This is an Immaculate guest house in a former pub with very friendly hosts. Rooms were a great size and perfectly equipped. Breakfast was good. Under priced for what iit is, Will book again next time I'm in the area

Very friendly hosts, only too happy to help with local information such as where to eat and good walks. We stayed in a twin room and were very happy with the size, amenities and cleanliness. The only draw back was for us was the location of the room/building on the main road. Both my friend and I are light sleepers... More

It's very unusual that I leave a hotel or B&B wishing I could stay a bit longer, but this was the case at Red Lion House. The B&B is the perfect mix of homely and welcoming and wonderfully maintained and professional. My room was spotless and very comfortable, and instead of an en suite I had sole use of a... More

From the moment we arrived Joanne and Eric made us feel completely at home here. We came up and stayed 2 nights for a family wedding with our 3 1/2 year old twin boys and had the family room. The room was a good size, very clean and with lovely comfortable beds. There was even buckets of lego and duplo... More

Joanna and Eric made us very welcome to their converted inn. Décor is very contemporary, bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and dining room all very clean and comfortable. Within walking distance of Ulverston (about a 20 minute walk), and short car journey to the south lakes. Would definitely recommend this delightful B&B.

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.
