About the hotel
If there is one thing that attracts people to the Lake District it is that calm pastoral beauty which has proven to be the inspiration of poets, artists and everyone who appreciates such simple pleasures in life. At the edge of the Wasdale valley just 15 minutes drive from Wastwater - Englands deepest lake, BRITAINS FAVOURITE VIEW and Scafell Pike - Englands highest mountain is a former C of E School dating back to 1856 and now a quality adults only B and B, which manages to combine some of the great scenic views of the valley from a vantage point of a wonderfully quiet location. With high and low level walks easily accessible from the house it is the ideal location for a break away from it all.
Having only two en-suite bedrooms which are warm and comfortable and lovingly decorated using Laura Ashley wallcoverings and fabrics you are assured of our personal attention. We have focused on quality rather than quantity and both rooms offer deluxe lavender infused Egyptian cotton bedlinen, quality duvets and pillows, fluffy bathrobes, towels and slippers - your comfort is our utmost priority. We provide quality toiletries and our hospitality tray consists of freshly ground & instant coffee, regular & speciality teas, hot chocolate & home made cake. Fresh flowers, chocolate strawberries & sweets are also provided. Our wonderful AGA cooked Lakeland breakfast is served in our Garden Room using fresh local produce. Muncaster Fell and the Wasdale Valley fells are visible from the house and we encourage the use of our garden and patio area to enjoy weather permitting. Betty's a one bedroomed self contained annexe to the house has amazing views from every window, we do welcome a small/medium well behaved dog by prior arrangement. TO BOOK BETTYS CALL DIRECT - NOT AVAILABLE TO BOOK ONLINE. **PLEASE NOTE** This Bed and Breakfast has two resident cats and a dog. The cats and dogs will not be in the guest rooms at any time.

Very friendly welcoming place to stay
Our stay was nothing but excellent from arrival to departure.
Lesley and John how own the Old School B&B have thought of every little detail that made our stay feel special. Both are welcoming plus have great knowledge of the area where to visit have meals etc. We will be returning hopefully for a longer stay.
The Old School
I rarely bother to comment on accommodation but the old school run by Leslie and John more than warrants a mention.
I have stayed in hotels and b+b's all over the country for almost 20 years and would probably only use about 5 which i would happily take the family too. It has everything outstanding accommodation needs, large comfortable beds, hot showers in a well appointed bathroom it is ideally located for work at (sellafield) or walking for recreation. The breakfast is large and well cooked with quality ingredients. A true hidden gem.
