I stayed at the Squirrel Lodge for 3 nights in a twin bedroom with a friend. It truly defined the vision of a cozy Lake District B&B. Pat was extremely accommodating and the breakfasts were DELICIOUS.
We arrived early Friday morning in order to begin a long hike up Blencathra. Pat welcomed us inside so that we could dump some of our gear. After learning about our intended destination, she pulled out a book giving us the best route up to the summit. Without having this book on the journey, we would've easily been lost on the trail as the weather turned bad fast.
In the mornings, I tried both the meaty and fishy breakfast options. I can honestly say you can't go wrong with either. The wonderful breakfasts really jump started our day and helped push us through our grueling daily hikes in the mountains.
Being able to come back after each hike to a comfy room with great decor was extremely relaxing. In fact, Pat even folded my stray shirts and scarves in addition to making the bed while we were out on the trails.
We received excellent advice about the weather and how to hike the mountains we were able to summit during the 4 day stay, including Scafell Pike.
I highly recommend staying at the Squirrel Lodge if you are looking for an amazing B&B located close to the greatest peaks in England.
