We had a wonderful time at Rothay Lodge last week. The house was ideal: we loved the garden, its location on the edge of Grasmere was great and the rooms were comfortable and well equipped for our needs. The weather was mostly kind to us, we enjoyed rowing on the lake and walks in the area, especially up to Alcock Tarn where the views were wonderful. We saw As You Like It at the Theatre by the Lake, braved the open top bus on a windy day and experienced live music at Tweedies bar. Dinner at Jumbles was exceptional. In short, we had a brilliant stay.
