We spent 4 nights in this gorgeous Georgian hotel, home of Kath & Mike Bilton. It is has an intimate ambiance in a scenic quiet location 7 minutes walk from the shore of Derwentwater. The house is beautifully furnished and the decor shows off the talents of Kath who has flair as an interior designer who loves taking on projects on commission out of season ( tel 07745436480 ). The meals are prepared by Clive the chef who provides 4 course evening gourmet delights, you can ask for vegetarian meals by request. We stayed in Lilac room which is the largest on the first floor , and in our opinion the best room in the house . The 3 rooms on the second floor have dormer windows and some sloping ceilings , previously we have stayed in Elm, which is cosy, but lacks the larger windows of the first floor rooms , Oak is better & has a lovely light large bathroom . The second floor rooms may be a cheaper option but I would prefer a first floor room . For details of the rooms go to booking tab, and click on the link that says on-line booking facility, then if you click on the room name more details are visible in a pop up box. In summary , I love this hotel, which is much commended, and rightly so.
