Just spent a fabulous 3 nights at Tracey & Andy's B&B. Nothing was too much trouble with regard to food, lifts and top tips about where to go. Tracey baked something new every day for us to take on our walks. The perfect place to base yourself for discovering the Lakes.

Returned to Kenilworth for a second stay. Booked same room as previous visit and found it had been refurbished with a completely new ensuite. Even more comfortable and luxurious than before. Andy and Tracey are excellent hosts and the breakfast was first class.

Andy and Tracey's home is clean and beautifully decorated, the attention to detail is impressive (the mugs in the bedroom we stayed in matched the curtains). On top of this, they themselves, are really friendly and go through every effort to do all they can for you, which made us feel welcome and at home right away. Tracey's baking was...

From the moment we arrived Andy and Tracy made us feel completely at home. The room was lovely, cosy and warm and had a duvet that felt like sleeping under a cloud! The bathroom had the perfect shower. Nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend from the beautiful home baking to the stunning breakfast and wonderful little touches.

Kerry, It was great to meet you guys. Thank you so very much for your lovely review we appreciate it enormously. I'm glad you enjoyed the shower in room 5 it's a power shower that I'm told delivers 16 litres a minute so it does the job after a cold day out. We very much hope to see you guys...

My Dad and I have just arrived back from a wonderful few days staying at Andy and Tracey's beautiful home. On arriving, we received a very warm welcome and were given tea and home made cake, which was delicious. We were taken to our rooms which were amazing. The bed was so comfortable and the towels were lovely and fluffy!...

We loved everything! We were greeted by Andy who was so so lovely. He offered us tea/coffee and cookies and carried our cases up for us. I think we had the smallest room but it was plenty for the 2 of us for 2 nights. We have never been to the Lake District before and Andy recommended some restaurants/pubs and...
