Beutiful house in a lovely quiet place. The owners are very nice people, professional and very helpful. Delicious carrot cake and tea on arival. In the morning it was one of the best cooked breakfast we've ever had! 😊

What a lovely b&b. We normally don't stay in b&bs but the reviews swung it for us. We were delighted to find such a lovely b&b and such a warm welcome by Catriona with tea and cakes. Clean rooms, clean house in idyllic location. We didn't try the meeting pub nearby as it didn't look up to much but I... More

Stayed in Ashton house for one night. We got such a warm welcome from Caitriona. Beautiful cake and tea waiting for us. Our dinner was booked for us for that night and taxi organised. We were given great advise on where to go and what to do. Room was immaculate and cosy and what a great shower. Breakfast next morning... More

My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Shane and Catriona and really can only echo the other rave reviews. From the warm welcome on our arrival, (complete with tea and home-made baked goodies), through to the fantastic dinner at the restaurant kindly recommended by Shane, a great nights sleep in our spotless and comfortable room, the shower in...

Shane and Catriona are wonderful hosts and provide all the information you need to make the most of your stay. The field at the back of the house and view of the river is beautiful and this is a perfect location for exploring the area. I was unfortunately unwell when I arrived and Catriona was so kind in trying to... More

We loved our stay at Ashton House. Shane & Catriona were very welcoming with tea and cakes and provided plenty of information on the area and places to eat. A very nicely presented B & B in a beautiful location.

It's the same wonderful Irish welcome, with the same "Mum's" delicious cakes, the same comfortable room with plenty of sockets and Sky television, the same fantastic breakfast, the same idyllic location, and same two lovely Irish people providing you with a great stay at Ashton House.

Ashton house is a B and B superbly run by Catriona and Shane.. Catriona takes time to recommend local beauty spots and provide homemade cake! Beautiful views of river, great rooms, food is fantastic. Andrew and I had a lovely relaxing time!

Very easy to book and lovely warm welcome with homemade cake and pot of tea. Shane and Catriona are simply brilliant hosts who give you enough of your 'own time' but also really help with your stay and suggestions. We stayed for 2 nights - great size rooms and great shower. 100% spotless throughout - and each afternoon when we... More

Hard to fault this really excellent B+B run by Catriona and Shane. Great welcome, smart, comfortable rooms, full breakfast with homemade relish and jams, view of the river and ducks marching up for breakfast, with the ponies and foal nearby, lovely location. Nothing too much trouble. Evening meal in pub in Rathdrum, 10 minutes away. Wish we could have stayed... More
