Fabulous 8.8 From 191 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Lovely location did not want to go home so extended our stay. All the Staff very friendly and helpful. Fresh milk was provided for the room which was a bonus. My only quibble was the “butter” which is a minor thing but if I had taken a pack of real butter with me it would have made all the difference everything else perfect.

Waiter and barman on duty during our stay were brilliant. Couldn’t fault their service and attention to detail. Food was excellent quality with a good choice available.

Beatrice Potter would be proud.
Fabulous 4 night stay in this hotel. Food was exquisite. Staff were accommodating and very friendly. The room was more than adequate and very clean. Dogs are allowed and so almost every guest had them. Not a problem for us, although keeping the hotel clean proved challenging for the staff. We will definitely go back to the Cuckoo Brow.

Thank you for making us feel at home!
Fantastic two nights with our small dog Teddy. Very dog friendly with dog biscuit barrel available for those all important snacks in the bar! Open fires very welcome after our days walking. The breakfast is fantastic and the food quality and options are really good with a fine dining feel to it. Service was great and the couple that run it are very friendly.
