We stayed at the old rectory from 16 to 19 April 2015. We have not been better looked after anywhere else and we have stayed in numerous places over the years. The hospitality was first class in all respects. The food superb, the room spacious and comfortable. There is a very marked attention to detail obvious in all aspects of... More

Dear Jackie and Jim We just wanted to say a huge thank you for writing such a glowing review - the first you've ever written we believe! We never ask guests to write a review ( despite being repeatedly told that we should do!) as we feel it's a bit like having to do homework! However we are always delighted... More

We've stayed three times in Boltongate Old Rectory; we know no better B&B anywhere (and almost none that are even comparable). Many small touches in the rooms, and small courtesies during the stay, show how much Gill and David have thought about every smallest detail to make their B&B superb. The comfortable, spacious bedrooms, the two guest sitting rooms (modern... More

This was our fifth visit to Boltongate Old Rectory. We love returning because Gill and David have created such a perfect place to stay.

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.

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.

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
