I was late arriving as I ended up in traffic, I phoned to advise of this and the lady at the B&B was so understanding I felt so at ease. Upon arrival I was shown to my room, I was shown the facilities and I felt I had all I needed and the lady was so friendly. The room was...

This place has had quite a bit of criticism but I'm glad I booked it although it could do with a bit of an update it was a great base and the owners made us (including our dog) very welcome and having the pool was a real bonus!

Welcoming owners with comfy, basic rooms. Good serive, good breakfast, and overall good value. Note the road can be a bit noisy with window open. Short walk into Longtown, ten miles from Brampton. Does the job for an overnight stay or a couple of nights.

We stayed here on our way back from visiting relatives in Scotland. We called ahead and booked a family room over the phone. When we arrived we were immediately asked to settle our bill on arrival and ensure that the breakfast menu form was completed - very strange! The lady showed us to our room and straight away there was...

In terms of beds, bathroom, storage for bicycles, friendliness and breakfast this will meet most people's requirements. The decor is very dated however, so if you're looking for something more modern, keep searching. It is situated about 0.5 miles outside Longtown.

Very clean rooms, comfy beds, superb polite service and the breakfast was excellent, very welcoming, it's just a pity this excellent B&B situated in Longtown which doesn't have the best of reputations, but then again it is farn enough out of town to not be a problem.

My friend and I stayed at the Briar Lea for two nights recently. We stayed in the Garden room, which was comfortable and clean - the en suite bathroom was gorgeous with a large shower and superb spa bath. The owners were very friendly, without being intrusive, and the breakfasts were delicious, with great service, hot delicious food and plently...

My daughter booked 2 rooms at this B&B for our overnight accomodation on our way up to Scotland. We arrived quite late on a Friday evening and the landlady was quite accomodating and explained that on the original booking one room was in a separate part of the house and so we would be separated but she had a family...

Good sized room. Light & airy. Some traffic noise. Supposedly pet friendly but there were several signs saying "dogs welcome but not on our lawns or gardens" which left either a muddy field to walk dogs in or the narrow verges of a busy road outside the B&B.

My husband, daughter and I stayed in Briar Lea Guest House on 3/8/11 as a stop on our way to the Lake District. We arrived around 8.00pm and were shown to our garden bedroom by the lady owner, when she opened the bedroom door we were met by a moosty smell. The room was clean but the decor and furniture...
