My husband and I had an amazing 2 night stay. Breakfast was delicious, the rooms are spotless and updated, and the homemade cakes delivered to the room each day are a special touch. The hosts are lovely, and obviously care deeply about their business, the area and the experience of their guests.

Had a fantastic weekend in the Lakes. Accommodation was wonderful, Maxine & Graham are great hosts and their full English breakfast was outstanding already booked for next year. Hilary & Andrew Downes. P.S Andrew fell in love with Maxine's Cumberland sausage.

Right near the lake, shops, restaurants, ferry and everything you need but just far enough away from the front to be peaceful. Breakfast was a perfect English breakfast and you get some yummy homemade cake deposited in the room every day. Highly recommend staying here as a good base for exploring the lake district!
