“Terrible!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

We stayed for 1 night on the way back from holiday in Scotland. We were welcomed by the owner that showed us briefly into our room. The room was so small that the bed took nearly all the space . There was hardly how to move around the room. When we asked about restaurants in the area the answer was not helpfully . When we booked we were told that it is a quiet place. Well, we could not sleep all night because it is located on the main road. The bed was terrible as so the small bathroom. We left at dawn without breakfast and no one was raven asking why. Not raven in an email or phone call. At least he got his money and not interested in the guests. We will not come or recommend that b&b to anyone

Lovely Home,, Lovely hosts. Mike & Kathleen make you feel welcome, and the Rooms
are beautifully decorated and prepared. The Bed was wonderful ( firm ) and the Bathroom + power shower incredibly welcome at the end of the day. The Breakfast is fulsome and tasty, and Mike does not rush you out of the dining room. Cannot praise this place enough, and we have stayed in a lot of B & B's over the year. Would definitely head back there if visiting the Lake district. Oh, The view out the Bedroom window of Ullswater was beautiful. Just about perfect !!

We stayed for one night at Cherry Holme during a short walking tour of the Lakes and could have easily stayed longer.

The room was a good size and very comfortable. The breakfast was good and the owners were very helpful.

Friends of ours from Kent had rented a cottage in Glenridding and we decided to go see them as we live near Newcastle. I looked for a B&B and am delighted that we decided to stay at Cherry Holme. The welcome from Mike was wonderful and we were made to feel at home immediately.
we were room 4 and it looked over Ullswater. My first reaction on entering the room was 'Wow!' The king size bed was a wooden, carved head & tail board and the bedding was beautifully white. The wardrobe and chest of drawers were also what looked like oak. The furnishings were warm, homely and just perfect for the room. The shower room looked new and the shower had a great power to it. The toiletries were of a good quality.
Breakfast next morning, after a wonderful night's sleep, was plentiful and beautifully cooked. Also available were yogurts, cereals, fruit, croissants and fruit juice, as well as the full English or any part of it you wanted.
Although it is a bit more expensive than other B&Bs in the area, it is well worth paying the extra for this beautiful place. We will certainly be using Cherry Holme as a resting place when we go over to the Lakes again.

4/9/13 we stopped at cherry holme b&b because we were going to a wedding the day after and had to be there early. my wife and i were made to feel very welcome from the start, we had arrived earlier than planned but this was no problem to our host. It was a very nice and clean and a very friendly. We had a very nice breakfast as i can be quite fussy with my food i really enjoyed it. I will be going again sometime in the future and would give it five stars. A very big thank you to our hosts

Room Tip: sure you would have no problem with any

The main positive of this B&B are the owners who are thoughtful and accommodating. Both were happy to chat but not so overbearing to be intrusive. We stayed 5 nights and had a lake view room. A bottle of wine in the room was a nice touch. Bed was comfy and bathroom was modern with a lovely power shower.

Breakfast was top notch and you could have a combination of different items, nothing was too much trouble.

Now for my only gripe. I found the walls a tad thin and could hear people talking. This wasn't a massive problem as most other guests were in bed by 2300hrs. However on my last night the couple in the room below had left their bathroom light on when they went out and I could hear the extractor fan in our room. As I wanted an early night I couldn't sleep until they returned and turned the light off around 2330hrs only for it to be on constantly when they got up again at 7am! As a light sleeper this sort of thing really bugs me but overall I wouldn't let this minor thing put you off booking!
