We had a long weekend in December here and we had a lovely time. The food is good the room was clean and well equipped for our needs. The staff are very helpful and could not be more friendly and welcoming. We will be going again in the spring time. Thank you Colin and all your staff and have a... More

Thanks to Colin and staff for another excellent trip. This is the second year we have visited and would recommend. Locals very friendly. Even though the boiler broke for part of the day. The rooms were warm and cosy. Lovely hot log fires. Food is to die for especially the fillet steak. Will be back with more family next year.

We recently spent 3 nights bed & breakfast at "The String of Horses" at Faugh Cumbria. The rooms were very clean and modern, the bathroom was light and airy and a good size. The breakfasts were some of the best we have ever been served - choice of cereals, fresh fruit and fruit juice followed by a very tasty full... More

Very friendly 4 star country inn. Great food, clean and comfortable rooms; real fires in the bars, real ales and good selection of malt whisky. Only 7 miles from Carlisle (we visited there on the first day and were amazed at the size of the place, there was a European market on and it was so Christmassy! Loving our stay... More

We stayed here after booking it for a 3 night groupon special. As it was for our minimoon we upgraded to the superior room. On the whole it was a very lovely place to stay. The room was spotlessly clean, the staff friendly and polite. The only downside as such was that we booked to stay on the Monday. We... More

We arrived on a rainy November night to a cheerful welcome, and much appreciated our large room. We ate well - local ingredients, and good ones, were clearly used. There's plenty on the plate. Also we enjoyed the beer. Occasionally the young and enthusiastic staff forgot us for a while but they are so nice we didn't much mind. If... More

Stayed for second time this year for one night at end of October. Got same double room as last time (room 7). Nice size and comfy bed. Lovely evening meal (lamb banquet and steak) and nice breakfast to set us on way the next morning.

We are both in our seventies and cannot remember ever staying at a more delightful place. It ticked all the boxes. (As Arsenal supporters, much to our delight, we were able to watch them on the Bar Television.) We live in Aberdeenshire so it is quite a journey to Carlisle. That said, we will make every effort to return again.... More
