Very friendly and welcoming,lovely clean rooms, and fantastic cooked breakfast. This is a great B & B,handy for Ulverston about 1 mile away, bus stop across the road or a taxi for £4-5. Great walks nearby and the added bonus of a pub next door!

We had a really friendly welcome from the owners and the rooms were immaculately warm and clean and not full of clutter as in some places! Although it's on the main road from Ulverston to Barrow it has its own parking and isn't noisy at all. Breakfast was very good quality and beautifully presented. The pub next door (the Miners...

Absolutely delightful. Warm welcome, immaculate and comfortable room. Free WiFi (hotel chains please note!!). Excellent breakfast and friendly service - everything a Bed and breakfast should be. Some traffic noise from busy main road, but not too troublesome.

We loved our stay at Red Lion House. A very comfortable bed in a lovely room- immaculately kept and clean. We had a lovely cooked breakfast in the morning too (as well as a continental one!!) Joanna and Eric were very warm and friendly and made us feel at home. Thank you!

Stayed here recently when visiting a friend. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated with a spacious bathroom. The owner was very friendly and even took us into town as we were in a rush, rather than us ringing a taxi. The breakfast the next morning was very nice. Definitely will be back.
