I stayed here with my wife for two nights and we were not disappointed. From the minute we arrived the owners David and Gill could not have been more helpful and accommodating, making us feel part of their home and going out of their way to ensure that we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Our room was large... More

What a wonderful place to stay and enjoy a night with old friends. The hospitality and food are second to none and every little whim is catered for, I am vegetarian and really picky, but nothing was too much trouble. We really look forward to our next visit, hopefully this year. Top tip, ring Boltongate direct

Dear Patsy It was a real pleasure having your group here and we are delighted that you enjoyed your vegetarian meal. Gill was vegetarian for seven years, and still makes lots of veggie recipes, so was more than happy to cater for you. As mentioned in a previous response the laughter around the table was a real tonic so we... More

Tripadvisor What a wonderful place to enjoy peace, quiet, great hospitality and wonderful food. We arrived at the Old Rectory in time to sit in Gill and David's lovely garden and enjoy afternoon tea on the terrace with our friends. Their home is spotless, yet at the same time very welcoming and one feels completely at home there. Gill created... More

We stayed for just one night for special dinner and then breakfast. This is an old building with parts dating back to the 14th century, the dining room and the study/lounge, although tfrom the outside it looks Victorian. It is run as a B&B, but dinner available on Fridays and Saturdays. The food at dinner was wonderful with nearly all... More

Thank you so much for writing such a glowing review. We were very flattered to have been chosen by Cumbria Dining Club to host the occasion. When we first moved to Cumbria we were at a bit of a loss as to where to source good quality local ingredients. So Gill signed up for one of Annette Gibbon's Food Safaris... More

This place is immaculate and in a delightful setting. Gill and David were warm, generous, informative and attentive hosts without being intrusive. We loved our room which was spacious and tastefully furnished and we felt pampered with lots of thoughtful extras. Our super sized bed was very comfortable. In the evening we enjoyed 2 beautifully presented platters with locally sourced... More

Having read the previous reviews, I was hoping that Boltongate Old Rectory would live up to my (very high) expectations, but I need not have worried.

This place was perfect in every way. A gorgeous house & gardens, with stunning views. The house is immaculately appointed & the smiling welcome is open, friendly but not at all intrusive.
