We were driving north from Oxford to northern Scotland and wanted to break out trip into two days. We found Willowbeck online as it was near the M6 and seemed a nice place to stop off (and better than a motel). We arrived a bit late (800pm) and saw that the hosts were serving dinner to the other guests. Since we hadn't booked, we weren't able to eat there (I highly recommend that you book to eat your dinner at the lodge) but the hosts quickly made a phone call and arranged for us to eat at a near by restaurant, which was delicious.
The house is newly renovated/built and all the amenities are current. it is cozy but open and bright. I have mold and dust mite allergies and was happy to find the rooms and linens and beds sparkling clean and fresh/new. the beds were comfortable and bathroom small but highly functional.
Breakfast was delicious and we agreed that if we were looking for a place to come back for a longer stay (weekend or a few days hiking in Cumbria anyone??) we would book into Willowbeck for the stay without hesitation.
It's always great to discover a little gem!
