Absolutely superb BB with all the attention and and facilities anyone could ever want. As we set off for a snowy walk to summit Skiddaw we were presented with a hamper containing freshly baked scones and a flash of hot chocolate. Just what was needed after a brisk day on the winter fells.

Nice friendly welcome as we walked up to the house, lovely fresh coffee on arrival and a surprise bottle of prosecco for my Mum.

Will certainly keep it in mind if we are in that area again. A lovely 18th century cottage in a pretty village only a few miles from Penrith. It was full of character and has been renovated inside still keeping lots of original features in place.

An excellent country location, good evening meals available in village. Close proximity to many tourist attractions. Alex and Jeff take care of all your needs, and we have never been served such a breakfast ever.
