stayed here with my wife for a couple of days after the new year and I must say that it was a lovely little guesthouse, very warm and cosy inside. Jennifer & Stephen are lovely people who make you feel very welcome and give you all the help you need on your stay. The guesthouse is spotlessly clean, bed was... More

Absolutely great breakfast without a doubt. Another thing we liked about The Archway is that freshly baked cake was downstairs everyday . It was fantastic and loved the... More

We only spent one night at the Archway but that's more than enough to be able to recommend it highly. Everything others have said is true: from Jennifer's welcome and home-made cake, to the very comfortable bed and lovely bathroom, the large DVD library, wonderful views, brilliant location, this guesthouse is wonderful. We were fortunate to be able to have... More

What a pity we only had one night. On arrival we were led into a cheerful lounge/dining area. A large bay window looked out onto their colourful cottage garden. Food was in abundance. A freshly baked cake awaited us in the dining area whilst home-baked cookies welcomed us in our cosy bedroom. The beds were comfortable (always essential). We were... More

We stayed for four days and it was perfect : great breakfasts, lovely hosts and rooms. And the free cake was fabulous too. Would come again in a heartbeat. Even bought their homemade jam which was delicious.

What a wonderful, homely stay we enjoyed at the Archway, lovingly run by Jen and Steve. After arriving earlier than expected our friendly host (who was delightful throughout our stay) was ready without any ado to show us to our comfortable room: Coniston with stunning views out across the fells and binoculars to enjoy it perfectly placed on the window...

My partner and I had a two night stay and did not want to leave. The homemade cookies that we're put in our room everyday were superb, as was the freshly baked lemon drizzle cake and banana bread!! Continuing with food, breakfast was a veritable feast!! So many options to choose from including our personal favourites, pancakes with maple syrup... More

Best guest house we've stayed in. Breakfast was incredible - great menu and quality produce. Beds are so comfy. Location great. Lots of nice touches - freshly baked cake every day for guests, great DVD collection to borrow from. Coeliac friendly! Best birthday gluten free pancakes ever! Thank you Jennifer for a great stay

From the outside this is a nice 4 storey Victorian home, inside there is a big welcome. The place is run by a young couple he is a qualified chef and has taken some trouble to offer a large number of breakfast options. Between us over 10days we tried a fair few though we stuck with some favourites and didn't... More
