When we arrived we were greeted by Heidi with the warmest of welcomes.
We had booked room 4 but I liked the look of room 3 and the Jacuzzi spa bath which was still available and asked if we could change.....no problems at all. Heidi showed us the room and even said that if at any point we were unhappy we could still move into room 4!
The room was beautifully decorated and very clean. There was a proper coffee machine and a small bottle of red wine for us. The bathroom was lovely and had lovely fluffy towels.
The breakfast was huge.....cereals, granola, fruit, yoghurts etc followed by a full Lake District breakfast and toast. The cooked breakfast could have been a little hotter but that would be my own well picky quibble about this place.
All the staff we helpful and friendly - nothing was too much trouble. If you need anything or think something is missing you just simply need to pop down stairs and ask! If you want a relaxing quiet get away I don't think you'll find anywhere better. I will definitely be returning and recommending this B&B.
The car park is around the back of the B&B and very safe. I've seen some negative comments about it being small......our car isn't small and we didn't have any problems and other cars in the car park were 4x4's. Yes its not huge, but your in the Lakes in a B&B, there really aren't any issues.
You leave your shoes down stairs so take slippers. This has allowed Heidi to keep lovely cream carpets and make it feel more homely.
