Reviewed May 12, 2013

Spent one night at Crosby and it was by no means long enough. A group of us met there for a reunion as it was central for us all and we were definitely not disappointed. Dawn was friendly and welcoming and made us all feel so welcome in her beautiful home. Nothing was a problem and we all fell in love with the pristine, tasteful decor. The beds were very comfy, often a family room has one comfy bed and a few uncomfy ones but not so here, we were warm and cosy and slept well on this lovely quiet residential street. Breakfast was just delicious, plenty of tasty local produce was just the perfect end to our stay. All six of us will highly recommend to family and friends and would happily return. A very happy break made even more special by such welcoming people and relaxing environment.

Whilst on a business trip we stayed at the Cosby B&B, the proprietor was a warm and welcoming lady. The house itself is beautiful with 2 ensuite rooms for guests. Both rooms are very well kept and beautifully clean. We stayed in the larger family room with three comfortable beds, all ammenities provided. The B&B is a short walk into town where we visited the Lounge bar for cocktails. Breakfast was spot-on and set us up well for the day ahead. Homemade jam and marmalade was a real treat! Would quite like to live here actually?!

Would definitely recommend.

we only stayed here for one night , but my wife, my 3 year old, my 9 month old and myself were made very welcome, the room had a nice comfy bed for us and 2 twins, plus a cot for my daughter.
The room is a decent size so you do not feel like you are on top of each other, plus the bathroom has a nice shower, which we needed after been caught out in the rain!
Breakfast was spot on, just missing a high chair though, but other than that a very nice one night stay.

short but excellent one night stay. Dawn was extremely welcoming and helpful to three cyclists on a Lands End to John OGroats route. Nothing was too much trouble. Thoroughly, thoroughly recommended. All three of us remarked how great the place was. Definitely go again

We stayed it this guest house for one night as a family of five adults and found the rooms to be spacious and immaculate.We were put in adjacent rooms, the only people on that floor which was ideal Breakfast deserved a 10/10 and the proprietor was friendly and helpful. She recommended a nearby Italian resteraunt for dinner where we found the food to be superb even if the decor was a bit dodgy. We would definately stay again and recommend to anyone.

We stayed here for one night en-route to Scotland and were really pleased with our family room. There were proper beds for everyone, and plenty of room for all of us to relax. Spotlessly clean and the owners were friendly without being in your face. We set off the next day after a lovely breakfast (catering for a fussy child was not a problem) feeling very refreshed. Would definitely stay here again!
