Telegraph Expert Rating (Louise Gray): 8/10

This is bed and breakfast at its best: comfortable rooms, friendly hosts and a knock-out breakfast. As the overflow from the Lake District trickles south, expect excellent accommodation in charming towns like Arnside to take up the slack.

“Our favorite is room two, with a double-ended bath under a large feature window where you can spot birds - bathing or otherwise - out on the estuary. They've forgotten to come up with a snappy name for this boutique guesthouse, but if you had knockout views over the Kent estuary to the Lakeland Fells, you'd be distracted too.”

10 Best Seaside Hotels for a Treat
"For Weekend Ramblers..You may feel embarrased 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. 1890's Victorian on the outside, but full of cool contempory inside, including Philippe Starck objects and splashes of Designer Guild."

 
Stephen McClarence, The Observer.

"I take a train around the Bay to stay at Number 43, a luxurious 'boutique guest house' that runs to cafeitiers of coffee in the bedrooms. It's in Arnside, a smart vilage where I spend my morning walking a blisfully quiet shoreline patrolled by Swans and Herons."
