Bit late writing this review, but better late than never. It deserves a great review as we had a wonderful 2 night break here at the beginning of April. On arrival we were warmly greeted by Julie who showed us to our room and explained everything to us regarding times of evening meal/breakfast etc. Our room was situated in the old coach house which was very comfortable and contained all we needed for a relaxing stay. Breakfast was delicious served by very polite friendly staff. The grounds and walled garden are beautiful and very nice for a walk around after breakfast. We chose to eat in the restaurant on our second night. What a dining experience and a tastebud delight!! Paul and Julie again were on hand to greet us on arrival in the lounge, Paul also enquired if our shower was now satisfactory, (we had a problem with the temperature) and he had sorted that out earlier that day. We had canapes and pre-dinner drinks in the cosy lounge and enjoyed chatting to other guests who agreed what a lovely place this was. Then to the food.... Delicious! All credit to Ash, the chef who served up one of the best 3 course meals we have ever had. The restaurant is definitely deserving of the two AA Rosettes award it possesses. Staff serving our evening meal were again, very polite and friendly. The hotel was a great base for us to go and explore the Northern Lakes and get a good deal of fell walking done. Just wish we could have stayed longer.
Just also need to mention how flexible and accommodating the owners were when we had to change our booking due to a mix up with my Easter school holiday dates.
