We had 2 nights at this hotel 1 week apart. The first night we were in a very large room with a lovely big bathroom. The hotel was clean and welcoming. Evening meal was very good and the breakfast was even better. The 2nd nights stay was a smaller room with a tiny bathroom but serviceable. It is just off... More

After staying in Carnforth before on a diving weekend in another hotel we were left wanting a better hotel that could accomodate our dog but at a good value. We looked on Trip Advisor and found this hotel. Upon ringing and enquiring about bringing our dog to arriving and asking for somewhere to hang our diving gear, we were left... More

Visited recently for my sister graduation. Hotel staff Very lovey, gentleman on the desk welcoming and kind and very happy to help giving us directions to the university. Rooms were quite small but of a decent size as it was just one night, bathroom was small but for one visit wasn't a problem. Hotel traditional but pretty decor. At night... More

Made to feel welcome from the moment we parked the car outside. Excellent facilities, staff and service. The room was very clean and catered perfectly for all our needs with hair dryer, iron and kettle. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anybody looking for a relaxing stay. The cooked breakfast really was the cherry on top.

On our way to a camping cycling holiday in the Peak District, we stayed at the Scarthwaite when our car broke down on the M6 and needed a bed for the night while our car was being repaired.The owner and his son were lovely people who were extremely helpful, storing our fresh food in their cold room and offering to...

It my only be a 2 * but it has 5* service! Great overnight stay only 2 mins from the M6. Staff were very helpful even giving us bottles of water for our journey as it was a hot day. Would definitely stay again.

With the Scarthwaite Country House Hotel, you get what you pay for. It is an excellent two star family run small hotel in one of the most beautiful places in Lancashire. It is very near the M6 so would make an ideal stopping point for travellers going along that awful road. We were going to a wedding a mile away... More

Quietly located but convenient for M6 and Lancaster. Comfortable room and good breakfast. Stayed just one night with no time to explore but it looks as if the immediately surrounding area would provide pleasant walking.

We booked this hotel for an overnight stop on the journey to Scotland. We were very happy with our stay and booked it for the return journey too. It is ideally situated about a mile from an M6 motorway junction, and as it has a restaurant there is no need to drive again to find an evening meal. We arrived... More
