Breakfast is complimentary and service is great! Only a tiny recommendation: the water in the pool (they have an inside pool) could be warmer during... More

With the warmest of welcomes and a quick tour of the house we settled into our spacious double room. The en-suite was fitted out with a modern luxurious shower and basin with expensive looking wall tiles. There... More

My son and I stayed here during the February 2015 half-term. The pool was fantastic and my son loved that, helped to keep him entertained. Location is great and you can easily see the beauty of the landscape in Windermere. Enjoyed a great meal at the Bistro at the top of the road, wonderfully fresh and staff were friendly. Kate...

After speaking to Barry on the phone we were offered a small reduction in price for booking direct - great start. When we arrived, we were greeted by Jasmine who booked us in and showed us around -... More

We are very disappointed that this guest’s stay fell short of her expectations. However, in response to her comments we’d like to explain the following: We have twin rooms of different sizes and the guest in question chose the classic twin rather than the superior twin which is a smaller room with a smaller en-suite and this is reflected in...
