Excellent b&b, lovely comfortable rooms, super friendly hosts! Talking to them over breakfast was like talking to your parents! Couldn't recommend this b&b high enough. If you in Carlisle, and need a place to stay, make it here, it's great!

Stayed here for 1 night walking west to east along Hadrian's Wall. Ideally located to rest and visit the city after the long 'slog' from Bowness on Solway. Not luxurious but met our every need and reasonable in terms of costs.

We stayed here for 2 nights and will definitely return. A lovely warm and friendly couple run the guesthouse that is spotlessly clean, has everything you need and service an excellent traditional breakfast . Great value for money. Highly recommended

Such friendly hosts! Our room was warm, comfortable and I didn't want to get out of the shower. So many lovely extras like toiletries in the bathroom, chocolate with the tea, posh organic tea bags (no own brand dust!) and a convenient location near the centre of Carlisle.

Very warm welcome as soon as you enter. The room was very clean and great shower. Nice soft beds make for a great nights sleep. No noise can be heard from the road. Breakfast was spot on. And the landlady knew I was catching the bus to work and got me a bus timetable! How thoughtful. 5-10 walk into town.... More

I was recently asked to work at the Stanwix Theatre at The University of Cumbria for 5 weeks. Having never been to Carlisle before, I thought it wise to stay close to where I'd be on a day to day basis. I am so very glad I did!
