At last a traditional hotel with no giant TV screen to ruin the atmosphere of a classic old world residence. A wealth of genuine beams, horse brasses and antique furniture. It was more like staying in a friends house with extended family. This was reminiscent of the classic weekend in the country worthy of a P.G. Woodhouse novel. This includes being summoned to the dining room by dinner gong for delicious local homemade meals. The perfection of the hotel is only surpassed by the stunning views of the Lake and surrounding fells. Forget the car once you arrive and enjoy many hours of walking, take the steamer or just relax by the lake shore.
