Dufton House is a short distance from Cockermouth and very accessible for the Western Lakes and Keswick.
Bev and Sue were great hosts, making us welcome and helping us plan our stay. They've loads of maps and books about walking in the UK, which they're happy to lend to you.
The house is tastefully and comfortably furnished and the garden is stunning. Our en-suite room was very comfortable and had everything you would expect. The cooked breakfasts were superb, as were the cups of tea and lovely cakes when we got back to the B&B in the afternoon.
We're definitely going back to the Western Lakes and we'll be staying at Dufton House.
