Worth every penny and more, Pam and Colin were wonderfully welcoming from start to finish. After watching a few episodes of Three in a Bed before we left, I jokingly spot checked all the obscure places for dust and there was none! The bathroom appeared as though it had been freshly fitted for our arrival, the high standard was totally... More

We've just returned from a wonderful break in the Lakes and a perfect two-night stay in this lovely guest house. The Firgarth is a high-quality establishment in a great area - we travelled by train and it's an easy walk from the railway station. The room was modern, very clean and furnished to a great standard - can't fault it.... More
