What a little gem of a place to stay. The owners are lovely and friendly and certainly make you feel welcome. I stayed in the family room which was huge and extremely comfortable. The bathroom is beautifully appointed with a walk in shower. There's just something really nice about a few little homely touches so often missing in larger less... More

I stayed at The Square House last week. I have never felt so welcomed! The couple who own it were so helpful and so nice, they really couldn't do enough. You could tell they thoroughly enjoyed what they do and you could sense how personal it was to them, you don't get that lovely feeling in big corporate hotels...they actually... More

My friend and I were recently doing a photography course with Aspire and stayed at the Square House. We arrived to a very warm welcome from our host, Alison. The house has loads of character and we immediately felt at home. The breakfast times were very flexible and the delicious breakfasts were all made using ingredients from local suppliers. The...

I stayed for two nights at this lovely B&B whilst attending training nearby. I was greeted with a lovely warm, friendly welcome. I stayed in the twin room which was very spacious.

Although visiting Burton-in-Kendal on my own I was lucky enough to have the Family Room whilst staying at the Square House. The room and the private bathroom are top class. Everything is neat and tidy and in excellent order. The breakfast and hospitality were amazing and I can't recommend this B&B enough!

We stayed in the family room, which was perfect for 2 adults and our 2 young children, with lots of space and the most comfortable bed I have slept on in any hotel or B&B. The breakfast was on a par with a 5 star hotel with a delicious, skillfully cooked full English, assortment of cereals, fresh strawberries & rasberries,... More

We recently spent 2 nights at this B&B. The room was spacious with a huge comfortable bed. Breakfast was more than we could eat! The hosts were friendly and relaxed.
