En-route to the mountains, a great stop over; warm, comfortable with good facilities and friendly owners. Town centre location means you have access to pubs, restaurants and cinema all you could need for an evening in northern lakeland.

Just checked in....fantastic room and lovely comfy bed. Well located within easy walking distance of the town centre with plenty of restaurants and pubs nearby. Also within walking distance of a major supermarket for any forgotten essentials. Looking firward to a good night out and in, and the highly recommended breakfast.

Clearly Sam and Ian take great pride in what they do, the whole place was immaculate. My husband had the full cooked breakfast and I tried the omelette, both were absolutely excellent. We loved the extra effort that has gone into the place from the optional bathmat in the room to the homemade goodies at breakfast (great muesli by the... More

What a surprise this place was, booked it as it seemed a fair place with good reviews but what we found was much more than that, great room and facilities, little touches like bottles of spring water in the room and very pleasant hosts plus a great breakfast

This is one of the nicest B&Bs I have stayed in. My room was really cosy with a good en suite and I particularly appreciated the high quality of the bed linen - I didn't want to get out of bed in the morning! The location was great too, within walking distance of the town centre and close to the... More

A party of us have just spent 3 days with Ian & Samantha, nothing we asked was too much trouble, especially the late cancellation of one of our group. Great stay and looking forward to next year already. Thanks and good luck Guys`

Sweet little B&B in a very convenient part of town near to all the amenities. Breakfast was excellent especially the freshly squeezed orange juice and choice of vegetarian full English. Room was airy. All in all a very pleasant stay would recommend.

Nice place, or at least it was when we last stayed there, but don't book a year in advance in person like we did. They actually wrote the booking down when we were there then claimed they didn't have it 3 days before we were due to arrive. Impossible to find alternative accommodation in Penrith itself for 6 mature golfers... More

samantha s, Owner at Abbey House, responded to this review

Thanks for this review. You made a provisional booking, this was never confirmed. Neither yourself nor us has a confirmation email and therefore you were not booked in. You called two days before you thought you were staying, this is not the time to check if you are booked in. We take many booking a year in advance, most are... More
