We absolutely loved our stay at Crosthwaite House. We were warmly welcomed by Sam. The rooms are gorgeous, the breakfast scrumptious, the treats at the front door delicious and the view breathtaking. We went to Lake Windermere for the day and had ordered a packed lunch to take - it was great. Amazingly beautiful and peaceful surroundings. We would definitely... More

We had been booked into the nearby Brown Horse at Winster but to cut a long story short there was a problem with the room due to drains resulting in us being moved at 11pm. Big thanks to the Crosthwaite House!! A truly lucky find. The room was spotlessly clean and quiet and the Breakfast was of a high standard... More

We spent almost a week there in July and it was so relaxing. The view from our bedroom window was amazing. They are a lovely family that run the B&B and the small touches such as homemade cake left each day add to a very pleasant stay.

This B&B was our accomodation base for a day out on lake Winderemere - it was perfect. The views were great and the rooms were clean and spacious. The breakfast was enjoyed by all of our party - especially the variety of a 'daily special'. Sam ( the owner) could not have done more for us from the moment we... More

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
