We spent 5 nights here for a girly walking holiday. James and Ruth are absolutely delightful, nothing is too much trouble for them, they are very welcoming, advised us on walks to do, provided maps, and even provided us with a mini fridge for our room. Cumbria House is very well situated a few minutes walk from the town centre,... More

Just returned from a 5 night stay at Cumbria House. Owners Ruth and James are brilliant hosts and couldn't have been more helpful or friendly. They have good local knowledge and suggested some stunning walks and places to visit in the area. Breakfast was delicious and rooms very clean and comfortable. I would thoroughly recommend staying here and would definitely... More

I have just returned home after a 3 night stay at Cumbria House. My husband and I stayed in The Lakes for our honeymoon and have been returning to celebrate our anniversary ever since, so we have plenty of B&B's to compare Cumbria House to. It simply is the best guest house we have stayed in by far and will... More

The rooms are very well appointed and clean. Facilities in rooms very good indeed. The choice of breakfasts is to die for. Full English Breakfast very good but there are about another 6 or so to try, and all very good. Ruth and James couldn't be more helpful and welcoming.

We visited for three nights in July. We were met by the owners who took their time to introduce themselves and show us around. They remained attentive throughout the visit and really set this little hotel apart from others with that friendly personable service. Our room was lovely and breakfast was too. You're given a choice of breakfast times and... More

As always, a lovely warm welcome from James & Ruth. They were very brave to accept our booking of 10 guys for 4 nights however they did a perfect job of accommodating and feeding us during our stay. It's located perfectly for the town which is only 5 mins. down the road. Parking is private so there are never any... More
