Stayed at Red Lion House two nights and from the moment we arived we were made to feel very welcome and like family. The rooms were very comfortable and Joanna was very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Would recommend unreservedly.

stayed in the Red Lion house on 31st july 2014. Very comfortable room with all the facilities you would need. Breakfast was gorgeous and set us up for the day. Would definately stay here again. Very well placed to reach all the touristy bits.

Stayed for one night with my son at the start of a walking trip. Eric and Joanna are perfect hosts, for whom nothing is too much. Our room was spotless and the delicious home cooked breakfast equipped us for a day's walking.

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

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.
