We stayed here for one night on a business trip. When we arrived Patricia was lovely and welcoming, and had even baked some little cakes for us. She showed us to our wonderful room, which was spacious, beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was fantastic with a large shower and separate bath. Lovely egyptian cotton towels, fluffy bath robes... More

Recently stayed at the Swanson for a wedding and totally amazed at the quality and service of this B&B. The owner went out of her way to make sure everything was just perfect. Rooms are lovely and spotlessly clean with many little extras to make the stay special. Breakfast was excellent and plentiful Would recommend this B&B to anyone visiting... More

We enjoyed a lovely two-day break here. Pat was very welcoming and we had a fantastic, comfortable room right above the restaurant. This meant we coud enjoy the excellent home-cooked food while our four-year-old slept upstairs. Definitely worth a visit!

Although living in the Eden Valley this little gem has alluded us for the past 4 years of it's existence. It is a restaurant and guest house, but this review is just for the restaurant. It was the Trip Advisor reviews that caught out attention and we took a drive one day to see what it looked like. It is... More

I recently stayed here for 2 nights with my partner as we needed to be near Kirkby Stephen for a paragliding course. I booked via LateRooms at a bargain £40/night. Upon arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome and shown to our room, which was spacious, clean and lovely! There were the basics such as towels and tea and... More

We only stayed one night but wish we had booked more. What a hidden gem!! Pat was kindness itself. Our room, the suite, was fabulous. The bathroom and accessories were the finishing touches. The restaurant and food were just as you'd expect from a high class guest house! Well worth a visit for any occasion.

We've just returned from a night in Swanson house and have had a lovely stay. We booked through late rooms on Wednesday night and stayed on the Saturday. I received an email from owner Pat on Thursday explaining directions and asking if we would like to dine there. We arrived at about 4.30 to a very warm welcome and were... More

This is a very good value, very nicely presented B&B. Rooms (I think there were only two) were very generous in size and very thoughtfully fitted out. Beds were comfy and linens were of beautiful quality. The en-suite shower room was smart and clean with a very nice, generous sized shower. The owner was very friendly and the breakfast was... More

We stayed here on our last night of the 3rd leg of our coast to coast walk, being near to Kirkby Stephen where we left our car. Very nice large room with lounge area and large bathroom with both bath and separate shower. Very clean and even had bathrobes. A separate area just across the landing from our room which... More
