We stopped at the Chetwyne as it was very close to a wedding we were attending. The accommodation was excellent, we were in an annex which had been newly completed and was everything you would want in a room; 6 foot bed, spacious room and bathroom etc. We dined in the hotel restaurant on the Saturday evening and had a very good meal and the staff were very friendly and efficient. The restaurant lacked a little atmosphere as there were only four couples in that night. The owners were around and very chatty and friendly and were happy to be told of the minor criticism regarding no easily accessible plug socket for the hair dryer near a mirror.
Barrow-in-Furness also turned out to be a nice town, a bit short on good shops but what town isn't now a days. The Dock Museum was worth a visit and a walk on the beach at Biggar Bank was envigourating and peaceful. Furness Abbey was also a great place to visit.
