We stayed at the Fat Lamb having bought an Amazon deal for £100 two nights B&B. The setting is beautiful and the surrounding area is scenic however the Fat Lamb stands alone, The place itself has a charming bar and beer garden and the staff, especially Dawn were friendly. We were allocated room 2 which was clean and tidy but... More

We stayed here in June with our dog and it was lovely to be able to go somewhere so dog friendly. I was a bit disappointed at the small size of our room (6) as the holiday itself was quite expensive for the four nights we stayed but the bed was very comfy. The breakfasts, even though they were the... More

Whilst riding out on a sunny evening we happened upon the fat lamb & called in for a brew but stayed for a meal, tempted by the proper grub on the menu. The building is really old & not fiddled about with so lots of lovely features, old style formal dining room, residents lounge & bar area. Out back is... More

Really enjoyed our one night stay at the Fat Lamb. Room we were allocated on ground floor was spacious, having single as well as double bed. Bed extremely comfortable enabling a great night's sleep! Had a delicious meal (selected from a very varied menu) in the bar area, which had a warm, relaxed atmosphere. Although there were a lot of... More

Food were lovely but pricey. Bought it on Amazon and our room was very tiny but it's ok. Yes, its in the middle of nowhere and if you are looking for tranquillity then its the place... Will recommend it, very peaceful...

Really I'd like to give a score of 2.5 - 2 feels a bit too harsh but I really don't think this B&B deserves a full 3/5. Where shall I begin? To be fair, The Fat Lamb is set in a very beautiful location - amazing views with as many miles of sheep as there are hills. The building is... More

Went today for Fathers Day. Food was really good, waiting staff pleasant. Unfortunately as we were leaving, I passed comment to the lady who may have been the owner ( older and not dressed like the waiting staff ) about a film that was shot here with Lenny Henry. She was down right unpleasant and informed me there had never... More

Good base from which to explore from. Fat Lamb is a lovely hotel with lots of character, rooms very clean with everything you need. Food excellent, you can either eat in the restaurant or in the pub. All the staff are very friendly. Ideal for a short break to get some good clean air and wonderful views.
