We booked a couple of nights here on the strength of the positive reviews on Trip Advisor, and it exceeded all expectations.
A free upgrade to a lovely room, as we were the only guests that weekend. The room was expensively furnished, looking out over Skiddaw. A fabulous bathroom with thick fluffy towels. Tea, coffee and a selection of biscuits were provided and replenished the next day.
The best part was when we actually went to bed, such a comfortable bed, 6 feet wide and a quilt that you could disappear into!
I say that was the best part, but even better was breakfast! We opted for the full English, two grilled on-the-vine tomatoes on a piece of fried bread, back bacon, egg, mushrooms and a thick, very meaty Cumberland sausage, makes my mouth water thinking about it even now, and it certainly set us up for the day!
Brian and Irena are fantastic hosts, nothing is too much trouble for them. We will definitely return.
