Good to getaway to walking, eating and chilling! Lovely breakfasts and accomodation. Looked after so well and lots of places to relax and lose yourself in. Great history with the National Trust and open spaces

Enjoyed yet another lovely holiday staying with Shirley & Tony at Dunmail House. We return each year and would not dream of staying anywhere else in the Lakes - even if it means travelling to where we want to walk. We really do think nowhere else would be better. The house is constantly spic and span, very comfortable indeed and... More
