We were welcomed to River Garth by the very friendly owner Irene, she showed us to our beautiful bedroom, which was stunning, everything was immaculate. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the furnishings in the whole house were to a very high standard and spotlessly clean. The outlook from the house is onto the river which is lovely and very...

I have stayed in a lot of hotels and Guest Houses over the years and River Garth Guest House is by far one of the best. We were travelling to Penrith for a friends wedding at Askham Hall and found River Garth online. The pictures really do not do it justice. From the moment we arrived Irene and Brian were...

Four years ago (yes, it has been that long), my dad and I stayed here to round off our walk around the Lake District. We promised to write a review soon after but, unfortunately, never got round to it...until now. It's testament to the excellent standard of hospitality we received that we haven't forgotten our stay here although, unhelpfully, most...

Our stay could not have been any better. The house is gorgeous and immaculate (I don't think I've ever stayed anywhere so clean!) Irene and Brian were warm and welcoming. The bedrooms are luxurious, comfortable and have an incredible view. Our breakfast was fantastic and had everything you could wish for - even the jam was delicious. Outstanding.

Myself and my partner stayed with Irene and Brian for 3 nights (11th-13th September). From the moment we walked through the door we felt relaxed and so welcome. Irene's attention to detail is so humble, from the simple detail like having cotton buds and bottles of water in the room to the amazing breakfast that she supplies, we couldn't fault...

We spent two nights at this b and b and we couldn't fault it. The family room was spacious and plush and the breakfast was excellent. Our host, Irene, couldn't do enough for us and we will definitely return in the near future. Highly recommended accommodation.

Had a wonderful stay here and Irene was the perfect host who made us feel very welcomed. Will definitely visit again. Guesthouse is located at a good location easily accessible by car. There are few pubs nearby to spend a nice quiet evening.

It's hard to know where to start with the River Garth Guest House. Firstly it's immaculate, spotlessly clean with quality furnishings. We slept well every night the beds are very comfortable with good quality bedding. Our bathroom had a large walk in shower with lots of choice of luxury cosmetics. Your every need is catered for and its obvious that...

Second visit in three weeks, yes it is THAT good, honestly. Upon arrival was met outside by Brian who was very helpful and showed me in. Shown to room and was asked if I'd like tea. SUPERB. Tea and biscuits arrived. Room was spacious, spotless and really nicely decorated. Excellent heavy curtains to keep the light out as this time...

Irene and Brian are the perfect hosts of an immaculate home. We were greeted by Brian as soon as we arrived in the driveway. Irene fixed us some tea while we collected ourselves after a long flight from the U.S. There happened to be a festival locally and Irene got us a dinner reservation at a local establishment before they...
