My husband and 13yr old son stayed here after visiting center parcs over half term. We stayed in a triple room which was bright, airy and immaculately clean. Huge fluffy white towels and hot chocolate for my son were very welcome. The room was very quiet with beautiful open views over the countryside. There is a well stocked mini library... More

Nothing was too much trouble. She was so warm and welcoming offering loads of local knowledge and advice on where to go to enjoy... More

We stayed here for a few days after our daughter's wedding. We were warmly welcomed by Helen the proprietor who did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable. Our room in the hotel was sunny, bright and spotlessly clean. It was very comfortable as well as spacious, and we enjoyed relaxing views of the surrounding countryside from our bay window... More

The White House is a convenient location for walking the eastern fells. The accommodation is what you would hope to find; a comfortable bed, adequately sized room that was well stocked with tea making facilities, a TV. The breakfasts were excellent and the George and Dragon Pub, a few minutes walk away, served delicious evening meals. Helen, the proprietor, offered... More

The White House is clean and nicely decorated, good views, comfortable beds with nice bed linen. Not too far off motorway so would seem an ideal location for an overnight stop-over going between England / Scotland. The room we stayed in only had one wooden folding chair for sitting on which was located in a wardrobe. There is a guest... More

I chose " the White House" because it appealed more than other places I had considered in this area. Though I only stayed one night, it is clear that Helen has provided a relaxed and comfortable environment here-detail about local facilities (such as pubs & restaurants) was provided in a way which made me feel as welcome as if I...

During our two day stay in the Lake District, we stayed in this very nice B&B and were well pleased. Helen greeted us warmly and was so helpful about directions to the places we wanted to visit. She even loaned us her personal map of the area to be sure we didn't lose our way. Our room was simple but... More

This was our first family trip to the area but we will definitely return. The white house is in a great location for getting around the Lake district. The bedroom was large, clean and best of all had a really comfy bed. Our daughter loved the view of grazing cows and hopping bunny rabbits. Helen made us feel really welcome... More
