A well needed week away was spent in the Western Lake District, and Rosegarth Guest House in Ravenglass excelled. A tiny village, a comfortable place to stay and lots of fresh air & good food.
Waking up every morning to the most amazing, uninterrupted ever changing views across the estuary was fantastic, it made me want to sleep with the cutains open! The room was lovely, clean and bright, with a comfy chair for book reading by the window, binoculars for bird watching and yummy fairtrade teas, coffee and hot chocolate in the room. A TV with freeview channels & DVD player was also available, although I mostly used it for the radio. Good storage and hanging space meant I was able to unpack - not always an option in the smaller rooms of some hotels.
The owners were great, very personable and extremely informative about the local area. Having recently moved here and taken over Rosegarth (although originally being from west Cumbria I believe), their enthusiasm was catching. When I asked about hiking I was furnished with information, options and maps to borrow, and on a wet return my boots, socks and jacket were whisked away to be dried overnight!
The breakfasts were delicious & filling, using local produce, and provided several options to try. Packed luch was also available to order, to take on my days out. The house seemed old, victorian I think, well looked after and full of history & charm, as is the whole village, perched between mountains and sea.
It takes a little while to drive to this side of the Lake District, but is well worth it for the serenity and hospitality of Rosegarth. I can't wait for my next escape, I'm definately going back!
