As always, a lovely warm welcome from James & Ruth. They were very brave to accept our booking of 10 guys for 4 nights however they did a perfect job of accommodating and feeding us during our stay.

We have just returned from a wonderful 3 day stay at Cumbria House. It is well located with only a short walk to the town. We had room 8 which overlooked the church and lovely views of the mountains.

Four of us (2 couples) fancied a walking break in the lakes over a long weekend and we wanted something close to the town centre, with good food. Cumbria House seemed perfect and is perfect. Run by lovely friendly couple Ruth and James who own the place. They made our stay very relaxing after long walks in the beautiful countryside....

This is our 4th and my brother's 20th stay at Cumbria House but the first with new owners James and Ruth. We certainly weren't disappointed. James and Ruth are great hosts, really welcoming and have made some nice changes to the decor and breakfast menu. Thanks for a lovely stay and see you again.

Recently refurbished with new very comfortable beds, new carpets and floors. Extremely comprehensive breakfast menu with first class service. Close to St John's Curch within a few minutes walk of the theatre, cinema and town centre. Wonderful views from our spacious 4th floor room, making the stairs worth the climb.
