“Smashing wee place!”
Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

Nice welcome. Stayed 1 night on way back to Glasgow from Cornwall. Got a lovely big family room. Very clean, very nice owners. Breakfast piping hot, bath robes and slippers and homemade biscuits and no problem getting my green tea! Will recommend!!!!

What's not to love about The Square House - the perfect location, the warm and hearty welcome, the most comfortable bed I've slept in apart from my own, beautiful bed linen, wonderfully fluffy towels and bath robes, the roll-top bath, the attention to detail, oh and did I mention the amazing breakfast? Alyson and Bob have missed nothing out when it comes to delivering outstanding hospitality. And what's more, I'll be staying there a few more times over the next year! Thanks Alyson and Bob for making my stay feel like a home from home.

Lovely welcome; excellent room that had been beautifully decorated and equipped; first class bathroom; and wonderful breakfast ... what more could we ask for? Alyson and Bob should be proud of their renovations and they deserve to do well.

The Square House was recommended to us by a friend and what an excellent recommendation. Alyson and Bob were friendly and welcoming. We stayed in the family room which was enormous and extremely comfortable. The atmosphere is very relaxed and we had a very comfortable stay. We were asked what time we would like breakfast and the breakfast was one of the best I have had for a long time. Everything is freshly cooked and piping hot.
We will definitely book here again (tried for a fortnight's time but fully booked and we can see why).

From the moment you enter the Square house, you know you are going to have a lovely stay. We were shown our double room and WOW what a room. The attention to detail is second to none - so unique and yet so homely. Then we saw the bathroom - Well what can a say - The bath room was spacious and the bath was to die for - lovely roll top bath. The breakfast was fantastic - nice fresh berries, yogurt, cereals, followed by full english, which was cooked to perfection. I don't normally bother with commenting on hotels or B&B, but I'd just had to let everyone know what their missing.

Thank you Bob and Alyson.

We selected the Square House mainly because it provided a super kingsize bed being a bit of a tall chap, On arrival we were met by Alyson and Bob who were so welcoming. We were shown to the family room which had the requisite bed and two singles. The room therefore has three beds but due to the size of the room there is loads of space. The bathroom is absolutely brill and again of good size. Now we get to the breakfast - if one is the lover of a full English breakfast, fill yer boots. There are the usual cereals but this accompanied by lovely fresh fruit but the cooked breakfast is the best I have experienced in my 56 soon to be 57 years. The black pudding being the best I've ever tasted. On speaking to Alyson and Bob they state that the breakfast is local produce even down to the free range eggs (gorgeous). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be doing the same to family and friends. We will be returning again very soon for another dose. Had a sneak look at the adjacent room which was also beautifully presented. Book early though there are only two rooms!!!

Bob and Alyson are great hosts.


Overall an experience I would recommend.

I arrived at Square House for a 2 day break with my girlfriend, and was met with a great warm welcome from Bob and Alyson. The house is a lovely Georgian building with plenty of character.
Our room was the double, and was the best B&B room I've stayed in. All the extras were provided, including dressing gowns and slippers! We had our own bathroom with big stand alone bath. Everything was spotless, and the room was designed to an extremely high standard. It was a great location to explore from...could get all around the Lakes and Fylde coast and Lune Valley.
We had a great sleep, the beds were very comfortable.
However the best was yet to come! Breakfast was immense, every angle was covered. A full cooked breakfast with all the trimmings...fresh fruit, cereal and good coffee and home made jams. All served by a smiling Bob, who couldn't do enough to help.
Would certainly return to stay here as we thought it was extremely good value.
