The rooms from this B&B were very large and we had alot of space in them. The beds also were very comfortable and the bathrooms were as big as needed. The only problem we had is that because they were fully booked, we had to eat our breakfast in our rooms instead of the place where everyone else was eating... More

Hi there! Thanks for all those kind comments, it was a real pleasure to have you stay with us. Just to be clear, you did book our largest room in which we normally serve breakfast whether we are full or not. Most people enjoy the ability to take their breakfast in the large bedroom, but we would have been happy... More

The b&b was in a lovely old home in Wndermere. Lovely welcome by Clare. Flannels supplied (unusual in UK b&b's but much appreciated). Small room & bathroom. Lovely breakfast. Soft pillows (fabulous), BUT oh the bed, you could feel the springs-not good, need new mattress AND not have a sheet of chipboard under it.......Handy to township. This was the 18th... More

We stayed here recently for a weekend in the Lakes. Had an amazing welcome in the morning from Emma with a great cuppa and luckily an early checkin to The Summit room. The room was superb, light bright and amazing views even from the shower. Wonderful breakfast options each day. I would suggest this is the place to stay in... More

We had booked room 6 which is a little more expensive but is a spacious room with four poster bed and a table... More
