Our second stay at the Glen. Every bit as delightful as our first. Bill and Pauline are the most friendly and polite hosts you could hope for. We stayed in room 2 which has some extra space which is much appreciated. The breakfasts are delicious and there’s something for everyone. Can’t wait to return on our next trip to the Lakes

A very warm and friendly guest house. Pauline & Bill are excellent hosts, helpful, polite, friendly, plus make amazing breakfasts. The room we stayed in (2), was very clean, in excellent condition and spacious. We definitely intend to return. We didn’t really want to leave and can’t recommend any more highly.

We really loved staying at the Glen Guest House and we're really glad we chose it for a visit. It's extremely well located, clean and comfortable. Bill and Pauline were lovely, made us feel right at home for our short stay. They've obviously gone to an enormous effort to make sure the place is clean and safe to visit and seem to have thought of everything, but it never once comprised on the quality of our stay.
