Kings Head - Thirlspot
We were going to camp for the weekend, but as the lakes like to throw at you the weather was a bit damp on the friday, so I got a last minute booking at the Kings Head. I was able to select which room and was pleased with it and we could take out dog. The bar area had been refurbished to a high standard, the food was excellent and served very quickly. The staff were outstanding and they seemed to work long shifts. The breakfast was just as good. The only downside was the residents lounge was very out of place, pinky coloured walls and old furniture and strange piped music in the resteraunt. We did camp on the second night but ate in the pub. The Beer garden is delightful and full of lovely flowers. We were able to have breakfast in the resteraunt on Sunday, which was good after a good nights sleep in our tent and it was reasonable at £7.95. We would definately return. Please note if you want to get the local Stagecoach 555 bus outside it is VERY expensive as we were going to use it to goto Grasmere (two stops) and they wanted £15.70 return!! Is this the most expensive journey in the country?? We refused to pay and took the car instead. No wonder the buses have hardly any locals or UK pepole on them.
