On our arrival, Linda came to welcome us and from then on the hospitality was second to none. Our room was spotless and stunning and had everything we needed. The breakfast, especially the "Linda special" muesli, was amazing and nothing was too much trouble. We felt we were treated more like friends than guests, so thank you both.

Great hosts and very comfortable. Perfectly located for access to the M6 and all North Lakeland destinations. Good car parking and excellent food. Penrith is a fantastic place to visit, with plenty of places to eat and drink. Highly recommended.

We have stayed here a few times, you can always be sure of a warm welcome, spotless comfy room and a delicious freshly cooked breakfast that will set you up for the day. Great location, feels like the countryside yet only minutes from the motorway so great for a stopover to break up a long journey.
