“Marvellous hospitality”
Reviewed 18 May 2013

The house is a lovely modern property in a very quiet position but well situated to visit north Lancashire and the southern lake district. The hospitality of the owners is truly outstanding and I can recommend a holiday here without any reservation whatsoever.

Room Tip: The view at the front of the house is particularly nice

We usually go for older properties to stay in but decided on this because of the reviews and we were not disappointed. The only problem was making the effort to get out and explore the surrounding villages and countryside. We were made so welcome and the home made cakes and pot of tea when we returned in the afternoon was delicious. The breakfasts were amazing. We will be going back for more!

other reviews have said it all. mel and roy are lovely friendly people in a beautiful house in a
fantastic location. it was just what the doctor ordered especially after a long 6 hour drive.
nothing is too much trouble for the hosts who are extremely helpful. we will recommend
capernwray house to all our friends, but of course when you come across a little gem like
this you really want to keep it for yourself!

Room Tip: all rooms are nice and quiet

Doff Your Cap To Capernwray House that is perfectly situated Far From The Madding Crowd of the Historic Market Town of Kirkby Lonsdale, Lancaster, Carnforth, Morecambe and Over Kellet, yet conveniently placed to visit them and for the M6 Jct 35, the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales. This allows for peace and tranquility in a rural location and time to catch your breath. The comfortable lounge on the ground floor and the cosy en-suite accommodation are spotlessly clean. The warm and friendly homely welcome from Mel and Roy, the hosts with the most, whose attention to detail of quality bedding, luxury towels, robes and sumptuous multiple choices for breakfast, make this an experience not to be missed and one you will not forget.

First class. Roy & Mel are very friendly and helpful. After a long drive I sat in the spacious lounge with a large pot of tea and homemade cakes. Delightful. The accommodation surpassed my expectations. Large spacious bedroom and bathroom. Extremely clean, comfortable and modern. Nice little touches like good shower gels, soaps and body lotion.
In the morning I had a delightful breakfast - expertly cooked. I wish I could have stayed another night.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone who finds themselves in that part of the world.

This place was fantastic in every way I can think of. From the tea to the shower to the bedsheets, everything lived up to its 5-star status. Never had a better night's sleep, and breakfast in the morning was to die for. Even the view out our bedroom window was breathtaking. If any of you find yourself in the Lancaster area, the Capernwray House is WELL worth taking a detour.
