Firgarth was a great find. I wanted B&B close to friends rented cottage who was celebrating their Birthday in the Lake District. Firgarth ticked all the boxes as I was close to my friends rented cottage so was able to have a lovely weekend in the Lake District. Secondly Firgarth B&B was extremely clean and everything in the property from... More

Would defiantly not recommend this place to anyone, the staff were completely rude and made you feel as if you were trespassing all the time, rather than relaxing. Paying £150 for two nights pft. If I were to visit the lakes again I defiantly wouldn't be staying in this place.

Our first review of 2016 1 out of 5....hopefully we can only improve! Apart from when you checked in on the Friday afternoon we didn't see you again until Sunday morning so I'm not sure how the staff were rude and how you were made to feel like you were trespassing. Let's not end the reply just yet though; let... More
