Stayed here with 2 friends whilst Dorothy was looking after Dunmail house, she was great and offered us another room at a very reasonable rate, which in hindsight was really good value. Great location and great B&B, clean, homely and good quality breakfasts. Will definitely return here as first choice if I am ever in the region.

Great location - just on edge of lovely Grasmere and central for access to wider Lakes. Shirley and Tony were fantastic hosts - it felt like their home was ours for our extended weekend. We were sorry to leave.

If you are looking for a comfortable base,warm welcome, top breakfast and walking that ranges from retail therapy to serious hills; this place has it all - without having to drive while your are there. Tony and Shirley will even look after your very wet boots after a Lakeland downpour!

Tony was even found on his back under a residents car fixing it for her return journey- now that's a service for... More
