West Barn has to be one of the loveliest B&Bs I've ever stayed in. It's been beautifully restored and decorated by Sue and is situated in a very peaceful location off the beaten track. It was the perfect place for four of us to use as our base for exploring Coniston Water and Lake Windermere.
Sue is the perfect hostess: welcoming, friendly and extremely helpful. She's also a superb cook, as we discovered when we ate in on our first night. The Punchbowl down the road does good beer but the food isn't a patch on Sue's home cooking. Her breakfasts are terrific, too (we had no need for lunch on either of the two days we stayed) and Sue uses local and organic produce as much as possible.
I'll be recommending West Barn to friends and family and would definitely stay there again. Full marks from me!
