Stayed for a night whilst needing accommodation in the area. Superb hospitality, great night sleep and breakfast was just right. Prefer to a hotel as it gives that homely feel. Many thanks Norah & Bob, Will stay again.

Had a great time in this lovely friendly family run B&B . The room (twin) was lovely and quiet . The dogs greet you as you arrive and instantly make you feel at home. Although my room was not enough suite,that didn't matter as the bathroom was only next door and was HUGE. The

We got a friendly welcome from Norah and Bob. The house is set quietly towards the end of a lane, so it's away from the main roads. Our spacious en-suite room was clean and tidy, with a comfortable bed, and plenty of tea and coffee! Interesting collection of birds and animals

I found the room quite uncomfortable - both the bed, but more so the lack of anything other than wicca chairs to sit on. The birds in the house were quite noisy as well (though not during the night, thankfully) - at first I thought it was some kind of alarm, quite distracting

We were astonished and disappointed by your review as you had not mentioned anything wrong during your brief stay with us. The "wicca" chairs are Lloyd Loom style wicker bedroom chairs, designed as occasional chairs for a bedroom. The bed and indeed the whole room has been described in previous reviews as very comfortable. Most guests find our parrot amusing and interesting but if you had wanted him moved from the hall we would have done so. As regards "being watched", this is our home, with a central hall, so it is impossible not to occasionally meet people as we live here. We have been described as friendly and welcoming, as are most Cumbrians. All in all I can honestly say that for 50 pounds you had sole use of a king size bed, en suite shower room, TV, refreshment tray and excellent breakfast which was great value for money.
