Enjoyed another wonderful stay at Dunmail House - our second this year and have been staying there for many years. We really would not stay anywhere else in the Lakes.

Had another superb stay at Dunmail House. A really, clean, comfortable night's rest and the breakfasts are the best! Nothing is left wanting and Shirley and Tony are a mine of information about the area. Glad to see that some things don't change - only for the better.

We really enjoyed our stay with Tony & Shirley in their lovely B&B. Tony's breakfasts each morning were a delicious and filling treat. Their good humour was entertaining and their information about the local area very helpful. The views of the hills from the B&B are beautiful and its proximity to Grasmere very handy. Grasmere itself is a delightful village... More

Dunmail house is a little treasure! Shirley & Tony are just the perfect hosts. As a gluten avoider, they were very accommodating - I didn't need to provide any of my own bread or oats, which is normally the case when on hols. Shirley even baked a gluten free cake for me to try! It was delicious! The rooms are... More
