Thought I would revisit this b & b after my great experience before! Last time I stated it should be four star and now they are awarded what they deserve! The rooms are still as fresh and clean as last visited not tired in anyway, the breakfast was even better than I remembered and nothing was too much trouble for...

The Firgarth was the first b&b I have stayed and it has certainly set the bar high! Upon arrival we were greeted by host Pam who was so friendly and had so much information about the local area! This was fantastic as the places recommended to us were perfect, even with the bad weather! We were also offered tea or...

My partner and I stayed here towards the end of our 4 week trip in Europe and were a bit weary by this stage, my partner also had a pretty bad cold. The host who greeted us was informative and courteous but I wouldn't go as far as friendly. We did arrive late in the day so perhaps he was...

I will run through your comments as they have appeared in your review. As you stated you were weary when you arrived and also late, the fact that your partner had a bad cold may also had something to do with the fact that you didn't feel I was friendly, clearly my fault! Yes you were late when you eventually...

Friendly hosts,excellent food, cleanliness superb. Stayed here three nights and must say apart from seeing other guests at breakfast you would not know anyone else was there. We were in room 3 and did not hear hardly a sound. The double glazing copes well with any road noise and the room itself was spotless. The en-suite shone and the shower...

The Firgarth Guest House is an outstanding place to stay – lovely bedrooms (spotlessly clean), lovely atmosphere and lovely location. Windermere and Ambleside are just a short walk away, and Orrest Head (which is just on the doorstep) is well worth the short climb with lovely views of Lake Windermere and the Coniston fells at the top. Pam and Colin...
