We pulled up at the small farm to a warm and friendly welcome. The accomodation adjoins the main house, so there are 3 guest rooms and a lovely communal living room, complete with cat! There is a great attention to detail that makes you feel very well looked after. The breakfast was delicious - as was the lemon drizzle cake!... More

We have been staying in this delightful bed and breakfast for 20 years. Sheila is a wonderful host and very welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble and the tea and homemade cake on arrival is always delicious. The breakfasts are excellent and set you up for a days walking. We cannot recommend this place highly enough. The bedrooms are pretty... More

I thought we knew the lakes but it seems this little pocket has gone undiscovered by us all these years, and by others also. What a beautiful peaceful haven and Sheila's lovely home only complements this. thank you for such wonderful rest.
