Great little find!
I'm used to staying in large hotels and for some reason I'm now getting into more discovery of smaller hotels, Inn's and B&B's. You meet incredible people with loads of local knowledge and their businesses mean so much more to them than a large hotels staff. This one is a little gem, really accommodating and helpful and friendly throughout. Thanks for a great evening with my brother for a catch up. Steve.

B&B as it should be
Absolute gem for exploring the Borrowdale Valley. The breakfast was very good and there was plenty of choice. The evening food, albeit a limited menu (which was fine by us) was delicious. If you’re lucky enough to stay Sunday night, the roast is probably the best you’ll have. The team were all great, including those still learning the ropes. We will certainly return.

Amazing B&B!!
We had an amazing time at the Royal Oak. It's all newly renovated and so nicely done. We booked a triple for us and our todler. When we arrived, they gave us an apartment instead which was lovely, our daughter loved having her own bunk room! The food is also incredible, especially the cooked breakfast, and the staff are so friendly. Our daughter loved chatting with them about all the cows and sheep she saw on our walks. The location in Rosthwaite is incredible for walks, a walkers paradise.
