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.

The hosts Angela, John and Bubbles (dog) are very friendly and so accommodating to your every need. it's a haven from when you arrive; beautiful landscaped seating area and fabulous rooms. There are little touches with chocolates, jelly beans and well stocked drinks and biscuits. I don't even get this... More
