Bed & Breakfast, Eskdale designed with families in mind!

Bed & Breakfast, Eskdale

Double Bedroom

Stanley House Bed & Breakfast, Eskdale is the perfect place for a relaxing Bed & Breakfast holiday.  Designed with families in mind, we offer all the freedom of a self-catering holiday without tying you into a longer stay and with far less housework! (While you might not see us, we magically tidy around you).

Our “Bed and breakfast but better” approach is perfect for those of you with fussy little eaters.  While breakfast is cooked and served for you (Breakfast Menu), you can make full use of the open plan kitchen, dining area and well-stocked Open Larder for the rest of the day to prepare your own snacks and meals.

There’s lots of space from large bedrooms and family suites, to comfortable public lounges and huge gardens. The sitting rooms are a great place for parents to relax with a glass of wine in the evenings while their little ones sleep soundly upstairs. Treat the place as your own and create some fun family memories for the future.  Oh, did we mention, steam trains pass the front door! Extra beds, cots, high-chairs, baby baths and even a steriliser can be provided on request.

We’re Dog Friendly!
