We already knew of the Watermill through CAMRA as it has its own brewery on site ( boasts 16 real ales on draft at all times) and have been trying to book in for ages and were lucky enough to find a pet friendly room available for half term . The staff were brilliant , the dog was allowed into the bar and breakfast room and was spoilt rotten at every appearance, including extra sausages at breakfast! The rooms were large and clean , no evidence of other dogs staying in the room at all and the power shower was a welcome addition after long walks. Speaking of walks the pub is brilliantly placed for walking over to Stavely, Kentmere and Windermere . You wouldnt need to move the car at all if you enjoy walking and there is plenty of parking available . The menu for evening meals and lunches were inviting and the meals are well cooked, especially the ale pie and fish which uses their own beer batter . Breakfasts were delicious and saw us through until the evening meal on most days . The locals are also very welcoming , my partner being invited on a bike ride with a few guys from a local village , which he thoroughly enjoyed. All in all a great time was had by us and we will be making a return visit soon.
NB if you have children they are welcome in the bar or lounge area and the accommodation is well suited for families, dogs are not allowed in the lounge area in the evening for those who wish to be left un-hounded !
