Only managed to book a couple of weeks before our stay - stayed as a family of 8 in 3 of the rooms. From booking over the phone through to checking out - the perfect guesthouse ran by a very welcoming and helpful couple. Parking was fine, and any general problems solved immediately by the assistance of Ian and Sue....

Great location! 6 of us on the coast 2 coast stayed for 1 night, Good rooms and even better breakfast! Would highly recommend! Bike shed for over night storage was great and Sainsbury's just over the road to stock up on supplies.

We had a booking malfunction and ended up knocking on doors looking for two rooms for one night. The hosts could not have been friendlier (unlike the first place we tried) and gave us a choice of rooms. The beds were beautifully comfy, rooms were very clean and there were thoughtful touches like bottled water and shampoo/shower gel supplied. Breakfast...

It is always a wonderful experience staying with Sue and Ian. Always a warm and friendly welcome. The guest house is immaculate, comfortable and like being at home. Facilities are amazing, spotless and clean. Always have a brilliant overnight stay here. And then an excellent fresh, well cooked breakfast with top quality ingredients served with warm, friendly service. Highly recommended!

Friendly welcome from owners nothing too much trouble. Rooms very comfortable and spotless, supply everything you could need including fresh milk if desired. Unbelievable breakfast, all fresh produce with homemade bread,preserves and fruit compote. Hot dishes cooked to order recommend the full English or smoked haddock fish cakes ( think homemade) with poached eggs. Can't recommend highly enough.

We stayed here on the first night of our coast to coast Hadiran's Wall cycling trip. It was easy to find and comfortable. Our host was friendly and welcoming and the cooked breakfast was lovely. Parking was an issue but we were helped to find a suitable place to park and our bikes were kept safely in an outdoor shed...

We stayed here for an endurance event which started nearby. Ian was brilliant from start to finish, answering all my queries in advance and helping sort out our requirements. Then, so helpful when we stayed. The ideal place to stay if you're cycling with secure storage and with Penrith on your doorstep. Nice, clean accommodation and very important, a great...

Excellent place to stay. The owners are just the perfect hosts, very nice people and very helpful. The rooms are nice, modern, homely and comfortable. The breakfast was nice and set you up for the day. We were cycling the coast to coast and the location of the Caledonia was a great location for that. After a hard day cycling,...
