“The perfect guesthouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Kevin and Rachelle's guest house is the perfect place in a wonderful area for walking and relaxing - in a lesser travelled part of the Lake District. Warmest welcome, pristine and comfortable room, lovely lounge to relax in, views from all windows - best breakfast too! I felt the hosts and their guest house - would provide a wonderful model for all other guesthouses and their hosts. Many thanks to Kevin and Rachelle for a brilliant stay.

My husband, 3 year old daughter and myself stayed at the Fold Guest House for 2 nights. The room was lovely and spacious, even with a small extra bed in it. The location is fab for getting around the south Lake District. The bed was the most comfortable we've ever slept in!
The hosts, Kev and Rachelle were lovely and couldn't do enough for us - even providing a step and toddler toilet seat cover for our daughter.
The food is second to none - we had breakfast and dinner there and the local produce was beautiful.
We will definitely be returning in fuure and will (and have) recommended to friends and family.
Thanks Kev & Rachelle for making our stay comfortable and stress-free. It was so home-from-home that Sarah has asked if we're "going back to our other home"! lol :o)

Room Tip: Room 4 was gorgeous!

We have just returned from 3 wonderful days at the Fold guest house absolutely fabulous. This is a guest house not to be missed on a stay in the Lakes. Food first class and every need catered for including vegetarians. Our hosts were the best. We will for sure be back.

My husband and I have just spent 3 nights at this very quaint guest house, with top hotel standards, set in the South Lakes. Great location and excellent value for money. The owners Rachelle and Keven are very pleasant, and willing to please. Food is locally sourced and home cooked to a very high standard at very reasonable prices, they even did a pack lunch for us on one of our days out. Our room was again of very high standard, extremely clean. Our every need was catered for. We could not find a bad thing to say about guest house. This is a must stay hotel before everybody else finds out about it. Can't wait to go again.

Room Tip: All rooms appeaered to be of a similar excellent size, and value.
