After looking for a guest house to accommodate two adults, a toddler and a 9 month old baby, we came accross The Glen.
From the moment we stepped into the house we were made to feel welcome, as if nothing would be too much trouble.
When we booked we had selected our check in time would be 4pm, it was more like 4:30 by the time we had found the correct road, however Bill was there waiting for us, offering to help carry bags and giving us a brief introduction to the house.
We had a family room, which was lovely, clean and spacious with a very well stocked tea and coffee selection. There are mini tubs of milk supplied in the room and just down stairs guests can help themselves to fresh milk and bottled water.
Toiletries are good too, even make up remover pads were supplied in the bathroom.
A bottle opener and a little pair of scissors are also in the room, and a selection of toys, which were very popular with our 3 year old!
The tv has all the normal freeview channels and a dvd player is provided, which we used quite a lot.
Breakfast was perfectly cooked every morning and there are a selection of cereals, fruit and toast that guests help themselves to.
Each morning we took a walk up The Helm before breakfast.
Location wise, The Glen was ideal for us to explore the Lake District.
We had a very lovely stay and will definitely return and have no hesitation recommending this Guest House to anyone.
