Well presented and good value guesthouse. Landlady was very welcoming and provided scrummy banana bread. Full Breakfast was very tasty as well. Only two double rooms so you can expect personal attention during your stay.

Brough does not have many places to eat out. The Swanson House has to be booked in advance as everything is cooked to order. Book it! The food was lovely and although we could not get in for the first night, it was worth the wait.

Lovely B&B. Very warm welcome. Massive room and large comfy bed. Secure cycle storage. Beautifully cooked food. Best breakfast egg of the week with a deep yellow yolk. We didn't sample the bacon or sausages as we tend to find more than one full English per week a bit challenging. I suspect they would have been very good. A lovely...

We booked here for a one night stay and at last minute booked another night - I'm so glad we did. Pat and her daughter Emma were very friendly and Pat is an excellent chef.
