We stayed in the barn suite on Saturday with our 10 year old twin boys, on arrival Dave was extremely helpful in advising the suitable places to go with a young family for our evening meal. The barn suite was perfect for us and the kids loved stopping in a "barn". Lots of nice little touches including a small note... More

This is a great place to spend some nights if you love the outdoors, countryside and fresh air. Run by a British-Chinese couple who also have an adorable daughter who shyly hid behind her dad when being introduced, this place was just what we needed after a hectic car ride all the way down from Edinburgh. It does have a... More

Stayed there for 5 nights in August in an upstairs room with en-suite. Room and en suite had all amenities and was clean; however the room was very small which made it tight for suitcases, etc. This did not detract from the B&B as its location was great for Lake Windermere and surrounding attractions. We travelled widely during our stay... More

Lovely location so peaceful, nice clean room with stunning views although it was extremely small and the shower was also a squeeze as it was so small. Friendly staff and the owner was very polite Breakfast was average but over all a nice stay for the price. Would go back in the future with a different room choice.

Dear Guest The description of all of the rooms are accurate. The room choice you purchased was and the least cost and that being the smallest room . Had you chosen other - larger rooms at higher cost these would have provided both larger space and more amenities. Like every establishment we offer suits, executive rooms to standard rooms . More
