“Faultless”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Everything about our stay here was lovely. Me and my boyfriend stayed for one night inbetween travelling the lake district. We stayed in the Copper room and it was lush, decorated in such a cosey and homely way, the bath way amazing, perfect to relax after a long day walking. We had dinner there and after speaking to the very lovely owner Sue before we went she got a chef in specially (usually no chef on a Sunday) The food was amazing, perfect portions, very tasty and served beautifully. Afterwards we relaxed in the conservatory which again was so comfy we could of stayed there all night. We had a lovely nights sleep in the big, well presented bed and didn't want to leave. On leaving however we received a lovely goody bag with bottles of water and sweets for our journey home which was a lovely touch. Would definitely recommend and go back again for sure.

This is a beautiful little B and B, excellent location and superbly presented inside and out. I stayed for just one night before climbing Scarfell Pike the following day. Its approximately 35 mins drive to Wasdale where the walk starts which is really handy and it's cheaper than much lower quality B and B's slightly closer. The external is very well presented indeed and has off road parking. The inside is beautiful and very tastefully decorated. My fiancé and I stayed in the Glass Room which was lovely, again extremely tastefully decorated and really quite cosy for a romantic weekend. The breakfast was lovely, I had a full English and my fiancé had boiled eggs, both lovely. Fresh coffee, warm croissants with jam, fresh fruit and orange juice and well. I suppose what makes this place stand out most is the warm welcome and general attentiveness of the owner Sue and the chef Matt. Both extremely warm, giving and eager to make sure you have a wonderful stay. Highly recommended.

I arrived at 1am and on arrival I was given a warm welcome from Sue. Nothing was too much trouble from that moment until I left. I would recommend Littlebeck Warren whether it is a late night stay through business or a relaxing break and the breakfast is something else.

We were going to stay in Keswick to explore the lakes, but we decided to make the extra 20 mile trip to Littlebeck Warren due to its good reviews on here and we were glad we did.We stayed in the Glass room for two nights, which is the smallest room they have. That wasn't an issue as it was big enough, well decorated, had a good self contained shower and a really comfortable and large double bed. The room was spotlessly clean, as was the rest of building.The only issue we had with the room was that it didn't have a wardrobe.Breakfasts were outstanding. Large and varied, as well as full English, haddock and salmon were also available.Owner Sue prepares the breakfasts and it's obvious she puts a lot of effort into getting it right. Other staff were similarly cheerful and helpful. We had an evening meal there, £21 for three courses, and it was excellent. As good, if not better, than the meal we had at Zeffirelli's in Ambleside the previous night.

I tagged along on my hubby's business trip to the West Lakes area and when looking for somewhere within his budget to stay, Littlebeck Warren's exceptional reviews stood out. He booked the day before using an online booking agency and requested a super-king room. Whitehaven is approximately ten minutes drive away, Cockermouth a little further.

Our late arrival (9.30pm) didn't faze Sue, the owner. She quickly showed us around the bar, breakfast room and sun lounge. In the bar Sue was equally happy to serve us or for us to help ourselves and note down what we had, she let us know breakfast arrangements (if you want her breakfast specials she asks that you let her know the night before), and took us to our allocated room; The Copper Room. The B&B is located on a quiet residential road and there is parking in front for 4 or 5 cars.

The Copper Room itself is very large and can be a twin or super-king room. Robes are provided and slippers are available too if required. There is a wall-mounted TV with DVD and ipod dock. DVDs can be borrowed from Sue's stock in the sun lounge. Tea and coffee making facilities are provided in the room. The room was well heated with a radiator we could control with a thermostatic valve. The furniture and soft furnishings were high-quality and the room had a luxurious feel to it.

The bathroom consisted of toilet and basin, the large double-ended copper bathtub where you can have a shoulders-deep bath (yes, it is big enough for two) and a huge double shower area. Toiletries of every kind are supplied in case you have forgotted anything and there was no lack of hot water during our stay. The bed was large and comfortable and we had no issues with noise from other guests, outside etc.; a really peaceful nights sleep.

Breakfast consisted of various cereal options, a fresh fruit platter (strawberries, kiwi, pineapple, melon, grapes etc), pastries, bread, toast etc. Freshly squeezed orange juice, various fruit or herb teas, breakfast tea and coffee. English breakfast offered the usual choices, plus eggs cooked to your preference, cumberland sausage, black and white pudding, mushrooms, baked beans etc. all freshly made to order and nicely presented. Pre-orderable breakfast specials included smoked salmon with scrambled eggs, kippers, various omelettes etc. My husband made the error of piercing one of his breakfast tomatoes and squirting juice on his clean shirt - Sue offered immediately to launder and dry if for him if needed.

On check-out after our all-too-brief stay Sue provided us with a goodie bag containing sweets and a bottle of water each for our journey.

Because Littlebeck Warren has only five rooms Sue is able to offer a very personal and exceptional level of service. The bedroom and the public areas were very clean and tidy and are furnished to a high standard. Sue also now has a chef and is able to offer evening meals by arrangement although we had already eaten before check in, I have no doubt these will be of the same high-quality as everything else.

I know my husband will definitely use Littlebeck Warren again if he travels to the area and he took a couple of leaflets to give to his colleagues who also visit the West Lakes area on business. For around £10 more than a stay in a Premier Inn in the area (if you add in breakast charge) we felt like we'd had a luxury stay in a very good hotel.

Room Tip: The 'super-king' rooms seem to have zip-together singles so can be either twin or double bed...

We had two nights in the fabulous wooden room at Littlebeck Warren and loved every minute. Sue is a wonderful host and all the staff were smiley and friendly and looked after us so well. The room itself was very comfy and beautifully-decorated. Breakfast was superb! All the little extras were really appreciated, including our easter eggs! No hesitation in recommending this lovely B&B to everyone.
