Wonderfull B&B, this was our second visit and enjoyed it just as much as the first. Max and Marnie very helpful and friendly and the cooked breakfast is superb. Our room was very comfortable and clean. Within easy walking distance of Bowness and amenities and there is a lovely garden to sit in if just want to relax.

The room was lovely. It was very clean, it had a comfy bed, and there was a good-sized bathroom. The breakfast was good and the owners were very pleasant and helpful. The tea/coffee on arrival was a nice touch, too. We would definitely return.

I'm not one to leave reviews when staying away from home but I felt that this excellent b&b deserved it. We arrived on the Friday just after midday and was welcomed by a very friendly Max who settled us into our rooms (family room and single room).
