    Fabulous Victorian manor house, like something from a period drama. My wife thought it was haunted.

    The faux leather and the cheap carpet in the yellow room made the room feel a bit like an old people's home. A trip to a good antiques auction would make a big difference.

    Tranquil location. Mandy, her daughter and the other young lady there were lovely and friendly. Beautiful rooms and decor throughout. Great breakfast, attention to detail, fresh flowers in the breakfast room. Hope to stay again x

    One of my party is disabled and has to use a walker. He can do stairs but slowly. If perhaps I had realised the effort it would take him to use the stairs here, I may not have booked...but all of us were soooo glad I did! It was totally worth the effort.

    We had difficulty finding Head's Nook Hall, but once there, we could not have been more delighted. The setting is lovely, the house spacious and well appointed, the staff helpful and unobtrusive, the food more than adequate. (For dinner we were directed to a local pub that proved ideal as well.) We had excellent privacy--not always to be found in a country house B&B. Our room was beautiful, and the views stunning. The bathroom was a delight, with a big soaking tub and room to move around. All amenities were just as we like them, without ostentation or silly attempts to jazz the guests overmuch. It was like being at home, at least if you happen to be a rather well-to-do country squire with a quirky Victorian manse and good taste.

    The signage for the house is non-existent, and we actually pulled into the drive and still could not ascertain whether we were in the right place. Locals could not direct us there; our GPS sent us to a nearby housing estate; there was no mark on the house or entrance, and there is a very confusing parallel drive leading to a small housing development to the rear of the B&B. We were unable to easily get information on local trekking pathways.

    HUGE bedrooms and bathroom; Funky, personal, period decorations

    Tiny shower stall; lack of AC (although large multiple windows in BR compensated; need to carry bags up long heights (but high ceilings were stunning); distance of house from Carlisle (but that's probably what enables it to be so grand in size and style0

    Just about everything at this great place was perfect. The welcome, the friendliness and attentiveness of the staff, who genuinely wanted you to have a great time. It's spotlessly clean and in an idyllic, quiet location that is handy for so many places to visit. Super breakfasts with fabulous choice of great food. I am sure we will return to enjoy another 3-night luxury break.

    The place is not signed at the roadside entrance - fortunately a dog-walker in the town was able to direct us. The nights were very hot and it was suggested we open the windows to keep the place cool, which we did and it worked. However we would have preferred a fan but assumed none were available, so didn't ask. On mentioning this at checkout we were advised fans were available. We should have asked but we feel the availability of fans should have been made clear. But these are not complaints, just observations from a couple of guests who enjoyed their stay immensely.

    EVERYTHING. The welcome from Mandy was second to none, the house is beautiful and so comfortable. We had the Gold and the Green Rooms and they were both perfect. Breakfast was excellent. There is nothing I would change, even the fact that there is no sign at the end of the drive to indicated that this gem is at the end of it!

    After spending three weeks in the UK at a number of exceptional B&B's, Heads Nook Hall would have to have been the best of the best. Its county setting and garden surrounds coupled with the first class accommodation made this a very special place to stay. Whilst it may have been a little more expensive than most, it was worth it. Mandy was extremely welcoming and friendly without being the least bit intrusive. Some great eating places within ten minute drive. By far the most relaxing stay on our whole UK trip. Would recommend without any reservation.

    Room was fantastic, lovely building in a nice quiet location, staff was faultless, breakfast outstanding.

    Would be nice if there had been a bar in the premise, but it is a guest house not a hotel.

    We were made very welcome - I was given tea and scones on arrival and, because it was a cool afternoon, the fire was lit in the sitting room for me. The following morning, despite being the only guests, we had our very good breakfast in the dining room and again the fire had been lit. Lovely touch.

    A very small quibble - would have liked a soap dish in the swower -prefer soap to shower gel. It was, though, an excellent shower.

    It was all good, nothing to complain about. The manageress Barbara was very friendly and helpful.

    I thought it was a tad expensive and overpriced. Yes it was a nice old hall and everything was there what we needed but maybe a bit too much.

    We think King size beds slightly higher would be an improvement could be an age thing !!

    EVERYTHING was just how we like it. Peaceful, relaxing and beautifully restored and decorated. Best breakfast ever. The owner and staff were welcoming and helpful

    Nothing, only thing I think may deter people is the lack of a bar, we just brought our own champers and there us a Co Op and pub very near

    We were greeted by the owner who was very friendly and warm and made us tea on arrival which was badly needed. The hotel is beautiful and unique, spotless and the breakfast was one of the best we ever had. If we are in the area again we will be returning. The hotel is was very convenient as we were traveling from Newcastle and we were going to the ferry in Cairnryan the next day so it was very close to the route that we were traveling on.

    No complaints but some signage is needed from the road.
