Came to relax, walk, chat and eat. Complete success! Food out of this world. Rooms large and comfortable. Warm. No fire unfortunately but water and rooms piping hot. Wine list a bit pricy for us! Lots of lovely walks straight out the door. Launch trips on derwent water good fun. Mike and Kath very friendly.

We have been here before for a short break, this time we stayed for a week. We were looked after very well and really enjoyed our visit, extremely comfortable with superb food. There are so many places to visit from here. You could not have a better location. The foot of Cat bells very near and walk down to Derwent... More

This is a small family run hotel in a lovely tranquil setting. The owners, Mike and Kath, made us feel very welcome. Our room, Beech, had a lovely outlook. It was very clean and comfortable, the bathroom was a good size and very well equipped. There were plenty of lovely towels, a good size and cosy and warm from the... More

What a lovely lodge in the middle of nowhere next to a huge estate with oodles of pheasants and birds happily wandering around! The room was lovely with a huge comfortable bed! Dinner was served at 7pm for 7.30 and drinks were served in one of two comfortable sitting rooms whilst you perused the phenomenal wine list and lovely 4... More

Would like to thank Mike, Kath & Debbie for looking after us so well on our holiday. This Hotel is amazing, well worth every penny from the day we arrived to going home.The cuisine is out of this world, every night was a different menu. (we stayed 7 nights). Will definitely be going back. Highly recommend this hotel

A lovely hotel in a very peaceful setting. Booked at very short notice for a couple of nights. Rooms were immaculate and the food was amazing - the portion sizes were just right. Mike and Kath were friendly, welcoming and efficient.

We spent four nights in this ideally situated and well-appointed family-run hotel and we were extremely impressed. Our room was comfortable and well-furnished and the bathroom was spacious and well-designed. Each evening we enjoyed a four-course meal of outstanding quality and inventive cuisine. Finally the efficient, warm and friendly hospitality provided by Kath, Mike and Debbie created an ideal base... More

This upscale and well appointed house really do set a standard for others to follow. The husband and wife team and staff run a tight ship and know exactly what their customers want. The rooms and en-suite bathrooms are fastidiously maintained to the highest standards, not a mark on the walls, not a worn material or dusty ornament in the... More

We have just enjoyed an excellent three days in an exceptionally good hotel. Kath and Mike were welcoming, attentive and knowledgeable. The chef is to be congratulated on the cuisine - most of which was locally sourced. The Hotel is very well located, beautifully clean, very comfortable and is a bit like `home from home`. We were lucky (?) with... More

This is a beautifully presented property run by attentive owners. The food was excellent. The location close to Catbells was ideal. The room was comfortably furnished and very clean. My only reason for not awarding five stars was the shower which for my taste would have benefitted from more pressure. Other than that it is a hotel I recommend and... More
