Helen-&-IanAbout Us

Hello – we are the Burt family!

Ian & Helen Burt (left), our children Liana & Garfield, their other halves and our four grandsons. We bought The Old Vicarage in 1989 after meeting in the Lakes years before and falling in love with the place. When we bought The Old Vicarage it was a 7 bedroom house and we have since extended it a few times and added a swimming pool. We now have 16 bedrooms, including 4 suites, one being a garden suite.

As a family we love welcoming people into our Bed & Breakfast and have regulars that have been coming for over 20 years! Some of our regulars have grown up coming to The Old Vicarage and that is why we feel it is such a special place. Being very family and dog orientated ourselves we are very welcoming of all ages and look forward to welcoming your four-legged friends too.

We also have a few dogs in the family who you might see about the grounds: the little one is Oscar the Yorky-sausage, we also have Mindi the British Inuit and Hank the Irish Wolfhound.

The business is now run by us and our children Liana & Garfield as well as our fantastic team who will be serving breakfast and helping you out with anything you might need. We are also keen walkers and like to explore the area with both our dogs and our grandsons, so we can advise on places to walk and things to do.

We are looking forward to meeting you!
