Thanks for your time in writing this review and the lovely comments you have made. We are a little disappointed we didn't get an excellent from you, instead of a very good. If you read my response, maybe you could get in touch and let Sue and I know where we could have improved. Thanks again for your review.

Fabulous guest house, we were made to feel very welcome throughout our stay. Breakfast was also excellent, very fresh and lots of choice. Rooms were very clean, with everything you needed for a lovely weekend stay. We could not recommend this guest house enough!

Myself and my boyfriend stayed in this wonderful b&b last weekend as a late birthday treat for me. We found Sue and Paul to be very welcoming. Our room, Kentmere, was absolutely spotless and very well equipped. The bathroom although on another level was gorgeous, clean as a whistle!! The toiletries were so nice too. And the breakfasts were gorgeous!!...

Stayed here after arranging as a Christmas present for fiance. Visited the lakes in the past but this B&B outweighed the others. Room was lovely with extra treats and owners were so friendly and gave great advice on places to go. Will definitely return.
