We only stayed one night but loved the Kelly apartment. So much history through every window and in every corner. The hosts were so welcoming and the breakfast with home made damson jam was delicious. We would definitely stay at Johnby Hall again.

Just returned from 2 nights in this fantastic 1603 annexe of Johnby Hall. Very comfortable, homely and ideal for a break away from modern life. Free wifi is excellent, bed and furniture very comfortable. 7 stone steps to get through the door, and another 4 to the accommodation level. The photos on the website are exactly what you get. Local pub 1 mile away, very friendly and great food. Another nice pub on the road to Penrith (Crickhin Inn?) is really friendly and does food. Both are pet friendly. Tip- the directions mention taking the left fork at the cycle shop. There's no cycle shop to be noticed, but you will see the road for Johnby branch off to the left. Just before the road noticably rises, look for the white gate and small sign for Johnby Hall. Lovely place. Would be happy to return. Nb- due to the Plandemic, cooked breakfasts are off at the moment. Instead, cereal, yoghurts, bread, butter, jams, orange juice, kettle, toaster, croissants and brioche are provided. Very tasty but no competition for a full English.

Looking for a place to stay on a long journey between Scotland and London, we decided to stay a little further north than usual to take in this gem of place which is full of history, rustic charm and is run by a friendly and highly intelligent family. This was not your usual B&B; the place resembles a castle and dates from the late 18th century. Consequently, it is full of character and lacks the coarse functionality of a motorway services (which we also considered). The family were very accomodating before we arrived and were waiting for us with homemade orange cake. We didn't just get a room, we got a very spacious bedroom and living room. The family set out a high chair in the living room and travel cot in the bedroom for our 14 month old son. It felt super cosy and we slept very well under several layers of blankets as it was a bit cold being January but we were expecting it in an old stone building so we did not mind. The following morning, we had a sumptious breakfast in the drawing room served by the family and their children. Speaking to them, we found out mum and dad have both got PhDs and it was a fascinating chat. Their two children helped with serving the breakfast which included free range eggs and pork from the onsite farm. After breakfast, Henry treated us to a tour of the new self-catering accomodation they have recently had converted and showed us the pigs they are breading. It was the first time our son saw real pigs and piglets. All in all, it was a real treat to stay at Johnby Hall and we will be back as soon as we can.

I couldn't recommend Johnby more highly. Anna and Henry are superb hosts and the building itself is fascinating - it was wonderful to hear details about its history and to have the interesting nooks and crannies pointed out. The room was comfortable, scrupulously clean, and there were plenty of lovely toiletries provided in the bathroom. Breakfast in the hall on the first floor - feasting on Johnby sausages whilst surrounded by portraits and heraldry - was a highlight. It's so nice to find a dog-friendly property, too. Would definitely stay again!

We stopped in Johnby Hall on the way to Scotland and very glad we did. A beautiful property ran by lovely people. The bed was the most comfy I’ve slept in, breakfast amazing from their own sausages, bacon and jams. The breakfast room is something to behold, a 16th century hall, I felt like a king. Lovely dog walks in our own forest and red squirrels too!! We were made to feel very welcome, by the lovely Henry and a Anna (and Lucy their daughter). An absolute pleasure.
