Ideally located for our walking weekend. Only two minutes walk from mainline Oxenholme station in pleasant quiet surroundings. Service was very friendly. Tracy advised us on the best local walks. Organized a taxi for an evening in Kendal and recommended a number of restaurants.
We liked the fact that breakfast was cooked to order - eggs just how I like them, plus a good selection of fruit and cereal. All very tasty.
The room was a good size, nicely decorated and presented, with lots of extras, plus a jacuzzi bath. Also, speedy WI-FI was available free of charge.
Admittedly I am one for reading trip advisor, rather than making entries, but this little gem is one not to be missed. I would definitely recommend this guesthouse to my friends.
