Everything you could need for a short stay, they were extremely helpful and friendly.
From the moment of booking our stay, Terry and Sindy have been nothing but helpful! The location was great, the house was beautiful and very clean. The bed was very comfortable and the breakfasts were delicious and filling. Terry and Sindy were great hosts advising us on places to visit and eat. Would highly recommend anyone visiting Lake District to stay here. It was really a 10/10 experience and couldn’t fault it in any way.
Great place, good location and excellent service.
Had a great couple of nights at Terry and Sindy's. Their place was immaculately clean and comfortable, and the food was lovely.
Terry and Sindy were both great hosts, very welcoming and friendly. The room itself is spotless with a lovely modern bathroom, definitely worth a stay!
A big thank you to Terry and Sindy for helping to make our stay in the Lake District so lovely! Right from our initial booking, they made us feel so welcome and that nothing was a problem (even when getting stuck in traffic on the way up and needed to check in later than we had hoped). Sindy your breakfasts were amazing and thank you to you both for helping to guide us with activities and things to do during our stay. The room was clean, the bed extremely comfortable and the bathroom modern and clean too. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting somewhere peaceful to stay and within easy drive of a number of local attractions.
We had an awesome experience at Terry and Sindy’s place. They are adorable people, the accommodation is brand new and squeaky clean and the breakfast that Sindy cooks for you is succulent... My wife and I highly recommend this place!
Wonderful friendly hosts. Sparklingly clean accommodation and in an excellent position for visiting the Lakes. I highly recommend staying at La Ruche B&B and would definitely return when in the area again.
An excellent stay, and the best host I have experienced on Airbnb. Very comfortable bed and the breakfast was exceptional. Terry and Sindy went out of their way to make our stay as a memorable one and we will definitely be back.
Terry and sindy went above and beyond to ensure we had a smooth check in, in time for the wedding we attended in the area. The space was comfortable and clean and breakfast was lovely. They assisted with booking taxis and gave us a lift to the venue. Beautiful location,would definitely recommend!
Thank you Terry and Sindy. We really enjoyed staying with you. Terry, thank you for helping us with check in late and the local tips. Sindy, thank you for the amazing breakfast. Your garden is beginning to look very beautiful.
This was a particularly well thought out accommodation in pristine condition with tasteful decor.
Sindy&Terry's place is perfectly located to visit the North-East Lakes. The room and bathroom are absolutely perfect, spotless, comfy and tastefully decorated. You feel like home! Breakfast is a real treat, Sindy's homemade honey is simply delicious. Terry's knows the Lake District like the back of his hand and his tips on walking trails were precious to make the most of our weekend.
Highly recommend Terry and Sindy's place. We will be staying again in the future.
La Ruche was a great place to stay in The Lakes. Sparkling clean, very practical with its own entrance, drying closet, fair sized bathroom, very comfortable bed. We really enjoyed the stay and recommend it.
Sindy and Terry were wonderful hosts from the moment they collected us from the train station until they dropped us off after our three day stay. The room had its own entrance so you can come and go as you please, there’s a nice village pub and all the walks are on your doorstep so it’s perfectly located. We climbed Helvellyn and walked the Ulswater path to Glenridding and got the return steam boat which was lovely. Sindy was a superb cook and we had a full English breakfast each morning setting us up for the lovely walks. All in all, a fantastic stay and experience.
Awesome experience staying with Terry & Sindy! They are so hospitable and I would recommend to anyone
The room was clean, modern and well laid out with TV and WiFi. Location was fantastic, good local pub and only about 5/10 minutes from Ullswater. Terry and Sindy were lovely, quick responses leading up to the stay and so friendly and helpful whilst we were there. The breakfast (especially the homemade honey) is to die for. Can’t wait to book again!
Terry and Sindy are excellent hosts. The accommodation is so lovely and quiet. The room and facilities are spotless and clean. Fantastic hearty breakfast. Great location for visiting Pooley Bridge, Ullswater and Haweswater.
Terry and Sindy’s place was absolutely lovely. Immaculately clean, with a luxury, modern feel. The location is excellent; we chose to spend our one full day climbing Helvellyn and then having tea in Keswick - all around half an hour’s drive away. The local pub - the Queen’s Head is two minutes walk away and also very nice. The breakfast was excellent (including lovely honey from their own beehives!) and Terry and Sindy were incredibly kind and helpful hosts. We can’t think of anything we would improve. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others!
2 Jan - 4 Jan 2019
Everything was perfect! Terry and Sindy were both friendly and really helpful, the location was great, with a nice local pub and very quick drive to Ullswater (the best lake!). I would highly recommend their place to anyone reading.
27 Dec - 29 Dec 2018
Very welcoming and lovely and clean. Fantastic breakfast.
2 Dec - 3 Dec 2018
Great place to stay at the Lakes, Sindy & Terry are so nice and welcoming not to mention the cute dog. We would definitely come back anytime!
1 Dec - 2 Dec 2018
lovely clean home! sindy and Terry were really welcoming, close to the lake District so really handy, great local pub near by too.
24 Nov - 26 Nov 2018
Lovely little place to base yourself in the lake district. We stayed here in order to attend a wedding at Askham hall. Terry and Sindy were lovely and even offered to drop us to the wedding! the room itself is very stylish, clean and comfortable. It has it's own (very nice) bathroom and the breakfasts (and home made honey) are delicious. We will definitely be back.
16 Nov - 19 Nov 2018
We had a fantastic stay at Terry and Sindy’s the place was spotless and in a great location for exploring the lakes. We loved having a cooked breakfast every morning and we were very grateful that they were able to accommodate our 2 month year old baby Daisy. There was plenty of room for her cot and the room was spacious enough for all three of us to get ready for my friends wedding. All in all a great stay !
9 Nov - 10 Nov 2018
We definitely recommend a stay with Terry and Sindy who made us feel so welcome with their warm friendly hospitality. The room and facilities are immaculate and beautifully decorated and the breakfast was superb. They live in a beautiful village that is really peaceful and tranquil. A real pleasure to stay with these exceptional hosts.
3 Nov - 4 Nov 2018
Terry and Sindy were the perfect hosts. Such a lovely room and a wonderful breakfast! And to top it off the best homemade honey we've ever had. Went home with two jars and will be ordering more! Will happily come back to stay next time we are in the area.
2 Nov - 3 Nov 2018
Perfect for a stayover in the Lake District. The hosts are extremely hospitable. Terry gave me really good directions for seeing the Lake District and tips on where to hike. Sindy made an amazing veggie breakfast! I would definitely recommend their place to anyone!
27 Oct - 29 Oct 2018
We had a lovely weekend staying with Terry & Sindy. They really were wonderful hosts and Everything was exactly as described. Sindy’s full English breakfast is as good as advertised and Terry has a wealth of local knowledge for planning walks and how to get there, whether you want to take the short, challenging or picturesque route.
23 Oct - 25 Oct 2018
Sindy and Terry could not have been more welcoming and we wanted for nothing. The accommodation was immaculate, the breakfast delicious ( including Terry's home-made honey) and the view from the dining table over Sindy's manicured garden was a delight. We have no hesitation in highly recommending La Ruche to potential visitors.
20 Oct - 21 Oct 2018
This b&b is a gem!!! Absolutely beautiful! Beautifully presented, so many lovely little details all added together to make this a really lovely place to stay. We were visiting the area to attend a wedding 3 miles down the road. Sindy went above & beyond the call of a host to drive us there! How lovely! And W ith a private entrance we didn’t have to fret about making too much noise coming back home. The private bathroom was sparkling clean and breakfast was divine-as was their homemade honey from their beehives! A lovely treat and complimented throughout with lots of little bee trinkets! It’s a shame we were only staying for a night but this property is lovely and Terry & Sindy are deserving of their Superhost status!!! Enjoy your stay!
12 Oct - 13 Oct 2018
We needed to break a long journey and Terry and Sindy's home's in an ideal location for that - rural and vey quiet but a few minutes from the M6. Their village has a great pub (The Queens Head) nearby for good food and drink. The accommodation itself is pristine and the bed very comfortable indeed. The wall sockets with inbuilt USB charging points were useful. Breakfast included honey made by Terry from his own hives and it was so good we bought some. Sindy and Terry are warm and welcoming hosts and we'd certainly recommend La Ruche
Warm welcome from Terry and Sindy who were kind enough to let us arrive early to fit around our getting to a wedding at Askham Hall. Beautiful room and a really lovely breakfast. Would not hesitate to recommend a stay here to friends and family.
Absolutely wonderful stay at La Ruche. The accommodation and facilities were immaculate and very comfortable and Sindy and Terry were extremely hospitable and accommodating, especially as we booked at very short notice. Couldn’t have been better, thanks so much for such a lovely…Read more
Wow ! Super posh room ,amazing comfy bed ,private bathroom and entrance ,your own little annexe ! Friendly helpful hosts and a nice pub short walk away
Sindy and Terry's B & B is just perfect. The bedroom and bathroom are immaculate and the breakfast was scrummy. They are very genuine lovely people who were considerate hosts. Such a comfortable home, I would absolutely stay again.
Fantastic hosts, the room was faultless and the breakfast was perfect for long walks throughout the days.
Meet with super hosts. Hospitality, efficiency, cleanliness and privacy. Excellent facilities.
It was wonderful time in Cumbria. Terry and Sindy are great hosts. Room with very comfortable bed and bathroom was just perfect for us two. We also had the best english breakfast ever! We will definitely be back for next break. Thank you Terry and Sindy for sharing your home
Lovely people , very welcoming. Room was spotless and breakfast was spot on. Great location for exploring the Lakes .
Sindy and Terry were great. They went above and beyond what I would expect. Their place is sparkling clean and very convenient for exploring. Their tips and recommendations made all the difference.
I tried to find something I could mention here as a constructive critique, but failed. Contact and comments before arrival 1st class. I particularly like the inclusion of USB charging points. Terry and Sindy's local comments very helpful. We will be back.
Sindy and Terry were very welcoming and helpful. Many thanks
Sindy and Terry were great hosts. Excellent accommodation, extremely comfortable bed and delicious breakfast. Highly recommended!
If cleanliness is high on your priority list then this is the place for you. It is prestine with the most comfortable bed and luxurious bed linen. Beautiful gardens with an abundance of plants, flowers and birds. Terry and Sindy were very welcoming and accommodating. Sindy cooked a wonderful breakfast to start our day which included honey from their own bees. Any guests will love the 'bee' breakfast accompaniments - we did! We stayed to attend a party 5 miles away and Terry kindly drove us there. We would recommend La Ruche to anybody visiting the Lake District!
Terry and Sindy are fantastic hosts, very friendly and welcoming. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. It was well decorated and had nice touches such as books and maps of the local area, tea and coffee making facilities and Wi-Fi. The breakfast was fantastic. In the evening we ate at the Queens Head down the road on Terry and Sindy's recommendation and it was brilliant, good fresh food and pleasant atmosphere. We look forward to visiting again soon.
A beautiful and quiet spot perfect for a lakes getaway! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The breakfasts were delicious, the bed was the most comfortable thing ive ever slept on, and Terry & Sindy were the perfect hosts. Would book again with no hesitation.
Absolutely fantastic. Location is perfect (beautiful views towards a field and the house is away from the hustle and bustle). Super clean and spacious. Amazing breakfast and delightful hosts. Plenty of privacy but Terry and Sindy were lovely to chat with and gave great local tips. Exactly what you want in a BnB. Outstanding value and we wish we could have stayed longer.
Martin And Debra
Our stay with Sindy & Terry was truly excellent. The guest room, en suite and breakfast rooms were meticulously presented. Tea and coffee making facilities were provided in the room. Breakfast included a choice of healthy cereals, orange juice and fresh coffee, followed by a perfectly cooked English breakfast and toast with honey from Terry's own bees - lovely and very interesting. Surrounding the house are beautifully maintained gardens. From the breakfast window cows can be seen grazing in the fields beyond, idyllic :-) And the location is absolutely stunning. William Wordsworth said it best, "the loveliest spot that man hath found"
Very comfortable, well appointed and spotlessly clean self contained space. Hosts really nice and breakfast was great.
Terry and Sindy were lovely hosts. Warm welcome after a long 8 hour drive, beautiful breakfast and even a lift to the wedding we were attending! Would definitely recommend.
We booked this location as we were attending a nearby event. Very friendly and accommodating hosts. Rooms maintained to a very high standard and spotlessly clean. Great breakfast. Would have no hesitation in returning.
Had a lovely stay! Terry and Sindy were very accommodating and warm. Breakfast was fantastic and Sindy was more than happy to offer a vegan breakfast for myself and a full English for my partner. The annex provided us with our own space and we could come and go as we needed. Location was fab, lovely village with a cosy local pub and a short scenic drive to Pooley Bridge and Ulswater. Would love to stay again!
Amazing experience. The room was clean, the bed comfortable and the breakfast delicious. Great location to access Lake District. Terry & Sindy were fantastic; you must go and try their homemade honey!
Fantastic hospitality. Superb breakfast. Bedroom and all facilities absolutely spotless. Would recommend to anybody thinking of staying in the Lake District.
Fantastic location, exceptionally clean, cosy and comfy accommodation. Delicious breakfasts and lovely hosts always willing to help. Couldn't recommend more!
My second stay this year at La Ruche because it is perfect for my Lake District needs - quiet; easy to get to and from; really comfy beds; amazing hospitality; great local knowledge and brilliant food. I booked very last minute (less than 24 hours notice) but had instant replies from Sindy & Terry and they are so welcoming! Once again I would completely recommend this luxurious and friendly B&B to anyone wanting to see some of the Lake District from a comfy base.
Sindy and Terry were amazing, hospitality 10 out of 10!!! The most cleanest and comfortable B&B I have ever been! We had an amazing time!!! Thank you so much !!! Xx Highly Recommended!! We will return back !!! Xx
Great place to stay and explore the Lake District area. Terry and Sindy were very welcoming hosts where the breakfast was like in a michelin-star restaurants :) All good, highly recommend.
Terry and Sidny were great hosts! Terry recommended a hike in the local area that we really enjoyed. The bed was very comfy, the room was clean and Sidny put together a lovely breakfast! Thanks for the wonderful stay!
Everything was spotlessly clean and it was good to have our own access. The bedroom is quite small, but we did have the beds made up as singles which takes up a little more space. It was nice to be able to walk to the local pub in the evenings for a meal.
A super place, spotlessly clean and in walking distance of a nice eating pub. Sindy and Terry and very thoughtful hosts and offer a lovely room with a superb breakfast. Thank you :)
So pleased that we chose Terry & Sindy's for our stay in the Lake District. The whole experience was very good from booking to checking out. An important factor for us was the complete privacy provided, with the clean and very comfortable guest accommodation having its own entrance. Terry & Sindy are great hosts, who made us feel very welcome in their home . This property is located close to what we consider to be the most picturesque part of the Lake District, the drive from Pooley Bridge alongside Ullswater is quite breathtaking. Must also mention breakfast, which was wonderful. Would fully recommend and would not hesitate to return in future.
A very warm and welcoming place to stay! We were very looked after and the accomodation was spotless. A very comfy, homely accomodation to come back to after a walk in the mountians. Breakfast is 10/10.
First, the place is amazing. It is so clean and tidy that it can surely surpass a lot of 5-star hotels. It is what is described by Sindy and Terry. Cozy room and beautiful pictures as decoration of the room. The bathroom is spacious and clean, with brand new bathing facilities. Second, they both are very friendly and helpful. Sindy sent me an mail asking for our request for breakfast and knowing that it was the first time for us to be in England, she made us a full English breakfast which was so great and we even did not need to have lunch, so full. Terry told us a lot about the route, which was really helpful. Third, the view outside and inside the house is fabulous. The window can give us a view of a hill, which is like a painting. And the dog is cute. All in all, you cannot help giving compliment here and also cannot hide your excitement because it is really worth it. My husband even said that we cannot use money to buy such an experience. So great.
Terry and Sindy (with Maggie the family dog) have been most friendly host we have ever met. My wife and I have had a great stay here, the room is independently laid out and very clean (newly renovated). I have been to many hotels on business trip and without doubt, this is hotel standard equating to some of the best hotels cleanliness and comfort. The place is easily accesible by car, very close to Pooley Bridge and conveniently accesible to nearby scenic spots. I highly recommend that you try staying here. Excellent !!
Very friendly and helpful hosts..We had a commute problem and they were kind enough to help us and do the pick up from the station.The room was very clean.overall loved their place and service.
Had a great couple of nights. Terry and Sindy were lovely hosts. Room really clean, great location and fantastic veggie breakfast! We had lovely weather too so great views at breakfast. Thanks
This pristine, tastefully decorated home with a beautiful view was only surpassed by how welcome our hosts made us feel. We had restful sleeps on the comfortable bed that was in a private area of the home. There are plenty of sightseeing and hiking opportunities close by and there is a charming, old pub within walking distance which was very handy. The homemade breakfast was delicious and served with honey from their own hives. We would highly recommend staying here and hope to return again.
Terry and Sindy's hospitality was the best I've had with airbnb, they were completely calm and accommodating about my very late arrival, provided a warm welcome, great breakfast and beautiful accommodation. This is as good as it gets with airbnb!
We stayed here whilst attending a wedding in Dacre church. Sindy and Terry's place is immaculate. The bedroom was exceptionally clean, as is the bathroom. The bed is so comfy. We didn't use it but there is a TV and tea/coffee making facilities. We had our own access to the room. Sindy cooked us an amazing and huge breakfast in the morning. The room overlooks the garden and the bee hives that Terry and Sindy have. They served delicious honey which they had made themselves with breakfast! Then Terry gave us a lift to collect our car which we'd left at the wedding venue - so kind and above and beyond expectations. Thanks so much to you both for a great stay!
Superbly relaxing, quiet stay at Sindy & Terrys home. They were so welcoming upon arrival and respective of privacy once we'd settled in. Everything was spotlessly clean and room was kitted up with everything we needed. We'd love to go back and stay again soon!
Room was extremely clean and tidy, good location, great local pub and a lovely welcome - highly recommended!
Sindy and Terry were fantastic hosts! On arrival we were met with a very warm welcome and shown to our room, which was spotless and extremely comfortable, as well as our bathroom, also spotless! Each morning we were treated to a delicious cooked breakfast with fresh pots of steaming tea and coffee, though cereal, fruit and toast were also an option. As the accommodation is an extension of the main house we were given our own key so that we could come and go as we pleased, however Sindy and Terry were both on hand to point us in the right direction with some great local knowledge. We are already looking forward to our next trip.
Immaculate and welcoming place to stay with great pub round the corner. Only there for one night but very comfortable with enormous breakfast in morning. Lovely hosts.
Great place, spotless and comfortable. Great breakfast and hoasts.
You won't find a better night's accommodation. Lovely hosts, superb room and bathroom and a great breakfast. Highly recommended
Immaculate, comfortable accommodation. Excellent hosts, excellent pub in walking distance. Quiet but with easy access to main roads. We would stay again.
Terry and Sindy are lovely hosts and we really enjoyed our stay. The accommodation was exactly as described, we particularly liked the nice, comfortable bed. It was a real treat to be able to experience Terry and Sindy's own 'homegrown' honey for breakfast. We appreciated the great pub recommendation too and would love to stay again.
Terry and Sindy's place met our requirements absolutely perfectly. The room was cozy and had a very comfortable bed, and the bathroom was also in great condition and very clean. Breakfast time was flexible to suit us, and the quality of the food was very good too. Terry and Sindy were happy to chat to us and on hand to offer us advice when we needed tips for the local area. It was lovely to have the privicy of our own front door and key to our part of the house, so we werent worried about disturbing Terry and Sindy with our comings and goings. All in all, a very good b n b experience!
Private B&B in a farming community. Separate entrance for guests. Close to lakes in the Lake District. We were just passing through and did not get a chance to enjoy nearby activities.
Terry and Sindy were very friendly, with good suggestions on where to go. Terry explained to us about his bees and we tried some of his delicious honey. Good location, close to pooley bridge. Would love to stay again.
We can't add anything more to what others have already said except to echo that is truly a great place, exceptionally clean and friendly with great facilities and a breakfast which could not be beat. The bed is also the comfiest ever! Also real country pub within walking distance which we had two great meals in.
Great stay at La Ruche, this was our first trip to the Lakes - ideal location a very short drive away from Ullswater lake where you can pick up the Ullswater way trail (and 3 pubs!) Not far from Keswick either. Tasty breakfast and really comfy bed helps too! Sindy and Terry made an effort to chat every morning and gave us some handy tips. Would definitely recommend.
New, comfortable, magnificent breakfast. Pub within an easy walk, Lake Diatrict a short drive. Highly recommend this B&B.
Lovely welcome, beautiful gardens and great breakfast. Worth the trip
Every aspect of booking with Sindy & Terry was efficient and helpful. The room is exactly as shown on the advert, in a lovely location near Ullswater. Sindy's breakfast was better than a hotel, hands down! We really enjoyed our stay, very comfortable lodgings.
Had a lovely time! Fantastic hosts. Very friendly and helpful. I know all about bees too now. Strangely off to St Bees today!!!Great cooked breakfast! Arguably the cleanest place I've ever been to. Would love to visit again.
Terry & Sindy are an amazing couple and we loved everything from our stay. The house was super nice and clean, and the region is a great place to visit for a long weekend. Breakfast was also great and they picked us up at the train station which was very helpful.
Sindy and Terry are outstanding hosts who have designed their space with very high standards. Literally everything actually sparkles clean! Breakfast was gallumptuously delicious and the bed was pure dreamland luxury. A pleasure to spend time with them. A font of knowledge from a longstanding Lakes lad of many years. Excellent guidance and advice for a beautiful part of the world.
I highly recommend staying at Terry and Sindy's B&B if you're ever in the area! They made our stay that much more enjoyable, from offering to give us lifts to suggesting places to see, they were beyond helpful! Gorgeous views and a lovely space to come back to after enjoying a day in Cumbria!
Lovely couple, lovely room in a very picturesque area and a delicious breakfast
Sindy and Terry's place was wonderful. Terry was very informative about the lakes district, recommending some great walks. Sindy cooked a full English breakfast for us . The bed was very comfortable and the room immaculate.
This was a great home to stay in for a short break. Beautiful home, great location, lovely hosts, and delicious breakfast (including Terry's honey). Terry & Sindy were very accommodating and went out of their way to make sure our trip was enjoyable: from picking us up to giving us handy tips. I would highly recommend. Thank you both!
Absolutely brilliant place to stay for a visit to the Lake District. Sindy and Terry were so friendly and welcoming. They put in so much effort to make sure our trip was perfect. Really comfy beds, excellent amenities and facilities and a fantastic breakfast to get you going in the morning. Everything was well set up and organised and Terry &a Sindy had great local knowledge and advice about where to go. I will definitely be staying here when I next visit the Lakes!
Words cannot describe how wonderful this home is! Everything, absolutely everything is upscale, elegant, clean, beautiful! Don't hesitate to book with Terry and Sindy. Extraordinary hosts!
What a wonderful couple! This entire trip we have been blessed with such lovely people and Terry and Sindy were one of them! The BEST breakfast I have had in England! We were pleased with the English breakfast as we are from the states and don't have many English breakfast options over there. They helped us find fun spots to see and recommended areas for more scenic drives through the Lake District! Lovely room, lovely food, but most of all lovely people! 10 stars!! (If we could!)
Great hosts! Would highly recommend :)
Amazing place to stay! Really clean, very close to the Lake, and the local restaurants and pubs! I would highly recommend it!
Lovely, self-contained room. Very clean and presentable. Sindy cooked a lovey breakfast both days. Sindy and Terry are absolutely lovely and so attentive. Thank you both!
Terry and Sindy's place is a must if you are looking for an amazing spot on the NorthEast side of the Lake District. They are just minutes from Pooley Bridge and Granny's for afternoon tea and a fresh scone! From the moment we arrived, they had everything ready and were very warm and inviting. Everything is absolutely immaculate! First class! The room is very cozy and has its own separate bathroom/shower and entrance/exit so you can come and go as you please-huge plus! Additionally, they provided maps and books about the area and recommendations for food. We drove and then hiked to a nearby waterfall they recommended. Super awesome! Terry and Sindy are very familiar with the lakes, paths and mountains. The breakfast was wonderful and included fresh honey from one of Terry's beehives. Well worth the stay! Thank you Terry and Sindy!
