Terry and Sindy were very friendly, with good suggestions on where to go. Terry explained to us about his bees and we tried some of his delicious honey. Good location, close to pooley bridge. Would love to stay again.

We can't add anything more to what others have already said except to echo that is truly a great place, exceptionally clean and friendly with great facilities and a breakfast which could not be beat. The bed is also the comfiest ever! Also real country pub within walking distance which we had two great meals in.

Great stay at La Ruche, this was our first trip to the Lakes - ideal location a very short drive away from Ullswater lake where you can pick up the Ullswater way trail (and 3 pubs!) Not far from Keswick either. Tasty breakfast and really comfy bed helps too! Sindy and Terry made an effort to chat every morning and gave us some handy tips. Would definitely recommend.

Every aspect of booking with Sindy & Terry was efficient and helpful. The room is exactly as shown on the advert, in a lovely location near Ullswater. Sindy's breakfast was better than a hotel, hands down! We really enjoyed our stay, very comfortable lodgings.
