Excellent location one minute walk from village centre and free parking at the rear. Comfortable room with four poster bed and had all I needed if not a little compact but was clean and had constant hot water. Was a little chilly at night but the room had an extra heater that came in handy but this is the depth... More

Darren and Roz laid on fun and games and a super buffet for guests which went on to the early hours. We have stayed at the Ivy Guest House before and have always had a... More

Lovely, clean, quiet guest house. Stayed for 2 nights between Christmas and New Year. Room 1, massive bed and beautiful slipper bath. Would recommend dining at the Queens Hotel or the Sun. Top tip: book a table in advance, we did. was so glad as both nights everywhere we went was full and diners were being turned away. Very difficult... More

We loved our stay at the Ivy Guest House. So welcoming on arrival and looked after us from start to finish. Lovely room with four poster bed which was very comfy, and all the little added touches just made it that bit more special. Breakfast was delicious, and they made sure we had everything we needed. They were on hand... More

We spent two nights at Ivy Guest House and found it to be very comfortable. We had a king sized bed and everything we needed in our room as well as the optional use of a lounge. The breakfast was ample and porridge was made for me on request. Darren and Roz were very welcoming. Despite being two minutes from... More

We planned to stay for three nights,but had to cut back to two - both sides of our families had chosen to stay self catering for a whole week in the Lakes - we spent a day with each. Ivy House was the perfect bolt hole in between. Comfortable bed,warm welcome. Splendid breakfast with some of the best bacon we... More

In historic village with good local pubs we had a lovely warm welcome from Darren, Roz and Heather. A comfortable lounge for residents with plenty books and videos. The bedroom was small but very comfortable and clean with a four poster bed.

My husband and I stayed here one night. The place was a little dated (wallpaper and some fixtures and fittings could do with modernising, and the stuffed teddies were a bit twee for us) but was immaculately clean and the staff were wonderful. We would stay here again based on our experience. The only thing I would change next time... More
