Just returned from short trip to Distington and a beautiful B&b that is Littlebeck Warren. Situated just out of Distington and a couple of miles from Whitehaven we chose this for a quiet, relaxing break but, although the reviews on Trip were very promising, we did have reservations and so went with an open mind but how right we found the reviews were.
After a long day we got there to be warmly welcomed by Sue who took us on a tour round the beautiful property and then to our room and what a surprise lay in store. The room was very clean, superbly decorated, all the usual tea and coffee, tv, toiletries but the bathroom was so stunning and unexpected in a small B&B (there are only 5 rooms) and one that any large hotel would envy.
We also decided to eat there as we couldn't be bothered to try and find somewhere, although Sue was only too happy to point us in the direction of one or two good eateries, and the surprises continued. The menu was a good selection and very well priced, although as the wife said we should wait to see how good it was as there must be a catch- there wasn't. The food was of extremely good quality and equal to many restaurants we have dined in and for much less money, there is also a small bar on site which is operated as an honesty bar, just take the drinks and write down what you've taken pay as you go or pay later.
There has to be a catch here and it must be breakfast, there wasn't. Again the breakfast was as good as any hotel, cereals, fruit, full English,a few daily specials and as much tea and toast as you wanted, although after the full breakfast you didn't have room for much toast, no scrimping on quality or quantity and the perfect start to the day.
Sue is only too pleased to help in planning the day and seems to be very well educated on the local area and is a pleasure to talk to. A thoroughly enjoyable couple of days and a real treat to have found a true gem of a B&B
