'We were 2 old school friends having a short break in the area and we loved our stay. Both Sheila and Steve were most welcoming and accommodated our special request of having a champagne afternoon tea for dinner. The room was well presented with nice touches which you expect to find in a hotel but not necessarily in a b&b such as robes, small bathroom items i.e. shower cap etc. and we loved Peter!! Happy to recommend.'

'If you are looking for the ideal spot to visit in the Lake District then this is the ideal place to stay,the warm welcome to School House Cottage is endorsed with the offer of refreshment, the proprietors also have a small tea room in the large well kept garden where the cakes on offer would win first prize in any bake off competition so afternoon tea takes on a new delight. Our room was light and airy, decorated to a high standard and extremely comfy.The breakfast menu offers a good range of fare from the full english to freshly cooked porridge, the full english was cooked and served to perfection.The only dissapointment was having to leave, will we be back? YOU BET.'

'We arrived tired and hot and the difficulty in finding the entrance to our B&B made us all the more weary. (Soon to be remedied I understand ). Then the proprietor\'s smiley face emerged and from then on it was sheer bliss. A wonderful clean, bright and cosy room with a particularly comfortable bed, followed by a cooked breakfast to set one up for the day. A great visit and one that we would like to experience again if we are ever in that area. Keith and June'

Top marks for school house cottage

'Our end of term report puts this b and b at the top of the class. The subjects - breakfast, accommodation and value for money - make it a standout destination for a relaxing break in the Lakes. The delightful owners, Steve and Sharon and Steve’s mum Mavis went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay and really do make you feel part of the family. Afternoon tea and cakes on return from long hikes were more than welcome. Steve’s cooked to order breakfast set you up for the day and just watching Mavis enjoying her stint as head gardener was enough to tire you out in time for a good night’s sleep. We look forward to going back for a new term!'

May Bank Holiday Stay
5 stars 5

'This is a fantastic little B&B with really friendly and helpful hosts. The room was clean and tidy and the bed was so comfy which is just what you need after a days walking around the Lake District. The breakfasts were cooked to perfection and to order could not ask for more! For dining out in Hawkshead you really do need to book a table in one of the local places to avoid disapointment! Afternoon tea/coffee and cake is on offer in the Sun Room at the B&B looked amazing however didn\'t get the chance sample - next time! Would stay again.'

Pleasant stay at school house cottage
4 stars 4

'i travel a fair amount with my work and always use hotels so it was a pleasant change to use a B&B and experience a very personal and friendly stay. Rooms very clean, bed comfortable and breakfast freshly prepared and plentiful. Very competitive price too. I would recommend it. The owners were very helpful and provided the personal touch missing at hotels. I would not hesitate to return.'

'We had a lovely stay during christmas and new year. Lovely food. Lovely and friendly hosts. Lovely cake in the summer house! Bedrooms welcoming and clean,and breakfasts cooked to perfection. Good central location for hawkshead and walks in the area. Some guests might not enjoy eating at one table together; but it didnt bother us as very flexible eaating times.'

Really Enjoyable Stay
5 stars 5

'This was our first experience of a B&B so were a little apprehensive. So pleased we chose this place. The location is great, no passing traffic to wake you up early in the morning but also very close to the centre of Hawkshead so you can easily make your way into the village on foot. We were made to feel very welcome by Sharon & Steve, the room we had was bigger than expected which was a lovely surprise and probably has one of the most powerful showers I\'ve ever used. The house is set in a lovely garden which we were lucky enough to have a view of from our bedroom window. Also in the garden there is a lovely summer house, which with the help of a good heater, was even warm on a cold October evening, so is a nice place to relax, there is even cake to be found in there! Probably one of the favourite things here was the very tasty breakfast we had each morning, made from locally sourced ingredients, and the toast made from Steves homemade bread is to die for! The portions are great too, really sets you up for the day. Would definitely recommend booking here if you like a warm welcome, comfy room and a scrumptious breakfast.'

'Tucked away in nice quiet spot. Stephen & Sharon made our stay for our Pearl Wedding Anniversary more than memorable. Full English breakfast sets you up for the day. Need to walk it off before freshly made evening meal. Room was perfect with beautiful views. 3 cats make it even more homely. Hope to go back soon. Afternoon tea summerhouse will be great. Only wish I could give it 6 Stars! Thanks to you both from Shirley & Michael.'

Wonderful hosts
5 stars 5

'We had a fantastic one night stay at the School House Cottage. Steve and Sharon were very hospitable and attentive from the moment we arrived. We had a welcome drink and chocolate cake in the living room with our hosts and shared travel stories. The bedroom was large with a comfortable double bed and a wonderful view of the garden together with an en-suite bathroom. Breakfast was made to order and comprised cereal, orange juice, coffee, a full English and fresh fruit. The brown toasted bread is to die for!!! The B&B is at the far end of the village so it isn't noisy when the pubs close and is only a pleasant 5 minute walk to the centre. This will be my B&B of choice the next time I am in the Lake District as Steve and Sharon couldn't do enough to ensure their guests have a great stay with them.'
