“Five Star”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

We have just come back from one night with Ken and Barbara and must say we have been on Five Star Cruises and their b&b is the next best thing, absolutely fabulous!! The room was spacious and the bathroom large for a b&b. They have thought of everything both accommodation and breakfast where excellent and such a nice couple. Hope to stay again shortly.

Room Tip: Our room was the twin which we were quite happy with, a lovely view of the Pennines.

Ken and Barbara were great hosts and ran an excellent B&b with good sized rooms and modern bathroom. Good idea to be able to push cases under beds and out of way. Nice to have the conservatory at guests disposal and nice to have a warm welcome with tea and cakes. Breakfast very good and in close proximity to centre and the start of the second half of the C2C. Great place to stay

Wonderful stay- wonderful hospitality. Equal best B & B on our Coast to Coast walk.
Arrived in lovely sunshine after the long walk from Shap to be greeted with genuine warmth, a large pot of tea, homemade date and walnut cake ( 2 slices each) and Scottish butter shortbread served in the beautiful garden.
This was a genuine " anything you want just give us a call" place- Barbara and Ken really could not do enough for you- from advice on the C2C walk ( they have done it 3 times) to where to eat locally.
A great breakfast, with a spectacular fruit salad, choice of cereals and an immaculately presented and perfectly cooked English breakfast.

An excellent welcome from Barbara and Ken, the house and garden are lovely. We had a very comfortable stay. Home made cake and tea on arrival. The room had all sorts of little touches that made it such a good place to stay.

Couldn't ask for a more perfect place to stay. Warm welcome off the Coast to Coast with tea and cakes in the conservatory, spotless rooms with a deep tub and bubble bath, a five star breakfast cooked to order, and the BEST PACKED LUNCH EVER. We would stay here again and again.

I don't see how a B and B could be better. Barbara and Ken are very welcoming and we were berated with tea and home made cake. Rooms were spotless and comfortable. Breakfast was all you could possibly hope for with a great fruit salad , prunes , youghurts, every cereal you could wish to have plus excellent cooked choice. We had a great packed lunch as well. This was such a great place to stay it is worth going to Kirkby Stephen just to stay again. 10 out of 10!
