Thank you so much for this lovely review. You both made the most of the weather and the area. The garden is full of apples which Alan is currently hauling in so he just needs to find something to do with them that is jam orientated! You were both so kind regarding our lovely cat Prince, it really was above... More

The room was spacious and a very comfortable bed; I fractured my back previously and I could wake up with no stiffness on them. The bath was delightful and the shower pressure was fine but it took a while to fill the bath but it was worth waiting for as it was so pleasant. The b&b was beautiful but we... More

The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The room was beautiful. Breakfast was very nice and served in a delightful setting. This makes a great base location to explore the Lake District - including Scafell Pike.

Disappointed with how we were treated at this B&B. After a long car journey we arrived to be treated with disrespect by the host Alan, who spoke to us in an extremely condescending manner.

The B&B itself is beautiful - amazing rooms, decor and the garden. The problem I found was the hosting. We visited in a small group of 6 (25-30 years of age). I admit we all look younger but I was spoken to by Alan as if I were 5 years old. The rooms have a no external food eating policy.... More
