This was our second stay at this fantastic little, professionally run B&B. All the things that you would expect from a B&B are are provided, but it is the little personal extras that really show the passion of the proprietors. From the Aga cooked, locally sourced breakfast that is simply amazing, to the home made jams and yogurts, and the...

I stayed here for two nights, in September, while visiting the Outward Bound school in Eskdale Green. The Bay Horse offers comfortable accommodation with a spectacularly good breakfast cooked in an Aga oven. The hosts are friendly and helpful beyond the call of duty. Ravenglass is an unusual, even strange, little village quite unlike anywhere else I have been. Its...

I chose to stay here when I went to Workington as accommodation there was so expensive- £55 for somewhere with mixed reviews and miles out of town. This seemed a much better option, 25 miles away but excellent trip advisor reviews, only £40 a night and in a nice looking location. It turned out to be a great decision. From...

Had the pleasure of a weekend stay at this lovely B&B. Room was beautiful and the hosts were fabulous and couldn't have been more helpful. A lovely setting for this B&B in the Main Street, easily accessible for all amenities. Will definitely return.

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay at The Bay Horse. We've already recommended it to our family and friends and look forward to revisiting. I agree with the other positive reviews, having the cosiness of a cottage with the luxury of a posh hotel. The Ratty Arms pub is a short walk away for well priced meals and a...
