Hi, stayed here so that we could visit the Boot and Shoe pub to have a meal and listen to the band later on. Stayed on the top floor with en suite. The place is set in a lovely enclosed garden which was so nice I just wanted to get a deckchair and relax in but alas we had plans...

We were able to only stay one night but will definitely be returning. I haven't stopped telling family and friends of this fabulous place that the hosts Hazel and Ian seem to have thought of everything! We stayed in the standard double although nothing standard here. A stunning house within beautiful grounds nestled within 20,000 acres of views!!! Like I...

We stayed at the Stafford guest house for 2 nights, from the minute we arrived we were made to feel welcome. The guest house is stunning, clean, and the breakfast was fabulous. Our room was the en suite and the view of the grounds was the best. I would highly recommend staying here to everyone. The local pub does lovely...

Thank you for a wonderful review. We are just sorry that the weather wasn't up to much, but unfortunately there isn't much we can do about that, believe us - if we could, we would! But that didn't stop you form exploring just about every corner of the Lake District, and still managed to have a great time! Take care,...

This was our last stop of a tour around Scotland, on the way home. We had stayed in lots of B &Bs and this one was the best. It is in a beautiful setting, the room was spacious, a very comfortable bed, fresh flowers , fruit, fresh milk, dressing gown and even a torch for finding your way home from...

Quite simply, a superior b and b. A lovely listed building in a quiet parkland setting. The room was beautifully appointed, very comfortable and with many unexpected extras like flowers in the room from the garden and a bowl of fruit. Hazel and Ian are very friendly and helpful hosts. We can't recommend this accommodation too highly.

Thank you for a wonderful review. The House and it's gardens do the hard work, and well, if we can do the same then I think we've about cracked it! It's lovely to be able to put fresh flowers in the rooms and on the Breakfast Table straight from the garden, and we try to think of anything that our...

First you drive under the arched entrance into Greystoke Castle and up the driveway. A B&B here? Surely not! But then this is more ordinary B&B! A turn off the driveway into the Folly and you enter a gorgeous garden. At end of July, it was in full glory. Then there was the welcome by Hazel and Ian at the...

This is an excellent place to stay if you are attending a wedding at Greystoke Castle, which is literally moments away up the drive. The interior is classically decorated, and you want for nothing whilst there. The hosts are wonderfully friendly, provide an excellent breakfast, and make you feel right at home! Cannot recommend this place enough!

Thank you for your lovely review. We are fortunate to be where we are so close to the Castle which itself is a fantastic venue for Weddings or indeed for any other event. We have tried to keep everything in keeping with the style and the age of the building, and sometimes when we are looking for that certain something,...
