“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

I stayed here with my husband for two nights in August 2012. He booked it as a wonderful surprise after seeing it in an article in The Independant on the top 50 B & B's.

The house is an eclectic mix of farmhouse and stately home twist. This is a wonderful place, totally different to any other B&B we've stayed in. We booked to stay in the Castle room which in itself feels decedant and luxurious but when you combine it with the bathroom it is just amazing.

In a room as large as the bedroom itself stands a superb cast iron clawed bath. The white wooden floor is covered in sheepskin rugs, while the walls are adorned with lovely black and white wallpaper.

If you want quirky luxury then this is the place for you. The mornings started with a great fried breakfast. Everything was cooked to perfection, fresh and local.

Having stayed in many B & B's in the UK we have honestly never been anywhere as special as this. We are hoping to return at new year to enjoy the countryside in a different season.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2012

We stayed last weekend and had a wonderful time, the host Victoria is charming and the rooms are wonderful. A real taste of a country house with a flavour of a boutique hotel. Stylish and individual. We had requested dinner and it didn't disappoint, we enjoyed an excellent three course dinner. Lots to do close by including the Lowther Castle & Gardens and wonderful local village pubs. Easy to find just off the motorway, Whitbysteads makes for a really great short break.

Room Tip: if the main Castle room is free - ask for this as it has a huge bathroom and the decor is amazing, t...

You have to go here just to see the bathroom in the castle bedroom - it just reminds me of something out of cleopatra.

It cot us £100 for the night but was excellent value for money considering the unique rooms. The views from the hotel are amazing and so scenic.

Victoria was very nice and we were never short of places to go to enjoy this wonderful area. A commendation to the owners.
