We undertook a driving holiday, mainly of Scotland, from Heathrow airport, where we landed and hired a car, up as far north as the Orkney Islands and back again. We stayed primarily at bed & breakfasts found over the internet, checked out via Tripadvisor where possible.
This was an interesting building – an old farm house shaped like a fiddle (violin), dating back to 1709. However, it has been modernised inside and is comfortable. The breakfast room is very sunny, with large glass doors looking outside. The home-cooked breakfast was good.
Our room was perhaps a little dark, but large with a modern ensuite. There’s coffee/tea, TV and comfortable bed. Parking is available, and we used it as a base to see Hadrian’s Wall and the northern part of the Lakes District (including the new James Bond Museum at Keswick).
My wife, particularly, liked Fiddleback Farm, and we’d have no hesitation in returning if looking for B & B accommodation in the Carlisle area.
