Bessiestown B&B - ExteriorBessiestown B&B in Cumbria - Exterior

A warm welcome with a taste of Cumbrian luxury awaits you in our beautiful, award winning, guest house and self catering holiday cottages, situated near Carlisle. Guests to Bessiestown enjoy many of the luxuries of a fine hotel combined with the relaxed atmosphere of a family bed and breakfast.

Bessiestown is a luxurious retreat, in the heart of Border Reiver country - the Debatable Lands - a relaxing and refreshing base from which to explore some of the most beautiful countryside in northern England. The Border City of Carlisle, the Lake District, Hadrian’s Wall, Kielder Water and Forest, Solway Coast as well as Gretna Green, famous the world over for romantic weddings and the Borders of Scotland are all in easy reach. The landscape on the doorstep is well worth exploring too.

Choose from our spacious Dove Cote honeymoon suite or one of our luxurious guest bedrooms on a bed and breakfast basis and make the most of local produce, with a Cumbrian breakfast that will keep you going all day. You may book a delicious evening meal which shares the same focus on high quality ingredients, traditional recipes and exceptional home cooking.

Also available is a self catering option in one of our courtyard cottages.
Bessiestown is ideally placed as a stop over on the way to or from Scotland but take our advice and make yours a longer stay - so many visitors in the past have come back time after time to explore the local countryside and to enjoy our hospitality.
