We certainly found a gem in Greenacres Country Guest House. Having been on a "B&B" 5 night break, this was certainly our best find. Sue and Phil were ready to greet us with a cuppa and home made scones. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were exceptionally clean and tidy and the food delicious. We'll definitely recommend them to... More

Lovely location. Lovely friendly, warm hosts. Phil and Sue could not do enough for us during our 3 night stay at their beautiful guest house. The breakfast was delicious, superbly presented - try the Morecambe Bay Special!!... food cooked freshly and 'tailor -made' A lovely touch was fresh milk provided every evening - so welcome after a full day out....

Great to hear your review from your stay in April. So good of you to find the time, inbetween your busy schedules training and enjoying the outdoors, down in Essex, where we moved up from, nearly 8 years ago to come and run Greenacres. We have close family in the village, so that was a draw! We were so excited... More

What a great couple Sue and Phil are. Very welcoming and always ready with advice and help regarding the area. The standard of the rooms is excellent and the breakfast second to none. There are excellent restaurants and pubs nearby, and easy access to the Lakes make this a very good location for a visit. Go and Enjoy

Really glad you had a comfy stay. We know you enjoyed the tasty Lancashire mushrooms ( how good mushrooms should taste!) and the lovely Blackpool tomatoes which we cannot get too many of right now. Luckily they are available until October, so no worries about running out for our discerning guests' breakfasts! More

We have just returned from a night at Greenacres. The accommodation was spotless with very comfortable beds and the breakfast was excellent as well as the beverages in the room. Sue and Phil are very welcoming and make you feel at ease immediately. We have never stayed at a better B & B.

Greenacres is a beautiful property in the village of Lindale, a short distance from Grange Over Sands. The owners Sue and Phil were perfect hosts.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Greenacres is an authentic 18th-century Cumbrian cottage, formerly the village police station. Situated on the B5277 in the pretty village of Lindale on the beautiful Cartmel Peninsula to the south of the Lake District National Park. Lindale has two welcoming local pubs, serving real ales and highly recommended meals. Greenacres is now better known as a quality four-star guesthouse with friendly service and a relaxed atmosphere. The Edwardian resort of Grange over Sands, with its mile long promenade, is two miles away; the southern shores of Lake Windermere only six miles away. An ideal base from which to explore the Lakes. The nearby sands of Morecambe Bay are a twitcher’s delight with a wide range wildfowl and shorebirds. The popular Cross Bay Walks draw tens of thousands of walkers each summertime. Our warm Lakeland welcome includes afternoon tea and freshly baked home made cakes. Guests may relax in the conservatory and reading room, or watch TV in bedrooms. Additionally each room is provided with an off-street free and private parking space within our grounds. ... more   less
