Closure due to escape of water. Closed until end of March 2020 - at the latest!
Unforrtunately we have had to close to carry out repairs to our kitchen after a flood due to a leak on New Year's Day. We sincerely apologize to the guests whose bookings we have had to cancel and also to those who have rung and wanted to stay with us at the beginning of this year. We are working flat out and are in cooperation with our insurers to get things sorted and carry out all the necessary work to our usual high standards. We hope we may be able to re-open sooner than later and shall inform you via the website or personally..
Afternoon and Evening Treats from May 2019
We are delighted to announce that by special request of a number of our guests we are now offering a range of afternoon and evening treats:
Cream Teas with homebaked scones, fresh whipped cream and Claire's delicious handmade strawberry jam served with a selection of artisan teas in an individual teapot or a cafetière of freshly ground coffee, served with warm or cold milk
If you prefer cakes to scones, we also have a selection of homemade cakes, baked with Doves Farm organic flour, for you to enjoy with your tea or coffee.
For the evenings we are now offering cheese or charcuterie platters for two (or one) for you to enjoy with your own wine or beer, which you can store in your own individual fridge here in Westwood. We are also happy to provide the appropriate glasses to go with the drink of your choice or make you a cup of tea to go with your meal.
Enjoy an afternoon or evening treat in the garden or on the decking, as well as in the dining room, with delicious food and our wonderful view!

Cumbria Tourism Superior Quality Award
Cumbria Tourism Awards Night 2018
What an incredible evening we had! Brilliant sunshine and magical Cumbrian scenery on the way to Cartmel, travelling down an almost empty M6. Then, a huge marquee seething with over 400 excited people in evening dress, dinner suits, black ties and a few kilts, too, all having a wonderful time sipping prosecco and chatting animatedly - what an atmosphere!
Beautifully decorated tables with twinkling lights - just being able to take part in this event in our first year as a B&B was an honour in itself ! Then we had the pleasure of sharing a table with the lovely people from the Wedding Venue " Broadoaks Country House" - Winners of their event, by the way, - and Smooth Radio Lake District, and, to top it all, it just happened to be Peter's birthday as well! For us to come second in the whole of Cumbria in the B&B of the Year Award is not anything we would have dreamed of when we opened our doors at the end of August last year. We are so grateful to the visitor who nominated and thus encouraged us to even apply - thank you unknown visitor! We are also grateful to CT and the Sponsors (The Cumberland) for making such an event possible and creating such a tremendous evening and, of course, we have already congratulated Raise View from Grasmere on winning and we wish them all the luck in the world when they go on to represent this wonderful county of Cumbria in the national competition next year.
We are pleased to inform you that we can now offer you gift vouchers so you can give your loved ones the wonderful surprise of a break in "Westwood - The B&B with a view" in the Western Lake District. Alternatively you can have the voucher made out to an amount which can then be used towards a stay in this special B&B. The expiry date is normally a year from the date of purchase. Please give us a ring or drop us a mail to find out more about this service:

Our wonderful logo hit the mark right from the beginning, as guests can admire the lovely old bridge that is part of our view, and then remember it through our logo - and all thanks to Alan Roper's skills as an artist and graphic designer.
