Spent two nights at the Ravensworth. So friendly, comfortable and reasonably priced. Comfortable bed. Shower room was immaculate and easy to use. Within easy access of numerous good and reasonably priced eating establishments in the town.

We recently stayed here for a couple of nights and were pleasantly surprised by the homely feel of the place. Having stayed in many guest houses over the years we found all aspects of the break to be excellent, the accommodation, the breakfasts and the friendliness. Loved it.

This was our second visit to The Ravensworth and we were not disappointed. First visited the Lakes for our honeymoon in June 2012 and decided to go back to re-live some memories. We had a very warm welcome from Nick on arrival. Rooms are spotlessly clean and lovely décor. We had fluffy dressing gowns and slippers (homely touch) with tea/coffee... More

On arrival we received a very warm welcome from Nick (the Proprietor) who showed us to our bedroom. There was a welcome pack in the room plus the usual tea/coffees etc. that were replenished each day. The breakfast was of the highest quality (cooked to individual taste by Cheryl). The Cumberland sausage is to die for. The best Guest House... More
