Second time staying here and everything was as good as I remembered it was. Comfortable beds, nice rooms, bathroom was absolutely spotless and cleanliness seems to be a very high priority at this establishment. I think the Hotel Inspector (Alex polizzi) would have trouble finding fault with this place. The house is always warm and staff welcoming and helpful. Breakfast... More

we found this guest house on late rooms.com, we have never stayed in the lake district before and wanted somewhere close to the town center to explore, only two minutes from the train station if you don't fancy the drive up but very easy to find if you do drive, off road parking for guests which was ample at the...

Checking in was lovely. Kate was really friendly and even had warm homemade ready for us. Go and put the kettle on and I'll bring some to your room said Kate. What more of a welcome could you ask for! The B&B even house it's own pool another plus. The room was small and spotlessly clean. Breakfast again was fantastic... More

First night was blissfully quiet. Very positive impression of place and owners. Second night and morning was somewhat marred by a larger party of folk comprising youngish children celebrating a birthday. Undermined the peace and quiet somewhat.

We have just spent the night here. We arrived a little early due to the rain but were allowed in to drop our bags. Then we were given a brief tour and stayed for a coffee in the lounge. The room (number 2) was a classic double. The bed was comfortable and we both had a good night’s sleep. There... More

What makes this place stand out from the rest is the charming people. From the friendly greeting on arrival to the cake recipe on departure, everything about this hotel was about being made to feel welcome. The room was excellent and spotless. The pool was warm and clean. The breakfast was plentiful and delivered with characteristic cheerfulness. We couldn't fault... More
