We visited in early May as part of a Headwater walking group (8 strong). We had read the reviews before going (both Headwater's and those for Trip Advisor) and the high praise had been influential in our choice of the holiday. They were not mistaken! This is a truly lovely hotel in a stunning setting. The rooms are not 'soft' luxurious, but are spacious, clean and well-equipped with comfortable beds. I would imagine that most have lovely views - ours (Room 9) certainly did. But what really makes the hotel is the setting and the standard of welcome, service and support provided by Sue and Gordon (owners) and their staff. From David and Christine (front of house & chef) to the reception and waiting/room staff they were top rate, without exception. Nothing was too much trouble; and food and facilities were a of a uniformly high standard.
For us, this was backed up by high quality walking guides and an excellent local taxi service that took us to and from those walks that did not start from the hotel. If you want to just enjoy the hotel and its facilities, the grounds have lovely gardens with the most spectacular wild flower 'meadow' that stretches across and tumbles down the hillside. There is a swimming pool and plenty of chairs/tables/loungers on the various patios that overlook the wonderful views.
Many thanks to our hosts for such a memorable stay. We would love to return if we can persuade someone to share the pleasure!
