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

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.
