We booked at the last minute for a weekend in the Lake District. As on previous occasions there was a warm welcome, a comfortable room, excellent food (both dinner and breakfast) and the feel of elegant luxury in the residents’ lounge.
We usually eat in the Hikers’ Bar when we arrive there at lunch time on a winter walk. It is a time of year to huddle indoors and enjoy a hot luncheon. However we enjoyed a drink outside in the late afternoon sun. They continue to keep a range of good beers and keep them in good condition.
This is definitely worth a return visit either for an overnight stay or for lunch on a winter’s walk.
