Just a one night stay before we headed off to Langdale campsite. Really good location and off street secure parking. Darren was very welcoming and friendly. The room suited our needs for the one night, the bathroom was very clean and modern but we felt this made the bedroom feel a little dated, though it was well equipped, clean and... More

Very welcoming b&b. Spotlessly clean and comfortable. I am an awkward vegan and was pleasantly surprised to find a great selection of fruits at breakfast, not to mention soya milk provided especially for me!

Stayed for 2 nights, 1 in a double and 1 in a twin (our faults for adding an extra night some time after the original booking I hasten to add, no fault on the part of the hosts!). The twin was large and well appointed; the double quite a lot smaller but still with everything we could possibly need and... More

Just stayed at this charming B&B from Friday to Monday (May Bank Holiday 2013). Very comfortable bed and a great breakfast - The locally sourced Bacon and Black Pudding in particular - lovely croissant and home made preserves, quality coffee and well run by a nice and very hospitable couple. Would highly recommend and would also return in a heartbeat.... More
