We were told the room would be small (ish). But knew it was only for one night. However it was not found a problem and really enjoyed the traditional breakfast. We were made most welcome. The other guests seemed to be happy as well.

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.

The owner gave me a very warm welcome the moment we met.
