Johnby Hall is a great Wolsey Lodge bed and breakfast (B&B) from which to explore all that Penrith and the Lake District has to offer. Steeped in history, the Elizabethan manor house started life around 1350 as a fortified pele tower and has belonged to the Howard family since 1783. It is now home to Henry and Anna Howard who welcome bed and breakfast guests looking for a comfortable base from which to enjoy the Lake District, Eden Valley and beyond.

Located in a pretty cottage in the garden, the Studio is a luxury open-plan suite offering superbly comfortable double or twin accommodation; an extra occasional bed in the sitting-room area makes this a great option for families. (A cot and toddler bed are also available.) Kelly is in a seventeenth-century wing of the house and offers twin or double B&B accommodation arrangements, with its own delightful sitting room. Breakfast is taken in the stunning ‘great hall’ where the history of the house is evident all around you, from family coats of arms to antique oak furniture and carefully-preserved architectural features.

Guests will meet the free range chickens and rare breed pigs, and can explore the extensive gardens and woodlands which are full of wildlife including red squirrels and deer.

Your B&B Hosts

Your hosts at this Lake District B&B are Henry and Anna Howard. Both are part-time professional musicians – Henry is a tenor and Anna is a harpist and soprano. (Musical guests feel especially at home here, and can enjoy playing the pianos in the Studio and great hall.) Henry, Anna and their young family are dedicated to ensuring a warm and friendly welcome for their B&B guests and helping them to appreciate all that the lake District, Cumbria and Yorkshire has to offer.
