We were stranded in Hest Bank with broken down bike and no way to fix it til the morning. Angela was fully booked, as was all other accommodation in Hest Bank, but upon learning our predicament, she opened up her upper loft, generally not open for rental, to rescue us from having to camp out in the back yard of...

We stayed here because it's near the start of the Morecambe Bay cycle route to Walney Island. Our room was clean and comfortable. Angela was very helpful and cooked us a very good full English breakfast. There is secure bike storage. The Hest Bank pub is about 2 minutes around the corner which serves great food and beer.

A great B'n'B we felt at home and enjoyed a great breakfast. The views from our room were really good. We had secure parking for our motorcycle. It was close to a good pub that served great meals. Close to the canals so you can enjoy a beautiful walk.

Owner Angela very welcoming as was her lovely friendly dog, Bubbles. Spotlessly clean room, comfortable bed and beautiful breakfast. Added bonus is the short walk to the beach which is great for...
