We were warmly welcomed by Henry and Anna Howard and given a very spacious and comfortable "suite" in this wonderful house (Wolsey Lodge). Henry cooked an excellent dinner which we shared with them. Excellent breakfast with their home produced sausages and bacon. They were very noble to have us to stay as Cumbria has just experienced the worst ever storm... More

My husband and I had 2 nights at Johnby in October and thought it was great. We had a lovely large bedroom that had its own sitting room too. We enjoyed strolling round the property before a great breakfast and enjoyed discovering the pigs and the free range chickens. I would recommend that you book the optional evening dinner. It...

Lovely tree shrouded location and fabulous to have private access to such a historic building. Delightful owners (do follow the invitation to bring your own wine as there is no liquor license). Henry & Anna were excellent hosts (despite probably having to field the same set of questions on the building and family history from countless sets of guests!). Main... More

Johnby Hall was a very convenient and comfortable stopover on the way to Scotland. We stayed in the Studio which was more like a self- contained property with a sitting room downstairs and a bedroom upstairs. There was a piano for music lovers and loads of information about the local area. Breakfast was delicious and served in the great hall... More

My daughter and i stayed in the studio. We both loved it. It was very comfortable and homely. The breakfast in the "great hall" was delicious and the family who run Johnby Hall were very welcoming. The Hall is located in wonderful countryside providing a real break away from it all.

We stayed at Johnby Hall on a Sunday night in early June 2015. Our room was the Studio, which is a cottage, previously converted to an artist's studio, with a large sitting room, large bedroom, and bathroom with bath, shower and a great oaken throne (an additional/ more powerful light in the bathroom would improve the room). There are lots... More

We have stayed at Johnby Hall for four consecutive years on our way from Surrey to Scotland, taking both rooms. Not only is it well-situated, near the M6 and Lake District, but it is a truly fabulous place - wonderful setting, wonderful gardens, wonderful rooms and wonderful hospitality. Henry and Anna and children are welcoming, friendly and relaxed. The rooms... More

We loved staying here. We were in the Kelly suite which is made up of a large bedroom, a decent-sized sitting room and a separate toilet and bathroom. We would not describe Johnby Hall as 'luxury' as the Wolsey Lodges website implies; its attractions are that it is historic, romantic and welcoming. Also, staying in the Kelly Suite is like... More

This, as others have written, is a beautiful place to stay. The main house and our accommodation - we stayed in The Kelly Suite - oozed historical charm. We were lucky to have very pleasant weather and this showed just how special the place clearly is. Henry, Anna, the lovely kids and caretaker were very welcoming - tea, cakes and... More
