Stayed for three days for both leisure and business. Nothing was too much trouble. Rooms were faultless and bathrooms modern and well designed. Good place to travel to lakes and coast.

Fantastic stay with colleagues. Mick made us so welcome. The rooms were faultless - comfy beds, lovely bathrooms, free wi-fi, plenty of space. Gorgeous freshly cooked breakfast - and lunch and evening meals were generous and delicious. The teapot collection made for interesting conversation! Really couldn't fault the place and would love to go back for a non-work stay.

We arrived at dusk on Friday evening & after we'd parked up were warmly greeted at the door by Mick with a warm handshake. He even said "welcome home" and home from home it proved to be. The rooms were very clean comfortable & well equipped. After freshening up we met in the bar for a nightcap were we had... More

Had not been here for two years. What a pleasure to be back and chat to Mick who is such a considerate host. The quality of the food was as good as ever. Full marks to Mick and his team for remaining one of the hidden gems on the northern fringe of the Lakes. It will not be two years... More
