We stayed as a family in the Lyth cottage over the August Bank holiday weekend. Since our last visit earlier in the year the sofa bed has been changed and the whole cottage painted - both are great and show the owners are happy to spend money on keeping the place up to date. Food on Sunday evening was served... More

We had a meal here sunday 24th august we paid £41 for 3 of us and that included a small starter to share and three mains (although one was for a child from the kids menu) and three drinks. The food was OK but both my partner and I agreed that for the price we would have expected it to... More

We stayed in the Strawberry bank suite for two nights on a weekend getaway to the Lake District. Excellent base, short drive to Lake Windermere. The room was spacious and lovely with a freestanding bath and four poster bed. Had dinner in the pub on the first night and enjoyed the food/atmosphere so much that we ate here again the... More

Our rooms - the Bowland and Gummer's Howe - were tiny and although described as self catering, this would be difficult in such a small space. The bed was up steep stairs in the rafters with a very low ceiling height and a wardrobe you could only open on one side due to being jammed against the bed. The water... More

We had a great stay at The Masons Arms in their WInster cottage. The rooms and cottage is very well furbished, modern and stylish. The staff are friendly and helpful. The location is dreamy and the stay was a huge family success. We ate at the Pub twice and had a great experience there also. The outside decor is high-end... More

I stayed here for one night with a friend with the intention of using it as a base for cycling. It was perfect for that and we found it ideal. We did go a bit overboard on the cycle on arrival and got back to the hotel just before last food orders, which I am attributing to the quality of... More

Lovely views, good food but overpriced. Room was not as described with restricted head height in bedroom and kitchen and I kept banging my head as the space was so small. Stayed in crostwaite suite and the bathroom shower was minute. Due to hot weather, I had to remove the sheet from the duvet and found numerous blood stains on... More

Great location - about 15 min from Bowness/Windemere - that's difficult to beat for its quality, price and gastropub right next door! We stayed in Lyth Cottage (dog friendly) and loved the expansive view over the valley from the lounge and the outdoor patio. It was such a quiet and relaxing place to chill after our adventures. Staff were very... More

Having had possibly one of the best lunch meals I've had last August here I requested a return for dinner this year. Oh dear. What a difference. I could not fault the food or service last year however this year has to be one of the worst dining experiences I've had. Not only did we wait some time for the... More
