Our third annual family weekend at the Scarthwaite, 16 of us filling all the lovely clean and comfortable rooms with another 20 joining us for the Saturday. Always a very warm welcome from Michael and staff and nothing is too much trouble for them. They coped with a 1 year old and a birthday as well as a fair amount... More

The bedrooms are very dated and the beds were very uncomfotable. Food in the restauarant was also not brilliant, the bar had no atmosphere even to a point where i had to... More

LeeF, Thank you for choosing the Scarthwaite Hotel for your stay. I’m pleased to see that you found the rooms were clean. The house is nearly 160 years old and we have decorated and furnished it in a style that is in keeping with its era. We prefer that individuality to a homogenous corporate look and feel, but we do...

We had a lovely 2 night stay here and will differently stay again. The hotel is exactly as described, situated in lovely surroundings with very helpful and efficient staff. The hotel has 7 rooms and really is an old country house. We had the Cedar room which had a spar bath as well as shower plus all the high stand... More

A fantastic welcome awaited us by the receptionist Chris. Nothing seemed too much problem. The room was beautifully decorated and smelt freshly painted. A lovely log fire was laid out in the bar and the restaurant had a romantic feel with candles in every table. We will be coming back as we are enjoying our stay. Thank you Scarfwaite!

brilliant overnight stop; in a comfy, fresh, massive, lovely lovely room; well kept beers and great local food. absolute heaven in a quiet spot, simply superb. this family run hotel is a must for anyone preferring a quality stay off the beaten track, at a realistic price, probably undercharged for the attention we received.
