About us

Our ethos at Glenville House is to create a unique homely, comfortable atmosphere where adults can relax, unwind and rejuvenate away from the hustle and bustle of general life. Throughout our married life we always came to the South Lakes to do just that!! . So many places cater for families and pets but we wanted a bolt hole just for you…..

Peter and I, previously a builder and a driving instructor, purchased the guest house in May 2013 as we wanted to work together and to open our own little refuge. We both grew up, married and brought up our children in the pretty village of Newton by the Sea on the beautiful North Northumberland coastline.

In 2013, we were awarded 4 Stars Gold for our accommodation and high standards as well as receiving the breakfast award by the AA. And, we have continued to improve our accommodation on an annually basis.

We both hope you’ll come and visit us soon
