My husband and I stayed at Laurel House in February while in the area for a wedding in Penrith and had an amazing stay. Jeff and Alex and their lovely dogs are fantastic hosts who made us very welcome in their home. Our bedroom was beautifully decorated, with a large bed, wardrobe, writing desk, coffee and tea facilities, large bright... More

Jeff and Alex couldn't have made us more welcome. Amazingly comfortable bed and a great breakfast made it a place we will definitely return to on our spa break weekends. Really convenient for Whinfell and our new favourite after trying a few others in the area. Many thanks. Steve and Sarah

My and partner and I spent valentines night at Laurel House and the only down side was that we couldn't stay longer! The thing that makes this place stand out is the hospitality, it truly was like a home from home and Jeff and Alex made us feel so welcome from the moment we arrived. My partner spoke with Alex...

Jeff and Alex went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. On a gray day that made a hike in the Lake District seem unappealing, they pointed us to a great spot on Hadrian's Wall and packed us a picnic bag with snacks and a warm thermos of hot chocolate. Our room was very spacious and comfortable, breakfasts were... More

Warm welcome from the owners Jeff & Alex with tea & coffee and homemade scones. Stayed in the Rowan room which was large with a very large bed and big bathroom. Bed very comfortable. Breakfast the best we've ever had and plenty of it. The hosts are very attentive and can't do enough for you, advising on the places to... More

This was our second visit to Laurel House. This is a beautiful house with a real homely feel to it. The accomodation is spacious, very comfortable and has higher quality faciltiies than you would expect for a B&B. The hosts are incredibly informative/ knowledgable about Cumbria, and their superb hosting skills make your feel comfortable and relaxed. Nothing is to... More

A very warm welcome from Jeff and Alex, and a very relaxing overnight stop close to the M6. One of the best breakfasts I've ever had, including home-made bread & jam. Thoroughly recommended. They don't do evening meals, but the Black Swan up the road does great food and beer.
