The Lake District National Park in Cumbria, UK, is a vast area of beauty, both natural and man made, containing such things as picturesque villages, gorgeous scenery, historical properties and a lot more. Some areas in the Lake District are owned and run by an organisation called the National Trust, who, due to such things as donations, membership fees and tourism, make sure that the places and properties they own are to such a standard that people from all over the country, even the world, will come to see them.

I just returned from a 4 night stay at Tarn Howe's B&B. It was mostly pleasant experience (breakfast delicious, clean tidy rooms) however if you do not plan on going to sleep about 10pm I would not stay here. The sound proofing between the rooms is non existent. It was so bad in fact that it actually ruined my stay some what. I went out for a ciagrette around midnight, trying to be as quiet as a mouse, and the owner still got his back up. The lady who cooks breakfast was very friendly, however the same can't be said about her husband, who I found rude and particularly annoying. To sum up, stay here if you are very quiet, and go to bed early. If not, find somewhere else.

We have recently returned from a week's holiday in The Lake District. We took Dave's mom with us as she was 80 in January and this was her birthday present from us. We all went to the same hotel (The Fayrer Garden) where we went for our honey moon four years ago and we all had a brilliant time. As Margaret (mother-in-law) had a hip replacement last year we wanted to sort out some nice walks that were fairly flat so that she could enjoy the walking without it being too much of a strain for her. The last time Dave and I had been up there we had visited Tarn Hows and thought that this would be a lovely walk for her to try. It was a nice, sunny day but ... Read the complete review
