We were 2 couples (and a dog) on a 2 night stay just for a break in early November. The welcome we received by Gaynor was second to none, we arrived early but were shown to rooms without fuss. Rooms were cosy, spotlessly clean and warm, just what you want if walking in the Lake District in November. We booked a table for evening meal, and sat in the very cosy beamed bar/restaurant (new restaurant being refurbished at the time), a real fire blazing and warming the full area. Bar was well stocked and a smashing pint of Black Sheep (served in Black Sheep glass every time) pleased me. We decided on starters and main meal, food was home cooked, very tasty and substantial enough to feed hungry folk after a days walking. We had a well behaved Staffy dog (Beau) with us and she was so much the star of the show, she was spoiled rotten by ALL the staff, in particular Gaynor and her girls Morgan and Jasmine. The staff were also very friendly with us humans and introduced themselves by name which i thought a great personal touch. When we left, it did feel like we were leaving friends behind, and i'm sure Morgan will miss Beau, so we do plan to visit again. Wonderful Location, Bar, Rooms, Owners, Staff and Family.
