It was dark when we arrived, so we didn't see the unusual farmhouse design until the following day. We had a very warm welcome from Ian & Yvonne and were shown to our room with a good explanation of the facilities. What can you say about the room, it would put most 5* hotels to shame, very, very tastefully done.... More

Stayed for one night with the family recently and found this charming B+B more than a match for most hotels. The bedroom and in fact the whole place was spotless. Bedroom was both larger than offered in most hotels and better spec. Breakfast was full cooked English using quality ingredients with fresh fruit salad (obviously hand prepared) and cereals also...

We stayed in a lovely room in a 'quirky' bed and breakfast - in a quiet spot near Wigton. We were made to feel welcome and would most definitely stay again - the hostess was lovely and served a first class breakfast

Just returned home after spending the week-end here at this wonderful place. Thank you to Lorraine and Ian for a fantastic stay at this superb quirky B&B. I can only reiterate what other people have written. Just wonderful. We will be back.

The most quirky place we have ever stayed! Full of character and charm and comfortable and very well-equipped. A very warm welcome and generous breakfast - nothing was too much trouble.

We stayed for two wonderful nights, the hosts were more than friendly and charming. The farm house is quirky by design and has been lovingly and tastefully restored. The room we had has lots of character but without being imposing. The bed and bedding is without doubt the most comfortable I have ever slept in (including many 5 star luxury... More

We had 3 lovely nights at Fiddleback farm, the rooms are beautifully renovated, beds warm and comfortable and the breakfast delicious, a really nice place to base yourself.

We thought our stay would be pleasant as the "farm" sounded interesting but we were surprised when , as soon as we arrived, the owner, Lorraine, asked for cash upfront. It wasn't a welcoming experience and it had never been asked of us before. Next we found a notice on our door that stated that the heating had been turned... More

We are sorry to now have to ask Guests to whom we have no payment card details on record to make payment upon arrival. This has become necessary because our accommadation is separate from our Guests and we have no way of noticing when Guests depart in the morning early without making payment. With reference to the heating, the notice... More

this b+b has so much atmosphere it's wonderful, and that is just the building and the history that goes with it! The hosts are fantastic and could not have been more welcoming! You are spoilt with the breakfast choice and it is home away from home with cherries and chocolate sprinkles! Will return later this year it's already booked!
