Stayed for two nights at Lupton Lodge and had a wonderful time. Andy our host was lovely and very helpful. The breakfasts were wonderful, we had dinner one night cooked by Andy which my mum continues to rave about! We struck bad weather and Andy went the extra mile to check out road conditions for us and other details. Even phoned ahead to the next place we were staying to see if we had made it through. The house was lovely, our rooms were lovely and spacious and it was great to have the guest lounge for extra space. Would love to go back again if I am ever up that way again. Really made the B&B experience memorable.
