Claire and Stephen went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable - our party consisted of my teenaged daughter, myself and my elderly mother - all of us were very impressed! The vegetarian cooked breakfast was delicious, the rooms clean, bright and tastefully decorated and the beds comfortable. The location is peaceful but well placed to visit the North... More

We are so glad that you all enjoyed your stay with us at Ouse Bridge House and we are happy that you found it a "home from home." I do hope that Lea found her work experience very interesting that she undertook whilst visiting the Lake Distirict. More

This guest cancelled their booking with us and did not stay in July 2016 as stated in this Tripadvisor review. The booking was cancelled on Monday 11th July 2016 @ 16h53 and the deposit was refunded to the guest on Friday 15th July 2016 @ 17h16. We believe that a 4 day turnaround on a refund is reasonable and any... More

Arrived at 5.30pm and given a warm welcome. Advised where local pubs and restaurants were. I was travelling alone but my room had a double bed and faced the lake with views of the yacht club and the mountains. The room had it's own private bathroom with bath and shower opposite. There is a guest lounge with honesty bar facing... More

They are very welcoming and helpful hosts. Many hints were given for the rest of our journey around the UK. Our room was clean and... More

My 6 year-old son and i spent 5 nights here last week and it was perfect. Hosts Claire and Stephen are extremely friendly, helpful and relaxed, always ready to have a chat and to recommend excursions etc. The breakfast was delicious and consistently so every morning (i'm convinced Stephen used to be a professional chef in his previous life!).

Lovely b&b in a beautiful location ideally situated between Cockermouth and Keswick. We received a warM welcome, and shown to our comfortable room which had a great view of Bassenthwaite Lake and the snow topped peak of Skiddaw. Our stay was completed with a great breakfast. Thanks.
