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

From start to finish, Angela made us feel very welcome! Fantastic rooms, spotlessly clean. Breakfast was unbelievable and the highlight of our stay, fresh fruit, toast and beautiful preserves, unlimited tea and coffee! Excellent to start to the day. Cannot recommended enough and excited to come back!
