We enjoyed staying at Sunnyside. There's a lovely 1st floor lounge to relax in with a good coffee/hot chocolate machine at £1.50 a cup. The single bedrooms were comfortable, though our duvets kept escaping us in the night - a small double on single beds stops this problem. The owners were very friendly. The breakfast was good. An easy walk... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights last week and had a great time. The Sunnyside is on a quiet street but is only a few minutes walk away from the town centre. Our room (Room 5) was really nice: big, clean, welcoming and a pleasure to stay in. The lounge on the first floor is gorgeous too,... More

Sunnyside guest house was a wonderful experience,with great service and home like environment. Mr Shaun(owner) was the most humble and down to earth person I ever met, he wanted his customers to be satisfied with their needs. The guest house it's self was very spacious and very unique. There was one problem though, the curtains were quiet old and must... More

Thank you for your kind review, we were happy to offer you hospitality. There was nothing wrong with the heavy, expensive curtains in the room you had. It was simply a combination of unfamiliarity, maybe and over enthusiastic application of energy which brought them crashing down. You will be pleased to hear that all was returned to a sound condition... More

Thanks to Sean and Anne for a great 2 night stay.. All of our rooms where of a high standard, very clean, beautiful fluffy white towels in the bathrooms.

Had another wonderful stay and everything was as always outstanding. Really comfortable room, exceptional hosts and the best breakfast available in the Lake District. Thoroughly enjoyable. We'll be back for the 15th year on the trot next year which says it all.

Great location, off street parking, spotlessly clean, good breakfasts cooked to order and very welcoming hosts = lovely place to stay!! Just back from a long weekend here and would highly recommend as it is one of the best B&B's I have had the pleasure of visiting in a very long time.
