we arrived at the hotel on december 30 to a genuine warm welcome from caroline,part owner of the establishment...we were shown to our room on the second floor,room 8,it was exactly as shown on the internet,very clean and wonderfully warm (it was minus 3 when we arrived).the breakfast was to die for....choice of cereals,fresh fruit and the full english...cooked to perfection by martin,co owner of the hotel...it realy does set you up for a good days walking...the only downside for me was the ensuite,smallest ive ever seen,but then i am six foot plus.....it served its purpose......lots of books and leafletts at hand on local walks and lots of information on pubs and resturants in windermere town..some realy nice eateries in windermere itself but for a bigger choice try bowness on windermere,just a twenty mins stroll down the hill,ur spoilt for choice...the spanish tapas bar is certainly worth a visit...for a nice afternoon snack....for a more traditional feel try the angel inn...roaring log fires,great choice of local ales and good food....cant visit windermere without a trip on the lake....do it....wotever the weather...we went to ambelside..then did langdale pike,we didnt get great views due to the mists....hey o...was a good walk though. new years day was very very cold,with clear blue sky,tress and the ground covered in a heavy frost,twenty five mins walk from hotel is orrest head view point....a nice easy stroll,if you go there i hope you get the same views as we did,words cannot express the beauty we experianced.......cat wait till our next visit......dave and donna.
