We are really pleased you and Ben enjoyed your recent stay with us and found everything to your liking. None of the en suite shower rooms are large so if you stay with us again remember to book direct and ask for room 6. Thank you again for taking the time to post a review we appreciate it.

I am sure to be echoing all previous reviews, but the location is great, the rooms are nice and clean, Pam and Colin are warm, friendly, and ready to help and advise on walks, restaurants, directions etc. They are both attentive and remember what you say, or what your preferences might be for breakfast and so on, which just makes...

Spent 2 nights here last weekend. The B&B is located about a 10 minute walk from the town centre. We received a great welcome by Colin. After a cup of tea he gave us some info on the local area. Our room looked like it had been recently renovated. It was immaculately clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was amazing with... More

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.
