Very nice stay, excellent breakfast. Comfy beds. The lady let us into our room early and was very accommodating. Plenty of room for parking and lots of storage. If you aren't from the area taxis are very expensive! From a wedding at Askham Hall it was £30 back.

We wanted to have a family getaway for Christmas 2014 and were pleased to have stayed at the Whitehouse in Clifton for Christmas and Boxing day. Helen, the landlady was pleasant and welcoming and we were lucky to be the only guests with access to the warm living room downstairs. The accomodation was of high quality with a beautiful view...

We stayed overnight as a last minute break which my husband booked. We were made very welcome by Helen. Our room was really clean with a nice selection of toiletries . Breakfast was excellent. It was only a few miles from Pooley Bridge which is the top end of Ullswater, so the lakes are easily accessible. We would definitely stay... More

We have recently spent, a super four nights at The White House, Bed & Breakfast at Clifton on the outskirts of Penrith, Cumbria. The house built in the 1700's is so well situated, for travelling to Scotland or for a trip around the beautiful Lake District. The village of Clifton is quite small, but has plenty of short drives to... More

Helen made provision for our arrival out of hours and all was ready for us after a long flight. Breakfast was delicious and we think Helen deserves the title First Lady. The facilities were very comfortable and restful.

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

My partner and I stayed here over the Easter weekend and we were blown away with the facilities and service we received. Helen went out of her way to ensure that we were taken care of. 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
