My friends and I stayed with Penny en route to Scotland. What a warm welcome she gave us, tea with cake served in her lovely garden overlooking the farm with beautiful scenery. Rooms were very good, pristine and very comfortable. On asking her she also recommended a good place to eat in Appleby. The breakfast the following morning was substantial... More

What can we say the perfect B & B - we were looking for somewhere, in a peaceful location, to celebrate a special anniversary and this was certainly the ideal place. A warm welcome from Penny & Dave along with tea and cakes in the garden, a beautiful en suite bedroom with lots of additional touches which made it even... More

We needed somewhere to stay in this area for one night and luckily came across this place on Trip Advisor. We were made so welcome by Penny (Her tea and home made scones were worth the trip on their own!) Our rooms were clean, comfortable and well equipped and we had a great nights sleep. The next day we were... More

We spent two nights at this lovely B&B in the little hamlet of Colby outside Appleby as part of a longer holiday in England and Scotland this summer. After being picked up by the bus stop in Appleby by Dave, Penny treated us home made flapjacks, tea and coffee in our lovely rooms. Penny's breakfasts were superb, as were her... More

The owners run this place with excellence; the food was local and fantastic, the living environment was clean and comfortable, the outside area was well kept and refreshingly restful. We would highly recommend this establishment!

Rode Whitehaven to Whitby as an on road C2C with some friends and we stopped here after our first day riding. Simply excellent! Bike cleaning and secure storage, all our sodden clothing dried out, a comfortable, clean room and a wonderful breakfast to send us off in good spirits the next day. Nothing was too much trouble. Stayed again on... More

Wonderfully relaxing, friendly, comfortable, immaculately clean B & B with a first rate breakfast and a first class hostess I could go on... Would recommend this B & B to anyone. Harry and I felt fortunate to stay and sample the hospitality on offer at The Limes. Thank you Penny.

Just returned from a two night stay at this lovely b and b and cannot sing its praises enough. From the room, comfy bed , superb breakfast , excellent hosts and great hospitality , it was 5 star all round. We had a lovely welcome cuppa with homemade flapjack on arrival in the garden and took a pre-ordered packed lunch... More

This was our third stay at the Limes and it certainly will not be the last as we do not think there will be a better, cleaner and more welcoming B&B in this beautiful part of our country . Add to this a good nights sleep and a lovely breakfast and what more could one want . A hot drink... More
