We really enjoyed our stay with Tony & Shirley in their lovely B&B. Tony's breakfasts each morning were a delicious and filling treat. Their good humour was entertaining and their information about the local area very helpful. The views of the hills from the B&B are beautiful and its proximity to Grasmere very handy.
