Positive Reviews

Pleasant rooms with views

Visitors loved the pleasant estuary and garden views from their rooms in this Victorian property retaining various period details. The rooms were often described as comfortable and clean with cosy beds.

Great breakfasts and congenial hosts

This guest house was said to be well-run by friendly hosts who had good local knowledge of outdoor activities in the area as well as places to eat. The hearty and tasty full English breakfasts were popular with diners, who described them as generous and freshly-prepared.

Quiet and pretty coastal village location

Reviewers enjoyed the tranquillity of this property's location in a secluded coastal village on the west Cumbrian coast overlooking the confluence of three estuaries on the rivers Irt, Mite and Esk. Many said it was picturesque and easily reached by road or rail thanks to the proximity of the A595 and Ravenglass railway station. The surrounding Lake District National Park was a paradise for birdwatching, rock-climbing, mountain-biking, walking and fell-running. Moreover, there was uncomplicated access to the western lakes and Scafell Pike, England's tallest mountain. Another plus was that there were several dining options in the village.

Negative Reviews

Claims of nuisance light pollution

Light pollution from external street lamps occasionally proved to be a nuisance for light sleepers in certain rooms facing the road.

Flaws reported in some rooms by critics

Several critics commented that there was dated decor in some rooms or that there were insufficient power outlets for those with lots of electronic devices to recharge. Others felt some of the en suite bathrooms and bedrooms were a bit small, especially when they were fully occupied.

Car park was sometimes a tight fit

Drivers appreciated the free off-street parking. However, as spaces were limited, the car park sometimes proved tricky to navigate when it was busy.
