My family and I spent two nights here from 4-6th July. We absolutely loved our stay and we will definately be returning! From start to finish the stay was faultless - from the scrumptious freshly baked cakes left out all day (my husband's favourite bit) to the gorgeous rooms with a 5 star view. The B & B has a... More

Stunning view from the house, all the rooms are clean, large and airy. Lovely attention to detail in the decoration and food was delicious (we particularly liked the yogurt and granola pots and the little cake treats by the door). Sam and Tiree are wonderful hosts, very friendly and helpful. The road to Crosthwaite from Kendal is a bit tricky... More

Sam and Tiree have one of the best B&B`s you could want to stay in. A lovely big room, and lots of home baked goodies to sample. After a long day`s walk sheer bliss. We had a super breakfast with alternatives for vegetarians.

This review is long overdue! We stayed at the beautiful Crosthwaite house last August for two nights with our 8 month old daughter. We booked reasonably last minute and found that Sam and Tiree couldn't do enough to accommodate our travel plans (arriving after 9pm at night). We also really liked the warm welcome given to our daughter having found... More

This is a truly special B and B. You can tell a lot of hard work has gone into the running of the house. It's perfect for those looking for a relax away from everything, to walkers looking for somewhere to stop for the night. From the moment we arrived we were given a very cheerful and warm welcome from... More

Really enjoyed our stay here. Crosthwaite is a lovely, little village just outside the main tourist trail (but only a short drive away from great fell walks). Crosthwaite House is beautiful, our room was great and impeccably clean. We loved the lounge (especially the lights and fire in an evening), mini cakes/nibbles in the hall were an extra treat.

With a big family party we stayed in this B&B for a wedding. It was great, we were made to feel so welcome. The little extra touches such as fresh flowers and home bakes just showed how much this family cared about making strangers feel at home in their beautiful house. We really were made to feel special for the... More

The Dawsons never fail to make our stay at Crosthwaite House perfect. So easy to book, so friendly, always happy to help us plan our walks... Pubs to eat at... Villages to visit. Can't wait to go back.

I have stayed at Crosthwaite twice now, and am planning a return trip in the near future. I can honestly say this is the nicest guesthouse I've ever stayed at. The first time I stayed, my Mum and I arrived quite late at night. This was no problem for Sam and Tiree, in fact when we got to Crosthwaite, tired... More
