We are thrilled to have been awarded ‘Best Guest Accommodation/Bed and Breakfast in England 2011’ by Visit England, and we would love you to stay with us at Number 43 and discover Arnside, Cumbria’s hidden gem. On the edge of the Lake District, very accessible by road and main line rail service.

Sally Shalam, The Guardian, 'It is, quite simply, one of the most stunning views I have come across, whatever the time of day, or season, right here on Lesley's doorstep, is pure theatre, the principal players, water, sky and weather, constantly changing.'

Fiona Griffiths, The Independent, 'This five-star boutique guesthouse sits on the estuary of the River Kent offering stylish, comfortable accommodation enhanced by a breathtaking panorama, across the Kent Estuary towards the Lakeland Fells.'

Coast Magazine, 'You may feel embarrassed about ordering buck's fizz at breakfast. Luckily at Number 43 it is served on a Sunday as a matter of course. This epitomises the laid-back feel of Number 43.'

Nigel Tidsall, The Telegraph, 'Arnside sits in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that includes Silverdale, where Elizabeth Gaskell came to holiday, and Arnside Knott, a popular walking spot owned by the National Trust. It is a village where life still feels bewitchingly close to nature, alarms ring a warning when the tide comes rushing in, and two-carriage trains regularly rattle their way across the water on a misty viaduct.'

Paul Croughton, Sunday Times, 'The village of Arnside is unusually calm, even for Cumbria, and Number 43’s five individually turned-out rooms, do nothing to jar you from your reverie. Our favourite is suite two, with a double-ended bath under a large feature window where you can spot birds, bathing or otherwise, out on the estuary.'

Stephen McClarence, The Observer, 'I take a train around the Bay to stay at Number 43, a luxurious boutique guest house that runs to cafeteria’s of coffee in the bedrooms. It's in Arnside, a smart village where I spend my morning walking a blissfully quiet shoreline patrolled by swans and herons.'

Join together with friends and family, and let us provide everything you need to relax, unwind and catch up in style.

Check in is before 1.00pm at Weekends and Bank Holidays. Before 6.30 pm Mon-Fri. After we receive your booking we will contact you by telephone for your card details to take your deposit, without your deposit we cannot confirm your booking
