Charming , family owned and managed hotel. Michael greeted us and our room was clean and a good size, we had the comfort room with shower. We ate at night and the food was home cooked , tasty and good value. Drinks are also a reasonable price and there is a big roaring fire in the lounge. Michaels son served... More

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.

The hotel was very clean & comfortable, with very helpful staff and not overheated in the bedroom. James, in particular, was an excellent one man show - receptionist, barman and waiter - who was more than willing to offer advice and give suggestions. The evening meal menu was extensive and the food well prepared with generous portions. A pleasure to... More

A really good choice on our way north. A lovely,friendly reception. Our room was very comfortable and well equiped. The evening meal was very good and chosen from an extensive menu. Breakfast was very good indeed and freshly cooked. Great value for money. Quiet, peaceful with good parking.

Regular visits to our daughter at Lancaster Uni has resulted in us staying at a number of hotels in Lancaster. The Scarthwaite has been the best to date. The welcome from James was warm and genuine, carrying our bags to the room. We stayed in The Cedar Room which was spacious, freshly decorated and chic. The new bathroom with jacuzzi... More
