Very nice place in a nice location and easy to reach the main tourists spots in the Lakes. I was the only guest because of the Covid19 situation, so very quiet, but hopefully that will soon change. Very good breakfast and a nice walk to the lake from the house.

What a wonderful wonderful place. The location is idyllic and the host Karen is a superwoman- a warm welcome and a hot fire and homemade cakes waiting after a day out. A delicious breakfast each morning. Clean and peaceful traditional property with beautiful grounds and breathtaking views.. just perfect.

By far the nicest place we have ever stayed - beautiful, period house with real fires. Excellent breakfasts with homemade bread and jams and a delicious three-course evening meal. A very comfortable bedroom with wonderful views over a beautiful garden and Skiddaw. We were made to feel so welcome the whole time we were staying and we cannot wait to return in a few weeks time for a longer stay. Value for money 11/10!
