When we arrived we were warmly greeted by Mel and Lanie, given a variety of breakfast options to select for the next day and shown to our rooms. We were given a parking permit to park on the street outside. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was fantastic, none of the issues with temperature control I've had in... More

This is a great cosy little B&B. We arrived from our first day on the C2C route sopping wet and the proprietors gave us a great welcome, took our soaked shoes and showed us to our rooms, which were not big, but very well appointed. We were offered a lush choice of breakfasts to choose from (oak smoked salmon with... More

We stayed in the Willow suite in April and were very impressed. Lovely, comfortable B&B with very friendly owners Mel and Lanie, who both made us feel welcome. We would definitely recommend Brandelhow if you're looking for a B&B in the area.

I have stayed at the Brandelhow twice, most recently this weekend, and was made to feel very welcome by the owners Mel and Lanie on both occasions. The room was spotlessly clean with lovely towels, ample toiletries and drink making facilities and even a special tray for dirty walking boots. The breakfast is also excellent, in particular the home made... More

It's not often you find a place that's perfect, but Brandlehow was a beautiful guesthouse and the owners made us feel very welcome after a long journey from Newcastle. The room was the cleanest I've ever seen, but it was the little things that made it stand out. A mini fridge stocked with mineral water, hot water bottles and bathrobes.... More

Myself and some friends travelled down from Glasgow to Penrith last weekend. Three of us booked rooms here and the rest booked at a hotel along the road. Unfortunately, the man who came to the door took one look at us and turned us away saying he didn't want a large group (only 3 of us were staying here) or... More

I stayed due to football commitments and loved it. I have already booked to stay again in April. The room was really big and had lots of nice touches. Needless to say the biscuits were eaten everyday. The breakfast was lovely and the location is really close to town. The best thing about this property were the hosts who always... More
