“Absolutely amazing !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2011

Just got back from our trip in the UK. My husband and I hiked a section of the Pennine Way, stopping at various B & B s along the way. After a very tasking 20 mile day of climbing Cross Fell and other peaks and valleys we arrived at Lowbyer Manor to be greeted by the pleasant news that our hosts had upgraded us to a better room. They felt we would want a warm tub after such a hard journey. We had also previously arranged to leave our rental car at the Manor for the length of our hike. Not only did our hosts graciously accept to keep our car, but they helped us arrange modes of travel to the start of our hike. Its all in the details and care and attention and our hosts lacked in neither. Great company, great food, beautiful rooms all in an amazing little village. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer.

Rooms were overpriced for what they were, for the prices charged we have had higher spec rooms on our travels. That aside, I found both Laura and Richard very attentive and accomadating. The lounge was lovely and generaly the house had a warm feel about it. Laura cooked us a great breakfast in the morning, catered for our needs and always had a smile on her face. I have no hesitation in recomending this establishment for walkers and all!

Room Tip: Ask what room you will allocated by checking against the website specifications

A lovely place with friendly helpful landlady. Clean, tidy, comfortable room with a large shower en-suite. Walking distance to a good pub/restaurant. Great breakfast.

Great attention to detail regarding all things that make a stay comfortable in an interesting historical old house. Hosts are very hospitable and kind, without a trace of stuffiness.

Room Tip: We have a dog, which means we look for easy access and good surrounding walks rather than best views...

My husband and I stayed here one night while cycling coast to coast. On arrival we were given a very warm welcome, a cup of tea in the lounge, and a complimentary upgrade to the master suite so we could have a bath after cycling all day! The owner was lovely, very friendly, and the accommodation very comfortable. A good breakfast ended a relaxing stay.
