“Hostess with the mostest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

Avril is a genuine & caring hostess who goes to extreme lengths to please her guests. Great relaxing countryside location. Avril prepared a plate of fresh strawberries, raspberries & blueberries for breakfast becasue she knew I wanted a healthy one.

We stayed at Newbiggin Hall for a friends wedding in the nearby Fell Foot Woods. Avril was an amazing host, laying on home made scones and tea when we arrived, cooking us delicious breakfasts and even ironing my fiancés shirt for the wedding. Nothing was too much trouble.

Highly recommended.

Avril was a wonderful host. Because we came with baby, she kept the third room free, so we would feel more comfortable. Wonderful scones and breakfast! Avril's B&B is located in a rural setting with great views. We had a great time there.

After a number of nights sleeping on not so great beds, Avril's place was a welcome change. We stayed in the room with the ensuite and loved it. The views were fabulous, the pillows were perfect and the water pressure in the shower was lovely!
Avril is also a great host. She had scones, cream, jam and tea for our arrival and cooked us an excellent breakfast each morning. She is also great for a chat!
I would definitely recommend staying at Newbiggin Hall.

We so enjoyed our time in Avril's home. Beautiful countryside, loved the view from the rooms and the conservatory. Lovely home, comfortable beds. Avril made welcoming scones with jam and tea as well as a full English breakfast and more scones on our final day. We had warm conversation and felt so welcome! We felt like family in just a short time! Would definitely come again.

I spent four very happy and comfortable nights at Newbiggin Hall, sharing the twin room with a friend. The attention to detail is superb - fresh wild flowers by the bed, a tea-tray with quaint china, super-comfy bed and luxurious white towels. The location is everything you hope for from the Lake District - quiet with stunning views. What "made" the stay for me was Avril, the landlady: a warm and charming person for whom nothing was too much trouble. I could eat my take-away in her kitchen as she baked bread, or call in mid-day for a rest and share a cup of tea in front of the aga and be made totally welcome. I shall return!

Room Tip: I would recommend the double rooms with the huge Georgian windows with stunning views.
