Everything about the house, rooms, gardens, breakfasts and welcome has already been said. I would like to add that we came as a family, with 3 boys, and Eleanor and Phil were very accommodating in squeezing them all into Latrigg so my husband and I could have Skiddaw to ourselves. A real treat! Phil was supposed to be on holiday, but he gave us his time and attention which was greatly appreciated - the lovely tea and coffee he provided for us in the garden with choice of cake (on our arrival after a long drive) was a real highlight, especially as the sun was shining over Skiddaw! Nothing was too much trouble and we left feeling that we were leaving friends rather than proprietors. Outside the front door is a collection of heart shaped slates and stones - this gives an indication of the caring nature of the inhabitants. We would love to return. Other Bed and Breakfast establishments would do well to visit and see how it should be done.
