We were enticed back by an invitation to sample the new chef's food and we are so glad that we took up the offer. Having been somewhat disappointed on our last stay we were delighted to have a delicious meal on this occasion and I hope we will be back before too long. We stayed in a "jolly good room"...

Excellent in every way. Couldn't say more. Excellent position near to Windermear and still not far from the shops. Good center for walking or driving around the lake district, then a good welcome back at the end of the day to the Ryebeck for a rest and OHHH THAT FOOD.
