“Very helpful people at this great B&B”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

I chose this B&B because of the rating and was cautiously optimistic. The B&B was fantastic but better still was the owner. He gave us great advice on dinner (we chose Francine's), told us where to hike and offered the use of his phone for an important call. Breakfast exceeded our expectations. Highly recommend.

A fantastic run B&B run by a very friendly couple.

I and my girlfriend were warmly welcomed and offered tea and cake before we'd even seen the room. The room was fantastic, cute, clean, well looked after and a very comfortable bed.

The breakfast was fantastic, all organic and locally sourced food. As a fan of the Full English Breakfast and I heartily recommend it!

A lovely place to stay and would definitely return.

We stayed here in April but we must come clean, we have stayed alot of times and we love it.
The rooms are beauiful and the hosts are top people we just cant stop coming back, its the best place to relax. The breakfast is great and we have never ever found or had a problem, but if we go some where else we get very dissappointed as Wheatlands just out shine every where!!!!! Thats why we keep coming back so thank you for again an out standing two night stay. And we will see you all very soon rain or shine!!!

Room Tip: I have seen all the rooms and i think they are all as good, depending on what you are looking for...

We spent a wonderful two nights at Wheatland Lodge which was booked as a surprise birthday treat. Richard and Yvonne were excellent hosts. For breakfast we had full English on day 1 which was superb. Day 2 I had the smoked salmon which is sourced from Scotland, it was delicious and not to be missed. We were lucky enough to have fantastic weather and enjoyed spending a wonderful day on Lake Windermere stopping off at Wray Castle, Brockhole and Ambleside finishing with an Island tour. We dined at Roberto's in Bowness which was excellent value and Lazy Daisy's in Windermere which was well recommended by Yvonne. Local transport was excellent and we used the bus to visit Grasmere. We would certainly recommend Wheatlands Lodge if you are looking for excellent service in a convenient location.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 5 on the first floor to the front which had a four poster bed with two easy chairs...

My partner and I have just been to Wheatlands Lodge for 3 nights. From the moment we arrived we have had Ist class service. The hotel is very clean, modern and has all those little touches you like at home. We really enjoyed our breakfast I like fresh fruit in the morning and there was several choices and even my fav stewed apricots in syrup. I asked Yvonne if she sold her produce unfortunately she doesn't but I would have bought her special apricots.

Nothing was too much trouble. I would recommend this place to my friends because they like nice places and good food. We will definatley go back as it was a special experience.

We came here to get away for a few days after our wedding and didn't want to leave! To start, we were greeted and shown to our room (room 8) on the top floor by Richard, who was lovely and very friendly. When we were left, we realised that Richard and Yvonne had left a chilled bottle of champagne for us and put a heart made of rose petals on the bed! The bathroom was enormous and so clean that you could see your reflection on every surface. Even the skirting boards in the room had no scuffs! After checking out the house, we realised that this was the high standard throughout. Breakfast was delicious, local produce. Tea and coffee cups never left to go empty either and the home made jams were to die for! Had tea and cake brought to us in the garden which was lovely! Richard and Yvonne were so helpful with places to go, gave us maps, directions etc. Overall, hands down the nicest and most spotless, most cared for place we have stayed. And hands down the most lovely hosts! Thank you for a wonderful mini-moon!
