Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We really enjoyed our stay at the property. The quality and comfort were both to a very high standard. Breakfast was also great with a fresh fruit salad every morning in addition to the cereal, cooked and toast options. One of the best properties I have stayed in. Only issue is no on-site parking (but that is the same for most B&B’s in the area. There are some additional overnight spaces available and as long as you move the car before 10am you are fine parking overnight. Very quiet location but just a few minutes walk to either the town centre or Derwent Water via the footpath next to St John’s Church, so a really good base for either local walks or driving further afield.
