Lovely room, ideal for young children with plenty of space and bunk beds hidden behind a curtain! Very friendly owners, really good breakfast. Ideal location for exploring Lake District, would recommend white horse inn next door for dinner.

We had an overnight stay here, breaking a journey from Scotland back home to England. We were quite tired when we arrived and we delighted to receive a very warm welcome, cups of tea, and cake. The owners were very friendly and engaging. The rooms were very comfortable...we had a family room which included bunk beds, a cot as well... More

We loved this B&B - the owners were so friendly and welcoming, even providing tea and cake on arrival, and the room was spacious and comfortable. We had a large double room, with bunk beds and a cot curtained off in one area, so it would be ideal for families with young children as well as couples. For dinner, we... More

My wife & I stayed at Sacles Farm for a week recently. Ivan, Helen & Richard were wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcome. Had lovely home made cake & tea, which was very welcome after a 7-hour drive! Our room was very comfortable, even had a minibar which was very welcome. The only slight niggle with the room... More

Stayed here on the 2nd night of cycling coast to coast. What can I say?! Scales Farm is gorgeous. The lounge is warm and welcoming as are the owners! Tea/coffee and homemade cake on arrival hit the spot beautifully. My room was massive and the bed was huge too!! Everything is exceptionally clean and of good quality and the power... More

Rooms were delightful, roomy, attractive. Owners are always smiling with that extra edge of helpfulness (like providing a weather forecast for us) Nothing else to say really - everything was just perfect. Don't bother looking elsewhere - stay here.

Stayed in many B&B's over the years but this one was exceptionally good. Was made to feel very welcomed from the moment we arrived by being provided with cake and coffee. The room was spacious and far from cramped and even had its own min bar! Doggy bags were provided in the room for our dogs also. It's the little... More

We had been travelling around the UK for a couple of weeks and this was one of the most memorable B & B's. A beautiful location, lovely room, great breakfasts, and hosts Helen & Ivan were fantastic. A really warm welcome, lots of good information about the area, and they created a great friendly atmosphere. It was lots of fun.... More
