Couldn't have wished for nicer or more helpful hosts. Always ready to offer advice on places we wanted to visit. Lovely location, not too far from local amenities and fairly central to tourist attractions. Rooms were well decorated and very comfortable. We stayed here for 7 nights and would highly recommend.

We stayed here on our trip to the Lake District in England one night. Wish we could have stayed longer. Both this place and Penrith deserved more time. Our hosts could not have been kinder, their guesthouse delightful. Room was spacious, clean, bright, and was ensuite. English breakfast was generous and the perfect way to start our day. Definitely going...

Doing the usual trick of forgetting my gear at the guest house, Peter and Cynthia returned my jacket promptly to my home...

Staying here as part of a coast to coast leg the guesthouse is situated near the main road into the centre although the property is well insulated from the noise. The accommodation was clean and bed very comfy with a tv and en suite. The breakfast was super tasty and served in the lower basement which was really enjoyable. The...

Had to make a last minute booking and had to turn up late, however had a very warm welcome and the Blue Swallow was extremely comfortable. Bedroom was presented well with attention to detail, including the tea / coffee selection and snacks. In the morning, the full English breakfast was exceptional. Highly recommended.
