We were treated with a Wowcher by a friend for a one night stay including dinner and breakfast. Beautiful room and very comfy. Lovely bathroom and toiletries. Made very welcome even though we arrived slightly early. Spent some time in bar looking at birds in garden using bird feeder. Charming. Great restaurant food.

Got a great deal on living social for dinner, bed and breakfast. Arrived late afternoon after a brilliant drive over the fells to be met by the friendly owner.
