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

We recently stayed at Rayrigg Villa and loved it, Wills was one of the most accommodating hosts we have ever met, he was super attentive and hugely helpful even letting us keep a vast amount of Cumberland Sausage in the fridge for us to take home!. The breakfast was spot on with speedy service and fantastic bacon, there was secure... More

The title sums it up. Apart from a welcoming host and clean sheets, there's not much else that can be said about this place. The family room for £130 a night was a waste of money. The bathroom was tiny, the basin was tiny, the cold water tap did not work, there was mould in the shower, the furniture and... More

Have to echo what many others have said which is that this place is way overpriced and rates should be far lower than £90/£100 for an unexceptional double room. The so-called en-suite was little larger than a cupboard and shower cubicle not a good place to drop the soap! Beds too springy for my liking. On the plus side Wills... More

I agree with other reviews I am afraid, Wills the owner was welcoming and very helpful and the breakfast was really nice and plentiful. The room we had however, was not up to 4star standard and certainly not worth the £100 a night that we paid. In our opinion it was a single room with a double bed in it,... More
