We stayed for a two night break booked through travelzoo. Wonderful staff couldnt do enough for you, hotel a lovely georgian house, superb views, log fires, cosy lounges.
We ate dinner the first night, very good if a little OTT, haute cuisine. Regency dining room was lovely.Breakfast both days very good with lots of choice.
Had a classic bedroom, quite large with a king size bed, very nice furniture and fittings. Bathroom good size. Everywhere spolessly clean.
Didnt manage the free boat trip as we didnt fancy 2 hours on a boat in February, although the weather had been quite kind to us.
The afternoon cream tea was lovely, served by the Manager, who was very pleasant as were all the staff.
Ate the second nigh at a lovely little italian in Penrith center, cant rememer the name but quite good.
All in all a very enjoyable break, especially if you can get a deal. Would recommend.
