Positive Reviews

Excellent hosts

Keith and Wendy are highly regarded by their guests for their warm welcome and excellent local knowledge. They're always happy to chat to their guests and nothing is too much trouble. If you want advice on the best walks, bike rides, drives and places to eat in the area they have no end of recommendations. They really put the heart into this guesthouse and visitors have nothing but kind words to say about them.

Homely, clean rooms with special touches

The rooms are spacious and well decorated as well as always being immaculately clean. Guests love the king size beds which give an incredibly comfortable night's sleep but what really makes people feel at home are the little touches, including tea and biscuits, wine glasses and corkscrews and some resident teddy bears.

Delicious home cooked breakfasts

Guests love the breakfast at this hotel. A great variety of fresh food is cooked every morning and served along with fruit juices, tea and coffee. The kitchens offer such an excellent start to a day walking through the hills of the Lake District that you might not be able to find room for lunch!
