  • The best of the best – great food and first class service. Liz and John made us feel very welcome and we will definitely stay again.

    Scott M
  • From the time we arrived until the time we left, we were treated as friends, not customers. A very enjoyable stay.

    Rob L
  • The rooms were all spacious and beautifully decorated. They were spotlessly clean. I would thoroughly recommend this place to everyone.

  • We have just returned from a wonderful stay at the Willowbeck….and already want to return!

    Ceri W
  • Whenever we are in the general area of Carlisle, we stay at this wonderful Bed & Breakfast. The breakfast (which is cooked to order) is something to behold.

    Ken Sproston
  • A great place to stop on the way south from Scotland. A very modern house with a wonderful galleried dining room.
