“Amazing place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

I cant put into words the amazing time we had staying at the Garden Suite. The hospitality we received from Geoff and Pam was above and beyond. This is the best B&B that we have ever stayed in and combined with Geoff and Pam's knowledge of the area, made for a fantastic weekend in the Lake District! We are telling everyone we know about this little bit of paradise as all the reviews don't do it justice;you just have to go and experience it yourself!

Have just spent a two day short weekend break at The Garden Suite.
The 5 star luxury accommodation encompasses everything that is missing from other B&B's.
The spacious, well furnished room provides a comfy king size bed, sitting area with sofa and wall mounted TV and large bathroom with bath and walk in shower. Also includes a well stocked Butlers pantry and complementary bottle of wine.
The attentiveness of Pam and Geoff is exemplary, the moment we arrived being offered tea in the garden to the 'turn down' service in the evening including chocolate on the pillow.
The setting is a secluded hideaway that offers a relaxing appreciation of what the Lakes has to offer.
If you are seeking relaxed luxury and a base to explore South Lakes then this is the place.
A fantastic experience and superb hosts, ( including Pip the border collie)

There aren't enough superlatives to describe this fabulous B&B. The view to the fells beyond the garden that Pam and Geoff have lovingly created from scratch is jaw-droppingly beautiful.
The suite itself is immaculate: comfy king-size bed, a big, squishy sofa facing the 32" wall mounted LCD satelite TV, DVD/CD player, iPod dock and free wifi. There's a butler's pantry with fridge containing complimentary wine, beer, water and fresh milk to go with your tea & coffee making supplies as well as some nibbles. On arrival there were fresh flowers, fruit and a decanter of sherry to welcome us, swiftly followed by coffee and homemade cake served on our own terrace.
The bathroom is up a couple of steps and has a terrifc walk-in shower and a large bath with robes and slippers provided and Molton Brown toiletries.
You can choose to have breakfast in your suite or outside on your terrace - and what a breakfast! Beautifully presented in white china on a snowy-white tablecloth you can choose from cooked breakfasts, cereals and a wonderful fresh fruit platter.
Pam and Geoff are such a lovely couple - they've based the whole ethos of this B&B on having things as they themselves like to find them when selecting their own holiday accommodation. Their attention to detail is amazing - they even do a nightly 5-star hotel type 'Turn Down' service (curtains closed, chocs on the pillows etc.)! It's well located for touring the southern Lakes and is within a short drive of a good selection of dining options from the Swan Inn at Newby Bridge and the Mason's Arms at Cartmel Fells to the fine dining of L'Enclume and Rogan & Co. at Cartmel.
We had a fabulous stay and next time we're visiting the area we'll be returning. Can't recommend it too highly!

Room Tip: There's only one - it's fabulous!

My huband and I have just enjoyed a night at this luxury B&B courtesy of our daughter who bought us a voucher as a Christmas present.Everything about it was perfect, from the welcome and hospitality we received from Geoff and Pam, the stunning garden where we sat enjoying our fantastic breakfast looking over to the fells and the luxurious accomodation furnished to the highest of standards. We have been in many B&Bs over the years and can honestly say this one stands out as the best one we have ever stayed in. It is also so handy for exploring Windermere and the other lakes and beautiful villages like Cartmel. We need to return to check out more attractions so we will have to stay for more nights next time.We will definitely be booking a second stay at the Garden Suite.

The owners were kind, attentive and natural hosts and that makes all the difference. The room itself is spacious, divided into a sleeping area and an eating/sitting space- this overlooks the well- tended and tranquil garden. The bathroom has a bath and a wet room enclosure with a rain head shower. There was most certainly a wish list compiled of everything a good and hospitable b & b should be and I think that every box has been ticked. If you want comfort, privacy and to be within striking distance of all the South Lakes has to offer, look no further than the Garden Suite.

Just returned from a 3 night special offer stay. Amazing value for money. I agree with all the other reviews. It is a special place. The weather was good so able to dine outside which was a bonus. Pam & Geoff are attentive hosts and their dog, Pip is gorgeous. We loved the sheep too! We do not often return to B&Bs but will be hoping to book a stay next year. You will not be disappointed!

It is difficult to describe how good this place really is! I have stayed in many top hotels around the world and none offer the privacy and intimacy of the Garden Suite. If you are looking for a quiet weekend away, you will not find a better location. It's like a 5 star bed and breakfast on steroids! Pam and Geoff are just the most perfect of hosts! Thank you and we will be back next year!
