We stayed at the Lakes B &B for three nights in April and were sad to leave. Eugene and Clare are excellent hosts, supplying their guests with the usual B&B things plus more: suggestions for walks, day trips, restaurants, pubs, parking...in fact whatever we needed. I especially liked the little seating area in the dining room where there are books,...

I stayed 5 evening at the Lakes B&B and it really is the best B&B I have stayed in! Clare and Eugene made me feel very welcome and after a very short time it became a home away from home. Also Clare makes a superb breakfast and incredible cakes! I can't recommended highly enough!
