We were met by Gillian who gave us a very warm welcome and showed us to our rooms. The single room was particularly small but did have an ensuite with a good powerful shower, tea/coffee facilities and good wifi connection. There was no TV, but there was a very nice residents lounge with large screen TV. Breakfast was good and...

Gorgeous building, located in a beautiful area. Lovely sized room, ideal for us as a family of 4. The park opposite was a bonus! Wonderful friendly service from the owner. Conveniently just off of the m6 but lovely and quiet, you wouldnt know you were so close.

Comfortable and very convenient hostelry close to Junction 38 of the M6. Local pub with good beers and friendly banter. Welcoming hosts with a good hearty breakfast if required. Easy parking. Very reasonable room rates.

We stayed at the old school over the weekend for one night. We often visit the lakes at short notice and found this B&B to stay in. The building itself is beautiful and situated in a lovely location. My son was very excited to see there was a play area directly in front of the building. The decor is of...

Very friendly staff and excellent service. The accommodation isn't the Ritz but it is perfectly set to give you the homely cottage feel, who wants polished stainless steel and glass when visiting the lakes. Free WiFi, just minutes off motorway without the noise and excellent breakfast.

Perfect location for exploring the Lakes or breaking a journey to Scotland, this family run B&B offers excellent breakfasts, dinners and plenty of local knowledge of the area. Rooms are charming and having been back time and again over 10 years I would recommend all rooms.

Stayed here for a one night stopover during an End to end cycle ride. The owner were friendly, but the accommodation was fairly basic. Tea and coffee in room, but no extras such as biscuits or hairdryer. No TV in room, but guest lounge available. Single room really tiny.

We stopped here as one of our places on the coast to coast route. A quirky and homely abode where Steve and Joanne made us very welcome. The room was fairly small but clean and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious with much choice. Our friend's dog (who was travelling with us) was also made to feel very welcome. We were...

This is inexpensive and fairly basic accommodation. It's clean and very welcoming. We had a small double bedroom with a really comfortable bed and a good shower with plenty of hot water. All the basics were supplied like tea and coffee etc. Breakfast was absolutely fine. The owners were warm and friendly and knowledgeable about where to eat nearby. There's...
