Scarthwaite is definitely not a smooth five star experience but it 's great in its unpretentiousness. Really friendly welcome and service, comfortable, good honest food, and five minutes from the motorway - what's not to like?

We stayed in a family room which was well equipped and was a very good size, with a good sized full bathroom suite. The room was very clean and fresh. Staff were very helpful throughout and the breakfast was a good choice. There... More

Pat and I saw a voucher in the local magazine and decided to give this place a try as it was one of the restaurants we hadn't tried. The staff were polite on the phone and the lady at the bar was friendly, but the place was almost empty other than passers by for the mobile home park nearby. The... More

Thank you for your visit and for taking the time to leave a review. I’m pleased to hear that the staff looked after you well and were polite and courteous. I can only apologise that we did not have more customers around during your visit, but 2.30pm tends to be the quieter end of our lunchtime trade. You will also... More

We recently had our daughters Christening party at The Scarthwaite, they couldn't have been more helpful and obliging, the food was excellent and we all throughly enjoyed the day. Also a great place for young children with the lovely gardens to explore and no busy roads nearby.

We have had a wonderful stay at Scarthwaite Country House Hotel. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. The room was lovely, would have liked to have been able to open the window but this hasnt diminished our opinion. The evening meal was very nice and we finished with a fantastic breakfast. We would thoroughly recommend a stay here. Great... More

Gorgeous old B and B with friendly staff and stunning rooms! The en suite was gorgeous as was the high ceilings and classy decor. The reception was more than helpful and accommodating! Although we was staying for long the surrounding area seemed beautiful

Definitely a good hotel with a helpful staff and always giving you the right tip for your excursions. Breakfast is good and freshly prepared. Rooms are clean, with plenty of biscuits available to have with your tea. Peaceful nights and a warm welcome each morning. Hope to come back.

Having recently got a caravan on the site I've been twice with many many more visit to be had. The food is 👌🏻 and staff are excellent. Could do with a facelift and modernising and seems under utilised but I love the place. Well recommend a visit!
