Fantastic Stay
Lesley was a warm and friendly host who made us feel extremely welcome in her home! I would highly recommend staying here. The home made breakfast was cooked to perfection. She was extremely helpful and couldn’t do enough for us- booking us a table at a local restaurant and helping us plan our route up scafel. We had a very comfortable night stay and would definitely stay here again.

In every respect this B + B is as good as it gets. If you're visiting the western lake district put it top of your list for a few nights stay.

I'll be back!
Quite frankly the most comfortable home away from home I have experienced in over 25 years of travelling the country on business. I was welcomed with a shot of peach schnapps and a home baked, gluten free (I'm coeliac) sweet treat, then looked after better than my Mum (I hope she doesn't read this), until I had to drive home. Betty's Cottage, the annexe, has its own kitchen, and milk and chilled water are left for visitors in the fridge, there was a home made chocolate to welcome me at bed time the first night and a sweet treat each evening. Be prepared to leave your diet in the car on arrival!
