Stayed at Lowbyer in January for a Burns night... at 45mins from Newcastle it's close to a major city and yet far enough away to switch off completely and relax. The house is a traditional country house. Fantastic welcome and hospitality from the owners, great food and a well stocked bar. Very good value for money.

Lowbyer manages to keep a homely atmosphere whilst catering to all your needs. The home cooked food was lovely with a lot of love gone in to making it. Very accommodating to all your needs, and a fine drinks selection in the bar. Situated in a tranquil part of Cumbria. Very quiet rooms which meant for a lovely deep sleep... More

Very welcoming, friendly B&B, tea and biscuits on arrival. Comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms and a great cooked breakfast to send us on our way the following morning. Secure garage for the bikes was very welcome too,

Arrived later than planned after a long wet day cycling 80 miles, and were met with a lovely warm welcome, a life-saving mug of hot chocolate which at that point was the best thing ever, and a very well looked-after room with a very comfortable bed. Couldn't have been happier.

A warm welcome awaits at Lowbyer Manor. We were greeted with tea and biscuits and then settled in for our stay with our two dogs. This place is extremely fog friendly and the proprietors very friendly. Excellent breakfast . They also called us after we had left to tell us that we had left something behind which we were able...

Excellent!! We stayed overnigh as part of our Coast to Coast cycle ride and couldn't have asked for more. We received a wonderful welcome, secure bicycle storage, comfortable room and great breakfast. Particularly appreciated the tray of tea on our arrival.

We stayed last weekend as a birthday treat for my partner. Dinner, bed and breakfast were all lovely (if you pardon the pun!!). We had a beautiful view from our room and had a massive, comfy bed. Awoke to the sound of lambs bleeting. Very relaxing stay. Romance personified!!!

Stayed 1 night here as part of a C2C cycle ride. Postive points - clean; the bikes were locked away in the garage overnight; the hotel is 5 mins walk from the centre of town so reasonably quiet; the breakfast was very nice and I liked the the do-it-yourself toast option; welcome tray of tea/coffee provided on arrival. Negative points... More

This is a friendly, clean eastblishment with period charm and excellent personal service. Breakfast was delicious. The bed was comfortable as was the single room. The drive from Penrith is amazing and onward to Hexham also impressive.
