The live in owners John and Christine Westropp and family were very friendly and helpful. The building and location are fantastic. If this is sufficient then you will not be disappointed. The bedroom we had was comfortable, and the bed clean although a good dust of furniture legs and a vacuum in the corners of the rooms would have improved... More

Fawlty Towers springs to mind, especially as two of the rooms are in 'the tower'. After a hot day 's hill walking a lack of hot water did not go down well, the owners know they have a problem with the plumbing but failed to warn us and failed to apologise when we dared to complain. The dinner certainly wasn't... More

A truly lovely stay in a gorgeous house - it's a family home and you truly feel part of the family. Loved the piano in the beautiful dining room; perfect for impromptu singalongs. The food was delicious and the rooms clean and comfortable. Would really recommend it.

We booked the whole house for a joint 50th birthday party for my wife and my brother. The new owners have continued the very high standards at Hornby Hall. Rooms are very comfortable; the rooms in the tower, whilst smaller, are full of character and bear the date 1594. The main rooms are larger with antique furniture. Dinner in the... More

While visiting The Lake District we wanted a charming, old-world B&B and we found it at Hornby Hall. The mile plus drive off the main highway to the House was a beautiful trip into rural life. We passed numerous sheep, wild pheasant and rabbits before arriving at the beautiful period building. The owner, Ross, had made arrangements to meet us... More
