Tythebarn House B&B is the perfect place for M6 travellers to pause – just 5 minutes from Junction 36, in the quiet Westmorland village of Holme. A comfortable stopover for business people. An excellent base from which to explore the Lakes, Dales, Cumbrian Coastal Path and Limestone Link. A quiet retreat for guests to relax and unwind.
This charming B&B is a converted barn with pine beams, log burner and a cosy cottage feeling. With just one room and only two guests, you are sure to be pampered. Guests says “Vic and Diana welcome you as a guest, and you leave as a friend.
‘The Old Shippen’ accommodation is all on the ground floor with bedroom, bathroom, hall area and kitchen. With a microwave and chiller there’s everything needed to prepare a simple meal or snack.
On a warm summer evening our courtyard garden is the perfect place to sit and relax. Alternatively, the local pub is only a short walk away. Guests comment on Diana’s attention to detail – the welcoming cup of tea or coffee with homemade cake – and the comfort of your guest room, made-up to your requirements as a single, twin or super-king. There are fluffy white bath robes to curl up in too.
Diana’s famous Stone-Baked Breakfast is a great start to each day. Local produce abounds along with home-baked bread, jams and cake. Bed without breakfast is an option, but you would be missing out on a treat!
Vic is at hand with suggestions for days out and an itinerary to avoid the crowds, the latest weather reports for hill top walkers and Lakes ramblers, or information for those who simply like a stroll along our local canal.
