Great place. Simon cannot do enough for you. We (my girlfriend and I) had our rather demanding Doberman with us who would just create if we left her in our room during breaky so we planned to have breaky separately.

We only stayed one night on our way through the Lake District. We were a little flustered at first trying to figure out where the parking was at first but once we managed to reverse up the steep grade and park and then get into our room we were much more relaxed. The rooms were very comfortable, pleasant and clean.... More

A very nice place to stay. The location was right on the center of the village with shops and restaurants all around it We had a family room that was beautifully decorated. The breakfast was also good.

Really great B&B and in a superb location, right on the high street in the centre of the village. Breakfast was excellent, the owners really helpful and welcoming. Only thing that could improve it would be to have WiFi available throughout.
