Lovely guest house with lovely, friendly and welcoming proprietors. Breakfast was more than adequate. Rooms comfortable, warm and very clean. Mattress on bed was a little firm for my liking personally, but hubby had no problems with this. Would definitely visit again.

Loved it! Quality bedding, hot shower, terrific breakfast and brilliant hosts. Richard is a mountain leader and his son George is a member of the Mountain Rescue Team, there's not much they don't know about the Lake District! They are always happy to advise on routes and Karen's breakfasts are perfect. We'll be back!
