Laurel House is owned and run by the husband and wife team of Jeff & Alex Fazal. Built in 1750, this traditional Cumbrian farmhouse offers a warm welcome & a tranquil stay for the discerning traveller. The elegant and spacious bedrooms are well appointed with either Kingsize or Superkingsize beds - each has a private bathroom or shower room supplied with heated towel rails and quality toiletries. All rooms have tea/coffee facilities along with comfortable seating areas supplied with armchairs and footstools. Alex's traditional Cumbrian breakfasts, along with Jeff's homemade bread, were awarded a Visit Britain Breakfast Award in 2010, and are served in our Orangery conservatory. They consist of fresh fruit, quality locally sourced produce, fresh coffee/breakfast tea and a vegetarian option. The comfort and ambience of Laurel House was recognised with a Visit Britain 4 Star Gold Award in 2010, followed by a prestigious 5 Star Award in 2011.
Just 10 minutes drive from J40 of the M6, we are ideally placed for visiting family staying at Center Parcs, or as an overnight stay on the way to Scotland. Unfortunately we cannot accommodate children under 16, or pets.

On arrival we had a very warm welcome, and offered tea or coffee and fresh home made scones. The bedroom was very spacious, clean and nicely decorated. The breakfast was the best we have ever had. The owners were very friendly S S S S S

When searching on the internet for a place to stay for a night near center parcs we discovered Laurel House B & B . We are pensioners and have never stayed in a B & B before and if Laurel house is anything to go by we have wasted a lot of our time and money on hotels. From the moment we arrived we were treated to the little extras that make a stay wonderful. Tea and scones, cold milk and a glass of wine on arrival. The room was lovely and the pub down the road, booked by our hosts, presented a great meal in front of a roaring log fire. It was very cold outside. If we are ever in the area again we will have no hesitation in booking into the Laurel. S S S S S

It would be hard to find a better place to stay. Laurel House is a lovely old house with large garden in an attractive village,perfect as a base for the beautiful Eden Valley and Alex and Jeff are wonderful hosts- welcoming, friendly, generous and helpful. Our room was beautifully furnished with a super-comfortable bed and en-suite with good shower. Tea and scones on arrival and delicious breakfast. This was our second stay here, I hope and expect it will not be our last. Alex and Jeff's kindness ensures that guests feel relaxed and at home. They do everything necessary and more to make your stay enjoyable. In-house entertainment provided by two friendly, well-behaved Jack Russells. S S S S S

We stayed at Laurel house for two nights on our way up to Scotland. The owners Jeff and Alex were extremely welcoming and friendly and on our arrival we were greeted and provided with tea and homemade scones in the garden as well as a lovely glass of wine and lager. We stayed in the Oak room which was at the front of the house which was beautiful and luxurious with a huge bathroom. The breakfast had plenty of choice, cereals, fresh fruit, full cooked breakfast with homemade breads and preserves, which was delicious. It was nice sitting with other guests which made it a nice relaxing atmosphere. Nothing was too much trouble for the hosts and they booked us a table at the black swan pub on the Friday and at Mrs Millers on the Saturday. The food at both was excellent. They also printed us direction to Hadrian's wall as well as advising us on where to visit during our stay. The house is beautiful and full of history. I couldn't have wished for a more perfect place to stay and would certainly stay here again. Thank you Jeff and Alex for providing us the most perfect start to our trip. xx S S S S S

Nice warm welcome with tea and scones.very comfortable room with good shower facilities. Excellent breakfast. The location was good and very quiet and rural. We were recommended a meal at a local restaurant which was reasonable and excellent food.the hosts made us feel at home and very welcome. It was just what we needed after a long drive and a long journey ahead of us. Would thoroughly recommend it. S S S S S
