The cottage is warm & welcoming. The rooms are comfortable with everything you need for a relaxing stay. Sue & David are great hosts and provide a lovely breakfast which sets you up for a day exploring the beautiful Lake District. Will definitely be back!

We have stayed in many places in the Lakes and this is top class! When we arrived Sue showed us to our lovely room then brought us tea and home made cake in the sitting room where there was a lovely real fire burning, very cozy! Both rooms are twins, en-suite and very comfortable. We had a good nights sleep.... More

Back in Borrowdale for Easter and it wouldn't be the same without Sue & Dave's lovely cottage. Warm, comfy, spotless, loads of hot water, scrummy breakfasts, great packed lunches (the envy of other walkers!) and good internet access. They are full of ideas of where to walk and what to do. In the mornings before a leisurely breakfast there's a... More

Lovely B&B in a great location. Short walk to bus stop and restaurants, we used the Borrowdale Hotel for an evening meal and it was good. Good breakfast, nice comfortable rooms everything spotless. Sue and David made us very welcome. Highly recommended.

My wife and I and our daughter and son in law stayed in September 2013. What a gem of a place to find. Sue and her husband really made us welcome. As other reviewers have said the rooms are great, the beds are comfortable and the whole place is spotless. Great place and good value

We stay here at least twice each year. We have never stayed at a better place. Not only are the owners friendly and considerate but the guest house is also of high quality and the setting is beautiful.

My wife and I with our son and a friend stayed at the cottage in March 2012, having chosen Borrowdale as a particularly impressive and beautiful part of the Lake District.
