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

We have stayed at many Wolsey Lodges and were disappointed by this property. We felt the description on the website hugely overstated the reality. While Anna and Henry were friendly, from the general chaos and lack of organisation, we had the impression they had taken on too much and couldn't give the necessary time and attention to guests or the...

We recently stayed at Johnby Hall for a weekend break and fell in love with the place immediately. Johnby is a stunning property in a wonderful location, the B&B accommodation was perfect and was filled with beautiful pieces of furniture including the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in and lovely little details; freshly picked flowers from the garden,...

I stayed at Johnby en route to Scotland along with two couples, one of whom was travelling back from Scotland, having also stayed at Johnby on their way up to Scotland. Henry and Anna were really welcoming hosts and supper felt very much like a dinner party; the food was also very tasty. Johnby is a very relaxing and tranquil... More

We found this B&B on a 'dog friendly' website and booked in for one night. It was the perfect place for us and we stayed for 4 nights not venturing further north as originally intended! Our hosts Henry, Anna and the children are delightful and made us feel very welcome. It is in a perfect spot for a tranquil relaxing... More

We stayed at Johnby Hall for 2 nights and we had a fantastic stay. The grounds are lovely, the welcome you receive very warm and the accommodation (we stayed in The Studio) was great - it felt homely as soon as you walked in the door. We ate with Henry and other guests on the first night in the main... More

We were made to feel most welcome for our 2 night stay. spent lots of time in the wood making dens and look forward to coming back and seeing garden in full bloom. Grand breakfast in the main house and chocolate bunnies for the kids so thoughtful. Very comfy bed and bedding often a rarity xxxxx
