Had a great one night stay here. The bed was very comfy although the bathroom was pretty small. Would have liked a bit more space. Breakfast was excellent with stunning views out the window of the fells.

We stayed at Ivy Dene for 2 nights and would certainly be back again. Reading reviews on here before we had gone we expected a tiny room, and although it was small it was perfectly fine for the pair of us and we didn't feel cramped. We had a nice en suite with a hot shower which again was perfect... More
