We chose Capernwray House because we wanted a stop off in the Lake District during a drive up to Scotland and it had amazing Trip Advisor reviews. We were not disappointed! The house is located in a very pretty rural setting very near Carnforth and the M6. We were able to see a couple of rooms, both of which were spacious and tastefully decorated, with enormous very comfortable beds and lovely ensuite bathrooms complete with good quality toiletries and power showers.
As soon as we had dropped our suitcases we were offered a cup of tea, which was served to us in the main sitting room alongside homemade cupcakes. We also had the chance to see the breakfast menu, which is much more extensive than that of a standard B&B, offering smoked haddock, kippers and other produce all from the local smokehouse.
We had just had a new baby, and were unable to go out for dinner so enquired about local take aways. Roy and Mel recommended that we get food from the local pub, the Eagles Head, and called them up to ensure they could do a take away, which they did. We ordered fish and chips, which were excellent (and served up on proper plates which the pub was happy for us to return the next day!) and Roy very kindly provided all manner of condiments for us to use.
In the morning we had breakfast in the large hall in the house which is used as the dining room. The decoration in the room is a bit dated, especially compared to the very modern rooms, but it feels very homely. Breakfast was really excellent - wonderful fresh eggs perfectly poached and fantastic sausages, bacon and black pudding.
All in all it was a spot on experience and everything you want from a B&B - comfortable clean rooms, great food and warm, non-overbearing and perfectly pitched hospitality.
