A great hotel that is situated in an absolutely idyllic location within the Lake District. We stayed here for a long weekend on a Groupon voucher. The hotel staff were very welcoming. The room (with lakeside view and balcony) was great - a nice soft bed and a fantastic modern bathroom with jacuzzi bath, which was much appreciated after our long walk around Haweswater Lake. My partner loved being able to catch the second half of the six nations on the bathroom tv whilst soaking in bubbles! Food was tasty (we took the opportunity to eat the venison) and not pricey, which it could have been given the remoteness and lack of competition of the hotel/restaurant. The heating in the room did seem quite high and uncomfortable in the evenings, however we suspect this was to try and compensate for the cold and windy weather outside as the rooms are only single glazed. Nevertheless, we wouldn't have wanted to be cold, so can't really complain! Overall, this is a gem of a retreat if you want a relaxing or active adventure - not too far a drive from the motorway, or the next major village (Shap) with a co-op where we could buy sandwiches and supplies for our walk around the lake which we would definitely recommend (about 5 1/2 hours long) for its beautiful and unspoilt scenery! The birdlife and red squirrels at breakfast each morning were an absolute bonus and delight to watch!
