Jim and Tine have an outstanding B&B. Consistently high quality, quiet rooms, wonderful breakfasts all homemade by Tine, lovely location immersed in nature but also 15mins to Penrith. Jim and Tine are very knowledgable about the region. A must stay if you visit the Lakes

Wonderful experience. Owners extremely welcoming and helpful. Rooms clean, comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was delicious. Off the beaten path but worth the find. Close enough to Keswick for visit and dining. Will recommend to our friends.
