I booked The Firgarth for a weekend away in the lakes with my girlfriend. On arrival Pam greeted us with smiles and hot drinks. We didn't know what to do in the lakes during our stay, as it was our first time so Pam offered some much needed advice. Pam gave us many leaflets and maps on attractions, walking trails...

Pam, the owner is fantastic: extremely friendly and helpful always offering guidance and advice on where to go, what to see. Breakfast was good and a lot of variety. Rooms are extremely tidy, clean and very well maintained. Everything you would ask for a B&B and more. The only con will be perhaps the fact that they need a better/new...
