“Welcoming and well positioned for viewing Duddon Valley”
Reviewed 8 September 2011

Gail and John run a nice friendly B&B. The room we had - Number 1, has a double bed and a TV and a decent size bathroom with a powerful shower and lots of hot water. John has set up wireless broadband, so if you need to check your E-Mail you can - mobile phones have no signal - good news.

The room is nice enough but is built into the roof with velux windows - normally no problem but in the Lake District and the normal inclement weather the velux windows make for a good drum beat in the night; additionally the pillows provided are a little soft so sleep quality was not so good.

On the positive side, if you need information on routes to walk Gail is exceptionally knowledgeable. Breakfast is very good and sets you up for the couple of decent walks ahead. The position of the property is perfect for setting off on the two routes worth doing from this position. Gail does offer a packed lunch option but the walks are about 5 hours max so probably not needed and the pub (see below) serves food from 11am to 11pm daily.

Next door is the Newfound inn which provides good wholesome no nonsense pub food and has a nice beer garden (when the sun shines).

In summary the B&B and the pub are friendly, relatively cheap and offer good value for money .

Gail and John were excellent hosts, and their son who runs the Newfield pub next door was also very friendly. Good rooms, good food, good real ales and a friendly welcome - everything that is best about the Lake District!

Stayed here as part of a walking trip. We booked because of the location and really fell on our feet. The Duddon Valley is one of the most beautiful and quiet corners of the Lake District and the lodge is in a beautiful location close to a wooded gorge. The landlady greeted us with tea and biscuits on arrival. The room was comfortable, spacious and spotless. The pub next door was an excellent place for our evening meal and in the morning we were treated to a first class breakfast with excellent local sausages and bacon. We talked to the prioprietors over breakfast and learnt a lot about the area. All in all couldn't fault it. Excellent value for money as well. Only one minor niggle - no tea and coffee making facilities in the room.
