An absolutely outstanding experience staying at The Bybeck. The room was exceptional, well equipped and the facilities second to none. Breakfast was superb with any requirements happily met.

Lured by the excellent trip advisor rating we decided to spend four nights at David and Marilyn's place. David replied to my email request almost instantly, not only to confirm our reservation, but also to comment on our blog (on economic policy issues - mostly on Switzerland, in German). The email exchanges felt like chatting with a friend - long...

We've stayed in a lot of B & Bs in our time but this one wins hands down we think. The location is beautiful (2 tearooms next door and a short walk from cat bells and Derwent Water). The house is spotlessly clean and tidy and David and Marilyn are the most congenial hosts you could wish for. We felt...

We had the good fortune of meeting David and Marilyn during our travels through Italy in 2010 and made a mental note to visit their Bed and Breakfast if ever we had the chance of travelling to the UK. This past September, we were blessed to experience the UK and more particularly the Lake District. We loved our stay with...

This was our second visit to bybeck, and it was like visiting friends & family. The welcome from Marilyn and David was as ever, extremely warm and sincere. It really is a home from home, with cleaniness second to none. The breakfasts too (not forgetting the all important Drop-scones!!) are top drawer, and set you up for a day on...

“We had the twin room as the double was booked but we did not mind as we loved the comfy chairs with coffee table as they looked out the window towards the twin hump backed bridge and river and we could watch the world go by. Very relaxing.”
