Ravenstone Manor near Basenthwaite is a warm, welcoming hotel full of quirky nooks and crannies, unusual features and bags of Cumbrian character. Nestled near the foot of Skiddaw, it is surrounded by some of the most breath-taking scenery that the Lake District has to offer. As soon as we entered the hotel we were made to feel welcome by owners Tina, Adam, Cherin and Kim. Excellent service was their top priority and we very much appreciated the personal touch. Nothing was too much trouble for them - they even make a special effort to cater for anyone with food intolerances. We also loved our cosy room, the intimate wood-panelled feel of the place, its unusual features such as a snooker room and the beautiful grounds surrounding it. We felt as if we'd escaped from the rat race and entered a natural paradise. Our room was clean and modern with wonderful views of the fells and glimpses of the lake at Bassenthwaite. In the evening we had a delicious meal made by the hotel's chef. Again, the attention to detail and service were spot on. We also enjoyed chatting with the owners and other guests in the comfortable and impresive lounge which has a fireplace that is a replica of one at Greystoke Castle near Penrith. The building is steeped in history and we enjoyed hearing all about it from Kim, Tina, Cherin and Adam. The hotel is also very much their home but for one night we felt as if it was out home too.
