Stayed for two nights bed and breakfast, lovely accommodation, clean,with excellent breakfasts and plentiful, especially enjoyed the fresh fruit. Jo was a great hostess, clean towels daily, home made biscuits in the room which were filled up both days .Close to Keswick and surrounding villages. Will recommend to family and friends.

Beautiful views. Handy Inn next door for food/drinks. Spotlessly clean. Comfortable bed. Friendly welcome. Lovely breakfast. 5 minute drive from Keswick. Couldn't fault it really - a delightful little B&B.

All in all a lovely b&b run by Jo who can not do enough for you. Would definitely recommend... More

Farm-like in that, it is a converted farmhouse with sheepfolds next to it but not an operating farm - so no much or smell. Located slightly away from tourist hub, it is great for those wanting to experience farm life in the Lakes along with some peace & quiet. Cat Bells is minutes away while Buttermere and Crummock Water are... More
