Also it's only a 15 minute walk away from Bowness and the lake. The staff are friendly but also professional making you feel very much at home when you arrive. The... More

We have just returned from a wonderful three days at The Ravensworth. Nick, Cheryl and the rest of the staff were very attentive and the location could not have been more convenient for us. The room was lovely with a great shower. Breakfast was super too.

My particular high spot was the quality of the cooked to order breakfast. My first morning I had the full cumbrian -- it kept me filled up til mid afternoon. The 2nd morning the Salmon on Scrambled eggs and toasted muffins - were a lighter option chosen as we were travelling - equally satisfying and as tasty as the full... More

We booked into The Ravensworth for the night of 27th May.
