We had the opportunity to take a couple of days' break and as my wife had never visited the lakes, we searched for places to stay on a budget. Ignoring the fairly excitable negative reviews, we chose Rayrigg Villa due to its location, price and availability. We are now certain we couldn't have done any better. We knew we wouldn't... More

Stayed one night with my girlfriend on a last minute decision and the owner wills was a excellent host and well into his cars which made it perfect for me. Breakfast was excellent and very quick service. Room was decent and bathroom was clean and equipped.

After a somewhat lengthy and tiring journey from London we were greeted at Rarigg Villa by Mr Wills who made us feel at home in his own Scottish ways, and understanding our predicament for we were late for our prayers immediately sent us to our rooms. The rooms allocated to us were pleasantly decorated with even a small teddy bear... More

Double room was pretty small, with very cramped en-suite. Couldn't open windows in room. Off street parking very limited (3 spaces). On the positive side, room was well equipped, clean, breakfast excellent, staff very friendly and it's very conveniently located for town centre shops, pubs and restaurants.

Wow I couldn't say nice enough things about this place, from the moment I phoned and spoke to will to the moment we left he was very friendly and welcoming. When we arrived he showed us around and to our rooms where we were greeted by a perfect family room, comprising of a double bed and bunk beds which my... More

Me my partner and 2 kids stayed here a few nights back for 2 nights, wills the owner was very accommodating, telling everything there is to do, which is what you want to see, we struggled finding anywhere who would take in 2 young kids for a reasonable price, seriously we searched hotels, B&B's, self catering and the price Rayrigg...

I stayed here for 2 nights with my fiancé as part of a rare getaway from city life. We were greeted on arrival by one of the owners, Wills, who took us on a tour of the property and showed us up to the room: He also gave us an excellent summary of things to do in the local area... More

Stayed for one night on the 24th, Pauline the lady of the house who is a gem of a woman greeted us, she took time to show us round which was a welcome change to the usual "heres your room now give me your money attitude" The room itself was spacious and modern no complaints here. Breakfast was served between... More

Pauline, the co owner let us know quite clearly that takeaways do not require plates and cutlery and that we should not bother them requesting for some. We stayed at Rayrigg B&B for 3 nites. While we were glad that we finally found a place and they accepted kids too, but they didnt come cheap. They were charging us GBP... More
