After a very very long journey crawling up the M6, we finally arrived rather late to the B&B. We'd had to cancel our meal out given how late we got to the Lake District but Lesley was a wonderfully welcoming and sympathetic host when we arrived. The little treats and drink were lovely touches and made us feel like our weekend away had finally started.
The location has lovely views across the fields, the room was spacious with personal touches in the decoration. The bed was big and fluffy with soft sheets and the en suite, modern and clean with a good power shower. There was a wide variety of food for breakfast and by making your selection the night before, the food was ready for you in the conservatory to enjoy looking out on the garden.
Homemade cake in the afternoon after a long walk was most welcome and the port before bed ensures a restful night. All in all, we would highly recommend this lovely little place.
