“A Hidden Gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2011

We stayed one night here on our way up to Edinburgh. Had a bit of fun finding it thanks to the sat-nav, but rang Maxine who talked us along the right route. What a beautiful Cottage. We arrived in the dark so it was well lit and welcoming. Our room was very cosy, beautifully furnished with a lovely ensuite, all new facilities.
We both slept well and in the morning were treated to a super full English Breakfast cooked by Victor. We cannot fault the hospitality, both Victor and Maxine made our brief stay with them very pleasurable. Highly recommended.

I can't hold the proprietors responsible for the miserable weather, but everything else was fine. The room, in particular, was presented to a very high standard. I had an excellent night's sleep (on my own in a double bed). It is easy to come on the bus from Kendal or Milnthorpe, and there is a wonderful walk along the edge of the salt marsh to Arnside for dinner (Fighting Cocks was fine for me).

I used to be a large hotel type person however give me a little B&B like this anytime. I do wish this was my house, close to the beautiful village of arnside. If you do get chance to stay you will love it

Room Tip: only two rooms we had the large one - lovely

Gorgeous first class accommodation, with beautiful gardens, and wonderful hospitality! We were made so welcome by Victor, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay - he was so welcoming, and cooked us a lovely breakfast.
The room was spotlessly clean, and very comfortable, with everything we needed for our stay. Such a shame we couldn't stay longer, and we will hopefully return for a longer stay very soon.
Would definitely recommend a stay in this superb accommodation!

Just back from a lovely rural treat on the edge of the Lake District. Plantation Cottage is a wonderful little B&B run by very friendly hosts Victor and Maxine. We stayed in a fab room with a corner bath. The cottage is beautifully decorated throughout with wooden beams and tasteful furnishings. We had a great brekfas including a vegitarian option. Will definitely be going back ! The cottage is approx a 5 min drive from Arnside, which overlooks the Morebambe estuary and has a nice prom. We enjoyed a lovely and plentiful meal at The Fighting Cocks, which was very reasonably priced.

We booked Plantation Cottage for a two night stay based on various reviews as standards, cleanliness, comfort etc are very important to us and we were definitely not disappointed. We stayed in a traditional room which had just been refurbished to a very high standard. We were made exceptionally welcome by two superb hosts and the breakfast was wonderful and served in a lovely dining room. Free internet was a plus so we could browse and book the next stage of our trip.

Perfect for access to dales and lake district. offroad parking and lovely room.
if I had to make a constructive comment a bigger bed or twin beds would be better, but that is my own personal choice.
Great stay, great hospitality and would certainly book again.
