Me & my partner stayed for 2 x nights in July 2013!

Rooms- we stayed in cottage 1 This room is used for guests with dogs (we are dog owners & booked this place because it was dog friendly) the room was spotless and unlike other placs we have stayed that have been dog friendly there was no wet doggy smells or other people dog hair! The rooms are light & airy with lovely bedding?

Staff- are very knowledgable and chatty....but not in your face and leave you to get on with your trip! On arrival we were welcomed with amazing homemade cake & a pot of coffee (all complementary).

The breakfast- was great they had a large selection of cereals & juices, and the cooked breakfast was yum!

If your looking for a chilled few nights away or an actioned packed walking / cycling weekend this is your place!

Three friends and I stopped off at this B&B for an impromptu breakfast as it lay on the route we were taking around the base of the fells on our walk towards Mosedale.
Despite having just missed the official scheduled breakfast time we were still able to enjoy much needed cups of tea and coffee and a cooked breakfast was quickly provided. The proprietors were extremely friendly and accomodating from start to finish, without that breakfast I don't think we would have survived the rest fo the walk.
I will certainly reccomend this place to anyone thinking of staying in the lakes as it is conveniently located, very friendly and very good value.

I recently stayed at scales farm guest house with my dad we had planned to walk across sharp edge and summit blencathra while we stayed here, we did summit blencathra but didn't manage to go across sharp edge due to weather conditions.
We arrived on Thursday the 8th of August and Helen who runs scale farm gave us both a big welcome.
The guest house was spacious clean and it had a very relaxing feel to it.
Our room was very comfortable and clean and we had plenty of room to move around.
The guest house had plenty of reference guides and Helen and her husband had a wealth of knowledge especially about blencathra and sharp edge.
Our breakfast in the morning was very good with a great choice of things on the menu.
We couldn't manage to book a full 3 nights due to a golden wedding that had sole use of scales farm so me and my dad had to stay down the road at a place called the hollies, this guest house was no way on the same level as scales and didn't have a friendly feel to it.
Scales farm is a credit to Helen and her husband.
Thank you for our stay and making us feel so welcome future trip on the cards to complete sharp edge.

From the first call to the moment we left everything was what we wanted. So if you want a great room, fantastic food, exemplary service and enjoy feeling your custom is appreciated then look no further and book now. Excellent, we will be back.

Stayed here easter weekend, we were welcomed with tea and cakes on arrival. We stayed in the family room with our almost 2 year old and our dog, breakfasts are amazing and packed lunches can be bought for a small fee and are excellent value the owners are friendly and helpfull, our room was cleaned every day, the hotel is close to the main road but you cant really hear it and if you have a dog its a 2min walk around past the chickens onto the fell all in all this is proberbly one of the best guest houses we have stayed in.

Also theres a quiet local pub next door that does excellent evening meals.

16 of us stayed in the bunk house next door and there was no breakfast. The guest house was asked to provide breakfast at very short notice. There was a very warm welcome and the food and service was excellent - thank you very much! Would highly recommend! She went well out of her way to accommodate us and this must reflect in the way the guest house is run.
