We will look forward to welcoming all of our Guests in 2024,

new and those who are returning to 

Stafford House

Guest House,

and also to our

Self-Catering Lodges




With the "Utmost Safety" of all our

Guests in mind, 

we still continue to take every precaution possible, including following the "Updated Guidelines" from the Government

so that we can 

open for Business

- Safely!


During the 1st Lockdown in March 2020, we invested in a

"Fogging Machine"

By useing a special solution certified

to kill ALL Viral 

& Bacterial Infections,

(should there be any present),

We are confident that we can operate as safe as we possibly can be.  


We also meticulously clean and sanitise all areas, before finishing with a "Steam Cleaner"

making sure that everything is safe.


There are Hand Sanitisers in all 3 Bedrooms, as well the Breakfast Room in the Main House.

The Lodges also have Hand Sanitisers in the Kitchen. 


Thank You For

Your Custom and Patience, 

and we will look forward to seeing you all again very soon.




Please be aware that unfortunately we do not allow pets into the main building of

"Stafford House",


However you are more than welcome to bring them along when you are staying in our Lodges



Our En-Suite Double Room in the Main House has now been appointed with a Kingsize 4 Poster Bed, there is also wooden pannelling on some of the walls.

We hope that you will like the changes!   


After the 3rd Lockdown we were allowed to re-open our Lodges on 12th April 2021, and we have made a few changes..


Blencathra Lodge now sleeps 2 People, and Pennine Lodge can sleep up to 6 People.


Check out the Lodge Section to see what we have done!

For the last 6 years we have achieved the "Certificate of Excellence" award from Tripadvisor, so in recognition of that we now appear in their

"Hall of Fame!"
