Booked a week in The Coach House. Fantastic Location especially if you have a dog as we did. Plenty of walks along the lake from the cottage and we were very lucky with the weather so it was very pleasant. The location is very quiet with a lot of wildlife to be seen. The cottage is located behind the hotel... More

Lovely hotel, with such a beautiful outlook but unfortunately customer service is seriously lacking. After paying a deposit to return the following year, they would not give a receipt but promised an acknowledgement by email. This was back in September 2014 & we are still waiting. We phoned back in March to ask about receipt & booking & were told... More

My wife and I rang the hotel after seeing the reviews and booked a room and were upgraded to a lake view room. What a fantastic view! The room was lovely with new large tv and new queen size bed. Very comfortable. Family owned. Breakfast very good. 4 miles south of Keswick. If you want to relax and sleep well... More

Beautiful views and gardens. Well worth the stay for the views. Stayed in room 7 which was quite large. Avoid this room as it was cold even though the radiators were on fully. Also, it is above the bar so we couldn't settle to sleep until the bar was empty. The hotel was very clean and the staff attentive. The... More

On arrival we couldn't help but be overwhelmed at the setting, absolutely beautiful. We booked a king size room at £140 for one nights bnb. The room was a good size and we were told the bathroom had just been refurbished. All seemed well until we came back from a walk by the lake. Feeling cold and the room being... More

We booked a junior suite through booking.com and what a good choice it was. We had room 5 which was just lovely. We had a beautiful view of Thirlmere and the place was so quiet we immediately felt relaxed. The hotel had it's quirky bits and bobs, namely sloping floors but I like that and what do you expect with... More

My wife and I stayed for 4 nights and were delighted with the place. We were upgraded to a lake view room which was absolutely spotless and a view straight across the lawns to the lake. Modern bathroom and shower with all the little touches ( Shampoo, shower gel & cap etc. ) Good hairdryer, nice size flat screen tv.... More

We arrived to no coat hangars, no kettle and very limited kitchen facilities. Seal on oven broken, one shelf. How many ovens arrive with only one shelf?? Hotel owners who manage all the self catering cottages helpful and apologetic, " we don't check the cupboards each time", why not?? But lovely situation with wonderful views over Thirlmere and cosy and... More
