“Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

We stayed with Rosemary & Linda over a 4 night break with our disabled, frail father. Rosemary & Linda did everything they could to accommodate us. Flexibility, friendly & a can-do attitude to helping us give our dad a holiday in the Lakes. The breakfasts were superbly cooked, the crockery was spotless with an emphasis on quality. I cannot speak highly enough of this B&B or the owners. The disabled facilities were everything we could wish for & more. The feel & smell of clean linen is unmistakable as you you relax in the comfortable beds. Simpy perfect. I've already booked again & have no hesitation in recommending this superb guest house & the lovely, lovely Rosemary.

Room Tip: I tried rooms 2, (disabled facility) 4 & 8. All were outstanding.

We stayed at Meadowcroft Country Guest House for a couple nights this week and we have rarely had as good an experience anywhere before! Super stay in a delightful room with excellent power shower in the bathroom over roomy bath. Breakfast was delicious and Rosemary a terrific host, friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for her and her excellent staff. All-in-all a tremendous experience and we would DEFINATELY stay there again! 5* experience!

Over the last week I have stayed at Meadowcroft on two occasions. Firstly with my wife & family & latterly with a walking buddy. As usual, you are guaranteed a friendly welcome from Rosemary. The rooms are so comfortable with all you needs catered for depending on the type of room you need, some including a bath rather than a shower-ideal after a 6 day point -to-point walking trip.The breakfasts are wonderful too! freshly cooked within your view served by Rosemary's fair hand. A mile down the road is the Hawkshead beer hall in Staveley which is also a must for real ale drinkers. One thing is for sure-i'll be back!

Room Tip: For a Couple- 3,4,5,7,or 9. Room 10 for 3 people

We stayed here, with my folks, for our first 'fell-walking' holiday last weekend. My step-Dad is a regular here, in fact he's back again this week for his 18th stay!!!!
We had a beautiful room, with the comfiest bed - much needed after the mammoth walk!!! Our shower was AMAZING!!!
Breakfast was great too - cooked to order and we requested an early start, which was no problem at all for Rosemary, who was such a friendly lady - as well as the dogs who wanted to say hello when we arrived!
We'd certainly stay here again - great value, great service, great people - and a perfect base for enjoying the geography - and of course the local pub, the local beer hall, and the chip shop in the next village - the best pudding, chips and gravy I've had for a VERY long time!!!

We stayed at the Meadowcroft Guesthouse for 1 night and wished we had booked Friday and Saturday. On arrival we received a very warm welcome by Linda and Rosemary who showed us to our room and let us settle in. The Meadowcroft is very pet friendly, we had Harley our 18mnth old cocker spaniel with us who loved all the attention, they even leave fresh clean towels in the porch to dry your pets off. Nothing seemed to be any trouble for them. The rooms are lovely and clean and the beds and pillows are extremely comfortable :)
Rosemary recommended the Watermill which was a stones throw away, what a wonderful, friendly pub. The food and drink were excellent.
We will certainly be staying next time we are up in the lakes.
Thank you to everyone at the Meadowcroft for a wonderful stay :)

We had booked Meadowcroft after being advised by our agent. Since we were visiting from India for the first time we didn't know what to expect so we checked the reviews on TripAdvisor and were relieved that this was a good place.
But we were in for a pleasant surprise. This B & B is more than just that... it's lovely!
Linda and Rosemary are lovely hosts and I didn't mind the fact that they are chatty! I'm an Indian and quite a chatterbox myself!
They had loads of tips to give us on where to go about in Lake District and what we shouldn't miss.
The breakfast is home cooked and is the best part.
Rooms are cozy and beds are extremely comfortable.
If I ever return to Lake District, I will only stay at Meadowcroft.
