Owners are so friendly and the location is fantastic. We had room 2 with lovely views over the fields, there was a window seat to read and listen to the sound of silence. I can't remember when I slept so well. The breakfast was amazing and after eating at 0830 we didn't eat again until 1900!! Pub next door with... More

We arrived on a very cold rainy day and what a welcomed sight this place was. Warm, comfy with a fire in the fireplace and a pot of tea. This place is just in front of Hilltop House and was featured in some of Beatrix Potter's illustrations. We had a wonderful stay here and didn't want to leave. The Kirby's... More

My wife, 5 year old son and I stayed here for 2 nights in August 2012. The house itself is just a few steps away from Beatrix Potter's "Hilltop House" - a hugely famous attraction for fans of Peter Rabbit and co. - and was itself featured in some of her stories. Our room was very confortable and spotlessly clean;... More

It's difficult to add to the accolades that abound for Buckle Yeat which we totally agree with but one thing I can add, is that the breakfast is second to none. Its very rare to find food that has been sourced with the enjoyment of the guest in mind rather than profit. Helen and Robert have clearly put quality before... More

If you're looking for a great location, a great b&b, a very warm welcome & spotlessly clean accommodation, look no further than Buckle Yeat. We found this via an internet search for a short 4 day break and i can't speak highly enough of Buckle Yeat . We've had a great break & didn't want to leave. Great breakfasts &... More

My friend & I stayed here for a weekend from 13th-15th July 2012. Quite simply, one of the best B&B's we've stayed in. Helen & Robert are wonderful hosts - nothing is too much trouble and their house is a beautiful cumbrian cottage with comfy beds, lovely crisp white bed linen and one of the best English Breakfasts we've tasted,...

The b and b has great walks, long and short, from the front door, and a friendly pub serving great food right next door. Our dogs were welcome to stay and the hosts made us a wonderful breakfast. wifi access in the dining room was a great bonus. Our room was small and fairly basic but spotlessly clean with a... More

Even if you have no interest in Beatrix, this is an outstanding place to stay in the district if you want quiet beauty. We loved the rural nature -- no noisy cars, people, city clatter. Beautiful view in a great area for evening strolls. Staff are excellent and the food was very good. Will go back as often as we... More

We loved staying in this b&b. The house was lovely and the breakfasts were delicious! We'd got stuck in extremely bad traffic on the way up and had to contact the owner about the delay. He was very accommodating and waited up for us to arrive. There is a living area with a log fire, which was a great place... More
