Excellent hotel - recommended
I stayed one night for a leisure holiday cycling in the area.
Room was excellent, good size and the house and facilities good too. Location is easy to get to, near to the main road but quiet and easily accessible to Keswick. Breakfast was great as well with plenty of choice, good wifi access and plenty of information about local restaurants and services displayed in the room. Would certainly stay at again.
Will definitely be returning!!
Although there was a slight mixup with the booking Jordan made me feel very welcome, showing me to my room and preparing tea and biscuits in the lounge.
I was travelling alone but felt very relaxed in such a homely and comfortable accommodate. Would highly recommend this B&B and I shall be returning on my next trip to the Lakes.
