How to find a B&B in the Lake District

15 Jun 2017

When travelling, a B&B can make or break your entire holiday. It really doesn’t matter where you go in the Lake District or what you are doing on holiday. If your bed and breakfast is a welcoming, relaxing and pampering experience it will make your trip incredible.  Think about it, no matter what you do throughout the day, it all begins and ends in a place you stay.

What Makes You Happy

The first step in your perfect bed & breakfast experience is deciding what you really want in your getaway.  Set your priorities (location, amenities, cost).  If you are planning on going shopping a lot, you probably don’t want to be staying hours away from the nearest shop. If you love hiking and mountains, you have to stay in a place where you can practically hike from the doorstep of your B&B. If you are a lover of great food, you have to that offers a variety of homemade food of a high standard. The owners have to love food. Also, it is too easy to be swayed be cost.  Bed & breakfast places are only a good value when they have what will make you happy at a price you can afford. For travellers, a bed & breakfast can offer a very personal homey feel you can’t get from a chain hotel. We love learning about the local customs, a bed and breakfast is a great way to live like a local.

Luckily, here at The Plough Inn we have all these things to make you happy. We have beautiful hikes when you step out of the front door. We offer great value, our rooms start at £80. We are located in the beautiful village of Lupton and only a couple miles from the vibrant and picturesque town of Kirkby Lonsdale. People come from miles around to have a meal at our fantastic restaurant and as we are located outside the busy Lake District tourist hot spots, you can live like a local.

Hear It First Hand

When you have a few places in mind in the Lake District, don’t be afraid to call the bed & breakfast and ask any question you need to be answered.  First off, it is a great way to get a lot more information about the place and surrounding area than you can get any other way.  Also, here at the Plough Inn all our staff members have a huge.

Reviews, Reviews, Reviews

In the world we live in, reviews have become central to decision making on holidays. You check how many stars it has received and what people are saying about. A successful review profile allows a B&B to go from strength to strength. So our advice is to go to Trip Advisor and checkout what people have said. We have been very successful on Trip Advisor and we are always blown away by people’s very kind reviews. Here are some examples.

Date Night made perfect

“Delicious food, great staff, great atmosphere and good service. All round excellent evening. The staff were polite and speedy - thank you. The restaurant and bar were clean and the lady serving us made a mean lime and soda! Thank you, we will be back.”

Great for off motorway food

“Excellent menu and atmosphere within easy reach of M6 motorway. We always stop for lunch on drives south from Scotland. The Plough offers great value, variety and quality - especially on the blackboard. There is also a wide selection of wines.”

A real great find!

“Situated just off the M6 this is the perfect overnight stop off on that long journey - perfect for couples, solo travel or families. The welcome was fabulous! The hotel contacted me during the day as I was to be arriving late in the evening, they contacted me to wish me a safe journey and to also check whether I wanted food made for my 11pm arrival, this is the first of a hotel ever doing this in my experience and shows them going the extra mile for the customer. I used the hotel whilst on business and would highly recommend for good food, luxurious homely rooms - exactly what you want from a country inn. 10/10 - faultless Will most definitely be staying in future and recommending to colleagues, friends and family.”

As we tick all the boxes above you can come and relax at our beautiful B&B. The Plough Inn is situated in the quaint and charming village of Lupton only 2.5 miles from junction 36 M6.
