We have just returned from two nights stay with our charming host Sheila. The farmhouse, not far from Hawkshead and Ambleside is a charming and restful place to unwind with wonderful views. Breakfast was excellent, the sitting room with wood burner was warm and comfortable and our bedroom nicely furnished and spotlessly clean. we look forward to staying there again!

Everything about this little b&b was absolutely perfect. Sheila is wonderful, and so is her daughter, who kindly cooked us breakfast. Our room was stunning, all of the little touches made the whole experience even more special...all of the food and drink was of the highest quality. We were given lots of recommendations about walks and place to eat etc....

The farmhouse is gorgeous and is located out in farms, a few miles from Ambleside & Hawkshead. It's an incredibly peaceful area, and great to sleep with nothing but the sounds of nature out of your window. Sheila was great and made us feel incredibly welcome. The breakfast is what you'd expect from a B&B on a farm - top...

We don't usually stay in bed and breakfast accommodation but we will definitely try some more after having a great experience at this property.

There was even a fridge that guests could...

We pulled up at the small farm to a warm and friendly welcome. The accomodation adjoins the main house, so there are 3 guest rooms and a lovely communal living room, complete with cat! There is a great attention to detail that makes you feel very well looked after. The breakfast was delicious - as was the lemon drizzle cake!...
