Reviewed 1 July 2014

my wife and I stayed at this beautiful retreat in the western lake district for our wedding anniversary this weekend. I have to say that this was a very wise choice as trawling through the hundreds of choices one could easily just opt for something at random. This is an ideal location for exploring the western lakes and coastline. Our hosts Alan and Alison were very warm, welcoming and very hospitable people who added the human touch to our stay at this fabulous guest house. We arrived to find a welcome chilled bottle of wine and glasses to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Breakfast was brilliant with good choices available, on our first day we opted for English breakfast(beautifully cooked) and on Sunday had the smoked salmon with scrambled egg and potato cake(yummy)Our room was wonderful with a 4 poster bed in our suite and tastefully decorated and furnished with lovely view. Would heartily recommend you give it a try

Room Tip: definitely the suite with 4 poster bed for romantic getaway

I was there last weekend of june with my boyfriend and we couldn't be much better. Allan and Allison were totally nice with us. The house is decorated with the most care taste ever. Everything clean and with a lot of light. Breakfast awesome and also the cake in the room every morning. The towels and the robes were really soft and nice. House and area really quiet in the night.

We will be back to enjoy Lake District again. To have some dinner, we recommend Irton Hall (5 minutes from the House) or The Ratty arms in Ravenglass (8 minutes also from the House).

Our first time in the lakes was amazing and staying at carleton green made it so much more special,Alison and Alan were so so welcoming and warm towards us and made us feel completely at home really couldn't have asked for more..they recommended some fantastic places to visit and places to dine out just genuinely nice helpful people...I thoroughly enjoyed the daily cakes I got extra as my partner isn't a cake lover hehe :-) and the full English breakfast was so yummy really did set you up for a day trip out.
Thankyou guys for making our 15yr anniversary an extra special one and keep up the good work, you have such a beautiful house and are both lovely.

Much love Sarah and Gareth xxxx

We wanted somewhere comfortable and convenient to stay so that we could visit the Eskdale Show, Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway, Wastwater and Muncaster Castle. Having initially planned to stay elsewhere I came across the reviews of Carleton Green and swiftly changed our plans. We couldn't have chosen a nicer place to stay, great location and a beautiful house which is very easy to find. We can confirm that Alison and Alan are great hosts and quite rightly proud of their lovely establishment.
Fabulous breakfast with home made yoghurt, fresh fruit, decent juice and the best full English ever! Great quality ingredients and enough to keep you going all day.
The weather was fantastic but the B&B would make an excellent retreat even on the coldest and wettest of weekends, in fact sitting in the guests lounge in front of a roaring fire would be very appealing.
Highly recommended and so much to do and see in the area means that we will be back soon.

Room Tip: If you have trouble stepping into or out of a deep bath choose a room with a shower.

Our third visit to Carleton Green and this time we took 10 friends and family to walk our last .wainwright. Alan and Alison made us all so welcome with so much tea and cake , sloe gin and fabulous cooked breakfasts. It really felt like our own home for the weekend nothing was too much trouble. We'll be back again but strongly recommend Carleton Green if you fancy a family or group gathering in this gorgeous part of the world.

Room Tip: All the rooms great ,we know we took them all.

My husband and I are just back from a lovely little stay at Carleton Green B&B. It occupies a very scenic spot. The B&B itself is a large Georgian house with an interesting history.
Alan and Alison are a super couple who went out of their way to be helpful and obliging. Our room, with its four poster bed, was immaculate. And the bathroom was gorgeous! Much nicer than most hotel bathrooms, with a stand alone slipper bath and big fluffy towels. We had robes too, and home made cake awaiting our arrival... It really did feel like a sweet little boutique hotel.
Breakfast was yummy, we are vegi but Alan made sure we had a hearty meal that set us up for the full day.
As for evening meals, there isn't really anywhere near enough to walk to, but there is a local taxi service. Check out the a Wild Olive in Gosforth a few miles up the road - really delicious. And the next night we went to Nether Wasdale, there are a couple of pubs there that do food, surrounded by marvellous scenery.
Would definitely recommend Carleton Green, can't imagine finding a better spot for such great value. Thank you, Alan and Alison, for such a nice stay!
