Creaky floor boards, Aunt Mauds old dressing table in the room but a realisation that wifi is more important than toilet paper ( there was plenty of loo roll lol). For walkers just the perfect place. Homly & comfy with a first rate brekfast. Good hot showers and a warm sitting room if u fancied. We were 2 in a...

One was requiring close accommodation for business (3 nights)....... without the long journey in between and traffic chaos..... The accommodation was chosen after reading a number of Tripadvisors reviews... Beautiful building on arrival with plenty of character both inside and out.......A lovely couple who make you feel welcomed throughout your length of stay. The secret is in the name 'The...

Great welcome and hosts are very approachable and helpful. Free wifi available. No TV in the room but there is a big TV and lots of comfy chairs and sofas in the guest lounge. Decor is rather tired and dated. Road noise from M6 can be heard but we had chosen to stay here because it was convenient for the...

We booked the hotel for a one night stay after a family meal in the lakes. On arrival a little panic set in, the general feel is cluttered & basic. As we arrived late we headed straight to the room, with no TV and a mismatched furniture choice it raised an eyebrow or two. After a comfy night though and...

The price was so reasonable,i wasn't sure what to expect... What we got was a wonderful welcome (even at 10.45 at night!!) A clean, spacious and very comfortable room. Breakfast was delicious, and we even ordered sandwiches for the day. We will be back!!! Thank you Steve and Joanne for a lovely weekend

I was only on my way through, but thought to myself that I have to come back and stay in Tebay as it has got lovely and rarely visited hills in its back yard, far from the busy crowds of the Lakes and the owners are very friendly, the breakfast is delicious and they are dog friendly too.

Clean, comfortable and cosy with delicious gluten free food if required. Free wifi. Run by nice, friendly people. 2 minutes from the M6 J38 and perfectly situated for Kendal, Penrith and The Lake District. Highly recommended.

We stayed on our way back home in one of the family rooms. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. The room was large and had plenty of space for all of us. The bathroom by contrast was tiny and it was a struggle to get in and out of the shower. The shower had a timer button which only...

Lovely stay here. Very friendly, clean, and tasty breakfast. Spacious room. Very accommodating of our small baby! Would definitely go back. Great location for Cumbria or stop off on the way to Scotland as we were doing. Even had nutritional shakes for breakfast which my husband enjoyed indulging in!

Interesting place, full of contrasts, but overall I came away disappointed. Lovely building, but village isn't inspiring right beside M6. Room was clean and had had a lick of paint, but shower and heating were woeful. Bed looked quite new, but the quilt was only 2-3cm thick so combined with poor heating meant a chilly disturbed sleep. Owners were pleasant...
