Fantastic place food and hospitality. Rooms spotless. 1 mile from Ulverston town centre. Free parking. When the pub next door opens it will make this place even better.Would easily recommend and would stay again. Many thanks.

I stayed here whilst away with work, great location just outside Ulverston. Lovely guest house, very clean & the owners were lovely. Rooms were very comfortable & clean and breakfast in the morning was lovely. I would highly recommend this guest house, very reasonably priced. Thanks for a great stay

The pictures and the web site really don't do this accomodation justice. It is a beautifully appointed and decorated house, the rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated (no lace and doilies) and the welcome is very friendly. The bed itself was comfortable, with stylish bedding and comfy pillows (and extras in the cupboard). Breakfast was generous with continental options as... More

Very welcoming, clean b&b, rooms were immaculate and very comfy. We were well catered for at breakfast and nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be booking again when in the area. Very good value for money. Practically in ulverston less than a mile. And a lovely quiet friendly pub a few steps away.

Our first night's stay before starting the Cumbria Way. Joanna made us very welcome and our room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. The area is very quiet and peaceful. The walk from the station at Ulverston, along footpaths and quiet lanes, was really lovely. What a great start to our Cumbria Way walk.

I have not traveled to Europe for many years and was quite nervous. Joanna and Eric could not have been more helpful. The house was immaculate, the bed comfortable. Was also very happy about the cotton linens. I would highly recommend the Red Lion House

I only stayed two nights at Red Lion House but it is a very comfortable and reasonably priced place to stay . The owners are friendly and helpful and provide a fine breakfast. The rooms are spacious and all is really good. There is a pub not far away. Swathmoor has a good bus service from Ulverston if you don't... More
