Thank you for your very kind comments. Today the view is more wonderful with the tulips out, the sun shining and we have bullfinches feeding off the bird feeder along with the goldfinches.

Stayed at the Bank House after a long drive south and were happy with our comfortable room. It is well situated to walk into town even on a rather wild night! Breakfast was superb, lovely dining room with wonderful views, and extremely tasty smoked haddock, perfectly cooked. Friendly hosts. We'd stay here again!

An extremely welcome break on a long trip to and from Scotland! Sarah is a fabulous hostess, providing tea and cake for weary travellers upon arrival. Incredibly comfy beds and proper, large towels, and in the morning, a SPECTACULAR breakfast! Quite possibly the greatest B&B Breakfast we have ever had, with an impressive variety of Vegetarian options, including delicious porridge,...

Possibly arriving late from the south, possibly in the snow, my first question was what is your latest check in? The response was acceptable and so we booked on the day of travel direct with the house. Last available room was clean, warm and well presented. Breakfast plentiful and a good selection. In addition we were given a selection bag...

Lovely house and garden, great breakfast nice people. A definite cut above. One feature that requires special mention is the view you get over the town from the breakfast room, stunning. The house is very comfortable and is furnished with solid antique furniture.

Thank you so much for your kind review. We are up a hill but it does have the advantage of magnificent views, if you have mobility problems the taxis in town are plentiful and quite cheap. The garden has an Arts and Crafts layout with some original planting. We look forward to meeting you again. Sarah and Deano

My husband and I booked a last minute getaway to the lake district and were happy with our choice of Bank House bed and breakfast. The breakfast was amazing. Full fry up, fresh fruit, bread and cereals. Lots of choice. Would recommend
