Staying at Pitcairn House was my first B&B experience in the United Kingdom and what a wonderful experience it was! Heather and Steve were there to warmly welcome my father and I after we had been hours of traveling. Located walking distance from the city center (or centre) and a perfect little walk to the Lake where walking trails are all around. We had a lovely time talking to and getting to know Heather and Steve a little bit.
The room (twin bed ensuite) was spotless and comfy for us travelers. Heather even put a little "emergency box" with q-tips and other bathroom necessities which I thought was a nice touch. Breakfast was delicious and cooked to perfection - they make such a great team! Since my dad and I were foreign to the city, Heather and Steve also made fabulous recommendations for restaurants and eats in the town that did not disappoint.
This little gem was a pleasure and a blessing to stay at!
