A fantastic place to stay - beautiful Georgian house set in 7 acres. Host Susan really charming and couldn't do enough to make us welcome. Superb breakfasts and lovely bedroom. Definitely a must!

Susan is a great host! She's very friendly, warm, kind and easygoing. Best host ever after using airbnb. The property is a fantastically decorated in Georgian style. Room is extraordinarily clean and tidy. Shower and bath have multifunction. Moreover, we'd say the breakfast cannot be served better. Neighbour people and living community including the pub nearby are very friendly and warm as well. We're definite to see her again soon!

A lovely lovely place to stay that we will certainly book again to try and do better justice to it! It's ideally located in a quiet spot away from the tourist areas, but within good reach of them if you have transport and is a perfect place for exploring the top end of the Lakes, or, as was our plan to stay the night then travel south. Things didn't quite go to plan for us and Susan was kindness itself when we turned up at her beautiful house as I was quite unwell. She was attentive and concerned without crowding me out and arranged for us to have sole use of the bathroom which was really thoughtful. The shower was completely wonderful, I could have stayed in there all day but was distracted by the sight of a red squirrel on the garden lawn, which was a bonus. My husband reported that the breakfast was excellent and what a friendly and companionable host Susan is. We're already looking in our diaries to try and find another date to to enjoy our trip properly! Thank you so much.

Upon arrival we were met by Susan who showed us around her lovely home and made us tea, coffee and biscuits which we enjoyed with other guests in the lounge. The breakfast each morning was very good and plentiful. It was lovely to be able to watch woodpeckers on the feeders and red squirrels on the lawn. A very comfortable stay.

Susan made our first airB&b experience one to remember. From checking in to leaving she couldn't do enough: her breakfast is out of this world, the house is clean, warm and tidy and the views from all the windows are stunning. Thank you Susan.
