Had a very wet weekend in north Cumbria. In fact just a week prior to the very bad flooding around there. However, the hotel was a haven of tranquillity amongst a torrent of raging weather. The building is listed and the owners have faithfully adhered...More

We've stayed three times in Boltongate Old Rectory; we know no better B&B anywhere (and almost none that are even comparable). Many small touches in the rooms, and small courtesies during the stay, show how much Gill and David have thought about every smallest detail...More
