My husband and i have just returned from the gatehouse. We loved it we stayed in the double king deluxe, smaller than the other rooms but still a large room with dressing table area. Breakfast was the best we have had in a b & b it was cooked to perfection. Bed was sooo comfy and room was so quiet,... More

Thank you so much for your kind review - we are so pleased you were so comfortable and happy with your room choice - our standard king-size double. Being on a floor to itself up in the eaves of the house, it is a cosy, quiet hideaway and we loved to read that you slept like a baby! Your comment... More

We stayed 2 nights and we couldn't find any faults at all. The owners were helpful and welcoming and our room was lovely. This B&B is very well run and a great location for exploring the lake district.

The first impression of the place was good, looked pretty OK location in a pretty little town. Once we arrived the Host greeted us at the door, after small formalities we were told 1 couple could stay downstairs and one couple needed to go upstairs. We decided to take the upstairs room, we had already been travelling from o/s for... More

It was obviously disappointing to read your review of your overnight stay with us in early October. The rooms you had chosen yourselves when booking online, were a king-size double en-suite on the first floor and a superking double en-suite on the ground floor. At the time of booking, three of our suites were available, which offer more space (and... More

Really blown away by our spacious beautiful room, the Victorian suit. Superb breakfast with plenty of thought gone into the choices and the relaxed not over bearing owners all made our two night stay an absolute pleasure. Worth every one of the five stars. Thank you, looking forward to a return visit already.

We really couldn't be happier to read your lovely review - and especially the title you gave it! It was great to know that you found the Victorian suite to be beautiful and your breakfast superb. We loved the fact that you found your stay a pleasure, but the pleasure is ours, and we hope you will return again soon.... More

We enjoyed a lovely midweek break at Storrs Gate House. Great location for catching the ferry and taking lakeside walks, and the best tastiest breakfast ever with homemade products being particularly tasty. Tip: Take a torch for the walk into Bowness in the evening if its winter as its quite a dark road initially.

It was really good to read that you enjoyed your midweek break here and that you rated your breakfast so highly - that was especially good to read as we have just been awarded a "Breakfast Award" by Visit Britain. We do supply torches, which are handy, as you say, for the short stretch of pavement without lights. We hope... More
