What can we say this place is beyond amazing we booked in for 3 nights after reading reviews and so happy we did. When we arrived we got a very warm welcome from Andy and Tracey which made us feel at home within 1 minute. Andy offered to help with the bags and took most of them which was so... More

We stayed here for our four night stay in the Lake District and couldn't be happier with our choice. Andy and Tracey went above and beyond, making our stay perfect. Being Celiac wasn't a problem, we were treated to Gluten free breakfasts every day, with lots of variety. Tracey's homebaked gluten free biscuits were a real treat too. Our rooms... More

We booked this guest house based on the reviews of the property and the location; we weren't disappointed. Our initial impression was how lovely the outside look and how great it was to be warmly welcomed by the proprietors, Andy and Tracey, both of whom were very pleasant hosts.

What a gem of a place - spotlessly clean. Andy and Tracey are extremely welcoming and it's all the little extras that make this place a delight - freshly baked cakes every day for one.
