Kate & Barry were very accommodating as we stayed for the 'Great Swim', providing an early morning breakfast and taking our needs into account. The Guest House was very clean and comfortable with a relaxed atmosphere. The pool was a bonus and we enjoyed a quiet swim to unwind. I would highly recommend this guest house.

We were even accommodated by getting an early breakfast on the day of the swim.... More

First time in the Lake District. Excellent location, all restaurants and shops within walking distance. Nice large rooms, very clean, nice shower. A attractive indoor heated pool invites for a relaxing swim after a day of sightseeing. Friendly personal service.
