Stopped here briefly in the middle of a short Lake District break. The hosts couldn't have been nicer, more understanding and helpful- with great tips regarding the surroundings and in any other way they could help. The rooms are enormous and very nicely furnished in a classic style while sleeping here turned out to be very quiet- unlike other inns/hotels... More

Arrived Orton soaking wet. Our host, steve, picked us up at the Chocolate Factory at the appointed time and brought us to Tebay to his B&B. He was very helpful letting us dry our clothes in front of the fire, making us tea and a great dinner. In the morning he drove us back to the trail.

We were booked here by Macs on our C2C walk and were very disappointed to be so far from the lovely village of Orton where we had finished hiking for the day and instead to be located in Tebay several miles away and right on the M6. This may have influenced our feelings about this B and B. The room... More

HI, we're sorry you didn't have an ideal stay. In answer to your point about staying in Orton, you are right in that it is a beautiful little village however it has very limited accommodation. With the CtoC being so popular it is very difficult to accommodate everyone which is one of the reasons Macs use The Old school located... More

Lounge room was messy and did not appear to be cleaned or tidied during our two nights stay. We had intended staying three nights but left... More
