Sue and Ian offered a warm welcome to their lovely guest house. The rooms are cosy and well-equipped for everything you might need for a stay in the friendly town of Penrith-within easy walking distance. The breakfast has to be seen to be believed! The 'basic' English was beautifully prepared and presented-we didn't try the 'specials' which-if possible-could be even...

I stayed at this guest house last weekend. (August 15) The service was excellent - from providing detailed instructions by phone on how to reach their parking area, to being met at the car and having my bag carried up to my room. The room was very reasonably priced, especially when you take into consideration the breakfast that was provided!...

Booking agencies take 18% of a B&B's bookings, so you might like to ring direct - 01768 864482 The breakfasts were top class (freshly squeezed orange juice and local produce) and the welcome from our hosts was warm and helpful. The bed was perfect and the room decor was tasteful.

As it says in the title of my review, we received a very warm welcome. Our hosts were very understanding to one of our party cancelling due to health. The breakfasts were superb - really high quality food. The house is pleasant and while the rooms are not enormous they are well equipped and very clean. I would not hesitate...

We stayed for one night whilst visiting friends in the area. Ian and Sue were very welcoming and friendly. The shower in the room was great and there was plenty of tea/coffee/milk provided. Breakfast the following morning was varied with lots of options and the cooked breakfast was very tasty. Will definitely stay again when in the area.

We recently stayed for one night at the beginning and end of our holiday in Scotland. Ian and Sue are very friendly and made us very welcome. Our bedroom was at the back of the house so was very quiet, clean and comfortable. The breakfast menu is vast I actually had homemade fishcakes and poached eggs which were delicious. Everything...
