Hawksdale Lodge is a magnificent house and situated at the top of a hill with spectacular views. The room, hall and breakfast room are decorated so beautifully with antiques it felt like we were royalty. Nevertheless, they were so welcoming to two weary cyclists and served us tea and a delicious chocolate guinness cake when we arrived. Lorriane's baking is... More

I was travelling solo up to Scotland from the South with my dogs and needed an overnight stop en route. Someone recommended Hawksdale Lodge and I had a look at the website and decided it looked pretty good. Pretty good ... "Pretty good" has to be the biggest understatement of my B&B back catalogue! Martyn was outside to greet me... More

This lovely old sandstone property is the home of Loraine and Martyn. They have created a beautifully decorated, comfortable B&B. The bedrooms are spacious and welcoming with splendid bathrooms. Breakfast can range from just their own hens' eggs to a full English including black pudding, tomato sausage ....the works! The house looks out over miles of rolling farmland to the... More

Just adding to my husband's review (Nick) - this was our first holiday with our seven month old baby and Lorraine and Martyn made it very easy and really welcomed her as well. We stayed in the apartment and it was great to have a 'baby package' with high chair, stair gate, cot and changing mat - at least reducing... More

It is a stunning aparment in a beautiful part of the country, in easy reach of the northern part of the Lake District and Hadrian's wall, with great short walks right out of the front door. I could write pages about how amazing this place is, from our warm welcome with tea and cake fresh from the oven on arrival... More

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

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
