If you're looking for a base in the North Lakes, look no further! The Old Vicarage is perfect. We stayed in the standard double room and loved it. The attention to detail is quite astounding and makes you feel really well looked after. Everywhere was immaculate and you felt as though nothing was too much trouble. Situated in a tranqil... More

The Old Vicarage at Lorton is the place to be if you want top service and attention to detail, and a tranquil atmosphere. Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean, with facilities for tea, coffee........but with a difference... Jane makes her own biscuits and provides fresh milk and ground coffee, with chocolates!! The breakfasts are superb with plenty of choice......... More

In some ways, this is a pointless review, because all I can do is reinforce what 71 people before me have said about this beautiful Guest House. Because, in truth, that's how you are made to feel - a very welcome guest in someone's house. if you're planning a trip to the Northern Lakes, and you're looking for a place... More

This is a fabulous guest house. We were lucky enough to arrive in afternoon sunshine and my first impression was of sheer space: large house, beautifully-kept large gardens with lawns, benches, terrace area, gravel drive . . . in drenching sunshine. The impression of elegance and attention to detail was repeated throughout the entire house. Spacious and comfortable guest lounge... More

The Old Vicarage is possibly the best b&b in the lakes. We are a couple who are both in our early 60s and for us this establishment does everything so well. Not a lot to add to the other reviews, as they say the food is very well cooked and nicely presented and the rooms are spotless. There is a... More

We stayed at the Old Vicarage for my brother's wedding in Cockermouth. Jane and Peter were very accommodating and went out of their way to help us with last minute printing and polishing jobs. The rooms were gorgeous, very well equipped and very clean. The breakfast was amazing. Highly recommended.

We stayed at the Old Vicarge at the end of March and found it to be splendid! A beautiful old Victorian building, immaculately kept and in an idyllic spot. Our room was beautiful and the bathroom was particularly impressive. There were thoughtful little touches like fresh milk and homemade biscuits in our room to. In fact on departure, we were... More

This was a wonderful base for our short Lake District break - we were combining two days of walking with two evenings of Wedding and Ruby Wedding celebrations. The Old Vicarage was comfortable and welcoming, with everything we needed to relax and enjoy ourselves. A lovely location, very well set up for our every need, with a friendly and professional...
