4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We recently stayed in the garden room. Tina was very accommodating when we asked to arrive early but the downside of that was that the room was cold so we had to light the wood burner straight away. We had some difficulty with this and Tina was very patient. I'm not sure that the under floor heating would have been... More

Wonderful place to stay. The hosts Tina and Tim can't do enough for you. Tim kindly dropped us off in Cartmel for dinner and made some good recommendations. Very tasty breakfast and delicious mince pies!!

We love the Blue House B&B, Tina is very warm and welcoming and will always help in any way possible if she can. We have only stayed in the garden room so far but we love it! The room is warm when you come in, (the under-floor heating helps with that! :D), and if it's still a bit too chilly... More

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of August, in the Romany Caravan which is in the grounds of the B&B. Whilst we knew the caravan would be special we were totally taken aback by the facilities attached to the stay and the setting of the B&B. To compensate for the fact that Romany caravans were built without... More

An absolutely wonderful B and B in a beautiful location. Our room was clean, comfortable and had an excellent view of the garden. The breakfasts were delicious. A particular highlight was the freshly baked bread. We also appreciated the tasty homemade flapjacks that were left in our room each day. The owner, Tina, was very welcoming and friendly and we...

Almost don't want to write a nice review as we don't want to share this delightful place. A really warm welcome from 3 very waggy dogs, and Tina herself was charming. The blue house is two minutes away from the A590 but you could have been miles from it. The room was clean and very comfortable with extra touches to... More

Me and my wife recently stayed over and arrived very early. The owner was very accomodating and even gave us a lift into Carmel. We were made to feel welcome from the moment she met us. Breakfast was nice with a good variety. Top marks

My 10 year old son and have recently stayed at the blue house. Brilliant find! Really great value for money. Tina does a fantastic breakfast with lots of choice - all home cooked. Lovely and comfortable room and facilities - we felt very at ease and relaxed. Thank you,!

We stayed here for 2 nights recently as a base to visit Cartmel. It is easy to find from the main road. And whilst the location is a few miles outside of Cartmel, Tina was very kind to offer us lifts and a taxi home was only around £12. The B&B is lovely and quaint. We had the forget me... More

Overnight visit, selected for convenience from motorway & proximity to Bowness. Tricky to find; need to take road before you get to the blue house coming from the motorway but worth the effort. Stayed in The Garden Room, more like a mini-apartment with lovley double bedroom, complete with sofa & TV area, dvds supplied too. Lovely big bathroom, so homely... More
