I stayed here with my boyfriend last weekend after booking it as part of his Christmas present. We arrived after a long drive in the dark and the snow and as we pulled up, our hosts Lorraine and Martyn came out and greeted us with exceptional friendliness and warmth, almost as though we were family or friends coming to stay....

Stayed as a solo businesss traveller- very sadly for just one night. I arrived after dark, very tired and very frazzled after a long drive/hard day to a lovely warm welcome, cup of tea and top class home baking (I dont have a sweet tooth but could see the quality of Lorraines cooking - so as I was saying my...

I am sitting here at work after a weekend away at the Hawksdale Lodge and I can not stop thinking about how excellent it was! Lorraine and Martin have not missed a single detail. Words do not begin to give this gorgeous place justice, so please have a look at my pictures as well. I came here with my boyfriend... More

Our stay here was an absolute delight. Hawkesdale Lodge is absolutely beautiful and so welcoming. The food is delicious & everyone is looked after so well. Such a lovely family, we can't wait to come back again soon!

Lorraine is one of those types of people that strive for perfection in everything she does and it shows. The rooms are superbly presented, beds comfortable and the views breathtaking. Breakfast was a sublime foray into home cooking and local produce again provided with the utmost care. I have stayed at over 100 B&Bs and hotels across our green isle... More

Our hosts Lorraine and Martin could not have been more welcoming with Martin sending out a search party for a few lost souls! Firstly we were spoiled with a delicious cream tea followed by a luxurious soak in the beautifully appointed bathrooms. After a spectacular supper of Salmon and Eton Mess we warmed ouselves around the firepit whilst taking in... More

My wife selected Hawksdale Lodge on the strength of the reviews and we were not disappointed. We had elected to occupy the self-catered apartment which forms the East wing of the house. On arrival we were treated to freshly-made banana cake and tea, the perfect antidote to 5 hours of driving and the rigours of the M6. Our hostess, Lorraine,... More

I can only endorse all the other reviews! this B&B offers a view beyond reasonable expectations and food and hospitality to match the view! We read a Guardian review and followed his recommendation to take up the hosts offer of providing dinner rather than walk to the pub- and we were thoroughly rewarded by Lorraine's excellent culinary skills and will...

We have just returned from an excellent night staying at Hawksdale Lodge. We arrived after a long, beautiful days walking in the northern fells (rather disheveled & weary) to drinks and homemade cakes sitting on their terrace overlooking their amazing grounds and the hills beyond. Our room was spectacular and all so peaceful. Lorraine & Martyn recommended an excellent pub... More

Hands down our best accommodation experience in three months in the UK and Europe. Beautiful home, luxuriant rooms, glorious countryside, delicious breakfast, delightful hosts. Our two year old said it all as we packed up to leave: "I want to stay here". Worth every penny.
