“Excellent B & B, wonderful hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2013

This was a repeat visit for my partner & I. As ever, Joy &Phil were wonderful hosts. We stayed in the Blencathra suite, a large, comfortable room with wonderful views to the fells. Joy's breakfasts are amazing and Phil's suggestions for local walks are very useful if you're not familiar with the area. Claremont House is in it's own grounds, only a short walk from the town centre, so you don't have to drive everywhere. They even have their own red squirrels in the garden.

Room Tip: Blencathra if you want a huge bed you can get lost in :-)

After staying in one of their standard rooms last year, this year my partner and I, and the inlaws booked both feature rooms. From the moment you walk in the door you are greeted with a smile, and even better tea and cake! The rooms are lovely and clean with great views of the surrounding fells. The hosts were more than happy to save some of our days shopping in their fridge for us and nothing is too much to ask here, you really do feel at ease. Breakfast was spot on and all 4 of us will most definitely be back in the summer for a 3rd stay.

Room Tip: Feature rooms are worth the extra few pounds.

Myself and my husband stayed here over the New Year break for two nights and had a lovely stay. We stayed in the Fairfield room which has a four poster bed and was nice and spacious with a shower en suite.

The owners were really nice and made us feel really welcome and even taking the time to advise us on which walks were suitable for us novices and gave us a printed step by step guide for our walk up Latrigg.

Breakfast was superb and really filling, you have a choice of times and breakfasts to choose from and every table has its own toaster on which is a marvellous idea as you can just help yourself to crumpets and bread at your leisure.

On New Years Eve we had a box of Minstrels in our room and the option of a later breakfast time if we were feeling like having a lie in on News Years Day which was very thoughtful, I always find it's the little touches like this that makes a stay in a B&B that little bit more special.

This is a wonderful B&B, with fantastic hosts and a fabulous bedroom. I was blown away by the hospitality I was shown and the care, attention and desire that the owners showed to make my stay as pleasurable as possible. I highly recommend this as a place to stay if only for the magnificent cooked breakfast I had each morning.

We Stayed at Claremont House just before Christmas, we travelled as a couple and we couldn't of asked for a better break away!! The stay was so relaxed and Phil & Joy made us feel at home right away. We were given coffee and cake on arrival which was a lovely touch. I had an omelette on the second morning and would really recommend the mushroom one. My husband had the full English breakfast and he wasn't dis-appointed! All in all a lovely stay and we will be back next year. Thank you both and all the best for 2013.

I stayed at the Claremont with some friends during a trip to the Lake District and I was satisfied with my stay. The hosts were wonderful, very friendly and made us feel at home offering us tea and cake when we arrived. The room was nice and cosy. I would like to say it was spotlessly clean but I moved the bed and found some used paper tissues on the floor behind it. Also, the washbasin was in the room as the bathroom was too small, and it wasn't exactly a comfortable solution.
The breakfast was OK, plenty of choice of cooked food, not so much if you prefer a continental breakfast like myself. There was plenty of bread and crumpets, but not enough jam on the table (none on the buffet table). I saw a good selection of cereal, and some fruit. I appreciated that each table had its own toaster.
Overall, good value for money. The guest house is not in the town centre, but it's just a five minute ride if you have a car, and there's plenty of space to park. Would go back.

Thankyou for your review, pleased to see you would like to come back to Claremont House.
We pride ourselves on our breakfast menu, it is extensive and we ask in advance if anyone has any special dietry needs or requirements. We gladly try and cater for all. Extra marmalade and jams are only an ask away. Cleanliness is paramount to us (note all our other reviews) but it appears on this occasion a tissue was left behind the bed ? and our attention to detail fell short . Merry Christmas and a Happy New year. Kind regards. Phil and Joy.
