Delightful stay with Michaela, Stuart and their daughter Imogen in their superbly appointed rooms at Smithy Cottage. An idyllic location and extremely friendly hosts, we enjoyed the spacious rooms, bathrooms and excellent breakfast. The family is very friendly and welcoming; helpful, attentive and just the perfect blend of chatty without being overly familiar. On Friday night, they babysat our two... More

The term 'B&B' does not do this beautiful little place justice. After spending a few nights here it is a lot lot more than that. I got put up in the smithy by work after a project I am working on had run a little over schedule by approx 3 days. My only disappointment is that I hadn't been put... More

Stayed one night. This accommodation is immaculate. Tastefully furnished, spotlessly clean. Very restful atmosphere. This is a very classy B&B. Michaela was extremely helpful. Great breakfast. A perfect base for exploring the Lakes and an ideal stopping point for M6 travellers. 5 mins, but far enough from the motorway to be completely tranquil.

How lucky we were to stumble across this B&B. We visited the weekend between Christmas and New Year 2014 and felt like we were staying with friends! We were warmly greeted on our arrival and shown to our rooms which were spotlessly clean and very spacious. Breakfast was a delight with a wide range of options to please everyone and... More

We can think of absolutely nothing negative at all to say about this place and recommend it 110%. It was spotlessly clean, rooms spacious with comfy bed, amazing spa bath, fantastic after a long days walking around Ullswater. The shower was also powerful and hot. Lovely breakfast served in the conservatory and super friendly people. We will be back.
