Really enjoyed our stay at The Kenilworth. It's our second visit and was as good as our first. Room had new bathroom, bed was very comfortable and the house was decorated beautifully. Tracey cooks the best breakfasts (blueberry muffins were my favourite). Thanks for being such great hosts.

Just spent a fabulous 3 nights at Tracey & Andy's B&B. Nothing was too much trouble with regard to food, lifts and top tips about where to go. Tracey baked something new every day for us to take on our walks. The perfect place to base yourself for discovering the Lakes.

Returned to Kenilworth for a second stay. Booked same room as previous visit and found it had been refurbished with a completely new ensuite. Even more comfortable and luxurious than before. Andy and Tracey are excellent hosts and the breakfast was first class.

Andy and Tracey's home is clean and beautifully decorated, the attention to detail is impressive (the mugs in the bedroom we stayed in matched the curtains). On top of this, they themselves, are really friendly and go through every effort to do all they can for you, which made us feel welcome and at home right away. Tracey's baking was...

From the moment we arrived Andy and Tracy made us feel completely at home. The room was lovely, cosy and warm and had a duvet that felt like sleeping under a cloud! The bathroom had the perfect shower. Nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend from the beautiful home baking to the stunning breakfast and wonderful little touches.
