just returned from our second visit to Claremont House. To say that Phil and Joy are doing a great job is an understatement, they are the perfect hosts. We were greeted like friends even though we had only had a 1 night stay with them in May last year. We had an extra night this time,but would have loved to stay longer.Everything was as good as we remembered,our rooms were immaculate,we stayed in the Garden room and our son and his girlfriend stayed in Skiddaw.The breakfasts provide everything you could wish for, still think the toaster on the table is an inspired decision.Whilst Joy is busy in the kitchen, Phil is so attentive making sure you have all you need.Thanks so much for another great break,got to definatley stay for longer next time, which hopefully won't be to far away. Just a final note to Phil, thanks for being on red squirrel watch,it was lovely to see.
