Came across this by chance, last minute on the night of. Looked legit on the outside, lovelier on the inside. Dawn was generous. Very welcoming and homely room- like a home away from home. Comfy bed, good tea and coffee, lovely bathroom. Best night so far on my backpacking holiday. Good value for money. Breakfast was great too

I booked a single room for a one night stay in order to attend friends' wedding. Due to the room rate I was expecting a box room but Room 1 is spacious, comfy and has lots of delightful extras. Great value for money. Feel so at home I could almost go to breakfast in PJs! I don't want to leave... More

DIanne manages to make you feel at home and relaxed after I had completed walking the Dales Way. Cosy, warm bed in modern clean room. Full english breakfast to see me on m way. Nothing is to much trouble minding my heavy case while touring. Thank you..

Me and my partner only stayed for one night unfortunately as we would of loved to stay for much longer! As we walked in the first thing that struck us was the smell, it smelt gorgous! I actually asked diane what candles she buys as I want one! The guest lodge is beautifully decorated all over, our room was on... More

The owner nicely upgraded our room once it became apparent that my husband would bump his head in our teeny 3rd floor space reached by increasingly narrow and steep stairs. Convenient on site parking. Very small bathroom even in better room.

Had a short break away to Windermere and stayed at the Holly Lodge. It was everything we expected it to be and a brilliant base. Dianne, the owner (she also runs it on her own!), was extremely pleasant and really friendly and up for a chat. We stayed in a deluxe double room which was decorated beautifully and had everything...

This was a lovely b&b. ideal location, only a couple of minutes drive to bowness centre ( taxi £3.50, cheap enough). after reading some reviews AFTER booking, we were a little worried about the distribution warehouse down the street, but we had a room on the front of the b&b and didn't hear a thing, so that shouldn't be something...
