This B&B is located about 7 minutes drive from Carmel (which is a lovely place to visit - do go to the Village Shop!) and less than 30 minutes from Windermere (where we stayed two nights before our final night here). Cate has converted her large family home into a little haven in the countryside. We went for walk down to the little church in the afternoon and my husband went for a run in the morning; both thoroughly enjoyable! The house itself is two stories with two bedrooms - the South room has a separate but very impressive bathroom with bath; and the East room, where we stayed, has a private ensuite bathroom with shower that is actually upstairs from/above the bedroom itself. This room had an impressive window that looked out into the fields and caught the morning rays of sunlight (probably not best if you're a light sleeper - maybe ask for the South room). In addition, there are 3 separate living areas - a formal lounge, a relaxed sitting area and the bright and cheerful conservatory; not to forget the large garden with multiple tables and grassed areas. It feels like a home that you instantly feel welcome into. Cate herself is super lovely and very helpful. Plus, she cooks an impressive breakfast. We had the bircher museli, fruit & yoghurt, and scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, and it was fresh and of the highest quality ingredients. If I had one niggle it was that I wish the bed in the room was a (UK) King rather than a Double, but we slept brilliantly anyway. Oh, and did I mention that Cate had left us freshly cooked brownies and bowl of fresh fruit in our rooms on arrival? Just another little touch of hospitality that seems to be her signature.
