My wife and I have had the pleasure of staying with Gwen and Reg on many occasions over the last few years. Never would dream of going anywhere else. Why would you when you have fantasic rooms with comfortable beds and the cleanliness is second to none. The food is always brilliant with a wide choice with nothing too much...

Reg and Gwen are great hosts and their hospitality is very welcoming. As it was my Mums birthday, she was pleasantly surprised with a card and chocolates in her room. This was a lovely touch and...

We stayed in in Wansfell, room at the back (they have 3) , it was quiet and had everything you could need. We were very well looked after and breakfasts were fab.
