we booked this as a treat to spend a few days mountain biking in the lake district having just spent 3 months away in Afghanistan and were looking forward to a well earned realxing break.
As soon as we arrived the owner seemed to have some kind of attitude against us, was extremely unfriendly and was annoyed that we had parked our car in an obstructive way despite there being at least a foot between the back of the car and the pavement.
My partner had enquired prior to arriving if there was secure storage for mountain bikes and was assured there was. However on arrival, the owner seemed to think it was satisfactory to leave bike worth over £1000 each chained up outside against a railing! The lake district is one of the best destinations for moutain biking and outdoor activites in the country so you would think the owner would have some sort of appreciation of this!
The accomodation itself seemed perfectly adequate, although there was no kind of communal lounge/tv area but with the owner's atitude we checked out immediately -even then he followed us in our car up the street to spy on us! weird?! there are plenty of other lovely hotels nearby. Don't bother with this one!
