Stayed here for 2 nights dinner bed and breakfast. Lovely setting in Borrowdale valley, with lovely views accross valley.( difficult to find without Sat Nav) Very relaxing setting and hotel is well laid out with lots of collections of soft furnishings and sofas set around a choice of 2 real fires. Very cosy, sitting in front of log buner, looking out into garden watching red squirrels play outside.
Food is superbe - cannot be faulted- Pork just melted in my mouth. Staff very friendly and helpful.
Main clients are hill walkers, but ok for those of us less active, just looking to relax!
Was annoyed at people who came in just for afternoon tea or drinks, as they kept on their walking boots - all over lounge! Thought walkers had better manners!
Only fault is with beds- recently refurbished but with double beds- would have prefered a king size for comfort.
Cant wait to go back for another relaxing break.
