“Service Extraordinaire”
Reviewed 24 May 2013

I didn't have a reservation, only a phone number and a recollection from a Trip Advisor review I had read before leaving the US, but I called when I got into town and got lost. Sheila answered the phone, asked me where I was, and said to she'd be there in five minutes. Five minutes later, Sheila hops into the back seat of a strange car with a couple from Nebraska and gives us directions to her B&B. Wow, now that's Midwestern kind of friendly.
The room was nicely decorated, clean and the bathroom was new. Food was great in the morning. I couldn't have done better if I'd tried.

Room Tip: The only surprise was she only takes cash, but that was no problem.

This a fantastic guest house where nothing is of any bother to Shiella. Sheilla as a host was fantastic in advising on where to go and where to eat. The drive home was simply the best throughthe lakes to Penrith to the motorway. Great room and great breakfast. Why stay in a hotel?

Bridge House B&B is excellent; clean, warm and friendly. Our muddy clothes were washed,and we were given a recommendation for eating out which was super. Both our hosts were very helpful and this is the best B&B on the Dalesway. Thank you both (from the lady with the manky foot)!

We were walking the Dales Way, and Sheila picked us up from the route (a 10 mile drive, and we were waiting in the wrong place, but luckily she spotted us!). Exceptional service, and boy, we were not not disappointed when we arrived at Bridge House - lovely old building beside the railway (not noisy), with beautifully furnished rooms. Couldn't have been better. Breakfast was also a delight, after which she took us back to the Way to carry on our walk.
If we're ever back in Kendal, this is where we will stay.

First class , lovely room , excellent breakfast, home made bread jam etc, morning newspapers that personal touch you don't get at hotels from the minute that you arrive till the time you leave .Two minutes stroll from Kendal town centre via the River it was truly a wonderful experience .One that my wife and I highly recommend.no car parking but free parking available right across the street

We stayed at this B & B on our way back from a holiday in Scotland and were very happy with the quality of service we got. We arrived late Friday afternoon, so were very happy that we could be accommodated at such short notice. The room was neat, tidy and comfortable and the little extras, such as bottles of water and kendal mint cake were very thoughtful and much appreciated. Will come to how we slept later!! The breakfast was delicious, with home made bread, jams and marmalade and a good sized full english, with cereals, toast and fruit as additional options. We found Sheila to be very warm, friendly and accommodating and able to recommend things to do and see whilst in the area, so overall, we would easily be able to recommend this B & B to others.........however, there is one point that would stop this B & B from getting 10 out of 10- the chiming clock!! We were unaware of it until we were woken at three am by very loud chiming and then heard, four o'clock, five o' clock, six o' clock and seven o'clock chimed and then decided to admit defeat and get up! A shame and I am sure many people sleep through it, but it did feel like we had the clock in our room!

Room Tip: Ask where your room is in relation to the clock!

Sheila collected a wet and bedraggled pair of Dalesway walkers. What a great B & B. Spotlessly clean, great shower, comfy beds. The breakfast is the best! Good recommendations for eating out in the evening. Our wet clothes were washed and dried and we can not thank you enough.
