We booked here for a one night stay and at last minute booked another night - I'm so glad we did. Pat and her daughter Emma were very friendly and Pat is an excellent chef. We stayed in the twin room which was an ample size, very clean and had a good selection of hot drinks and mineral water. The...

We were given a warm welcome after arriving quite late. Warm and cosy room with twin beds. Modern and clean en-suite. Some nice individual touches...ground coffee/cafetiere/a couple of small home-made cakes/good quality bathrobes. Breakfast was extra £5 for continental with a generous amount for the various items. We parked outside the house, but there are some parking spaces at the...

Just spent a wonderful weekend at The Swanson House. Pat is the ultimate host and what a chef! We stayed in the double room which has an ensuite with a bath. Lovely decor and exceptionally clean. After a day spent walking up the hills and dales- it was wonderful to come back to a hot bath, a glass of cabernet...

Stayed here while completing the Lady Anne Way. Planning stages for this route was made so much easier by Pat's willingness to pick us up in mid-stage and take us back the next morning. That in fact sums up Swanson House where Pat willingly goes the extra mile for her guests in all areas whether it is transport, room comfort...

My wife and I decided on an impromptu last minute getaway up to Cumbria so I booked for one night here on the basis of the number of reviewers that had left excellent comments; and my expectations were surpassed. Pat gave us both a friendly and warm welcome, and cooked us the most amazing evening meal, which we had in...

Previous reviews seemed too good to be true..... But no! All spot on. Attention to detail is Pat's secret weapon - that and fantastic cooking! Warm and welcoming, Pat clearly cares about her guests' experience. We had the twin room, but a sneaky peak at the massive double left us wondering if we should have pushed the boat out -...

We stayed for three night's at Swanson House. We had a very warm and friendly welcome from Pat who showed us straight to our room which overlooked the high street in Brough. (although there was very little traffic) Room certainly had a wow factor with many of the lovely touches you would find in a boutique hotel. Breakfast and evening...

We stayed here for one night and Pat could not have made us more welcome. The hotel is in the main street but it is a tiny village and it was very quiet. We had dinner in the restaurant which was superb. The food was delicious and home made, we were even given hand made chocolates when we said we...
