We have affiliate relationships with several booking agencies. One advantage of using our sites is that we are not restricted to accommodation promoted through a single agency or in a single company’s ownership. We can select from a wide range to give a better coverage.

We do not book accommodation directly ourselves. After clicking on a link and transferring to the site of a booking agency, if you then book accommodation your contract is with that organisation or those organisations. We try to ensure that information on this site is accurate and helpful but we can give no warranties. We cannot know your requirements and therefore can give no guarantee of your satisfaction. Please exercise your own due diligence in choosing and booking accommodation.

You should be aware that we receive modest commission payments from the agencies to whom we refer you. This is not allowed to influence our comments on places to stay or any reviews that we may occasionally publish. These are as objective and unbiased as we can make them. We try to be helpful but, again, you must apply your own due diligence.

Having said all that, we hope that you will have a wonderful stay, enjoying traditional Cumbrian hospitality.
