Excellent stay in Swinside farmhouse rooms spacious and amazingly clean. The breakfast is brilliant far to much food to eat but really set us up for the day, they can also make you a packed lunch for a very small fee. All in all a lovely b&b run by Jo who can not do enough for you. Would definitely recommend...

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...
