Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

One of the very best B&B's I have ever stayed in. A warm welcome and guided tour greeted us on arrival. A very comfortable (warm) room with four poster bed. Exceptionally clean and well maintained. Lashings of hot water and nice "White co" toiletries just what you need in the Lakes in March! Breakfast was freshly cooked with local ingredients, great choice and we never felt rushed. Shirley and Vince could not do enough to make our weekend a memorable one, many thanks.

Stayed March 2014, traveled as a couple

I stayed here in january for three nights and really enjoyed it. We usually stay in hotels but this house was far better than 5 star hotels. Both Vince and Shirley are very friendly and should be very proud of this b b.It is extremely clean with excellent breakfasts. their prunes with cointreau are moorish !! We stayed in the jacobean suite which had a comfortable sitting room. At weekend i took my daughters mother-in-law for her 70th birthday and she too enjoyed it. This time we stayed in the twin room which was on the ground floor (ideal for a wheelchair user as it is very roomy and has large doorways ).I would highly recommend Storrs Gate house.Look forward to see you both again. Barbara

This is our first time in a B&B and we have been converted!We normally stay in well known, large hotels. However, considering the celebrations, we opted for something small, personal and romantic. We got it all!!!!

Arrival: Everything you need on arrival. A warm welcome from a friendly couple. Whilst the lady took our bags to our room, the gentlemen offered recommendations for somewhere to dine that evening.

Room: We stayed in room four. Beautiful! We had everything we needed. Tea, coffee, Hot chocolate and a mini bar. We were even offered fresh milk for our coffee and tea, if it was something we required. Exceptionally clean! King size bed and the décor was perfect for our romantic weekend. There was even a bouquet of flowers there for our arrival congratulating us on our engagement.

Breakfast: We pre ordered the night before (all guest are asked to do so). We ate at 8:30 sat facing a beautiful garden and watching the birds on the bird feeders. Very romantic. The food was perfect! Very fresh!

All in all this was a perfect stay and we left feeling refreshed, well fed and full!

Please see pictures - explains all!
