We stayed at The Westbourne for one night in the The Cottage Suite and it was beautiful. Service was great, Sue was very polite and helpful. The cottage is well decorated and very clean. The breakfast was wonderful and accommodated my dietary requirements well. Would highly recommend! We will be returning.

Comfortable, very clean establishment with attentive and helpful proprietors. Ideal for a nice little break - and so quiet. Modern with an old-world charm. Lovely dining room with a hearty breakfast. Easy access to all amenities. Recommended.

My boyfriend took me away for my birthday and we stayed in the cottage. It was so cosy and the place was decorated really well. We were welcomed by the staff, who were really friendly. I highly recommend this place for its hospitality and cosy feeling.

We have had a wonderful weekend at this lovely B&B. The house is so tastefully decorated and has such a welcoming relaxing atmosphere. The room we stayed in (room 6) had such a comfortable bed. The room decor again was very tasteful with cream and duck egg shades. The breakfast was delicious and the service from the lady so professional...

My boyfriend and I took a mini vaycay to the lake district and landed upon this amazing little b&b! The room was perfect and had everything we needed. The breakfast was delicious, and even cooked and served by the owners themselves! Great value, great location. We would definitely stay here again :)
