‘EXCEPTIONAL’ is the description most frequently used by our many bed and breakfast guests. Five of the guest bedrooms – Braithwaite, Mulberry,  French, Heelis and Whittaker, all ensuite, are available through booking.com (see our guest reviews!) or direct through us.

Bedrooms at the front of the house (Braithwaite and French on the second floor, and Whittaker on the first floor) overlook the valley towards Esthwaite water and the fells beyond, whilst bedrooms to the north (Mulberry and Heelis) overlook the home paddock, north grounds, and woods. Whichever bedroom you stay in you are guaranteed peaceful views. The rooms are named after people connected with the house since its construction in 1774.

Whilst Covid 19 restrictions are in force, so for the foreseeable future, we are serving breakfast to our guests in the West Barn Dining room/’Indoor Marquee’.

This large room, built in 1841 to provide more bedrooms for Rev Dr Whittaker’s family (and used for service of the wedding breakfasts for up to ninety guests) is perfect for ‘socially distanced’ breakfasts.

Guests have a large table allocated to them for the duration of their stay, with their own jug for orange juice, and everything carefully cleaned and sanitised between stays.
