Why we've chosen The Willowfield

It’s the hosts that make the family-run Willowfield feel like home - Peter’s gentle banter over breakfast and Georgina’s home cooking. Breakfast, which is served in the conservatory to take full advantage of those misty morning views, is a real priority and features local sausages and bacon from the “good old fashioned butchers” at Silverdale. The grand Victorian townhouse sits in a peaceful spot on the Arnside promenade, just far enough from the village centre to be silent at night and to offer uninterrupted views of the Helvellyn range. The views keep guests coming back time and time again – and you’ll often find them camped out in two well-used recliners in the dining room, spotting scope at the ready. Many guests are keen walkers and wildlife enthusiasts – orchid seekers, butterfly-buffs and entomologists – so if you’re here to explore the area’s natural highlights, you’ll be in good company.
