We stayed here while travelling south from Scotland. The hotel is situated not far from the M6 but well away from the crowds in other parts of the Lake District. It is close to Lake Ullswater and has its own extensive attractive grounds stretching down to the lake. We were welcomed on arrival and had a room overlooking the gardens and lake. The bed was comfortable. We had a leisurely drink before dinner and were then escorted into the restaurant where we had an excellent meal. There are several lounge areas to relax in or chat to other guests. Breakfast was also very good with a small selection of cooked food. We had booked the dinner bed and breakfast package and this was very good value (specials are sometimes advertised). Our only regret was that we only stayed one night as it is such a lovely area. We hope to be back sometime, perhaps for a longer stay.
