About the hotel

"The Willowsmere is an imposing Lakeland slate building dating back to around 1850, originally a gentleman's residence it is now the friendliest place to stay in Windermere! We pride ourselves on our warm welcome, comfortable rooms and excellent breakfast menu. The Willowsmere is tastefully decorated to a high standard and includes the luxuries you would expect if staying in a fine English hotel. The Guesthouse has 13 bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities and all recently refurbished including new luxury pocket sprung beds and those little extras that make your stay a pleasant and relaxing one.

There are 2 lounges for guests to use and a large landscaped secluded garden where you can enjoy a drink from the well-stocked cellar or from the honesty bar or from our extensive whisky selection. Both lounges and all bedrooms have free WiFi access. The Willowsmere has a large off road car park, and is centrally located; 8 minutes walk from Windermere centre and train station and about the same from the tranquil shores of Lake Windermere. The building is of course non-smoking but we do have smoking areas outside. REGRETFULLY WE CANNOT ACCEPT PETS NOR CHILDREN UNDER 12 YEARS OLD. PLEASE NOTE OUR RECEPTION CLOSES AT 8PM WITHOUT PRIOR ARRANGEMENT.

Willowsmere Guest House Review

The Willowsmere Guest house is an excellent place to stay.

Ideally located for Windermere and Bowness, which are both within walkable distance. Also ideal base to venture further afield. The staff could not be more helpful and polite, The room was cosy, although the bathromm radiator did not work, which made it rather chilly. The food was excellent and I would recommend this place to anyone for an enjoyable stay.
