When major England sporting teams go away for a World Cup, they’re always ensconced in a relaxing, beautiful retreat to take their minds off the tournament pressures ahead. So it was with my assault on the World Gurning Championships at the notorious Egremont Crab Fair. WHISTLING JACKS - a remote hamlet within a short drive of St Bees - is...

St Bees is lovely, plenty of nice places to eat. The beach is a short...

We had the most perfect weekend at Whistling Jacks. We hired it out as a surprise for my sisters hen party and the perfect layout lent itself perfectly to a fabulous party house. We hired a fabulous chef to cook for us one night and had a walk into st. Bees on one of the afternoons. Beautiful scenery and a...

I've been to a lot of places around the country and nothing comes close to this place! First of all, the location is splendid, one of our favourite places to visit for long walks or just relaxing lounging around the beaches. Last time we visited was April 2012 (Feb 2013 was the earliest I could select), sorry I didn't write...

Kitchen was a pleasure to cook in, bedrooms were all well equipped and great size. Log burner was very welcome as it was getting colder outside but even without this...

What a gorgeous place. My sister booked this fantastic converted barn for 13 girls as a celebration for my 40th birthday and on arrival we were blown away. The standard is extremely high and all the rooms were spacious, decorated beautifully and all en suite. The owners live just across the road in case of any problems which in our...

We found this 'little gem' whilst looking for places to stay near St.Bees where we were attending a wedding on 2nd June. When we looked up the reviews prior to booking we were amazed by all the positive comments. We were extremely lucky as our party consisted of 2 adults, 1 adult and 2 children & 2 adults and 2...

Beautiful place, beautiful accomodation and wonderfully hospitable owners. Even our request for a 6:45 breakfast didn't break the smile on Mark's face. Great value! Would thoroughly recommend to anyone visiting the area and would definately use again if I'm back up that way. Wish we could have stayed longer!
