Lazonby Hall

A hidden treasure, offering a peaceful and tranquil environment…

This outstanding luxury Wolsey Lodge was built in 1848 from ornate local sandstone and has the distinct style of a French château. It is set in formal grounds with mature trees, a folly and extensive gardens to explore. This grand Victorian Hall is a family home as much as a bed and breakfast, it is furnished with antiques and boasts wonderful views of the River Eden and the high Pennines.

On arrival guests enjoy fireside refreshments in the panelled drawing room or on the terrace, depending on the season. Upstairs, the two guest bedrooms are prettily furnished in classic style, one king-size double with en-suite bath and monsoon shower, the other a twin with private bathroom. There’s no shortage of space here nor any luxury spared.

Breakfasts is served in the elegant dining room overlooking the garden or in summer if guests wish, out on the terrace. Only the finest local produce is used and there is the option of dinner as well, just be sure to inform your hosts beforehand.

Your B&B Hosts

Your host Madeleine is UK born but educated in Tasmania. She is a good cook and as well as preparing delicious breakfasts will also, by prior arrangement, provide her guests with an evening meal. She is happy to recommend local hostelries and country walks (many of which are on the doorstep). She and her journalist husband, their two children, and two friendly dachshunds clearly love sharing their fabulous family home.


Just north of the Lakes but easy to avoid the crowds, this area warrants more than overnight stops en route to or from Scotland. Lazonby, on the famous Settle - Carlisle line, has a public outdoor heated pool in summer. There are lakes, stately homes, gardens, race meetings, festivals, walks and cycling routes galore in this picturesque part of Cumbria.
