We stopped here on our way back from Scotland. Very warm welcome, luxurious bedroom and delicious breakfast. Set in a quiet village with wonderful views of the Eden Valley and Lake District, and a short walk to the local pub, the Black Swan, with excellent ale and food.

My wife and I stayed at Laurel House on our way home to Scotland. We last stayed there 6 years ago and we were pleased to see that the exceedingly high standards had never dropped. Alex and Jeff are one of the nicest couple you could meet, they made our stopover most pleasurable. The bed was very comfortable and the... More

Great welcome from Jeff and Alex, comp. tea and home made scones! Lovely room, stayed in "Willow", very clean, all facilities and very spacious bed. Brilliant local fare breakfast, leisurely pace and Culgaith is a lovely, quiet village. Very welcoming, friendly and no hesitation in recommending Laurel House to anyone.

We visited Laurel House on an overnight stay and were delighted to have found such a jewel. From the moment we were welcomed at the front door to the moment we were bid goodbye at the front door, the experience was heartwarming. It just did not seem like our hosts were running a business, but it did seem like we... More

Wow, what a find! Jeff and Alex are a wonderful couple who made us feel so welcome, even though we were late due to traffic! The whole environment was relaxing, the room was splendidly decorated and what a luxury not to have a poky bathroom! The fresh milk flask for our room was a fantastic touch and so welcome when...

My husband and I stayed for two nights at Laurel House during a weekend break for my birthday. The hosts Alex and Geoff could not have been more welcoming or helpful. The first night that we arrived, Geoff had booked us a table at the local pub which was most welcome. Upon learning that it was my birthday, Alex arrived... More

This is a wonderful place to stay. The hosts could not be more friendly,helpful and welcoming.They practice the true meaning of hospitality and we will certainly stay again.We returned from an evening out to discover hot water bottles in the bed which we thought was a very thoughtful touch.Breakfast was incredible, bring your appetites!

Well as soon as we arrived we were made to feel welcome and were spoilt rotten! Home made scones and tea on arrival (still warm!) complementary wine in the room. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean, well equipped with lovely toiletries and towels. The breakfast in the morning was to die for...... Everything fresh, locally sourced, homemade bread and... More
