Stayed here for one night 22/8/2014, as going to a wedding reception in the Lakes. We had 2 rooms, both lovely. Staff were very helpful. Lovely setting. Breakfast was not up to standard though. It could have been served warmer.

My room was on the ground floor which I liked as they had doors that opened on to a small terrace and a view of the gazebo and lawns, I have stayed here before,... More
