WE booked at the Tythebarn House B&B as an impulse excursion just for a change of scenery , the price was very good. However the quality of the accommodation was outstanding. there was nothing that was too much for the owners of the B&B. I will definitely visit again SOON!

Great and clean B&B. This is the second time we come back. Vic and Diana are nice people to talk with. Vic takes care of all the requests and invites you for a chat and a drink. Unique and professional. A secret gem and a perfect gateway to the Lake District. Thank you for the plan you did for us through the Lakes, we drove it and enjoyed it very much. Cartmel wonderful.

Ideal location (nearish to M5 but not noisy), facilities & little attention to details made my stay very memorable & enjoyable. Small but perfectly arranged outdoor area, where you can enjoy a truly beautiful breakfast cooked by Diane & Vic. The homemade touches were exquisite. Couldn't fault my stay in anyway.

This B&B really gives value for money and suits my needs down to the ground. I've stayed in a number of B&Bs over the years but have found it difficult to find somewhere suitable to eat at the end of the day. Many places frown on food being eaten in rooms, and anyway, the food is often cold by the time you get it back to the B&B. This is where Tythebarn House differs, and provides me with a place to eat what I like and relax in peace. There is a warm, comfortable, self contained space with a kitchen, bathroom, and good sized bedroom that has a very useful area with a beautiful wooden table, and two chairs. There is also a comfier chair for those who like to lounge. I have been completing a range of courses in the area over the last 6 years, and I find that at the end of a busy day I just want to crash out somewhere comfortable and have a simple hot meal. The little kitchen at Tythebarn is equipped with everything you need to do this (as stated on their website). It's easy to find, no matter what direction you come from and there is always get a warm welcome from the hosts and homemade scones with a pot of tea. A perfect start for a relaxing evening.

I note all the glowing reviews about B&B but I wanted self-catering. Fortunately I only stayed one night. Cancellation charge: NB if you cancel with less than a week’s notice you are charged in full. These are not the sort of T&Cs I am used to in B&Bs [anywhere in the world]. The host was very friendly, printed out maps for me, helped me with directions back to Kendal, welcomed me with fresh coffee and a scone with jam. Very nice: but although I chose this place after a recommendation, I would not go back. I am sure it is better as a B&B and you have breakfast upstairs where there is more room, but as a self-catering stay it is not comfortable. Location: rather inconvenient! If you want to explore the Lakes, this is much too far south. I had business in Kendal and it was about 10 miles south of the town, and I had already driven down from Scotland. It was very hard to find, especially in the dark. Facilities: well-appointed bathroom, plenty of “extras” though the bath towel is a bit small. The “kitchen” is a utility room. As there were dirty clothes in one of the washing machines and all sorts of stuff in the cupboards I assume it is used by the hosts. There is a toaster and a microwave but nothing else so not exactly “self-catering”. A small fridge is provided. Bedroom: twin divan beds, not especially comfortable and minimum width; radio, and TV when they have fixed the aerial. As the TV is up near the ceiling the only place to watch is by sitting in bed. This room is also the “sitting room” – in most self-catering places I have stayed there is a sitting room or the bedroom is big enough to accommodate a settee or comfortable chairs. Here you get a tiny table, 1 metre by half a metre !! in a small alcove with two wicker chairs and a wooden garden “armchair”. Comfort level: 2/10. Board games are provided, and a small hanging space. OK for one person, a squeeze for two. Don’t bring a lot of luggage! Information pack: very limited. Mainly about places to eat! Nothing about Kendal, and all the activities there, and little about anything else. One event brochure was a year out of date. There are so many brochures in the information centre it would be easy to provide a better selection. If you go online you can find the information but sometimes you do not know what there is to look for! In winter the heating is switched off at 11.30 p.m. If you get up in the night it is cold!!

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. As there will be others considering staying with us reading this review and my response there are a few things I would like to mention with regard to your comments. As you rightly say, we are primarily a B&B and this is clear on our website. Increasingly guests choose to stay on a no breakfast basis, in which case the small kitchen is a added bonus. I like to speak to guests prior to arrival to explain the facilities more fully, apologies if that didn't happen. I describe our facilities in the confirmation email as a mini-apartment with cooking facilities suitable for a simple meal or snack and there is no mention of a separate lounge. The kitchen does double as my utility room when we don't have guests staying and I apologies for items being left in the washing machine - that was an oversight on my behalf. Our Terms and Conditions are standard in the hospitality sector and a refund is always given should the room be rebooked. Full directions from the motorway junction are given in our confirmation email and a text sent on the day prior to arrival with our link to Google maps to help you on your way. The route and the distance to Kendal is easily calculated from this link. The 3 guest towels include a normal large Bath Sheet size, found in all but the most exclusive B&Bs and hotels. Our beds are a standard single size at 3' wide with a firm mattress. If I remember rightly our TV arial had blown down the previous evening and had been repaired as best we could before it was replaced later that week - this things happen from time to time. Our intent is always to make the best use of the space in our guest accomodation and with that view we recently replaced a large wardrobe with the table and chairs as the wardrobe was rarely used. The small wardrobe in the hall and other hanging spaces in the hall and kitchen suites most guests very well. The chair (with cushions) is purposely designed to fold away for the times when a travel cot is required. Our information book for local facilities is regularily updated and new brochures are replaced in January every year in time for the new season. As mentioned in the confirmation email Vic is very happy to print out an specific information, routes and weather as required, and as you say everything is available online these days. Yes the heating system does clock off at 11.30, but I do make a point of showing guests how to press the button to put it back on should they be cold and it then stays on all night. It would have been helpful to have spoken to us regarding these points prior to your leaving as, with most B&Bers, we are a helpful, friendly couple and seek to please. We are very sorry you didn't find us up to the standard you would have liked. We constantly consider any changes we need to make in order to improve the experience of future guests. T0 end on a positive note - thank you for your comments regarding our hospitality and help with the maps for Kendal. Kind regards, Diana
