Good Hotel Guide Review
In a pretty village between Lake Windermere and Hawkshead, this unpretentious 18th-century inn stands atop a hill, the views over lakeland countryside stretching out before it. Past the gabled entrance, a wide, double-sided wood-burning stove takes pride of place in the dog-friendly bar and dining room. Local ales and modern pub fare (wild mushrooms, fried hen’s egg, charred beetroot sourdough, say, or steak and Flakebridge cheese pie) are served here; in former stables, sofas, games and a log-burning stove create a cosy retreat. Most of the contemporary bedrooms are in an annexe attached to the main building; family rooms have a screened-off area for children. Hiking and cycling trails abound.
