Lovely guest house, we had the family room for 6 nights, there is ample space in the room and it is spotlessly clean. Freshly baked delicious chocolate brownies daily to go with the tea and coffee in the room. Oh and fresh fruit. If you book in over the weekend, make sure you book in for dinner in advance as...

My husband and I were booked into this B&B through Trailbrakes as one of our stop off points along the Coast to Coast cycle route. We were delighted with our room which was spotless, bright and airy with a fantastic bathroom - the bed was really comfy and there were lovely brownies and fruit left in the room which we... More

We were sent here when our hotel bumped our reservation at nearly 2200. We arrived at this late hour-grumpy, tired and bedraggled- to a warm welcome and super nice room with brownies and fruit waiting for us. We enjoyed a generous and delicious breakfast and were sent back on our way feeling much refreshed- and feeling lucky that, after such... More

I stayed for one night only in this lovely B+B. I can honestly say that I have never stayed anywhere so comfortable, with so many extra touches in the room for comfort. The breakfast was top quality. I will most certainly stay again when I am in the area.

We have been trying to book dinner for a while now but eventually had dinner there this weekend and it was a treat and well worth the wait. The service was perfect in timing. The menu was small but perfect and very good value for money. Being able yo take your own wine keeps the cost down.each course was delicious... More

Stayed here for one night as Penrith was the most central destination for a girls reunion. I chose this Bed and Breakfast as it had great reviews and boy were they right! The welcome was friendly and efficient and we were shown to our lovely rooms. They were all tastefully decorated, clean and comfortable. We had fruit in each room... More

Stayed for the weekend for a nearby wedding, needing fridge space for baking and assistance with some printing of the speech for the wedding, the owners were only too happy to help. It was a very comfortable stay, very clean and fresh everywhere. Breakfast was first class. Amazing stay, would not hesitate to return.

Stayed two nights for my sister's Hen Party which I arranged with Susan (owner) in advance. Susan was very accomodating and welcoming and saw to our every need and request from making the booking right up until we checked out. The entire place is immaculate, clean and well presented. Attention to detail is first class. I have stayed in many... More

Just returned from a two night stay here at Easter weekend for a hen do. We had exclusive use of the b&b. The rooms are all spotlessly clean as are the bathrooms. The cooked breakfast was served hot with not a hint of grease and was made to order the sausages were the nicest I've had in a long time.... More
