The setting for this hotel is beautiful, in the middle of nowhere nestled in the rolling hills of the lake district. The welcome was really friendly and nothing was too much trouble. There is plenty of parking and the village is really sleepy with nothing else there. There are only 3 rooms, mine was really lovely and decorated in a cottage style with pine furniture, book early to avoid disappointment. Had an evening meal, a table had been reserved and the food was very wholesome with good portions and a nice variety to choose from. The breakfast was equally good and again nothing was too much trouble. The rates are very reasonable and include breakfast, a good base for discovering the lake district. I travelled on my own and felt extremely comfortable in the pub and hotel. You will need to dirve to the higher part of the peaks to get a phone signal, no matter what you do it is non existant in the area - on a plus point though the hotel does offer free wifi and the connection is good. The bathroom has recently been updated and is really nice.
