My friend and I stayed at High Wray with her little boy in April and we were very impressed. There is a lovely sitting room which can be used by visitor as well as a beautiful garden. The decoration was tasteful and everything was clean and tidy. Sheila was on hand for any advise on places to eat and walks... More

I stayed with a friend in the twin room and we simply had a wonderful stay. Sheila is a very welcoming host who makes you feel right at home with the help of Pippin the cat. Nice bedding, you can place your suitcases under the beds. The door of the twin room does not have a key, but it is... More

This B&B does the basics really well. The beds are good, the breakfasts are excellent, there is enough hot water and the location is superb. However, Sheila who runs the place goes an extra mile or two in providing afternoon tea and cake (what more could you ask for after a hard day on the fells), and a glass of... More

Just visited High Wray Farm again and had the most fantastic four day break anyone could wish for. Every afternoon after returning from the fells, there was fire lit, friendly cat (Pippin) there to welcome us along with tea and home made shortbread. Also, this visit coincided with lambing time at the farm and Sheila's husband Chris was more than... More

Shelia runs this B&B as if she were inviting you into her home....cos she is really. There's a warm welcome, the lounge is kept warm with the wood burner and is for guest use exclusively, with drip tray, drying room and rack for muddy boots and coats not far away. Her freshly cooked breakfast is to rival anywhere and starts... More

After a six hour journey, we arrived to a warm welcome from Sheila and some of her lovely homemade cake. Our room was very comfortable and clean and the jar of homemade shortbread, which was so yummy, was difficult to resist. Unfortunately, both of us had been under the weather for a few days before we arrived, so our appetites... More

What an absolute pleasure to stay in this beautifully clean and well appointed cottage with the most amazing views. Comfortable, warm and welcoming. We found home made lemon drizzle cake and tea/coffee/milk on arrival. The underfloor heating was a real bonus, and the beds were blissful. Really can't think of anything that could be improved. Lovely walks from the doorstep,... More

We stayed in the cottage attached to the B and B for two nights and what a treat it was. Fantastic accommodation with breathtaking views from the windows towards the fells. If only we could have stayed longer. Many thanks to Sheila for allowing us to stay, we hope you are feeling better. We couldn't have asked for anything else,... More
