Parkfield is a great guesthouse well located to both the town and Derwent water. The hosts John and Susan are lovely folk and looked after us well. Breakfast was delicious starting off with fresh fruit and yoghurt (there are other choices) before the Cumbrian fry-up! Parking can either be on the road in front or privately at the rear or...
