Stayed at Laurel house overnight for a surprise break away for my Mum's birthday. The B&B was lovely! Nice friendly welcome as we walked up to the house, lovely fresh coffee on arrival and a surprise bottle of prosecco for my Mum. Jeff and Alex were great hosts with good recommendations of where to get a bite to eat on...

Another lovely weekend with Jeff & Alex this really is a 5 star b & b. Our 3rd visit. Very comfortable & superb breakfast. Where else would you find a hot water bottle in the bed on returning from a meal out. Hope to be back next year

Will certainly keep it in mind if we are in that area again. A lovely 18th century cottage in a pretty village only a few miles from Penrith. It was full of character and has been renovated inside still keeping lots of original features in place.

An excellent country location, good evening meals available in village. Close proximity to many tourist attractions. Alex and Jeff take care of all your needs, and we have never been served such a breakfast ever.
