This really is the perfect B and B: spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated, very comfortable, great location from which to explore the lakes, breakfast cooked to order with high quality ingredients but above all a friendly welcome from the owners. Nothing was too much trouble; we arrived very wet and muddy and had our wet boots and clothes whisked away to... More

This was an ideal spot to stay whilst walking the Ullswater Way. Our room was clean and comfortable and the owners were very welcoming. We even received a homemade scone and cream/jam once we had checked in. The breakfast was outstanding.

David and Angela are a lovely couple who run a fabulous B&B. We are doing the Westmorland Way hike, we showed up with sore feet and were taken in like family. We had dinner next door then wandered back and slept beautifully and comfortably. They fed us a great breakfast and packed us a generous lunch for the next day.... More

They are all hand made using entirely natural ingredients in a small workshop about 25 miles from us. Had you said at the time we do sell the toiletries (and... More
