Comments by walkers who stayed at Lakeland Hills in Burneside on The Dales Way
 
I agree with all the other feedback. Arrived weary and aching, greeted by Tony and 2 other walkers I had met on the walk, tea and cake, time to get cleaned up and then taxi service courtesy of Tony to quiet local pub for excellent food.
Delicious breakfast and Tony's informative chat set me up for a final day's walk.
Arrived tired and weary but set off with a spring in my step.

We stayed here in Sep 2016. We had also chosen this accommodation based on the reviews on this website and again we were not disappointed. It was the best place we stayed in while walking the Dales Way.

There is not much more to add that has not been covered in some of the other reviews. Our lovely spacious bedroom was on the ground floor with a good size en suite bathroom. A nice touch was the pay as required snack & drink trays in our bedroom.

Tony our host greeted us with tea & scones in the sun room on our arrival. In the evening he ferried us and the other guests to and from the Gateway Hotel near Kendal so that we could have supper.

Tony an active mountaineer and retired park ranger among other things was a mine of useful information about walking the Dales Way and the local area. He freely gave his advice over breakfast next morning.

Unfortunately, we only briefly saw Caroline his wife because she was working a day job.

Highly recommended, even just to converse with Tony.

Superb accommodation.

Tony & Caroline made us feel very welcome and the tea and cake on arrival was much appreciated. We spread our wet kit over their patio to dry.

We had opted for fish & chips and Tony kindly warmed dinner plates and made a pot of tea.

The American pancakes are to be recommended.

Tony kindly brought our bags to the station as we had chosen to travel home that evening rather than stay overnight on Bowness.

Earlier this month 4 mature Walkers stayed at Lakeland Hills for 3 nights whilst we completed our final stages of the Dales Way at our leisure. Burneside is.excellently placed for road and rail connections. We were made extremely welcome by Caroline and Tony, well looked after and fed, setting off each day after a hearty breakfast, returning to tea and cake and with very comfortable accommodation. Can really recommend Lakeland Hills.

Stayed 1 night walking the dalesway in march,didnt book with sherpa as out of season.
This is a must stay for this section of the walk.
Were greeted bty Tony with tea,coffee and fruit loaf in the conservatory .
Shown to a lovely double bedroom with full bath.
Tea ,coffee making facilities in the room.
Tony and Caroline go the extra mile by providing a tuck shop in the room at cost price.and transport to the Gateway Inn where the food was excellent.
Breakfast you have plenty of choice from full english to pancakes with fruit. We had the full english and it was excellent.
Packed lunches can be provided.
At breakfast Tony filled us in the where we would be walking that day and told us to look out for otters and kingfishers. along the river. From Burneside to Bowness it is a lovely walk and one to enjoy.

Tony and Caroline made us all feel very welcome. The house is very comfortable with everything you could need available, and the garden is a delight. There was a problem with breakfast - what to choose!! - everything was freshly cooked and delicious, and the pancakes were the best I've ever eaten. We were delivered to and collected from a restaurant in the evening - but Tony went way beyond the expectations of a B&B host.... he solved a near disaster on completion of The Dales Way by personally delivering, on foot, our bags to us on the train on our way home - thank you!!

Tony and Caroline have a beautiful home and garden where we felt instantly at home. Everything was stylish, comfortable and spotless. They had thought of everything for the tired walker, from refreshing drinks to blister plasters!

Breakfast was delicious and served with a recital of Wordsworth's Prelude. Tony knows and loves his Lakeland, has read widely on the subject and is so interesting to chat with. And Caroline is a warm, kind district nurse, who loves her garden ~ which is all very reassuring.

We didn't want to leave. Will defo return and tell friends too.

Tony and Caroline are lovely people, well travelled, climbers, great hosts. Tony was a Park Ranger and gave us great tips for the last leg of our dalesway walk next day. Our room was tastefully decorated. It was large with a big, modern ensuite. Comfy bed, great shower, fluffy towels. Tuck shop in the wardrobe with Compeed, beer, snacks etc at cost price. Greta idea. I had Tony's American pancakes for breakfast. What can I say. Come and see for yourself.

A wonderful stop. The house has been beautifully planned to accommodate guests and is extremely comfortable. Tony and Caroline were very friendly and knowledgable and it was so interesting to find out about some of their treks. They looked after us very well - even cleaned our muddy boots! Pancakes and fruit for breakfast were yummy. Highly recommended.

I have two favourite places to stay on this route, this is one of them. Everyone walking the Dalesway MUST stay here. What a lovely place and such lovely people. As walkers themselves they are well prepared & able to cater for any needs. You can also stock up on any essentials in the excellent tuck shop. Another must is the pancakes with fruit for breakfast! My husband had a full English breakfast which was as good as any other we had along our way, but having eaten my pancake 'left overs' ( it's a hugh portion!), he wished he had had them. We will just have to pay another visit!

Thank you Tony & Caroline

The best b&b on the Dalesway. Tony was a great host.

Host Tony is a friendly and very interesting bloke - walker, climber, ex-Park Ranger and well travelled. Lakeland Hills is a comfortable modern house.
Tony gave us a lift to the Gateway Hotel for an evening meal (few minutes away just over the A591 Kendal to Windermere road) and even phoned first to book us a table. It was a good recommendation, friendly staff, very good meal and well-kept Thwaites beer. As we often visit the Lakes, we'll be back.
Tony cooked an excellent breakfast - I had full English but nearly wished I'd had pancakes and fruit like my wife did.
Good tip from Tony which we took advantage of - before reaching the end of the Dales Way at Bowness go up Brant Fell for a brilliant view of lots of Windermere with the mountains (e.g. Langdale Pikes) in the background.

This is a place we surely want to come back
tol Nice, warm and helpful hosts - wanting to
make our stay as pleasant as possible!
Comfortable and clean rooms and Tony`s pancake with fruit ...indescribable!
Our very wet and dirty boots were otherwise found
dry and clean in the morning - and the one of
us with some bad blisters - even got profesional
nursing by Tony, who also had good advises how
to make the following walking day the most
interesting as possible! Thank You Caroline and
Tony!

What fantastic hosts! Such a warm welcome. Tony is a wealth of information and right in his element, being in the tourist industry! Accommodation was also fantastic-modern, comfortable and the en suites were fab! Although Burnside wasn't the most

Couldn't ask for anywhere better. Such kind people and a wonderful stay. I already miss the pancakes.

What an amazing place this is to find - we will definitely be back. Tony was a most welcoming host with tea and cake and was full of interesting information about the area and the walk we were undertaking. Took us in his car to a nice place for our evening meal and even picked us to come back. Just amazing.
The magic wardrobe as we named it was the best find we had on our journey. Everything you need at the end of a long days walk.
Cannot wait to go back there again.

Thank you

Wow! This is by far the best place we stayed while walking the Dales Way. Nothing was too much trouble, from fetching us fish and chips so that we didn't need to go out again, to dealing with blisters and drying boots. We were made so very welcome, it was a wonderful end to our journey. Tony's pancakes are a must have and I didn't need any more food before arriving in Bowness 4 hours later. Don't even think about booking anywhere else, this is the best you will find anywhere. Thanks Tony and Caroline and thanks to the Sherpa Van company for moving our bag and transporting us back to Ilkley at the end.

What a welcome. We arrived dripping wet and was welcomed in with towels, hot coffee, cake and a chance of a bath. Which first? After a shower and a change we were taxied by Tony to the Gateway Hotel for an excellent meal. Both Tony and Caroline are lovely people with a wealth of knowledge and care. Nothing is too much trouble and our saturated clothes were all dry for us the following morning. Tony's pancakes are a must have. Don't come here without indulging in a perfect start to the day. Scrummy!!

Without doubt this was our best stay on Dales Way. Pauline arrived first in a taxi due to blistered feet & was made really welcome. Tony & Caroline are great company & keen walkers, climbers & the rest. Great conversation, lovely cup of tea & cake when I finally arrived. More like visiting relatives than a b & b, couldnt be more helpful, great food. Wish we,d taken up the offer of them collecting us at Bowness & staying there a 2nd night. Sure you'll be pleased, but not surprised, Pauline made it all the way to to Bowness. Many thanks due to Caroline, we owe you a lot on the last day

We can only agree with previous comments.
Staying at Lakeland Hills was like staying with old friends. From the tea and cake on arrival (and we were much later than planned!), to getting us booked into the pub and taking us there and getting us back Tony couldn't have been more helpful. It was a joy to then sit with a beer and a glass of wine and chat to Tony and Caroline who are great company. Another briliant breakfast - The Dales Way seems to specialise in them.
Don't go anywhere else if you are near Burneside - you won't find a better B&B.

Not only is Lakeland Hills the best B&B I stayed at along the Dales Way, it is probably the best walkersí B&B Iíve stayed in anywhere. Lakeland Hills offers modern, spacious, comfortable accommodation, equipped to the highest standards; a warm welcome and a genuine, but unobtrusive, interest in their guests.
There is a refreshing attention to detail: afternoon tea on arrival, an extensive library of outdoors books, a well-stocked mini-bar/tuck shop (at supermarket prices), a free lift to and from local pub/restaurants and a delicious breakfast.
Tony and Caroline are experienced and knowledgeable outdoors people who know what walkers want and how to provide it.

This bed and breakfast was one of the best I have been at. What personal service- tea and home made cake on entry, a lift to and from a restaurant for our evening meal, wonderful breakfast. Very friendly hosts. Definitely to be recommended.

Fantastic welcome from Tony and Caroline and we can thoroughly recommend the home-made cake when we arrived! Comfortable, friendly atmosphere, lovely room with view of their garden.

Great breakfast - pancakes with fruit from the allotment - and more home-made cake in our packed lunch ( no wonder we haven't lost weight despite walking 82 miles last week!)

This really is a 5 star Bed and Breakfast, nothing too much trouble for Tony and Caroline. The room spotlessly clean, attention to detail is second to none. This couple cannot do enough for you and the breakfasts with the choice of menu is divine. Anyone visiting the Southern Lake District should book this accommodation without hesitation. Another little plus was the

We have just stayed at this property, our last night before finishing the Dales Way. The property is gorgeous with a lovely double/twin room of a very high standard with double doors onto a patio and an immaculate en-suite. It was the nicest place we stayed on the walk. We were greeted with lovely homemade cake and a pot of tea and Tony's knowledge of the area is amazing. Can't recommend it enough!
