This home was adorable. The rooms were quaint and cozy. The bed was incredibly comfortable - slept like a baby. The staff were very accommodating. This place was great value - by far the best place to stay in Borrowdale.

We stayed for 3 nights in June. Carole greeted us on arrival and instantly made us feel welcome. We missed the pub food by 5 minutes but she made us a hearty snack with home made cake and rolls from the tea room opposite. The Riverside Bar stops food at 9pm so after a 6.5 hour drive from surrey this thoughtfullness was really appreciated. We had the twin room with two single beds next to each other, an ensuite and a lovely view over the fields of sheep to Cat Bells. Breakfast was very hearty and substantial- real bacon!! Even a vegetarian could be tempted to stray. I asked for a lighter option of srambled eggs/bacon and was happily accomodated. Packed lunches from the tea room were welcome as there is no other shop/cafe in Rosthwaite. A large roll,cake,crisps and water. just right. Carole chilled us a bottle of wine, we had brought with us, too to sit out and have in the tea room garden in the evening. Thankyou Carole. We liked the fact we could come and go freely with our own key . All in all the sun shone ,we ate lots of cake ,walked miles and slept well. Great location for walks without having to jump in the car.

We just spent a very relaxing weekend here, on the way home we felt like we'd had a week's holiday we were so relaxed!
Very welcoming, very comfortable, lovely farmhouse bedroom, en suite shower and WC, great breakfast, I'm on a special diet, which was no problem whatsoever. Big area inside the front door for leaving muddy/wet footwear. We're definitely going back again!

Room Tip: Only been once and tried one room, double bed, en suite shower and WC, I think the other guests were...

The title says it all.
We enjoyed a two night stay and this fitted the bill.
Our room was a wee bit cold but the bed was superb and once in we were as warm as toast.
The comfortable lounge downstairs with it's natural look 'gas' fire was great for catching up on emails/browsing the web on the free WIFI.
The breakfast was great, both in quality, quantity and choice.
Our welcome was friendly too.
What would make it a 5*? Flexibility around breakfast time. After a hard weeks work 08:45 was great this weekend, however in the Summer with Scafell Pike waiting, maybe an earlier option would be appreciated.
Another reason to stay is that this location is ideal for a huge variety of walks from the Yew Tree doorstep! Level and gentle, to uphill and challenging fell walks.
Dont forget the Flock-Inn cafe either, the food is very good and a showcase for their very tasty lamb, reared on the fields close by.

Review written in the context of undertaking Wainwright’s Coast to Coast Walk. Accommodation arranged by Macs Adventures.On the route. Most unwelcoming landlady of the whole three weeks – unfortunately as it is a lovely old farmhouse which is beautifully furnished. Perhaps the National Trust who own it should do a “secret shopper” visit. No evening meal but a local pub (Scafell Hotel) only a few minutes away. Good breakfast (not served by the landlady) at a shared single table. Breakfast at 0845 spot on (“Breakfast at 8:44 – I say that because everyone remembers it better than 8:45”), too late really for most Coast-to-Coasters. Comfortable separate lounge. Bedroom comfortable.

Stayed as family of four on C2C walk. Comfortable quirky rooms with lots of charm and character. Breakfast was a 8.45am which was OK for us but could be too late for other walkers. Breakfast was the nicest on our whole walk with excellent sausages and a good packed lunch.
