Reviewed 29 July 2011
“My husband and I are walkers and booked the last room in this very lovely B&B last minute as we could not find any available B&B’s in the nearby Lake District. I have to say it was a great spot of luck and a wonderful find! We arrived mid afternoon on a beautiful day to find a stunning house in a great location with wonderful views.
We were greeted by Bob, one half of the very friendly owners, who showed us to a lovely guest room with an immaculate en suite shower room. Bath robes and Molton Brown toiletries were an added piece of luxury.
Lanercost is a very nice small village with a beautiful priory and lovely nearby walks along the river. After a short stroll we enjoyed a lazy afternoon in the garden with the papers and Bob offered us tea and cakes.
A great night’s sleep in the huge superking bed and the fabulous breakfast cooked to order in the morning set us up for a massive walk on Sunday after only a 40 minute drive to Ullswater. This place is a great location for walkers wanting to hike on the Wall or in the Lakes. I cannot recommend this B&B highly enough or do it justice with this review! Go and find out for yourselves! Thanks for a wonderful stay and we will definitely be back.”
