Despite having messed up my booking (and arriving a week early) the owners were fantastic in finding us a room for the night. We ended up in the honeymoon suite, which was gorgeous. Large picture windows, comfortable bed and fantastic facilities including a lovely pub downstairs and dining area. Great food. Great atmosphere. With the window open that night we... More

We booked the Scarthwaite as it was about half way to home from Scotland. It has an old world charm and that is matched by really good old fashioned service. The staff are very polite, considerate and friendly without being familiar. Our room was large and well equipped with old style furniture as opposed to the often stark corporate image... More

We had a meal here after our small wedding and the food was excellent. The owner is fantastic and very helpful. The staff on the day (19/8/16) were excellent and we can't wait to visit again. Beautiful location and beautiful hotel and grounds.

The room was clean and well presented. The food was good and the staff were friendly. We were not rushed out to leave. An ideal place. This is an old house with good decor that is in keeping with the building, fixture and fitting are modern

Stayed twice travelling between Scotland and London. The staff were very friendly, The atmosphere is relaxed. Rooms are comfortable. The meals are enjoyable. The staff are keen to point out beautiful local walks, which were delightful. We had our dog with us. We left him in his bed in the car during meals, so it was no problem for us... More

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?

I stayed at the Scarthwaite with my wife and her sister during a short visit to Lancaster. 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
