Thanks you so much for the great stay. We had a perfect day off our bike trip around the Lake District. Lovely beds, perfect (vegetarian) breakfast, lovely birds in the garden.

Many thanks for picking me up in Lorton and taking me to Cockermouth and Penrith and the great breakfasts. Lovely place to stay – hope that I can come back. Many, many thanks.

Lovely to return. As always, very welcoming, comfortable and with excellent breakfasts topped off with the award-winning marmalade.

We had a great time (again) and we’d love to come back another time. The rooms are lovely, the hospitality is amazing, lovely breakfasts and packed lunches.

What a lovely introduction to the Lake District. Stunning scenery, lovely room, adventurous walks, real pubs, very caring hosts and the highlight – red squirrels!

The amazing review on the Internet only reflects what all your guests have written in this book. We have had a lovely few days and Briony (cocker spaniel) is such a bonus.

Fantastic little place, beautiful setting and to be able to see serin and pair of greater spotted woodpeckers from the breakfast table. Wonderful. Great breakfast and very friendly atmosphere.
