We suspect that Rowan may have been a drill-sergeant or headmaster in a previous life. Everything about this set up implies that the guests are an unwelcome addition to Link House. We had the most frosty greeting we've ever had to any hotel, anywhere in the world and we travel a lot with our jobs. There is repeated mention of... More

I've stayed at Link House on two occasions in recent years. The house is well located with splendid views of surrounding hills. The bus to Cockermouth in one direction and Keswick in the other, stops right outside, so arriving and touring by car is not essential. We managed a circular tour via Keswick, Coniston, Ulverston, Barrow and Workington all by... More

I just needed a stopover on the way north, and arrived weary after 4 hours hard driving. I was offered a welcome tray of tea and shown to a nice warm room. All the furnishings and bathroom were new and spotless, and even a Hairdryer and adequate mirrors! Plenty leaflets about where a tourist could visit, and maps and light... More

8 of us stayed for 3 nights at Link House and we loved it. Rowan was very helpful when I initially booked and we were all pleased with our accommodation. Spotlessly clean and nicely decorated rooms. Room 7 (twin) had a lovely en-suite bathroom with both bath and shower. Lovely breakfast each morning, and our host was so friendly and... More

On arrival the owner Rowan was very pleasant, showed me around and let us check in early and drop off bags. I pre ordered breakfast for the next morning... More

Link house is a lovely bed and breakfast with fantastic views and a very friendly host (Rowan). We were in room 1 where we could see the mountains and had a nice view of the new born lambs in the field next door. The room was clean and very comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. Well worth a visit.

I was working up at lakes distillery and needed a place to stay. This is literally a stones throw away. Lovely house, nice rooms and excellent service. Plenty of parking at the rear. Very close to an excellent pub that serves top notch food. Thanks again Rowan

We stayed at Link House for the weekend 28th & 29th November 2014. We were very impressed with the standard of occommodation/service provided by the owner of the property. Our room was very comfortable. Our room was at the frond of the house which meant that we could hear some traffic noise on the adjacent A66. Rooms to the rear... More
