Lesley and Neil were so welcoming, friendly and interesting. We arrived late but Neil stayed up to welcome us from the rain outside, he had put the heating on to warm up our room for when we entered, that was a lovely welcoming feeling, especially when the weather was so terrible outside. Breakfast was great!!! Our room had a beautiful...

If you love the Langdales then this B&B will make you want to extend your stay. It combines stunning views, the convenience of being right on the Cumbria Way, a choice of excellent rooms and owners who really know how to look after their guests. We enjoyed the choice of a comfortable lounge in which to relax or a garden...

We had a lovely time, our room was very clean and plenty big enough for the three of us with great views from the guest lounge. Nothing was too much trouble plus our son really enjoyed feeding the chickens.

A bed and Breakfast right in the heart of the fells with many walks as well as on route for walking the Cumbrian Way. The Guest House is very homely, provides an excellent breakfast by friendly and attentive hosts, Neil and Leslie. The rooms are freshly decorated and with modern fittings. In the winter snuggle up to the fire. There...

we only stayed the one night but would gladly have stayed longer. The House was once a farm and both the original house and several outbuildings now make up the accommodation. My own room was in the farmhouse and had the most stunning view across the Elterwater valley to the hills beyond. The place is comfortable, very well positioned, welcoming...

We had a wonderful stay at the Elterwater Park Country Guest House this past week. We were immediately made to feel at home with a tray of tea and cake upon arrival in the guest lounge overlooking the fells, with roosters and herdwick sheep roaming just feet from the window. We stayed in the Lingmoor Fell room and it had...

A group of us were walking the Cumbria Way and stayed at this home-from-home in the heart of Lakeland, complete with hens in the yard. The rooms are great and the location is unbeatable if you relish a quiet country farmhouse break (only a 20 min walk from the pubs in Skelwith Bridge). Neil and Lesley, the owners were really...

Highly recommended, about a mile to the nearest pub but the owners we're quite happy to ferry us (it took 3 trips). Fresh raspberries from the garden for breakfast, along with a great English Breaky. Very warm and welcoming and a lovely family business.

We thought we had arrived in Heaven. It was all perfect. Clean comfortable room with underfloor heating in the ensuite. Fabulous hosts whose cooking was excellent and who catered for our every need. A view of the Langdale pikes from my bed and the Cumbria Way literally on the doorstep. We will be back!!
