Stayed one night on walking trip round Lakes. My mate had stayed before and loves it. Andrew is a top bloke - really enthusiastic welcome. Best porridge of the trip without a doubt. No frills but excellent place to stay. Recommend the packed lunch.

We have just returned from a truly wonderful stay at Burnthwaite Farm. It really is such a beautiful, heart-warming place. Andrew was an incredible host and he went out of his way to help my friend and I as we prepared (a little nervously) for our trek up Scafel Pike. The breakfast was delicious, there's a lovely communal living room... More

This is the second time I've stayed here whilst motor cycling. Its a lovely place to stay. You couldn't be made more welcome by the owners. Room was spotless and plenty of tea and coffee. Theres a great sitting room with a lovely fire. Breakfast was great. If you're a walker then this really is the place to stay. Couldn't... More

There is not another property that I've stayed at in the Lake District that can outmatch the Burnthwaite Farm. Everything is fantastic here. The initial contact, the welcome, the staff, the rooms, the beds, the coal fire, the lounge area, the food and the packed lunches. And it is the best value property that we know of. £31 per person...

View from our window was to Scaffel Pike! Room and all facilities were comfortable, very clean and great value for money. Location is perfect for all who want to set out for an easy or difficult day trip and will be prepared for this with a hearty English breakfast and welcomed back to a warm fire in the living room.

Shame we only stayed one night as this place is a little gem. Excellent value for money, warm, clean, great host (Andrew), perfect cooked breakfast and a amazing location. Perfect for walking Scarfel. Thank you hope to see you and Billy again x

Breakfast was well cooked and... More

A very friendly B&B, with great views of the fells, together with good access to all the main walks. There is a comfortable lounge for guests, our bedroom was on suit and looked out onto fells, it was not large but big enough and clean. Breakfast had a good choice and set us up for a day on the hills.... More

The best place for direct access to the fells. It is down a track beyond the maintained road and is often the only human dwelling visible from the surrounding fells. Warm, relaxed, working farm, friendly host Andrew and family, good breakfast to set you up for the day. Not loads of parking space but I am sure that can be... More

Han and I stayed here in October for Han's birthday and for us to walk up Scarfell. The house is full of charm and warmth and lots of character. The guys there welcomed us like returning family and it gave us a real sense of relaxation before the forthcoming onslaught! The first couple of days, the weather was fairly bad... More
