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

My pals and I had been walking the fells and valleys of Cumbria for a week. Our last destination was Scales Farm Country Guest House. As this all male party descended from Blencathra at the end of an extremely hard day we could see the building two thousand feet below us. When we arrived we were delighted to find it... More

I had a warm welcome, with tea and cake, to this lovely comfortable guest house which is in a great location at the foot of Skiddaw. Very nice room with everything you could need and a cosy communal lounge. Important for outdoor people there is ample parking, a secure bike shed, drying room and a daily mountain weather forecast on... 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
