Myself and my husband have just returned from a 2 night stay at Scales Farm and we weren't disappointed! Lives up to all of the excellent reviews on here,we couldnt have asked for more.

This is my second visit and it was just as good as the first. Helen, Ivan & Richard are a great team and provide an excellent service with a friendly touch. The rooms are very nice, the food is excellent and the location/view is wonderful.

I can't imagine we can add anything original to the already glowing reviews of this B&B but we'll try! Really lovely owners: welcoming, knowledgeable and fun. Our room was very nice as was the living area we could use. Breakfast was consistently good and they did their best to accommodate the dietary requirements: including delicious gluten-free cake with tea on... More

we stayed here for two nights and we cannot fault it. Helen and her team were fantastic and very welcoming. The breakfast was brilliant and the pub next door served great meals. We had everything we needed and could have easily stayed longer. Great example of a country B&B

This is an excellent B&B. The rooms are comfortable and well-equipped, the breakfasts are freshly cooked, and the proprietors go out of their way to be helpful. The pub next door serves good food. Blencathra is on the doorstep. My only reservation would be the location; it's just off the A66 so couldn't be described as away from it all.... More

We stayed here and booked out 5 rooms between us. The rooms are fantastic - clean, modern, really comfortable beds and duvet, fridge in room, TV in room, modern en-suite, really soft towels, warm and powerful shower, etc. Only thing I'd improve is putting in a blackout blind rather than normal blind. The breakfast is also great (cooked breakfast as... More

Although a little while ago now (half term) I have only nothing but praise for the service, comfort and gentle entertainment that the owners of scales farm give from the moment of arrival to your departure. Comfortable rooms with mod cons, choice of breakfast, advise on the types of walks, maps, weather print outs and a walk up Blencathra just... More

From the minute we arrived at 8pm we were greeted with warm drinks and homemade ginger cake - this level of hospitably last the duration of the stay. The bedroom was very comfortable and clean, the breakfasts of a high quality and accommodating for my veggie partner. The... More

We stayed for a long weekend with 2 children. Had a large family room with large kingsize, bunk beds and single bed, still plenty of room. The room was immaculately clean with every thing you could need. The owners are exceptionally helpful and friendly, Helen's cake on arrival was a lovely touch. Breakfast - fab. Really the best bed and... More
