Very neat, tidy and well kept place. The hosts were very polite. The room were quite spacious and had a nice view of the hills. Tea and coffee were available in the room. The room became a bit cold during the night but duvet was enough to overcome that. :)

Stayed for two nights whilst walking in the lakes, clean, quiet, comfortable beds, hot shower and an excellent breakfast, what's not to like. Owner has parking pass for £1 per day, bargain. Great position for town, easy walk to shops, restaurants and pubs. I'll be back.

My partner and I slept really well in a very comfortable bed and thoroughly enjoyed the award winning breakfast. The location of this spot is superb,... More
