I stayed at Allerdale House for 5 nights last year. It was excellent then so I stayed for a weeks fellwalking this time and am pleased to report that standards have certainly not slipped. The single room was immaculately clean and comfortable. Great choice of starter for breakfast including a wonderful fresh fruit salad followed by full English, fresh and well cooked. Great location in a quiet street 5 minutes from town. Last but by no means least, Paul and Barbara are the perfect hosts. Full of helpful advice and local knowledge. When I mentioned that my knees were taking a bit of a battering coming down from the fells Paul suggested I try borrowing their walking pole - what a diffence it made so much so that I ended up buying a pair!
