We loved this place, a really old building with loads of character and a great central location in the lakes. The room we stayed in was huge with a large bathroom and a balcony as well so perfect for small families. The staff were excellent and very friendly (especially Chelsea on the breakfast staff 😉). The food was great and... More

Brilliant accommodation, with a separate bedroom for the kids, great food in the restaurant and an extremely warm welcome and very friendly staff. Watching the badgers feeding at night was a great bonus!

Large bedroom, good food, helpful staff and great view of badgers. Well located for Grasmere and Ambleside. Lovely walks just opposite the hotel. Worth booking a table for your evening meal and also worth trying a couple of the real ales.
