By chance we came to this lovely house and stayed for 3 nights where we were warmly welcomed. Sam and Tiree have achieved just what you are looking for in a b & b, a happy well run house that provides a spacious bedroom (Bradleys King) with stunning views and a breakfast that is very special, yes that is one...

I stayed at Crosthwaite House for 5 days, and it was faultless. The house is an elegant Georgian building in the quiet village of Crosthwaite in south-east Lake District, about 15 minutes' drive from Kendal and Windermere. I received a warm welcome, and was shown to the single ensuite room, which is a reasonably priced £35 per night. Like many...

I stayed here with my family for our parents wedding anniversary. Tiree and Sam were fantastic helping to suggest places to eat and walks to try. The house was beautiful and all the little touches such as the fresh wild flowers, home made biscuits and local damson gin really made the stay extra special. I had the single room. The...

We stayed for three nights earlier this month, organised by our three daughters as a present for our Ruby Wedding Anniversary. The girls' selection of B and B and its location couldn't have been more perfect! We loved our room with a window seat and views over beautiful South Lakes countryside. The fresh flowers and home-made biscuits added to the...

Our trip to the Crosthwaite House was planned on a whirlwind two week trip to the U.K. in May. My husband and I traveled as far north as St. Andrew's, Scotland, and down to Bath and over to London. We chose the Crosthwaite House because it was halfway from Edinburgh, Scotland and Tewkesbury, England. We wanted a place in Kendal...

We stayed here for two nights in May and loved it. We had a lovely room with a view over wonderful wonderful countryside -green lightly rolling meadows and stone walls and the birds sang and cows lowed and it was truly bliss.

Just had the best weekend at Crosthwaite House, our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer (although I'm not sure our waistlines could cope - the food is AMAZING!!) :-) Thanks to Sam, Tiree and family for making our weekend such an enjoyable one, despite the weather! Anne, Steve and Katie x

We recently stayed at Crosthwaite House for four nights. The B&B is easy to find, with adequate parking on site. We picked Crosthwaite house based upon the great TripAdvisor reviews – and we were not disappointed! I had specifically requested the Merryweather Room, as it had direct access to a small seating area in the back garden. I thought that...
