Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Just what you want in a country inn – good beer, excellent food and nice bedrooms.’ Richard Rose’s ‘fantastic’ 300-year-old inn stands alongside a stone church in the peaceful Lyth valley. Individually designed bedrooms, named after former vicars, have a pleasing, rustic feel, perhaps with thick wooden beams or pretty floral prints; each has a heated-floor bathroom with a free-standing roll-top bath and separate shower. In the ‘lovely, calm’ restaurant, with its ‘roaring’ fire, sample chef Arthur Bridgeman Quin’s classic country dishes. Morning tea or coffee is brought to the room on request; a cream tea is offered every afternoon. 2 bars, 2 terraces, restaurant. Free Wi-Fi (in bar), in-room TV (Freeview). Background music. Civil wedding licence; conference facilities. Parking. 5 miles E of Bowness-on-Windermere. Children welcomed. 9 bedrooms. Per room B&B £110–£310. Dinner £35.
