We spent a couple of nights at the Blue House, which proved to be an absolutely idyllic location within easy reach of all the South Lakes attractions. A farmhouse-type B&B, it has two gypsy wagons (very trendy) for the brave vacationer, but we went with the comfort of the B&B room. The welcome and breakfast were superb. My only minor... More

A wonderful B&B in idyllic surroundings in a quiet, remote location. Everything we expected and more was provided. Owner was so friendly and accommodating. She went out of her way to ensure our stay. Ideally situated for local walks and proximity to Lake Windermere. Well recommended!

We even stayed an extra night and the kids got to experience a night in their 1970,s VW Campervan, what an... More

We stayed here recently in the Gallery, and were extremely pleased with the comfortable facilities. Our two dogs were very welcome as well, and also enjoyed their stay. The breakfasts were delicious, and Tina's flapjacks that were left beside our tea-making equipment disappeared almost as soon as she left them! Another couple's dog had a birthday while we were there... More

We had a wonderful stay in the Romany caravan which was so cosy and cute! The view was amazing and the cooked breakfast the next day was delicious. The lovely owner also kindly drove us into cartmel. Wonderful hospitality and would highly recommend a stay there.

Stayed in Romany Rose for two nights for our 20th Anniversary. On arrival we were met Tim and the very friendly dogs. Tim was a great host and showed us around the caravan and the wonderful shower/kitchen facilities and gave us a lesson in lighting and running the log burner. The caravan is lovely and cosy and we spent the... More

We stayed at The Blue House over the Bank Holiday weekend as we were going to Cartmel Racecourse to see Simply Red. As I couldn't get any accommodation in Cartmel I went onto one of the booking sites and this was the first one to come up. This was in January 2016 and I am so glad that I couldn't... More
