“A Memorable Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2007

On arriving in Beetham you are immediately struck by the charm and character of the 16th century 'Wheatsheaf', which along with the church it sits beside, is located in the most prominent position of the village.
Recently taken over, within the last 3 weeks, the new owners and their staff are both charming and attentive and offer a level of service I have only ever found before in the very best hotels/Inns and only a few of those.
The food was truly excellent and consistantly so, the breakfast magnificent.
The Wheatsheaf is well situated to explore 'the lakes' and surrounding countryside and a wonderful place to come back to when you have been out and about all day.
All in all a very very memorable stay indeed, so keep up the good work Phil!
Would we return again? we most definately would!

Booked this after seeing it recommended in one of Alistair Sawday's guide books but was rather disappointed in what we got.

We'd upgraded to the Leighton room at £75 p/n rather than a standard at £69.50 but it was difficult to know what we'd got for our extra money. There was no pressure to the hot water so had a feeble shower one morning and gave up and managed a cold wash in the sink the second day.

The food recommendations and the awards it had received were one of the reasons for booking but it was nothing outstanding and overpriced (plus the fact we were overcharged by approx £20) so we chose to eat somewhere else for our second night. Breakfast was nothing to rave about either.

Overall, a disappointing 2 nights. The room was clean but it's facilities weren't up to scratch and the food was nothing special. We stopped at 'The Punch Bowl' in Crosthwaite for drink whilst driving around and I can't wait to go back and stay for a night or two!

This Hotel. Country Inn is fantastic. Four AA diamonds, four guide books. Gourmet food and good bar/wines -real ales. Friendly family owned-enthusiatic hands on owners. Candles, fresh flowers, fresh locally sourced produce - didn't want to go home. Stayed three nights enjoying light bar meals to full a la carte romantic dinners. Going back soon - this place deserves recognition.
