We stayed here on our recent Coast to Coast walk. This is definitely one of the best stays we had. Christine greeted us with home cooked cakes and a carafe of coffee. The room was a good size and in spite of the main road was very quiet as it faced the back - excellent views too towards Fairfield. Good to have fresh fruit and home mixed muesli. There is also plenty of information and a Wainwright scrapbook. As we had good weather the next morning we did a major deviation to the C2C and walked straight from the small lane round the back of the house up to Stone Arthur and then over Fairfield and St Sunday Crags to Patterdale - a super walk best on a good day (one easy craggy outcrop to negotiate after Fairfield).
