This B&B has had a lot of investment and the rooms are clean and modern. The breakfast is cooked well but service is haphazard with selected items missing from the plate despite the proprietor writing things down. Cereal provided and limited fresh fruit, plenty of filter coffee (help yourself). Felt welcomed by the male proprietor but the customer experience could... More

Nice room, nice breakfast, nice people run it. Plenty of car parking. Access to the Lake district, North Pennines. A66, A686, M6 etc. Good location, about 10 minute walk to Penrith centre, but the road outside is noisy.

Lovely place to stay. Our hosts were vey accommodating and friendly. The guesthouse was super clean and comfortable and our hosts made every effort to accommodate every need. The guesthouse is just a stone's throw from the town centre and we easily found our way around. It is only 6 minutes from Ullswater and 26 miles from Gretna so a... More

The hotel was well positioned for a first night on the C2C route. There was adeqaute parking to the rear for our 2 minibus support vans and our 10 bikes fitted into the rear hall way from the car park. Rooms were clean and comfortable and quiet, with modern en suite facilities. Great breakfast set us up for the day... More

We stayed there on our first night of the C2C challenge. We were a party of 11 and arrived late. Nick and Karen were very understanding and accommodating. They were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The bikes were locked away securely and the van parked safely at the back of the property. We had stayed at the Acorn... More

We stopped here whilst competing the c2c, and this place is right on the route. Room was very nice and clean, modern bathroom and had a huge TV. The bikes were locked away nice, safe and dry for us. My only issue was that we asked for breakfast before 8am and we were told it was not possible, but then... More

Stayed here on a C2C cycling trip, the owners were friendly and accommodating and went out of their way to help make it a relaxing and complication-free stay for me. They make a great breakfast too. Thanks again!

We arrived late, Nick welcomed us in and got our bikes put away, nothing was too much trouble. Lovely clean, comfortable rooms and an excellent breakfast. Highly recommended whether you're cycling or just visiting the area.

I booked here as part of my cycling adventure. I got delayed due to mechanical problems and did not arrive until the early hours. The Owner waited up and let me in with no problem, despite him needing to get and make all the breakfasts. Location. rooms, food and everything else about Acorn was superb. Book here with 100% confidence... More
