What a lovely place to stop over for a couple of nights, on our way to Scotland. We booked a family room for three adults, most difficult to find but this bed and breakfast fitted our criteria most beautifully. Love the healthy choices from the breakast menu. I enjoyed both the bowl of fruit and home prepared yoghurt as well... More

We stayed for one night with a friend when visiting Lake District. The room was clean and lovely. Really well situated not too far from the bus/train station and city centre. The lady was helpful and the breakfast was huge!

Loved our one night stay in Kendal. Easy access to town and Lake District. Lovely decor and spacious comfortable room. Hosts very eager to please and friendly. Locals very chatty and seem to like Aussies!! Breakfast tasty and delivered to your room. Friendly and quaint town with some great shops. We hope to be back one day.

School House was our refuge at the end of our longest day walking the Dales Way, and what a refuge it was. We were only just through the door when our boots were whisked away to be dried (and warmed - ahhh!) and the room was lovely (beautiful decoration and touches) with a great bathroom. Not come across breakfast in... More

We chose the School House because of positive reviews by others, and clearly all those other people were right. There is little to add to what has already been said. The room was immaculate, the bed(s) super-comfy, and the idea of having breakfast served in the room, on a nifty little table, was surprisingly good. The breakfast ordering service was... More

This b&b has everything--comfortable rooms, delicious breakfasts, lovely location and a friendly and helpful proprietor. It is very conveniently located to all public transit. I would highly recommend.

I only stayed one night on a stop over during a Charity Bike Ride. Lovely B&B, very clean, lovely room, great night's sleep and Heidi and Dave were very welcoming. Breakfast served in my room was fabulous. Would stay again for longer if the need arises.
