This has all you could ask for in a quiet B&B. Our hosts were welcoming and attentive. Hawkshead is always worth a visit, we have been coming here for 40 years and this visit was a enjoyable as any of the others.

Nothing was too much trouble for hosts Steve and Sharon who provide a friendly laid back atmosphere to their lovely accommodation. From a comfy bed to a great breakfast, we couldn't fault the cottage. Highly recommended and we would certainly return in future.

A top notch B&B that could not be faulted. From the welcome to the large spacious room. The bed was great as was the breakfast. The location was very central and there was good parking for the car. The host had a good knowledge of local walks and lent yes a map. Our best night's accommodation on a 9 week...

This was our first stay at School House Cottage and it didn't disappoint!

Got a fantastic welcome from Steve, tea, cakes in the summer house. Our double bed was ok. However the room was so small I could touch the wall with my fingers when my elbow was on the bed, there was damp stains on the wall above the wardrobe and cobwebs in the en-suite, the ensuite was so small that when...

Warm welcome on arrival from Steve, tea, coffee & cake served in the sun pavilion. In the morning another warm welcome from Sharon followed by an excellent breakfast. A great location close to the village centre and lovely views of the surrounding areas. Good base for exploring the surrounding walks and sites.
