I've stayed in many guesthouses and hotels over the years but Brooklands is one I want to return to time and time again. Stopping here on the first leg of our holiday up to Arran, I have to admit it was hard to leave knowing that the next stop wouldn't be patch on this little piece of heaven. Needless to...

I stayed at Brooklands for 2 nights in November when I was down for a conference at the Rheged Centre. The B&B is centrally located - a short walk from the town centre, bus station and train station. The room was beautifully decorated, TV, excellent toiletries (which I appreciate as it saves me having to take a bag of my...

We were staying in Penrith for just one night after my niece's wedding. We were very pleased with our room and the facilities. In addition to the usual beverage tray there was a coffee maker, fresh fruit, sweets; also bathrobes and a lovely range of toiletries in the bathroom. It was immaculately clean, warm and with a very comfy bed....

A great place to stay in Penrith and everything that a B&B should be. A very warm and friendly welcome from Leon who made us a pot of tea upon arrival. Our room was well furnished and spotlessly clean with all the little touches that took it out of the 'ordinary' and into the 'special', such as the bowl of...

Leon greeted me like an honoured guest even though it was my first visit and I was only staying one night. I had the single room and although not large, it was adequate with lots of extras and a superb mattress on the bed. Lovely homely feel B&B with wood panelling, antiques and pictures. The haddock fish cakes for breakfast...

It exceeded our expectations. The owner was really friendly, the Superior Suite room was luxurious and well equipped and breakfast was great! I couldn't improve the room, service, food or anything about our stay.
