We stayed one night here and it was perfect for our needs. Very clean and tidy and all we needed in the room, including a bottle opener! En suite was small but everything was in good order. Good choice of breakfast which was served quickly. Only comment was that the veg sausages were a bit odd - quorn ones taste...

This is such a well placed hotel. Russell and Julie made us feel so welcome and couldn't do enough for us. I had 2 stays in 2 weeks and was welcomed back for the second stay with a box of chocolates. The hotel is lovely, with the rooms spotlessly clean and well decorated. Breakfast was lovely with lots of choice....

We stayed for one night and hired two rooms, both were spotlessly clean and were really nice rooms. Russell and Julie were excellent hosts and the full English breakfast was fantastic, we would defiantly stay there again

Fantastic little guest house in a superb location close to the lake and resturants. Cosy room with everything you need. Lovely communal breakfast area with fresh cooked homemade breakfast (and really good coffee pots). Hosts were so friendly and did everything possible to make our stay memorable for all the right reasons. I even lost my watch in the room...

What a great stay! Only stayed for the 1 night but everything was perfect. Very friendly greeting, great clean and tidy room and a brilliant nights sleep. Even though we missed breakfast, Julie went the extra mile to make us fresh coffee and a bacon butty! Definitely will be returning.

After spending the weekend in Rydal for a yoga/hiking retreat I extended my holiday with another night in this wonderful B&B. I wished I could have stayed longer as Julie made me feel like it was home. She was so helpful and caring and we could have a proper natter with tea! Its location is absolutely perfect with walking distance...

Only two nights B&B, and wish we could have stayed longer. Excellent place to stay, very clean, comfortable rooms, superb breakfast and staff very friendly and helpful. Bit of a problem with car parking but none the less will certainly recommend and will be back.
