“Proper Cumbrian hospitality”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

My two pals and I booked in for a Friday and Saturday night so we could celebrate our collective 40th birthdays with a good walk and a visit to the Hawkshead Brewery. The B&B was immaculate, the landlady welcoming and the prices very reasonable. None of us could find a single thing to complain about; the rooms were clean,bright and warm, the breakfasts were well cooked and filling and we were even able to borrow an OS map for our poorly planned walk. We are about to book for next year's beer festival and I have every intention of going back this year with the missus and bairn. Top quality at proper prices, need I say more? Btw, Anne is clearly made to be a B&B landlady; stop over and you'll see exactly what I mean.

Room Tip: Re above - there is no swimming pool or fitness centre but if there were they'd be bloody marvel...

I stayed here before going mountain biking in the area. Really lovely and friendly reception and comfortable room, and massive breakfast. As I was having to drive back to Yorkshire after mountain biking the Landlady very kindly let me come back to the guest house to shower and change at no extra charge. That is what I call good northern hospitality.The building is a fascinating old row of cottages with great views of the surrounding hills.

When my wife booked the reservation for me and my two friends Ann did not want a deposit - she just said she was looking forward to three very tired walkers turning up!! Well one of the walkers had dropped out on day 5 but two of us turned up very late in the evening. My wife had telephoned Ann to say that my friend and I would be calling in somewhere for a meal before getting to her establishment. The walk turned out to be a long day in the great outdoors - we ended up in Staveley at her door soaking wet and it had been too ,late for to buy any much needed energy giving food. Ann took all this in her stride - saw us to our rooms - gave us time to have a much needed shower before serving us up an impromptu meal - which was brilliant. The breakfast was spot on just what was needed for the final push to Bowness. A great place to stay - Ann is quite a character who will cheer you up however tired you are.

Room Tip: The twin bedded room we had was very nice - the unoccupied double room across from our room looked l...

After a very wet start on Saturday morning we were a little down hearted to think we may be going to more rain in the lake district. Not so, once into Cumbria the sun came out and was really beautiful. On arrival we were warmly welcomed and made to feel at home, nothing too much and very informative. The room was large and very pleasant with a lovely view to the backdrop of the hills. Breakfast was more than enough and made a good start to the day. We will certainly come back and also recommend to our friends.

Room Tip: We had a twin room which was really quite large

Having just spend 3 wet days walking in the Staveley/Kentmere area I can honestly say the best part was the accomodation. Anne and Tony were the best hosts we have yet had, nothing was to much trouble for them and on 2 days they were kind enough to give us a lift to our starting point for the day.

The 16th century ex-farmhouse is ideally situated for the main road and the local rail station (about 5mins walk) and the bus stop is just a moments walk away. The rooms are spacious, well laidout and immaculate in every way and have all the usual items one would expect in a B&B of such high standards, we had one of the 2 en-suite rooms and were delighted, other rooms are available and the loft room looked lovely...

Breakfast was a hearty event, beautifully cooked english and top quality, plenty of options available!..a real start to the day. In the evening a lovely hot brew appeared for us moments after our soggy return from the fells.

Overall I would highly recommend staying with Anne and Tony if you are visiting the Staveley/Kentmere area as the local knowledge displayed by them is priceless when wondering what to do and where to go for food and entertainment.

We have already booked to go back in the spring.....
