aspect.

The owner, John was both very helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The surroundings were very tranquil, Willowbeck is ideally located for the major motorway network.

I will definitely being staying there again, highly recommended.

We stayed three days end of April/ beginning of May 2006. We were visting our youngest son who lives in Carlisle. This is a very pleasant location with a pond and bird feeders which are visted very regularly. The lodge is small with three ensuite rooms but the building is very modern with an exciting style of design balanced by it's tranquil location.
John looked after us with some excellent friendly service and superb cooking. We were also playing golf on some of the local courses and he intoduced us to Carlisle golf course.
We had a great stay and look forward to our next visit. No hesitation in recommending this as an excellent place to stay

Stayed April 2006

Myself and my wife, Lisa, stayed at Willowbeck Logde over a period of three nights and I can safely say that i will be returning as soon as time becomes available! John and Liz immediately make you feel at home and comfortable in their wonderful accomodation set in idylic grounds (great opportunities for all you wildlife enthusiasts!)

The food was absolutely fabulous. Mouth watering meals to tickle the taste buds. Michelin standard i'm sure!

The rooms are beautifully decorated, the dining room being the centre piece with a wonderful view over the willow pond.

The success of our rambling holiday was increased ten fold by Liz, John and Willowbeck Lodge. It was nice to see our six children again upon our return home, but i know where i'd rather be!

Thanks again, top class!
