More than anything, the Oakfold House feels at home. The rooms are meticulously clean with a touch of warmth in every corner - making you feel more at home rather than in a hotel. The owners pay attention to the small details - on the night stands, in the bathroom - everywhere... The location is very easy to reach (though... More

Easy walk to restaurants and pubs! Hosts were great and very accommodating to our late checkin. The full-english breakfast was just perfect for our roadtrip around the Lakes District. Highly recommend the Angel pub/restaurant down the street.

Welcoming, good breakfasts, clean, comfortable room, quiet location but easy walking to town centre and lake. Mountain Goat tours pick you up from guest house if you want to get out and about without a car. Near the lake for boat trips.

Highly recommended, within... More

We stayed at Oakfold House for 3 nights from the 16th August in room number 6. From the moment we arrived, Max and Marnie were warm, attentive and welcoming, and they couldn't do enough for us during our stay. As it was our first time visiting the Lakes they were very helpful in recommending activities and pointing us in the... More

Lovely large house converted into light and airy B and B. Hosts were very friendly and cooked a good breakfast ! We stayed in a rather small double room but larger rooms are available. Good location - easy walk to good selection of pubs and restaurants and also to the lakeside. Would stay here again.
