We'll definitely come again - great location and view. Angela was attentive to our needs and keeps a clean, well-appointed guest house. The breakfast was delicious, parking was easy and the hanging baskets a delight.

We were booked in for a one night stop. It was the start of cycling trip through Lake District and so further to John O'Groats in Scotland. The Gateway is a splendid B & B. Comfortable bed. Very welcoming hosts too. The breakfast was superb, full English breakfast and fresh coffee. Absolutely recommended.

Why bother with a hotel when you can stay at a place like this? Ideally situated just to the north of Morecambe, close to the picturesque bay, in the lovely Hest Bank, it gives easy access to the Lakes. It is great value at £60 per night for a large comfortable, well fitted, double room with an excellent breakfast. And... More

Was booked in for two nights and ended staying another night. Angela was the perfect host and made me feel very welcome in her nice clean well presented Guest House. I was left to come and go as I wished with my own back door key. Breakfast was as much as one could eat kind of thing and felt set... More

Our room was on the ground floor at the front, which was very convenient for us as we had our dog with us. It was large and beautifully furnished and... More

This is our second year at the Gateway. This really is a luxury B & B in a great location for visiting the Lakes and Lancashire. Angela is a fantastic hostess, her breakfasts are first class and nothing is too much trouble.

The proprietor, Angela, couldn't have been kinder, more friendly, or more helpful. She lifted my bike in and out of the outhouse where it was stored overnight, and answered all my questions about local roads and cycle tracks. Although I was travelling light, it didn't matter, as everything I needed was in my very comfortable room. As I set off... More
